Going Greek!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you - for such an amazing week!  I can't believe how much we have done - Theseus, Busking Day, DT and Greek Day - all in one week!

Greek Day

All of Y6 has been sprinkled with togas today as we 'went Greek', learning how to arm wrestle, imitate chickens and (for the boys), walk around in a skirt.  6L did particularly well in the Olympic Games, especialy Callum who won a gold medal in the Flags event.  Well done Callum!


 Pictures from Greek Day can be found here.





Busking Day

What a talented bunch we are!  Musicians, comedians, dancers, puppeteers, magicians and lots more!  Well done to everyone who took part, you raised a lot of money for a very good cause.  A special mention has to go to Jasmina and Anna-Maria who performed on the 'Main Stage' - you were fantastic.





We still have a long way to go but our DT models already look amazing.  Next week we should be able to pubklish some wonderful pictures of the final product.



On Tuesday morning, 6L proved that they are not only impressive actors but also directors, producers, script writers and, most especially, collaborators.  They worked together to write a four act play, worked together to practise and improve their acting skills and worked together to stage it at 4 different locations around the school.  I was so proud of the way you all treated each other and each other's ideas with respect.  Well done.




Alyssia and Desiree

As we get to the end of the school year, it is inevitable that our attention turns to Y7 and the move to secondary school.  Two of our class moved on to these greener pastures this week and both with be greatly missed by 6L and all of Y6.  Alyssia will be moving to New York this summer while Desiree moves to Japan.  We wish them both the very best of luck and can't wait to hear all about their great adventures very soon.


Once a 6L - always a 6L!

It was such an amazing week! Doing our Theseus and the Minotaur, Busking day, DT projects and Greek day, I can't believe we did in one week!I wish Alyssia and Desiree could have been here for Greek day. I wish them all the best of luck for the future.

There is no Mathematics or Literacy home learning this week, there is only one thing I want you to do - PRACTISE!!

Your main task is to ensure you are fully prepared for our Greek production on Monday, including organising your costume and props if you have them at home, learning your lines off by heart and remembering your movements for each scene such as entrances and exits. 


As soon as we finish our play, we will be starting our DT project.  You have seen the examples and discussed ideas, now get planning.  Please come to our DT day on Wednesday ready with lots of ideas and annotated plans.  I can't wait to see how they turn out!

 Have a great weekend everyone!

Theseus - Here we come!

What a week!!!!

NCTs are a distant memory as our attention turns to serious business - our end of year production.  This week, our class split into 4 groups to begin to write the 4 different scenes of Theseus and they are shaping up nicely.  Your home learning task this week is to carry on the script writing by email and to ensure that not only does every team member take part in the writing but also that they get some good lines in the play.  Remember - don't just write comedy, we need some drama and sad parts too.  Please also remember to copy me into group emails.

Interclass Football

We also had our interclass football tournament which went swimmingly (the puddles were impressive!).  Well done to everyone who took part with a particular congratulations to our mixed team who earned a Bronze Certificate - well done!!!!

4 down and 3 to go!

Well done, 6L, on a busy week and you've really earned some relaxation time over this long weekend!  This week, we continued hearing and watching the Olympic presentations you prepared. I remain impressed by the variety of Olympic sports chosen, the different ways that information is being presented and the delivery of information with clear and loud voices and lots of ways of maintaining the interest of your audience.

 Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee (click on image)


On Tuesday 5th June, Patana will celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.  You are allowed to wear red/white/blue themed clothing and/or accessories e.g. Union Jack t-shirts, hats or ties. However, as you have a Mathematics NCT in the morning you must come to school in your school uniform and you will be given the opportunity to change in to your Jubilee clothing after the test. If you'd like to see some of the celebrations in the UK, you may also like to tune into the BBC over the weekend.


Well done to the Y6 students for their mature and positive attitude while undertaking their Literacy NCTs this week.  They continue on Tuesday and Wednesday with the Mathematics tests.  Click here to view the timetable. Year 6, enjoy the long weekend, remain relaxed about these tests and remember not to place any pressure on yourselves. If you'd like to review your Mathematics learning, for example using MyMaths, then please do so but don't be doing hours and hours of it! Have some downtime!

Finally, thank you to all the parents who organised last Sunday's end of year party for Y6; everyone had a great time. I leave you with some photos from the event. I particularly like the last one!
