Welcome to 6F

SCHOOL CLOSURE: COVID-19
I hope you are all doing well and are in good spirits under the current circumstances. It was so touching and moving to see how connected you all are as a class on the last day of school (Thursday 19th March 2020); how you all shared your emotions, anxieties and affection for each other. I am proud of all the hard work, effort and time each and everyone of you put in the last year and a half. You have shown great determination, courage, a positive mindset and resilience- all of which I know you will take with you during this time of uncertainty and beyond your time at Bruce Grove Primary.
Be kind and helpful at home. Stay positive. Stay safe.
Hopefully we will all see each other very soon.

This year all of our classes are named after musicians. We are Miriam Makeba class. Our Topic teams are named after some of her songs, which we thoroughly enjoyed listening to. Our favourites are Pata Pata and the Click Song.
The children spent the first 8 days researching about Makeba; her childhood, education, musical career, awards and achievements. They wrote biographies, sketched and painted portraits of her, using water colours. Have a look at some of their work on display inside and outside the classroom.
This week we have been linking Destination Reader with Black History Month. We have learnt a lot about how powerful women, who rebelled against the world, made the biggest change in the world that we live in today. Here are some slides that reflect our learning.
In Art we have been looking at Cave Paintings. During the Stone Age period they did not know how to read and write and so did not write down anything. Instead they drew images of their daily life, events that occurred and these told a story. The children have created some wonderful pictures of cave paintings based on their knowledge and research. They used sandpaper to create a stone/gritty effect with a rough texture as well as, using charcoal and chalk for colour. At the same time they were thinking of size, overlapping shapes and light and dark shades.
The class have worked well and fit nicely into our reading corner.
