Welcome to Year 6
Year 6 Home Learning Summer 2020
This is our reading book for this term.
Collect your learning pack and workbook from school.
The book is a gift
from Grange Community Primary.
“The reason is not difficult to see: if we drop out when we hit problems, progress is scuppered,
no matter how talented we are. If we interpret difficulties as indictments of who we are, rather than as pathways to progress, we will run a mile from failure. Grit, then, is strongly related to the Growth Mindset; it is about the way we conceptualise success and failure.”
- Mathew Syed

EDUCATIONAL & SUPPPORT RESOURCES
Year 6 wrote their own vegetarian stir fry recipe, prepare the ingredients and cook them.
During lunchtimes we have been doing some gardening. Morrisons have kindly donated compost and seeds recently, so on our last day at school (for now!) we have been preparing beds, and planting mixed flowers, spring onions, beetroot and sunflowers. Updates will be posted here!
Year 6 Litter Picking Day
Followed by our PLASTIC POLLUTION session with East Suffolk Council, Year 6 decided to have their own initiative of Litter Picking day.
We collected a considerable amount of litter around the streets of Felixstowe and around the seafront promenade.
We must think about being more considerate of others and specially our environment. Recycle fizzy drink cans (for example) and not leave them on the floor! Use a re-usable plastic bottle and not single use plastic bottle.
We are committed to learn better on HOW TO PREVENT THE USE OF PLASTIC and STOP IT from polluting our oceans!
We had visitors in our class to teach us how to do it!
Thank you to James Sullivan, Graduate Project Manager from East Suffolk Council and Daniel that taught us all about how to recycle plastic.
