You should have all received a letter or email about the upcoming events for Year 6 on the week beginning 13.07.20. Elfrida Primary will be giving out a Year 6 Leavers Booklet which will contain a collection of messages and pictures of your time at our school. Several pages will be have individual photographs of you. We would like you to write a short message that would accompany your picture. This can an inspirational quote, a favourite memory of your school years, a thank you to a particular teacher/teachers/TA's/other adults or a message to your friends. You can email this to me on the Purple Mash email or to the school email (please include your name). Alternatively, I could write down your message for you when I call your parent/s this week (of course if you are in school you will have an opportunity to do it there). If you have any questions please ring the school office.

As we begin the summer term, we would normally in year 6 be preparing for SATs. However we would also be getting ideas together for our end of year production.
Baobab-We challenge you to write a play which could be used for an end of year production.
The play must be interesting and should include at least 10-15 characters.
For an extra challenge you can also think of suitable songs which can be included in the play or write a song of your own!
The best play seen will be used in an Elfrida production in the future. The successful writer will be given acknowledgement and there is a possibility of a prize!
If you are interested-Please send your playscript entries via email on Purple Mash. Need help? tell the teachers when we call!
Closing date for entries is: Tuesday 19th May 2020

Hello to all Baobab Class! I hope you are all well and continuing to keep busy and safe. Thank you to those children who have completed activities that I have set on Purple Mash (I have added some more activities) and iHUB - well done to Brooklyn and Skye who are the top 2 leaders on the Class iHUB Leaderboard! Remember that there are logins for Sumdog, TT Rockstars, Purple Mash, Lexia and Big Maths to name but a few. If you do not have these logins, please ring the school and someone will be able to help you. I have also signed you all up for Emilie which is another website with a wealth of activities. As soon as I set some activities for you to do, I will let you know how to login. Below is another website which is a free talk for writing website. Please click on the link and have a go - it looks amazing with different and engaging writing activities! Check this page every few days for any updates and added activities.
School Closure Homework Activities
iHub completed activities.
Well done to those children who have completed some of the comprehension activities on iHub. Remember unless you are unwell you need to be completing activities that are set for you! I will be checking iHUB again tomorrow (Thursday 26th March and Friday 27th). Please make sure you read the texts carefully and answer the questions fully (there are some of you who have not done this)! Again well done to those who have completed 3 or more comprehensions successfully - I have awarded points and made a comment for each text.
The following are websites and other downloaded activities for the children to do in the event that school closes. Please ensure that your child/ren logs in daily. They should ideally be doing a Numeracy and English for a minimum of 2 hours! We will regularly update the activities and also we will be checking for completed work on Purple Mash. Additionally, children can use their homework books for revision and also completing the activities in them.
A message from The Body Coach - Joe Wicks:
Additional Online Activities
All children have a iHUB login and TT Rockstar login so please ensure your child/ren are using these. If they have not been in school - please call the office at Athelney where all passwords for iHUB,TT Rockstars and Purple Mash can be found.
Have a go at following these instructions to draw some simple pictures.
Welcome to Baobab class with Mrs Williams
and Miss Dolphy.
Friday 10th January 2020
Welcome to the Spring Term and Happy New Year! Your children have made a good start this week and the majority of them have come back focused and ready to work hard this term. As you are aware the SATS are looming and it is very important that your children attend school everyday so as to not miss any of their learning. Today they have been sent home with a curriculum letter, a spelling list and their new homework books.
Please ensure that your children are reading daily. Ask them what they are reading in class and at home. It is also very important that they read a range of books not just fiction but non-fiction as well.
Your children received their new homework books today (100120). These include Maths, Reading and GPS. As usual, homework is due on Wednesdays. If your child needs help there is a Homework Club on Mondays and Tuesdays between 12.30 - 1 o'clock. Additionally, Miss Dolphy runs a homework club on Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school.
It is very important that your children keep their old books as they are a very good revision resource.
