Friday 12th June
Happy Friday Everyone
There's lots to tell you today, so I hope you are wide awake!
Just as I did last week, I have created this week's spelling test in Purple Mash. When you log on at https://www.purplemash.com/sch/elham, simply click on your 2Dos at the top of the home page. You will see this week's test which is called SpellingTest120620 - it may be below last week's so make sure you do the right one!
Summer Reading Challenge - Silly Squad
Another thing to flag up this week is the summer reading challenge that our local libraries run each year. As libraries are not open at present, they are running this online instead this year and it is live already. If you want to sign up for this year's challenge, visit https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/ or open the document below for more information.
East Kent Virtual Science Jamboree
Each year there is an East Kent Science Jamboree for primary school children which takes place at Pfizers in Sandwich. Normally our school cannot go as we are too far away. However, because of Covid-19, this year's Jamboree has gone online, so all schools can take part.
In class this morning we will be choosing and following one of the activities (I'll let you know which one we did later today). It would be great if you could join in by either doing the same activity or choosing one of the others. They all look like great fun. Join the Jamboree by visiting:
Have a great weekend everyone.

Good morning Year 6!
For those of you who have not returned to school, I have attached the transition powerpoint we have been working through in class. We did not finish it as we only got to slide 3, but we were able to have lots of discussion about worries and questions about starting in year 7. I am planning to finish working through it next week in school. If you are not back at school Mrs Godden and I would like to invite you to a Zoom meeting next Wednesday where we can talk about transition with you. We will send details out shortly.
Have a good day everybody!

Good morning year 6 who are working at home.
This morning in school we have been working on some poetry. We have looked at the poem The Magic Box by Kit Wright and we have used it as inspiration for our own poems. We have written them out and illustrated them and I am going to put them up in the classroom.
It would be lovely to have some poems from those of you who are at home. I have attached the poem for you to have a look at. Remember you need to use alliteration, personification, onomatopoeia and your senses. Your imagination is your limit and you can be as creative as you want!
Please send me your poems and I will print them out and put them up in school!
I'm looking forward to seeing your work.

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!
It was great to see most of you completing your spelling test in Purple Mash last Friday and really useful for me to see your scores, so I will be providing each week's test in tihis format from now on.
As usual, you will find all your lessons for this week below. Mrs Short and I will be beginning transition lessons for Year 6 this week and we are looking at ways of ensuring you can take part in these - look out for an email with more information about this coming soon.
Remember to keep in touch with us - we are always here to answer any questions and we love seeing your work and hearing about the exciting things you get up to at home with your families.

Reading and AR Book Quizzes
I am sure that you are all reading regularly at home as I know you are all very keen readers. Well done to the following children who have all completed at least one AR Book Quiz since school closed to most children: Sarah, Ivy, Beth, Hannah, Ella, Elias, Sonny and Tom. If you haven't done any quizzes for a while, please try your best to do one this week or next. Keep up the good work!
