Thank you to all the parents and family members who were able to attend our class assembly this morning.
Year 6 have been working on their performance techniques whilst reading a range of poems aloud. The class have worked in small groups to discuss their given poem and thought about how it, and other whole class poems, could be performed. In doing this, the children managed to learn lots of their poems off by heart. This English work contributed to our class assembly today; I think the children did a great job performing in front of a rather large audience. Well done Year 6.
Welcome back to your final year at Ladbrooke.
Thank you to the parents who were able to attend my parent meeting, where I went over our class information leaflet. If you have nay questions please don't hesitate to find me in school or contact me via email -
The children have settlled briliantly into year 6 life and have, already, been working very hard.
I mentioned in my parent meeting that I would add the suggested websites to help support your children at home to our class page. The children already have their DoodleMaths, Teams and TTRockstars to be getting on with, so please don't feel like this is compulsory, they are just suggestions for further learning in English and Maths.
Thank you for your continued support.

Monday June 20th Saxon and Viking day
Today, Years 5 and 6 experienced what life was life for people living during the Viking era. They came to school dressed like Vikings, met their leader Phil, and began working in their village. They worked throught diffferent tasks throughout the morning, which included using clay to make pots and faces, broach making, creating ink to write with, producing medicine bags and plent more.
In the afternoon, the children became archaelogists and imagined that they were digging thorough their village from the morning. They used techniques to explore different items and discussed what they might be and what building they might have come from in the village.
A really great day; the children were so well behaved and really enjoyed themselves. A big thank you to the adult helpers.
Art and Design Project - Viking clay sculpture
Tuesday 21st June
As part of our Saxon and Viking history topic this term, Year 6 have been revisiting their portrait skills in sketching a viking face. Mrs Corke was able to use her expertise and get the very best out of the children in her art lessons. Today, the children learned sculpture techniques to create and combine shapes when producing a 3D clay face of their sketched Viking face. I was really impressed with every child in the class and their newly found skills.
