Welcome to Class 6
In Class 6, we love to learn new things, help each other and try hard.
Miss Charlesworth and Mrs Procter are our teachers in Class 6. We have Class Dojo as a reward system as well as our Positive Pebbles which we receive for a number of positive reasons such as having a growth mindset and being kind. Once the jar of pebbles is full a whole class reward will be chosen.
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit for these days and that earrings are removed. Unfortunately children will not be able to participate in PE lessons if they do not have the correct kit and footwear.
Today, an Owl Rescue Centre from Huddersfield brought in some exciting birds and gave us lots of information about them. We had lots of fun meeting them.
Orville is a very cute, 6 year old Little Owl.This owl has great camouflage and has bright yellow eyes because it is a daytime owl.
This owl is a Southern White Faced Owl. It has orange eyes which means it comes out at sunset. He had a moustache to feel for food when it is close by.
This is an European Eagle Owl and she is 6 years old. Miss Charlesworth got to hold this owl and said it is very heavy. This owl also had orange eyes which means it comes out during sunset. Its feet were too big to catch a mouse so it eats rabbits, pheasants and hares. He could live up to 55 years old.
This is a Tawny Owl which is the most common owl in the UK. This is the only owl to make the well known 'Twit Twoo' noise. We found out these owls come out at night so they are known as nocturnal.
This owl is a Barn Owl. We liked learning about this owl as he is the same Owl as Plop from the story (The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark) we have been reading in class. This owls stay together in couples for their whole lives. Only 1 out of 5 eggs that hatch make it to a year old. Bubbles has a heart shapes ruff and hunts using her sense of hearing. When Bubbles flew over our head we found out that they fly extremely quietly.
This is Storm the Harris Hawk. They are the wolves of the sky. They hunt in packs and then share their food equally between them. Native American Totem Poles sometimes have Harris Hawks on the top of them because of Harris Hawks who stand on top of each other when hunting for prey.

We had so much fun at the Halloween disco. Happy Halloween!
In literacy, we have been learning about subordinating conjunctions. We had to work in groups to choose the best conjunctions to join two ideas together. We now know that we use a subordinating conjunction to add extra information to a main idea. Take a look at the pictures to see our hard work.
This week we talked about Autumn and how we know Autumn is coming. Together we came up with a list of things you may find during Autumn such as orange or brown leaves, squirrels collecting food for hibernation, fungi and migrating birds. We then went outside to see if we could spot any of these signs. We really enjoyed collecting the different items and we also found a lot of ladybirds.
Our new literacy topic
We began our new literacy topic on James and the Giant Peach today. We found an envelope full of green 'crocodile tongues' that had been left in our classroom along with a giant peach (see picture above). We then read a passage from the story and talked about how the main character, James, felt as well as coming up with some questions we might want to ask him.
