Olive Tree Class - Year 6



Home Learning Week Beginning 13th July

Hello Olives,

Have you had a good week? I hope you enjoyed taking part in our Boat Project!

I have now finished putting the production together and you will all see this very soon! I am so proud of you all: it is not the production you all wished for but you have put so much hard work and effort into your parts that each and every one of you shines brightly! Thank you for the effort you put into costumes and props – you looked fabulous!

This week I went for a walk with my sister and her cavachon, Coco. It started raining and so we got very wet! However, it was great fun because my sister has taught Coco to wait at the road until she tells her to cross – she’s so clever! What have you been doing this week?

Mayowa wrote a brilliant story (can you remember him telling us about it in our zoom session?). I have attached it here for you to read if you want!

Have any of you written any stories or made something that you want to share? Remember to send it to me on Purple Mash if you do – I love reading about what you have been up to!

Last week you had a logo competition – how did you get on?

I hope you have a really lovely weekend and I will see you all on Monday for our final zoom session! You may need a pen and paper so have some nearby just in case we need it.

Can’t wait to see you all again!

Miss Read and Mrs Sayad

Term 2

Olive Tree started our topic this term with an exciting visitor from Wiltshire Wildlife Trust! The children completed a variety of games and activities and learnt about endangered species. We then looked at our local environment and how we can start protecting it (I think there will be a number of 'hedgehog friendly garden' conversations!). Thank you to ROOTs for giving us this amazing opportunity. Watch this space for our pledges coming into action!

Term 2

Olive Tree children were given a fantastic opportunity this term when Konflux Theatre came in and completed a 'play-in-a-day'! The children showed amazing enthusiasm and commitment as they learnt lines, created actions and put together a fantastic performance - without even looking at the script! The performance centred around the theme: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and we learnt a lot of interesting facts as we were learning our performance.


The other classes and staff came to watch their performance at the end of the day and Olive Tree children had great reviews! Miss Read was very proud of everything they accomplished and can't wait to see more amazing acting in the future!



Term 3

This Term our DT unit has been ‘Mechanical Systems’ and we have made our own Olive Tree theme park! The children have designed and made their own fairground ride that spins using a pulley system. It was harder than it looked but the children faced the challenge head-on and created some fantastic rides! Take a look at some of our designs.
