Year 6 Blog

Year 6 – 28/6/19

Another week, another blog and another opportunity to write and express myself and also mention the class when appropriate.

Year 6 have had an interesting week – they had the big talk about changes that happen to young adults. Most of the children were very mature during the discussion but a few struggled with a few of the words that were spoken aloud in front of 30 other boys. It was interesting to say the least. Even I blushed at parts but a massive thank you to Mrs Blanche for doing a job that most of us would literally die doing.

In literacy we are writing our final narrative unit and it is a last chance for the children to showcase all they know about what makes an interesting story. I shared the first chapter of my debut novel with them (this is true – I am not lying) they seemed to like it so I am taking pre-order copies now at the reasonable price of £8.99 and you can receive a signed copy for a limited time only.

Other than that, the children have been practicing the play. They know the lines they just need to work delivering it so it gets the maximum laughs (they should just listen to me – this isn’t my first rodeo).

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone as we have THREE winners and entrants on the CFHL (cue fireworks, fancy dressed elephants and the brass band we are back in business).

Congratulations to:

Sarah Egan – (worst is having to look like you know what you are doing and the best thing is ordering takeaway for tea)

Kathryn Boyes – (worst is having to cook and the best thing is sweets whenever you want)

Y6 parent aka Moriarty – (worst is bills, food shopping, responsibilities and withdrawl symptoms from the CF blog during the holidays and the best is being in control of the TV, bedtime and meal choice and the weekly fix from reading the CF blog)

Where do cows go on holiday? My guesses would be the following: Uddersfield, the moooon, Manor Farm (an Orwell reference), Mubai, Cowait, Cowatia, The Milky Way or Dairby. I am interested in the answer (some of these answers were volunteered by Mr Carr and Mr Griffiths).

The quiz this week is to find the poem I referenced in one line of the blog and give me the title of it in full. Bonus points for the poet.

Have a great weekend, Mr Furness

    Dear Mr. Furness,

    After reading your blog, There was no possibility of taking a walk that day, because I was Hunting High & Low for you poem. After Much ado, I felt like I was at a wake in Moo Orleans. But I’m not going to bang my drum. It is rushing towards the end of term but When I do count the clock that tells the time, to see our child spread their wings and fly to pastures moo, and we ready for the SATs results, What’s done is done and cannot be undone. I’m sure they will have done you and themselves proud. And this weak and idle theme, no more yielding but a dream. It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

    Jane Eyre; A-Ha; Shakespeare; J.K. Rowling

    Anyway, after my puzzle last week, I’m worried that the steaks were too high, so I’m off to Moonich, Angus then The Mooldives & Moorocco, but I’m worried I will end up in a Bergen. Okay, maybe I’m milking it …..

    Have a great lighter week.
