WEEK BEGINNING 25/5/20
As it is half term this week, we have another project for you to complete over the week.
You may not be getting out and about as much as normal so why not use this opportunity to stop, take stock and appreciate the small things. If you have access to a phone/camera why not create a photo diary. If not draw a picture a day to capture the highlights. Photograph things in your day that have brought you joy no matter how small. That way, if you’re having a moment of boredom or feeling blue, you can look at the pictures and reflect on the things that make you happy. Have a look at the document below for some tips for taking the best photos. We can't wait to see your photo diaries.
Creative Quarter Challenges
Keep an eye on the Creative Quarter page ( https://www.haydn.nottingham.sch.uk/creative-quarter/ ) on our website for weekly art challenges that you can all get involved in, inspiring websites and links.
This weeks challenge is to create your own transient art.
This week would have been SATs week. This week's work is below as well as a fun SATs test! We hope you are all well; you are all doing a brilliant job with your home learning and we are very proud of you. We hope to see you all soon.
The Year 6 Team
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you are well. It has been brilliant to speak with you or hear from you and the children this week and during the time we have been off school. We just want to say you are doing a brilliant job of supporting your child/ children and we can't tell you how much we appreciate that support. We understand how difficult it is adjusting at this unprecedented time and how hard it is if you are now trying to work as well, whether it be at home, or you are a key worker or have several children. Please ask the children to do what they can, particularly the maths and literacy and encourage lots of reading. As long as you are well, staying safe and doing some exercise that is the most important thing. If there is anything we can do to further support you, please do not hesitate to contact school and one of our year 6 team will endeavour to help.
Miss Harley, Miss Chambers, Mrs Evans, Ms Chadwick and Miss Wilkinson

We hope you all had a good Easter and ate lots of chocolate. We are missing you all lots and hope to be able to see you back in school soon.
See-saw is an online platform where I can set activities and children can respond. It is also a way to share what has been happening at home and they will be able to see what other children have been doing. I have set up a class page, to access it either go to https://app.seesaw.me/#/login or download the seesaw app on iOS or Android, I will be issuing you all with login details either by email or when we speak to you on the phone.
Under the activities tab there is a sample activity set up and you can also post pictures and notes about what you have been doing. Please go on and have a try, I can't wait to hear from you all!
Jay made Easter biscuits - they look delicious!
Samiyah cooked Lasagne - Miss Harley’s favourite!

Letters from the Lighthouse
Subscribe to the Haydn Primary School Youtube page to see Mrs Evans and Miss Harley reading the rest of Letters from the Lighthouse, as well as other staff from Haydn reading their favourite stories.
Weeks beginning 6th and 13th April
As it is the ‘Easter holidays’, we are going to give you a mini project and some craft activities to try instead of a structured daily routine. If however, you would like to do more over the next two weeks, please ensure that all of the previous work that has been set is completed and you can continue to access the websites suggested previously.
The final section of our WWII topic is that of rationing. In week one and two of your home learning pack, your task was to make something useful out of something you have at home. We would love to see what you have created – if you have any pictures please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or to your class teacher directly and we will see if we can get them on to the website.
Weekly Sporting Challenge
Make sure you visit the sportshall pages for details of the PE@Home Sporting Superstars Go for Gold Challenge. Each week we will be uploading a series of challenges to the Sportshall section of our website.
The Sporting Superstars Go For Gold Challenge will invite you to have a go at the weekly challenge, video yourself having a go then upload your effort onto twitter, tag your tweet with the weekly hashtag.

Home Learning Pack
Here is another resource to use for ideas if you want to supplement the class home learning packs.
WEEK BEGINNING 30th MARCH 2020
Hello 6H, I hope you are all well and managing to enjoy the sunshine and complete some of the tasks set for you. We have put together a timetable for week 2 which is attached along with some more ideas for keeping active.
As the school is to be closed for the foreseeable future, we have prepared a Learning Pack for you to use with your child at home. We would suggest that children thrive on some structure and routine in their day and we have created a daily plan for Literacy, Maths, Topic and Well-being that you can build into your day. Having some structure to their day, will really help your child and should help you too if you need to spend time working from home. It is vitally important that your children stay active and keep learning. We will upload new work weekly and all documents will be accessible from this page.
Sports Relief 2020- Haydn does Parkrun
On Monday 16th March, each year group ran their very own ‘Parkrun’. Each child was timed and the fastest boy and girl in each year group were rewarded with a medal. Well done Jesse and Alea!
Christmas Celebrations - 17th December 2019
Year 6 celebrated the end of the first term by visiting Broadway Cinema to watch ‘Wonder’ followed by a festive skating session at the Ice Arena.
Sustainability Week - 11th November 2019
During Sustainability Week, the children researched the impacts of our overuse of single use plastics. They then wrote persuasive letters to Mrs Mason suggesting ways in which Haydn could cut down. Our class assembly on 6th December followed the sustainability theme. We sang songs and had a ‘Question Time’ style debate with guest appearances from Greta Thunberg, Donald Trump and Boris Johnson.
