Sunflower update

Good afternoon Year 6, I hope you are all well. 

Today is the day to plant your sunflower seeds, if you wish to take part.

Make sure you choose a suitable spot for them to germinate/grow and keep them well watered.

Remember to send your teacher weekly updates of your sunflowers - pictures and measurements. 

Happy growing!

Have a great weekend and Easter break, 

Miss Noble

Owls Class Book - The Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho Yen - Chapter 43

The sound quality wasn't ideal on the previous chapter, so this is recorded as an Audio File - the quality should be substantially better. Let me know if you're still listening and enjoying the book! I'm really missing reading to you all!

26/03/20 - Daily Hello - Hawks

Good morning Hawks! 

I hope you are all okay and have been keeping yourselves busy. 

Unfortunately, my internet is down at the moment so I am unable to film my usual daily hello. Once the internet is back up and running, I will continue with the daily hello videos. I've had an email from Natalia today with a few jokes:

What's faster, cold or hot? 

Hot because you can catch a cold. 

 

What do you catch a rich elf?

Welfy.

 

Why did the golfer buy two pairs of trousers?

Because he got a hole in one!

 

Thank you for those Natalia.

I've got a long list of things to share with you, so I will make sure I share them in the next daily hello. 

Have a great day and I will speak to you all soon, 

Miss Noble. 

26/03/20 - Hello Eagles - Jokes

Apologies to Ethan and Ellie who sent in jokes. There was so much to talk about today! Here they are:

Ethan's joke

A man was fired from his banking job because he pushed over an old lady. When asked why he did it, he replied, 'I was checking her balance.'

 

Ellie sent in two jokes. 

What vegetables need a plumber? A leek!

 

Knock, Knock

Who's there?

Peas.

Peas who?

Peas let me come in. 

 

Remember if you have a joke please send me an email. Thanks all.

PE Challenge in Partnership with the Total 14 Football Academy!

 

Craig from Total 14 has today set an online challenge to his Academy players  which includes White Rock children as he comes in to provide us with our football coaching.

 

There are 20 football teams that Craig has described only by using emojis. He has not given us the answers yet - so between us do you reckon that we can crack the 20 and send them to Craig before anybody else can?

 

To help you out, I reckon 14 is New York Red Bulls...

 

Chat to family, FaceTime your friends and see how many you can get.

Email me your ideas ileaman@white-rock-primary.torbay.sch.uk.

 

Feel free to design any others and send them to me and I'll see if I can guess them!

 

Good Luck from Mr Leaman!

25/03/20 - Remote Sunflower Challenge!

Year 6 have been inspired by a project that is going to begin in Year 3 this Friday... It's the Sunflower Challenge!

Sunflowers, with their bright petals and strong stems, are well known for being 'happy' flowers. We would like to challenge all Year 6 children to plant a sunflower seed on Friday 27th March and watch it grow.

 

We will be sharing photos and measurements every Friday so think carefully about where you plant your seed and what it needs to grow. Make sure to email your teacher with your photos and measurements so we can watch our sunflowers grow together.

 

Happy growing!
