Y6 Leavers 2020

Calling all Y6s!


We are inviting Y6 pupils from class 6W and 6S to come back to school on Wednesday 15th July so collect any belongings, say goodbye to their teachers and hopefully (if they have arrived!) pick up their leavers books :)


Year 6 pupils from 6W and 6S only will be able to access school grounds via the middle playground gates at 2pm; they will be able to go to tables outside of their classrooms, collect belongings and leavers books, say goodbye to staff and then leave via the field gate. 


Parents may escort children to school but will unfortunately not be allowed on premises at this time. 


If your child is going to attend may they please wear a white t shirt which you do not mind being decorated by staff :) 


We look forward to seeing pupils and saying goodbye in a socially distanced, fun way! :)

Good morning 6S. I hope you are all okay and you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday. It is supposed to be even hotter today so if you do get out of the house, make sure you wear suncream! 


In maths today, I would like you to complete the units of measure sheets. The first 3 pages are all the questions and pages 4,5,6 are the answer for you to check - no cheating though.


In Literacy, this morning it has been announced (thank you Good Morning Britain) that in September schools will welcome back all children. This is fantastic news. Therefore, I would like you to create a newspaper report making this announcement. You will need to have a look on the internet for the information, any rules that are going to be put in place to keep everybody safe, tell the reader who made the decision and get some quotes from people on how they feel about the decision (good and bad, balance your article).


I have also put a checklist of things you need to include and a powerpoint reminding you how to write a newspaper articles. 


Enjoy the weather 


Miss Swapp

Good morning. The weather is beautiful today so you will have a bit of home learning but then you can go and enjoy the sun - no sitting in on computer games. They are for rainy days.


Today's math is dividing fractions - remember the rule. Same, change and flip.

You have also got dividing fractions by whole numbers. Remember, turn the whole number into a fraction.


In Literacy, you have been given a picture of a spooky forest. I would like you to create a settings description, ensuring it is scary and you hold suspense throughout. Remember your descriptive features - adjectives, adverbs, similes, metaphors, personification and onomatopoeia.


I look forward to seeing all your hard work.


Have a nice day!

Can you brainstorm what you think about him using adventurous descriptive language.
Can you describe him in detail - if you put 'beard' describe further - what is the beard like?

Once you have built up a range of vocab can you turn it into a paragraph describing your character, focusing on both appearance and personality.

Thank you so much to those of you who have emailed me your lockdown poems, they have been lovely to read and at the same time overwhelming, bringing tears to my eyes. I know this is a very difficult and unusual time for us all but we are all in this together. I would like to share two poems with you that I think you will all enjoy. 


New Moston 

From Nursery to Year 6,

Every year was special,

Lots of memories made,

Will miss the times we shared, 

Moments we will laugh at,

Outside playing footy was fun, 

Spag, maths and P.E are the best,

Trying to spell was a test,

Off too secondary school I go,

New Moston I'm sad to go! 


By Alfie 



Year 6 Leaves Poem


What a crazy year, year 6 has been,

All the things we have learned and loved,

We had experiences and plans we wanted to do,

But all of that couldn't come true,


Learning about things like spelling and maths,

Then we would complete all the tasks,

Yet sometimes life comes to a struggle,

And we all have to stay in our own little bubble.


Schools and shops have been shut down,

Now it's hard to walk around,

We can only see people on our phone,

But just know you aren't alone.


We had to do what was right,

Because there is still a light,

But all we can do now is hope,

But ignoring the safety rules is a big nope.


This history will be told,

With the power it holds,

A story to tell in the future,

Which was a huge adventure.


We are just children but had to leave our friends,

To social distance and to put this to an end,

We are all heroes in this pandemic,

Fighting and battling this horrible epidemic.


Even though we went our own ways,

We still have memories of our funny school days,

All the fun and laughter to school trips far away,

And to be allowed now we'd just have to pray.


We had closes assemblies that were 20 minutes long,

Then going back to class with our brains working strong,

Running out to play was the best part for us,

And if I could choose for it to be longer, trust me I would.


As I think of my past,

It'll remind me of how long we would last,

But now it's time to say goodbye,

For when we come back and say hi!


By Chloe

I hope you are all still ok. 

Your daily task for Literacy is to write your own lockdown poem!! You can make it funny, sad, happy, a bit of everything - it is entirely up to you.  I have attached an example for you to read so you can get an idea if what one might look like.  Good luck.

Dear Parents/Carers,

As we obviously can't have our class photos this year Mrs Hindle is putting together a class photo for each class as a lasting memory of this time!

If you would like to have your child added to their class photo I need you to send a head shot (from the shoulders up) of your child to ...
(By doing this you are giving your consent to share your child's photo with other parents.)

I would need these no later than FRIDAY 19TH JUNE!

There is no uniform to the image you send just a clear smiling head shot of your cherubs! (Please no snapchat style filters!)

Thank you



Hi everyone!


Sorry about the delay, but we now have our class email address! 

I can't wait to hear from you and for you to share your learning with me.

Hello 6S!


I hope you are all okay! It's been a while since I spoke to most of you on the phone. It was lovely to speak to you and find out a little bit about what you have all been doing. I will be calling again on Thursday 11th and Monday 15th to see how you have been getting on and to find out what you have been up to. 


School feels very strange without you smiling faces but hopefully you are all managing to fill your time and not getting too bored!

Although the weather seems to be changing, I hope you have still been keeping busy! I have been taking Monty on lots of walks and have started painting my hallway.


Missing you all. 


Miss Swapp smiley



Hello 6S!


Hope you are all safe and well. I am missing you all terribly (even the constant chatting and the sound of the electric sharpener going off!) I am sure you are missing school as well as me smiley but there is plenty of home learning to be getting on with and enjoy spending time with your family. 


I have been busy in the garden and I have done lots of cleaning- my house has never been so clean and tidy! I have also been on lots of walks with Monty, who is keeping me busy with digging up my plants that I have just planted. no


I look forward to seeing you all very soon! In the meantime, keep doing your home learning and remember that there are lots more activities to be busy with on the internet- Joe Wick PE sessions, online dance routines (I have had a go myself!), story telling with David Walliams and virtual tours of the zoo. 


Enjoy your time off, make lots of new memories with your family and most of all stay safe and keep smiling.

Christmas at New Moston!

This week we have been learning about Christingle which means 'Christ's Light' and it is a symbol of the Christian faith.  We created our own Christingles too whilst learning about what each part symbolizes.  We learnt that the candle represents Jesus who they believe is the light of the world.  The red ribbon goes all around the world, representing the blood of Jesus who died for his beliefs. 6S really enjoyed learning about Christingle and making their own! 

Into University

Watch out....environment alert!!
