Mo Farah – Mrs Turner
Welcome to Mo Farah Class.
Autumn Term 2
As part of our work on the Victorian Engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, we walked to the bridge he designed that our school is named after: Somerset Bridge. It was a lovely and sunny walk and we drew a sketch of the bridge when we got there. When we got back to class, we drew a sketch-map of our route and produced a neat copy of our sketch.
Mo Farah- exciting news!
After sending an email to Mo Farah over half term, we were amazed and delighted to get a reply! Here is what he sent us:
Black History Month.
This year we looked into the problem of racism and what we can do to address this issue. Here is some of our work that we produced:
Anti-bullying Week 15th-19th November: One Kind Word.
On Monday 15th November, we wore odd-socks to celebrate the fact that everyone is unique. This week we have been discussing the theme of "One Kind Word" and how this helps to spread positivity and kindness.
Trip to Fyne Court.
On Tuesday 16th November, we went to Fyne Court to gather ideas for our portal story that we will be writing in English lessons soon. It was a beautiful day for a walk in the woods, seeing all the autumn colours.
Autumn Term 1.
We have all made a great start to Year 6 and have had a busy first few weeks.
On the 24th September, the ambassador interviews were held by Ms Harrington and Mr Stevens. They had an incredibly hard job to choose only 8 as everyone was brilliant in their interview. From our class, Rafe, Jack and Jacob were successful.
On the 14th October we held our school council elections and Ianis and Jamie were elected to represent our class. Also, Faith and George have been elected as our Eco-reps.
We are now named "Mo Farah" class as each class is named after a sporting icon this year. We chose Mo Farah, because of all his sporting achievements, such as winning the "double-double". This means that he won 2 gold medals in the 2012 Olympic games in London in the 5,000m and 10,000m athletic races. He then repeated this major achievement by winning these races again in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He is also inspirational as he faced many challenges growing up, such as coming to the UK at the age of 8 to escape conflict in Somalia. He also is an ambassador for the charity: "Save the Children".
Year 6 Residential 27th-29th September.
We had a great time at Kilve Court on our residential- even though it rained so much on the second day! Activities included: raft building, grass sledging, Jacob's ladder, team games, the maze and a walk on top of the Quantocks.
