Hello Y6,

I hope that you all enjoyed a special weekend, even though we couldn't have our normal May day celebrations.

The new learning activities are up on the Class 4 Home Learning page and there is a new challenge on the STEM blog - don't be afraid to say 'hi' on the blogs, or ask a question/make a suggestion - it is a good idea to stay in touch with each other, especially as we prepare to come back to school within the next month.

Have a great day.

Mr H.

A May day message to all of Year 6

ianheard on: The Flore Year 6 Blog!

Hello Y6. I know that today many of you will be missing the opportunity to share May day with your classmates and their families. Whatever you do today, I hope that you can do something special to remember this important Flore tradition. Above there is a video message from me... and here is a poem I have written to reflect on possibly the most unusual May day in its entire 124 (and counting!) year history:

A 124th May day poem

The maypole stands tall

Its ribbons trail

Flitting gently in the breeze


It waits patiently for the King and Queen

The Maids and Knights to lead the dance

Yet the street stays empty


No flowers, no stage

No expectant crowd

No laughing children


But the maypole stands tall

A monument to hope and joy

Crowned with nature’s beauty


For it knows deep down,

though not today

… that the dance goes on


The music, it will play again

Boys and girls will dance again

The people will cheer again


Flowers will bloom again

Flore May day will live again

…for the dance goes on


            _          _          _


I will enjoy looking at some of the old photos on the gallery – you all looked so cute when you were little!

I admire Casper's valiant efforts at reproducing the traditional May day in isolation!





Have a great day

Mr H.

Casper's cute cat



...that gives me an idea for an alliterative list poem!

Perfect Pets

Annika's articulate aardvark

Bobby's bodacious bulldog

Casper's cute cat

Dylan's dynamic dugong

...maybe you could help me to finish it?

Ideas in the comments section please - or email me your poems using class4@floreceprimary.co.uk

Have a good day

Another Wacky Wednesday!

"Good morning everyone"  (I am pretending I'm taking assembly!)

Start your day by singing a song that makes you feel good or watch something that puts a smile on your face.

Have a look at this peculiar picture - how many things can you spot that are not quite right? Answers in the comments section, please!

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning Year 6!

A sunny start to Tuesday. I hope that you are all safe and well. It has been lovely to receive messages from lots of you who have enjoyed the video message from the staff... but it also reminds us of some of the things we are missing out on at the moment (yes, even SATs!).

The important thing is to stay positive, look forward to the fact that Year 6 will be among the first pupils back at school and to stay in touch with friends (and school!) - it really would be great if a few more of you could try using the blog or just share a photograph to say 'hi' to your classmates.

Remember to use the class email if you have any questions, problems or suggestions about your home learning.

Today I am going to start designing a marble run using toilet roll tubes - I'll share it when it is finished!

PS Paige says 'hi' - she's missing you all loads (Sorry, Paige - for some reason your comment wouldn't post!)
