Good Morning Class 6,
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! 😊👍 Wow, can you believe it's the last week of term!
Valuing Your Achievements 🏆
This week’s learning project focuses on your successes throughout your time at Richardson Endowed. It will give you the opportunity to reflect on what you have enjoyed and achieved throughout your time in primary school.
Wheel of Achievements! 🎡
You have achieved so much at primary school and now it is time to reflect on what makes you proud. Your task today is to create a ‘Wheel of Achievements’ that displays your proudest moments. You can label each section with headings such as ‘Maths’, ‘English’, ‘P.E’, Music, ‘Friendships’, ‘Hobbies’ etc. Inside each segment you can either draw a picture or write a sentence to show what you are proud of. You can decorate it using bright colours so your wheel shines with pride!
If you haven't already had a look, there is also the online learning resource, ‘Be Ready to Be Remarkable.’ It is a resource to help prepare Year 6 pupils for secondary school, created in partnership by BeReady and Academies Enterprise Trust. It consists of three online content modules, designed to guide Year 6 pupils on their journey to secondary school.

Heart: What am I worried about?
In the bag: What do I need to remember?

Alicia was AMAZING. She saved anyone she saw that looked to be in trouble. She could produce golden, flying unicorns with her mind if she thought hard enough. Her absolute worst enemy was Evil Doctor Dog. He lived in a lair at the very heart of a labyrinth placed in the deepest, darkest jungle.
I’m here to tell you of the story in which Alicia saved the whole town from Evil Doctor Dog. But she wasn’t alone in this story. No, she had Astonishing Anya to help her!
The town was in trouble. Deep, deep trouble. Doctor Dog had stolen all the colour from every house! But nobody was scared, they all knew Alicia and Anya would save the day! Side by side, they had saved the town countless times. With Alicia creating golden unicorns and Anya talking to birds, they could do anything!
Side by side, they flew. Alicia on one of her unicorns and Anya on a very kind bird. Through the town, over the mountains and into the jungle. Carefully, they landed at the entrance to the labyrinth. Knowing they could call them back at any point, they left their rides there and set forth into the old, brick, moss-covered maze.
Left, Right, Right, Left, Left, Left. It seemed as though they would never make it to the centre. But, after tireless turning and decision-making they made it!
‘Ssshhh!’ Alicia whispered to Anya.
‘OK.’ She whispered back.
They listened through the brick.
‘Mwah ha ha ha ha!’ They heard through the mossy bricks.
‘Oh no! He’s planning something evil!’ Anya mouthed.
They couldn’t risk being heard. They mouthed a plan to each other and Anya, only Anya, leapt into the lair. The lair was a circular room just like at the centre of a maze. It was covered in moss and there were papers strewn everywhere. The writing was illegible. In the ‘corner’ of the room sat a dog bed, about the size of a single, human bed. Opposite this stood an old, desk-like vanity. In front of that, in a worn office chair, sat Doctor Dog himself.
‘Give me back that colour!’ She yelled.
‘Never!’ Came the evil-sounding response before the scream that quickly followed. Once he’d stood up, Alicia had summoned her unicorns and they were kicking Doctor Dog in the back repeatedly and made him fall over.
Over the other side of the lair, Anya was concentrating hard on summoning her birds. The sky went dark as thousands of blackbirds and robins flew in front of the sun.
‘AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!’ Guess who that was.
They plummeted at Doctor Dog and swarmed him. Peck peck. They went. Peck peck. Up went the swarm! They carried him away and nobody knows where Doctor Dog ended up.
The girls flew back to the town and were praised very much. The colour was restored and they all lived happily ever after.
Wow! Thank you for your work Mary and your fabulous story Amazing Alicia! What a lovely idea to write a story with the main character based on your buddy! 👏😊👍
Who Should I Be?
So, you may be wondering why the title is ‘Who Should I Be?’. Let me tell you a story. About a boy named James.
Chapter 1 intro. James was quite a lonely boy, he liked to read books by himself at playtime instead of playing football with Jeremy and Eden or catch with Oliver and Ivy. Sometimes he was a bit sad because whenever he would go up to someone to ask to play with them they would just call him a loser or a loner. So one night when he went to close his window he saw a shooting star and immediately thought ‘What should I wish for what should I wish for?’ but then he knew. “I wish I were someone else”.
Chapter 2 hit my arm. The next day when his mum woke him up she gave him a hug and said, "Breakfast will be ready in five minutes”. When she left the room James looked at himself in the mirror and said, “The wish didn’t work then”. Then his stomach felt really weird and he looked back at the mirror thinking ‘What was that?’, but what he should’ve been thinking was ‘Why do I look like my mum?’. He screamed “aaaaaaahhhhhh” and he sounded just like his mum. Oh no, he could hear his mum stomping up the stairs he didn’t know what to do so he panicked and said, “I wish I was me”. And just that moment his stomach went inside out again and his mum came in the room and said, “Are you okay honey?” he said back, “Yep, I just... hit my umm... arm on the table, yep hit my arm on the table. Ahh”. “Okay? Breakfast is ready” “I’ll be down in a minute.
Chapter 3 school. So when he got to school his classmate John threw him to the floor and said, “Get out of my way next time, punk!”. “Okay...sorry”. But then he went to the toilet and just sat in a cubicle. Someone said “ I know there’s someone in there and I’m telling a teacher. When the teacher came he said “come out its lesson time whoever it is is losing five minutes of breaktime later”. So he whispered I wish I was John and then walked out of the cubicle. The teacher said “John, you are using all of your lunch for taking too long!”. When he was walking back to the classroom he said "I wish I was me”, and snuck into his seat. At lunch he looked through the window and laughed at John. He did a sign back where he put his finger across his throat. James felt a tingle in his belly. He was scared, very scared.
Chapter 4 The ending. So, now he was back at home he immediately said to his mum “when is dinner ready” and ran upstairs. He thought to himself ‘actually, I do want to be me, I do want to be James Summers’. ‘I might use it once or twice or maybe thirty odd times but I want to be me. And I will only use it for good not bad or evil’.
Wow! Thanks Tom W, another fabulous story, well done! 👏😊👍
