Today we are going to learn about Haiku poetry and practice our writing skills. 

What is a Haiku Poem?

 Haiku poetry is traditional in Japan. Each haiku only has 3 lines and the lines follow a pattern of syllables 5 – 7 – 5


Let’s count and clap the syllables together to the Haiku poem below:




Let’s have a go at writing a Haiku poem.

You can choose any theme you like for your poem.

You may want to plan by thinking of some key words. 

I have used a Summer theme for my Haiku poem.

I thought of some key words that remind me of Summer to help me when planning: 

Remember to count the syllables in each line to check the pattern matches the format.

5 – 7 – 5

My example: 

The ocean is cold

The sun blazing down on me

Let’s go for ice-cream. 


Have a go at creating your own Haiku poem.

We would love to see your ideas and poems!

Let’s get moving!

Kerry, Gaynor and Katie are focusing on exercise this week.

We have a positive mindset by being active and exploring the outdoors.

What is your favourite exercise or activity? 

How do you feel after you have exercised? 

It is really important to be as active as we possibly can. Have a look at the video below to see the reasons why people exercise and ideas on what we can do to stay active.

Last week we started to look at different places, focusing on their physical and human features. This week we are exploring different areas and their features. We have taken some photos for you explore and label. 

What features can you see?

Have you been out walking?

You may have even explored a new area. We would love to see your pictures on staying active and experiencing different places.


On your walk, take a photo with a geography feature that you can name.

Search on google maps to find different types of geography features.

Explore different countries and climates. What features do they have that are different to what we have?

Maths number!


Lets warm up before we begin our learning. Join in with the video below and let’s count  and move together to 100.

What number can you count to?

I have used stickers on my video below to count to 10, try it with me!

Can you carry on to 20? or even 100!

Challenges to try:

Number bonds to 10
Number bonds to 20 

Below is a video of how you can practice number bonds to 10 at home. I have used twigs for my objects to help, you can use any 10 objects around your house or outside. You may want to try it without objects.


Pairs to 100

Challenge yourself and see how many pairs you can do that make 100!

Examples in 10’s     

 10 + 90 = 100 

30 + 70 = 100

Examples to try in 5’s

5 + 95 = 100

55 + 45 = 100

We would love to see your learning. Send in photos or videos to larch@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk   and we can add them on to this post 🙂

History topic


Our topic in History this term is learning about the Bedouin Tribe. 


Who are the Bedouin Tribe?


The Bedouin Tribe call themselves the people of the tent, because they have no fixed home and travel around living in tents.



The Bedouin Tribe are people who live in desserts, such as North Africa, Egypt and Israel.

The pictures show what the tents look like and the materials they use to make the tent. 

What materials can you see inside the tent?

What materials can you see outside the tent?

Challenge: Can you make a Bedouin tent at home?

We would love to see your pictures! 




What is the lifestyle of the Bedouin Tribe?

Most Bedouins are animal herders who live in the desert during the rainy winter months and move back toward the cultivated land in the dry summer months.  They herd sheep, goats and camels. 


What can you find out about the Bedouin Tribe?


Listen and watch the tradition Bedouin music in the video below.

What instruments can you see?

What style is the music?     

Can you spot the mode of transport?   


Have fun researching!

Hola 6K

Who can guess what we will be learning today?

Here are a few clues.

Hola 6K.  ¿Qué tal?

Yes, that’s right! Español 

Can you remember the days of the week? greetings? or numbers?

We would love to hear what 6K can remember!

Today we will be looking at colours.

Roja    Naranja    Amarillo   Verde   Azul   Morado   Rosado 


I found some colours around my house so that we can learn them in Spanish.

Can you find some colours around your house and name them in Spanish?

Challenge: Can you research and find out other colours? 

Black, white and grey are some examples for the research.

Science learning

Class 6K have been classifying and sorting materials. They sorted the materials into the correct categories.

Research was carried out using ICT to find out what plastic pollution is and where it is affecting, 6K made fact files to show what they had found. 

Super learning, 6K!

The class all made a robot using recycled materials.

The robots give you a challenge to recycle as much as you possibly can!
