Ms Ivy

Reach for the stars!

Welcome! We are 6 incredible.

Hello parents and welcome again. My name is Ivy and I am from the UK. It is my first year teaching abroad. As well as teaching your children, I am very much looking forward to learning from them. Please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is ivy.amoah@emsdoha.net.

Together, we will reach for the stars!


We can walk,

We can run,

We can fly with a rocket or a hot air balloon.

It doesn’t matter how we get there, but we know we are reaching for the stars… and beyond!


3 Way Conference

Dear Parents

The sign up schedule is now ready for you to book a time slot. You can find the booking page for our class here. The days we will have our conferences are Thursday, 22 March and Wednesday, 28 March.

The meeting will be three way conferences which means it will be the student, parents and teacher who sit together. The student will share his/her work with the parents and teachers, and explain what the activity was about.

As you know, positive feedback and praise is of the utmost importance for children to develop a positive self-esteem and motivation to learn. Thus I hope you will attend the conferences with the intention to acknowledge the good things your child has done and have them leave with a sense of pride in their work. See the attachment for ideas of positive words / phrases to say. You are more than welcome to schedule a later meeting with me where we can discuss concerns you have after the conference.

Thank you and kind regards,

Miss Ivy

We are Scientists

In 6.7, we have a thirst for knowledge.

We have been investigating materials that are conductors of electricity. We found that, some metals are better conductors of electricity than others.

Presentation

6.7 have really enjoyed reading Michael Morpugo's book Kensuke's Kingdom.

As part of our speaking and listening, the class chose different areas from the book, researched on their chosen topic and presented it to the class. They were all fabulous effective communicators.

What an 'Egg-cellent' Investigation

As part of our 'Forces in action' unit, we investigated how air resistance affect different surface areas. We made parachutes with different sizes (10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 centimeters squared). We dropped our parachutes from a height (with Adam the egg secured in it :)). We found that, the larger the surface area, the greater the effect of air resistance, therefor the safer it was for Adam the egg to land.

We had an 'egg-treamly' enjoyable time doing this 'egg-periment'.

Go Pink

We showed our support during Breast Cancer Awareness Day by wearing pink.

Science Investigation

As part of our unit on 'Forces in Motion', we tested how friction on different surfaces affect the distance a car travels.

6.7 concluded that 'the smoother the surface, the less friction there is therefore the further the car travelled'.

Please check the Year 6 page for the curriculum guide.

Week beginning 24th September

Kensuke's Kingdom

"Washed up on an island in the Pacific, Michael struggles to survive on his own. With no food and no water, he curls up to die. When he wakes, there is a plate beside him of fish, of fruit, and a bowl of fresh water. He is not alone…"

Michael Morpurgo's classic children's book Kensuke's Kingdom is a thrilling adventure story and 6.7 are itching to read more. Patience 6.7, have patience.

Remember that home learning tasks will be posted on google classroom.

Mangahigh Raz Plus

There really is no time for anyone in 6.7 to be bored. Happy learning!

First week of the new term

We've been busy bees.

As part of our goal setting, class 6.7 shared with each other the career they hope for in the future. We have doctors, artists, singers, lawyers, teachers, surgeons, footballers, scientists, gymnasts, engineers, builders and architects. Wow, the future world looks great!

Miss Ivy believes that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Our classroom has an atmosphere where students do not just meet their full potential, but always strive to be better.

To continue to be better, 6.7 know they must have a Growth Mindset.

We have created a Growth Mindset tree where the class wrote their own positive quotes. They truly are positively creative.

Positive Adjectives

To describe ourselves, we created acrostic poems using positive adjectives
