Up in Year 6, we have been focusing on the book, Wisp by Zana Fraillon and Grahame Baker-Smith. During last week, we paid particular attention to some of the settings represented by the beautiful illustrations in the book.
Below are some extracts from pieces of work from children in 6 Oak based on this picture.
Alisha: As the sun drowned and the moon rose, darkness descended. Roaring clouds fighting against the wind, a wind so powerful that would make you shiver, whilst the emerald sea shook. My life long comrade struggled to cope with the constant barrages.
Theo: The sun set and the clouds bloated with darkness. A shotgun of water shook the boat terribly until it settled, but then out of nowhere, a fierce wave rose above my head catapulting me high above my trusty boat.
Rain poured down, suddenly within a flash water started to invade my boat, drenching it! Thunder roared and lightning struck, ruling the ferocious seas making whoever sailed it bow to its mercy.
Bawan: The deep blue sea roars with the evening wind, as the moon was glowing in the night sky. Darkness descended on the furious sea while the clouds expanded with a type of charcoal grey colour. It was a constant battle between the sky and sea.
The splash of waves overpowered me at times as my lifelong companion of the ocean struggled to cope with the un-predictableness of the merciless sea.
Diya K: As darkness entered upon the raging sea, my life was in danger! The waves bellowed at me as I trembled in fear. I looked up at the sky and I realised I was no longer in control. The moon was glowing in the night sky as the waves kept pulling me down. I was facing a losing battle and the mercy of turning weather.
Diya P: The tranquil ocean bloated in fury sending crashing waves in collision. The ghostly blackened clouds lingered above the perplexing sea. Everything looked like a horror story. There was no hope left – my energy was diminished and lost in the sea. My lifelong comrade of the sea struggled to keep up in the non-stop battle with the sea and wind.
Zak: Moonlight lit up the tiny boat persevering against the raging sea, angry clouds were filled with thunder, occasionally sneaking out only to crack and fizzle away. The sea was acting as though it was shouting to the sky in mercy, pleading with it to stop.
Fear overwhelmed me, I realised escape was impossible, all hope left me till all I was, was a shell of terror drenched in sadness.
It’s with a heavy heart that I thought I would post this message today. As we draw to a close this academic year, I want you all to know how special you have made this year, I know it has interrupted and spoiled a lot of events which we were all looking forward too and I’m so gutted for you but remember no matter what you should all be proud of your achievements and what you have accomplished this year both in school and at home. This is not how your final year should go and I wish I could get you all back in to school too say a proper goodbye but this may be my only other option. Coming to Parkside last September you have made me feel welcome from the very first day, treated me with respect, tried hard in everything I asked of even when on PGL or at sporting events – I could not have asked for more. And something not so obvious… everyday, you could put a smile on my face, you could cheer me up even if I was having an ‘off’ morning/afternoon because we all have them and it takes a special class, a special group of people to be able to make someone enjoy each and everyday of work.
I’m hoping this will not be the only way I get to say good luck to you… but if it is, I want you all to know you have made me very proud and there is no way I’ll ever forget my first class at Parkside, you have made me fall back in love with teaching again.
Just promise me … come September you will go to your secondary school with lots of energy and desire to do well – embrace the challenges and reach for the stars.
Take care 6 Oak and remember – stay fired up and be ready to go and in the words of Kid president – you are all awesome! So be the heroes you are meant to be.
Wow… it was such a hot week but thoroughly enjoyable nonetheless. Thank you for all your home learning tasks this week, I have tried to add a snapshot of your work below. As for the bubble in class, I have been very impressed with your efforts and enthusiasm, not just this week but ever since you have all returned to school in what has been difficult circumstances. So a massive well done to everyone!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Good Morning everyone,
Sorry for the delay in getting this up, it was another very busy week with lots of creativity going on both at home and at Parkside. I loved seeing all the diorama’s and Jungle collages, as well as keeping track of what you were doing in Maths and Literacy, I know by the end of the week there was some challenging conversions to do linked to Miles and Kilometres, so fantastic effort everyone.
Good afternoon everyone, I don’t know about you but the week seems to have flown by. I am now joined in class by Amelia, Romeo, Razvan, Reece, Esther, Sebi, Harry and Lina. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable week, so thank you.
I have continued to receive lots of great work from home and now in the classroom which I have tried to share with you below. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and we can start again on Monday.
