Year 6

WELCOME TO YEAR 6!

 

The teachers in Year Six are:

Miss Crofton (6C), Miss Barnett (6B) and Miss Barry (6SB).

 

The support staff are:

Mrs Sharp, Mrs Hudson, Mrs Whitwood, 

Mrs Roskilly, Mrs Perry, Mrs Wiseman and Mrs Ross

 

 In Year Six we will usually set homework every Monday and expect it handed in by Friday. We know that reading is important to support your child's imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Therefore, reading for up to 15 minutes each evening for up to 5 evenings per week will be expected as part of your child's weekly homework. Children can choose a school reading book, a library book, or a book from home. Please ensure  that your child reads independently and records their opinions about the book. It is also important that children get the opportunity to discuss their reading with an adult regularly, this will aid their reading comprehension skills. Of course it will still benefit Year Six children to read aloud to an adult at home. 

Many thanks,

The Year Six Team.

Our week in school - 1.4.19

This week our R.E work will include learning about the events of Easter Week from a disciple's perspective.  In addition we will continue our book - stay where you are and leave, explore more about WWI and we will continue basketball skills in P.E.

6SB Liturgy - St Patrick's Day

15.3.19

Today 6SB had their class liturgy, which was on St Patrick's Day.
The children did a fantastic job, and they enjoyed showing Year 5 and the rest of Year 6 what they had learnt about him. 

Thank you to the children of 6SB for all their hard work, thank you to the parents for the effort put in to help the children learn their lines and with the t-shirts, and thank you to the parents who were able to attend our liturgy; the children were excited to perform for you.

In year six we moved classes as we chose the book we would like to work with: Wonder, Journey or Zig Zag. We created our own Zig Zag books about our choice of book, pictures of our safe place inspired by Journey, or created a piece of artwork, based on the quote 'Why blend in when you were born to stand out?' from the book, Wonder. We enjoyed working out who everybody came dressed as! We have included some photos of some of their wonderful creations!

Science- Electricity

In Class 6B, we have been investigating electricity by 'getting to grips' with circuits. At first, we found it hard to troubleshoot and gave up when our circuits didn't work. But, by the end of the lesson, we were able to work collaboratively to work out the reason the electrons were not flowing around our circuit.
Maths Day 2019 in year 6. Lots of fun with data handling, shape and code breaking. We had to persevere to complete some activities as they were so challenging. This was very good for us as we need to learn that things take time to solve. We enjoyed completing all the different activities and working with different children.

We have been studying evolution and adaptation as part of our Science work. We have learnt about how animals are adapted to the environments that they live in. Some animals have evolved over time to maintain their existence. Can you identify the parts of the animals that we've created?

We have also used plasticine to create a new species of animal that has adapted to its environment.
