WELCOME TO YEAR 6!

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.
The Year Six Team.
We're all having a great time, our favourite activities so far are: 3G Swing, Jacob's ladder, Nightline and High Equilibrium. The food is great, particularly the breakfast. We hope for more sleep tonight as we were too excited to sleep on Monday night.
Here are some more photos. We were particularly proud of our homely shelters, it was very tempting to try them out over night! Leap of Faith was very challenging - we're looking forward to archery today. See you soon.
Our week in school - 1.7.19
Many of us will be at our Secondary Schools this week. Those that are staying in school will have a Shakespeare week. We will do various activities and study lots of stories. We will be preparing to share our learning with those who miss out.
WWI day - 21.5.19
We had a visitor who helped us understand lots more about life in WWI. We also created some artefacts from a variety of materials - even using the saws and glue guns!
"We enjoyed working together with others to make a plane. We were so impressed with our results!"
"It was amazing, we were taught what it was like in the trenches!"
"We performed drama by being soldiers while the sergeant ordered us about!"
"Some of us were pretending to snipe and others were trying to crawl away to safety."
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.
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.
