Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Happy New Year! I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

This term, our whole school Spring topic is "Travellers and Explorers" and we have lots of exciting things planned.

We will be doing PE every Friday during Term 2a then every Thursday during Term 2b so please come to school wearing your school PE kit (red t shirt, red jumper, black or navy blue tracksuit bottoms/leggings and trainers).

Homework will be sent home every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Reading books must be returned every day as we will need them in class.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

In history, we found out about Ancient Egyptian beliefs. We researched their Gods and found out that they had over 2000 Gods, each with a different role!

We created Bully-Proof Vests, adding features that could be used to help people if they experience bullying behaviour.

During Anti-Bullying week, we evaluated our Children's Anti Bullying Policy and made sure that it was still appropriate for our school.

In music, we've started our next block of ukulele lessons. We can already play lots of chords!

In history, we explored sources of evidence to find out about the Ancient Egyptians

We applied our mapwork skills to create our own maps of our school grounds

We took part in the SSP Live PE lesson with Leanne - it was great fun!

We enjoyed our willow weaving workshop. We worked hard and made lots of leaves for our school tree.

Tesco very kindly donated some items for our MacMillan Coffee Afternoon so we popped round to collect them. We linked this to our geography topic and carried out a field study while we were out.

We held our School Council Elections. Well done to all four candidates - your speeches were excellent and the final result was very close!

In Computing, we learned about collaborative tasks. First we used paper to create a shared piece of artwork then we created a shared online document on the Chromebooks and shared artwork on the iPads. It wasn't as easy as we thought!

We tested our word class knowledge in English and held a competition to see who could create the most imaginative (and grammatically accurate) sentence

We learned more about living in a democracy in PSHE and we thought about the characteristics we are looking for in our new class councillors.

In geography, we looked at different maps of our local area. We couldn't believe how many features we found!

In Science, we explored the role of the circulatory system. We created blood, using household items to represent each component.

We're using sketching pencils to create different shading effects in art this term

We're working with Mrs Hughes from DMS again this year. First, we're exploring percussion instruments and trying to keep a steady beat.

In Computing, we found out how data is transferred over the internet. Coincidentally, we had problems using TTRS this morning and now we know why this happened!

This year, we voted Sophie Anderson as our Y6 class author
