Welcome to the Year 6 blog. Find out what our classes have been up to lately!

All about biographies (and smarties!)

User Rating:  / 0

We’ve been looking at biographical and autobiographical writing this week culminating in some fabulous writing on Friday. It’s been very interesting to read the autobiographies of our Year 6 children; we’ve found out some interesting facts about them.

During maths work, we have been collecting, presenting and interpreting a data in a range of ways. We used tubes of Smarties and investigated different ways we could show the colour data. We had some excellent graphs, tally charts as well as representations of ratio and proportion as fraction and decimals. Well done Year 6!

The staff are very excited for Howtown next week, not long now! Have a restful weekend ready for an action packed week.

Welcome to Year 6!

We are so thrilled to see all of you back and raring to go! What a fantastic first week we have had studying Japan. The children have become Origami masters making frogs and whales out of coloured paper. In addition, we have been studying the work of Katsushika Hokusai whose print ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ has inspired some superb artwork across a range of media.

To help learn more about the country, we have been finding geographical facts about Japan using atlases and even tasting some Japanese delicacies including sushi and green tea! We were really impressed by the excellent work produced this week and how enthusiastic each class member was. Well done Year 6.

Annie!

We are hard at work rehearsing for Annie and things are going well.  Miss Harper has been great and has been helping us to learn our lines, songs and dances.  If you have not learnt all of your lines yet get practicing because we will be going script free very soon.  You can also find many of the songs (with lyrics to sing along to) by following the link below:

Keeping safe at Safeside

Last Friday year 6 went to Safeside on a safety awareness trip.

Whilst there we learnt all about how to keep ourselves safe and dangers around us.  The guides were hugely impressed by the safety knowledge of all of the children and commented on how unusual it is to meet children who are so well informed!  Well done year 6 and make sure that you apply all of your safety knowledge to keep yourselves safe.

Health Week and My Money Week

Following the half term holiday, we have come back to school and found ourselves in the middle of two special themed weeks.  Last week was health week and we took part in all sorts of fun activities including: mixing fruit cocktails; daily wake up, shake up sessions, tennis coaching, bikeability and lots more ...  It was a great week and enjoyed by all!

Be active

This week is My Money Week and we are taking part in all sorts of money themed activities including sketching, writing and maths.  We will also be pitching to the dragons in Dragon's Den and making our business enterprise products.

Finally, to finish our week off, we will be visiting SafeSide on Friday.  Don't forget your packed lunch!

The sun is starting to shine and yet we are all still hard at work preparing for our SATs.  The children are responding really well to all of the revision and test practice we are putting in, with many of them attending booster sessions during the school day and even after school.  Thank you for your hard work and please keep it up for the next few weeks.  Last week we suggested some Maths websites to log onto at home, so this week here are some Literacy ideas:
