Year 6

Welcome to our Year 6 page! It's only been a few days but the children have settled back into routine so easily and are already working hard. We started our time back in school with the topic 'Feeling good and being me', giving the children the perfect opportunity to reflect on the last few months  - the difficulties we have all faced - and agree on how we should move forward as a class together. We created a 'Kindness Wall' and have recognised the need for that extra effort to make each other feel good about themselves.  The class are showing early signs of being a lovely group - Mrs Turner and myself are really looking forward to spending a full year with them!

Keeping ourselves fit and healthy...whatever the weather!

Autumn Term 2, here we come! First day back and it has been fantastic to see the whole class together, despite the difficulties surrounding us. We spent the day working hard, whilst discussing important issues around relationships and friendships. The children are fully aware of how to maintain positive relationships but realise that it sometimes is not always easy to do or that sometimes they get it wrong. Our role-play sessions this afternoon helped us to think about how to support each other and how to be a better friend. The dramatic scenes that followed showed the thought that went into their work. To finish off the day, Year 6 managed a couple of netball matches (rainy ones at times) and they had the chance to put their ideas on supporting each other and working together into practice. Super start to the half term!

Children in Need Day 2020

The day saw everyone dressed in a fantastic array of colours to match the colourful personalities in Year 6. There was still work to be done - the children busied themselves with honing their reasoning and problem solving skills in maths. In Science, they were experimenting to see what happens when light travels through different mediums. Zumba had to feature and Year 6 exerted themselves fully! Well done with all your hard work and your smiles today!


Learning across the curriculum

Our history topic on World War Two has seen much enthusiasm from the children. We have used this important time in our history across many different lessons in the school week. In drama, the children have performed mime, dance and have acted out roles in characters as evacuees. Art has seen some amazing work completed on The Blitz and has produced a super display in the classroom. History lessons have really captured the children's imagination. They are desperate to learn more and read more! This has been matched by the children's willingness to share personal belongings from family members from World War Two. Seeing items that were used and relevant during the war really helps with the children's understanding and is much appreciated by everyone in Year 6. Meanwhile our English lessons have focused on various texts: Friend or Foe, Rose Blanche and Letters from a Lighthouse. I can't wait to read their latest piece of writing. Keep up the good work!
