Our last month together has been a fun one! We have been continuing our play practice getting ready for our big performance on Thursday 20th July.
This month we also got our SATs results back and we could not be prouder! Year 6 put in a huge amount of effort this year and it has really paid off!
We have also been to Go Ape this month for our end of year trip and it was brilliant! Have a look at our gallery page for more photos.
We are getting closer to the end of Year 6 and we have packed in lots! This month we continued focussing on our writing. I have been extremely impressed by how well Year 6 have listened to feedback and now their writing is so much better!
We have also started work on our play, which is very exciting. We had auditions and allocated parts. We have been busy learning our lines and all of the fun songs. Watch this space!
This month we have really focussed on developing our writing. We have been writing lots of stories and a range of other texts. We enjoyed reading the story 'The Giant's Necklace' by Michael Morpurgo and producing some writing based on this text.
In maths, we have covered many topics such as angles, mental calculations and fractions/decimals/percentages.
In science, we have been learning all about the circulatory system. Can you remember all of the parts of the heart?
April has been such an exciting month! We began our new topic of Ancient Greece. We kicked off this topic by holding our own Greek Day. During Greek Day, we started off by performing Greek myths in the form of plays. We have some very good actors and actresses in Year 6! Then we completed a maths trail outside and had to hunt for Greek maths clues that were hidden around the playground. In the afternoon, we tasted Greek foods including: feta cheese, tzatziki, olives and Greek salad. Finally, we finished off our fun-filled day by holding our own Olympic Games. Congratulations to 'Sparta' who won! Look out for more pictures on our gallery page.
We have had a busy March! In science, we have completed two experiments investigating microorganisms. We stored bread in different conditions to see what helped mould grow. We also made our own bread to see how different conditions affected yeast. We particularly enjoyed the taste testing. Have a look on our gallery page for more photos!
We have also been hard at work in our booster classes with Miss Conroy, Mrs Mclean, Mrs Harman, Mrs Bailey and Mrs Abbott. All of the adults have been impressed with the attitude of the children.
This half term we have been continuing our topic of 'The Vikings are Coming!'. We have learnt all about Anglo Saxon kings, raiding, Danegeld and even made our own Viking longboats!
This month I feel we have worked particularly hard in maths. We have tackled some really tricky work and Year 6's confidence and ability in maths is constantly increasing. Keep up the brilliant work!
In English, we explored legends. We began by looking at the legend of Robin Hood and finished by retelling the legend of 'The Sword in the Stone'.
In cooking lessons, we learnt all about seasonal fruits and vegetables. We concluded our work by cooking our own seasonal dish- a chicken hot pot! We used many seasonal vegetables and improved our cooking techniques (including peeling, chopping and seasoning). It was delicious and got a definite thumbs up from Year 6.
We had such a brilliant time at Dol-y-Moch! I could not be prouder of the children's behaviour and attitude throughout the week. They worked so well as a team and showed a huge amount of bravery and resilience. We completed so many different activities including: climbing the mountain and mine, rock scrambling, kayaking, the Dol-y-Moch dive, orienteering, beach art, the labyrinth and the night line. Well done Year 6- you were brilliant! Thank you to Mrs Bailey, Mrs Mclean and Mrs Goddard who also came on our trip. They did a brilliant job of looking after everyone. Have a look at our gallery page for more pictures.
This month we finished our WW2 topic and celebrated all of the children's hard work by holding a WW2 street party. We invited all family members to come and see the great work they had produced, try some of the food we cooked and listen to our WW2 songs.
Year 6 also did a brilliant job of leading the Christingle service.
We have been working hard this November! We have been working extremely hard on our maths and we every day we are getting a bit quicker at arithmetic! Keep on practising those times tables. We have covered a wide range of areas including place value, fractions/decimals/percentages, time and algebra.
We also recognised 'Anti-bulling week' this month. Some of our amazing Year 6s led the assembly and made a presentation all by themselves- great work!
In English, we wrote some very emotional pieces on 'The Piano'. Click the picture below to watch the beautiful video. Have a look on the Year 6 gallery page for a few examples of Year 6's excellent writing.
October has been a busy month! We are becoming great mathematicians and have been solving some really tricky maths problems. We worked hard on our fractions, decimals and percentages work.
All of Year 6 have really impressed us with their attitude to learning and behaviour this half term- keep up the good work!
We had a brilliant start to Year 6 and got stuck into learning straight away! On Monday 26th September, we went on a trip to Coventry Cathedral. We had a tour of the old ruins and the new cathedral. We went on a tour of the Blitz museum and found out much more about life in 1940. We also had a history and art workshop in the afternoon.
