Year 6 Blog - Spring Term 2023

We are really pleased to welcome Year 6 back after the winter break. 

The children are raring to go and there is lots to be excited about. 

This week we have begun our new Geography topic of mountains and DT topic of foods from other cultures. In PE and Games this half term children will be studying basketball and cricket, while in Science we continue to learn about living things and their habitats by examining microorganisms under microscopes and setting up investigations about how bread moulds in different conditions. 

In Maths, children have started to learn how to convert measure and will soon be moving on to the new concept of ratio. In English, children have read the story of Rosie Revere Engineer and next week will design their own inventions. 

We look forward to seeing everything our pupils achieve this half term. 

The Year 6 Team. 

Year 6 Blog - Summer term 2023

Welcome to the summer term!

As one would imagine, in Year 6 we have been working hard to prepare for our SATS exams in May! The children have worked exceptionally hard to revise all of the necessary topics to help with their learning.

In our foundation lessons, Year 6 have studied the efficiency of Caliph AL Masur's city of Baghdad from 900CE and in particularly how it has influenced modern life. Our wonderfully creative Art lessons have introduced the children to using marbling paint in all sorts of innovative ways. In PE, we have 'tackled' learning about Tag Rugby and will soon be enjoying the hysteria of Dodgeball!

Year 6 have really hit the ground running since returning for the Autumn Term. Our maths lessons have been using a range of resources to help understand Place Value, such as reading numbers, rounding, negative numbers and solving problems.

In English, we have been working tremendously hard to improve our grammar, and are now using those skills towards our first unit, Rose Blanche. This coincides nicely with our History topic of WW2 and our DT topic of shelters where we can explore the events of 1939 to 1945 in more detail.

In Science, the children have been learning about how electricity works and have studied how an electrical circuit is presented.

Img 2993Year 6 had a lovely day learning about what life was like in Britain during WW2. The day was led by an expert in WW2 history and the children took part in lots of role play scenarios, allowing them to experience first-hand what it would have been like. The children were able to use many artefacts from the WW2 period, learn about money during the period and took part in many more fantastic activities. A brilliant and memorable day that we feel sure they will remember for a long time. Thank you to all the adult helpers who helped make the day so special. 

Y6 Blog - Spring term 2024

!!Welcome to our Spring blog!!

We have hit the ground running in Year 6 since returning to school after the Christmas break! Of course, the children have worked hard in preparation for this year's SATS (in May), working to ensure they are meeting the required standard across all Reading, Writing, SPaG and Maths. 

With our foundation topics - the children have enjoyed learning about our Science topic: Animals, including Humans (specifically the circulatory system); our DT topic: Food On The Go and our brand new History topic: The Golden Age of Islam. Across all lessons, children have engaged in exciting activities where they have worked hard to take their learning further. We enjoyed a morning of practising DT cooking skills, where the children peeled, grated, chopped and sliced an array of vegetables to use as a filling for our spring rolls. In our new-styled History lessons, pupils work weekly on their enquiry skills to study an over-arching  question: What impact dod the Golden Age of Islam of on our world today?

Off curriculum, many of our students worked as part of an effective team to organise and run a cake sale for the NSPCC - where we raised £555! We have also participated in numerous football and netball fixtures too.

We look forward to working up until half term - and then having a deserved rest!
