Welcome to Year 6!
You want regular updates on what your child is doing in class in year 6? Look no further - you can find that right here! I will try to put new content here as often as possible, so keep coming back to see what's going on.
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites.
This half term, your task is to choose ONE African country to make an eye-catching, informative, A3 presentation about. Make it in any style you like, just make sure it looks superb and contains well researched information (i.e. don't just visit one website).
- population (languages, ages etc)
- culture (food, traditions)
- geographical points (landscape, landmarks, flag etc)
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
For our D&T project in our Fairgrounds topic, we were asked to make working models of arcade games, using levers or pulleys. Mayhem ensued, as you can imagine, but look at how brilliant our designs were - and they all work! We had a load of fun using different tools to complete our designs, especially when it was time to decorate.
In Art, we had a great time creating our own fairground silhouettes. First, we chose a colour scheme for the wash background, then used some delicate brush work to paint fairgrounds rides in the foreground. Don't they look great!?
We've been using K'nex to assemble models of different fairground rides. Although the k'nex was a little tricky to use, the hardest thing was probably showing good teamwork! Have a look at the pictures we took of our k'nex-perience (sorry).
We've been having fun in class learning about spirals - there's a lot more to them than you might think!
To draw Baravelle spirals, we needed to use a whole range of skills: geometry; calculation of fractions; measuring (and calculating decimals).
Who said life after SATs would be easy??
Happy homework time!
We're nearly at the end of our Science for the current topic.
Your task is to visit this website: http://www.dangerousdecibels.org/virtualexhibit/index.html
and learn all about the ear!
By FRIDAY 19th MAY, I need your labelled diagram of the ear.
Make it good! Learn the names! Work!
During SATs week, children in year 6 can come into school for 8:30am (please come to the Hall) for a pre-SATs breakfast, consisting of: juice, banana, waffles and toast. It's a great chance to get geared up for the day and make sure your brain is well fed!
Remember to get good sleep, too!
So far, only 3 children have been on Mathletics during the holidays - get on it!
It's not all tests, tests, tests in year 6 - we still have time for some fun! Take a look at the costumes the children wore and see some of the hats we made, inspired by the Mad hatter's tea party.
This is an optional one, but there are prizes available, so you might want to give it a good go!
Your task is to design your own ride for a theme park.
Here are the rules:
1) It must stand on an A4-sized piece of paper/card
2) It needs a name and a description
3) Points will be given for creative use of materials
We're learning all about humans - how our bodies work, why our nervous systems and digestive systems are important, and how to keep ourselves healthy. Follow the links below to do some research of your own!
Please remember to come along to our class assembly at 3:00pm on Friday 17th November 2016!
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
On 4th November we went on an amazing trip to the British Museum to help us learn more about the Ancient Greeks. We took part in a workshop, where we got to explore a whole array of artefacts, then we had a chance to look around the Greek exhibition on our own. What a good day it was!
