Year 6

Welcome to Year 6.  Please check here for latest updates.  This is the final year for our Year 6 children and we hope that we can build many memories before they go on to Secondary School. 

Please find the Autumn newsletter here which includes a mind-map of the autumn term curriculum topics.

Tuesday 30th November

Here is your work to do at home this morning.  You can do it in any order.

1)  Visit Mathletics and complete the activities set for you.   If you get stuck, click on the i button for some help.

2)  Visit MyOn and read a book of your choice.

3)  Visit Sir Linkalot and watch each of the Dickens Diarrhoea (level 5) videos to help you to learn them.  You can then have a go at a crossword or test.  Make a note of your score if you do a test.

4)  To continue to practise writing conversations with correct punctuation, imagine that the power cut at school wasn't an accident!  What if somebody had cut the power on purpose?  Imagine you and your friends are wandering around school in the dark and you see what happens.  Write a story extract with lots of conversation about you and your friends investigating and maybe getting into danger! 

Remember that we are trying to show action and character through speech.   Bring your story extracts in to share this afternoon.

We will resend the login details for Sir Linkalot to your parents by email.

See you at 12!

Science Centre Visit

In order to learn about electricity, year 6 have visited the science centre at Queen Mary's College.  Ottawa went in the morning and Lima went in the afternoon.   We experimented with different ways to change the brightness of the bulb, how to create doorbells, the effect of changing voltage and how to measure decibels. Here are some pictures:

Week 1 Autumn 2021

We have started our autumn term with two days of immersion to introduce the children to our topic of 'Contrasts'.

The children have been taking part in a selection process to show if they have the skills to visit Antarctica.

They have completed application forms, taken part in a quiz about survival, learnt knots and shelter building, used a compass, learnt to trust each other while blindfolded and put up Miss Warwick's tent!

We have learnt lots about our new classes this way and now need to decide who has passed and who will win the special trophies.

We have also studied Scott and his ill- fated expedition to the South Pole through drama so our days have been busy!
