This week Year 6 enjoyed a Bike Fix session where they learnt key skills on how to look after their bikes in order to remain safe.

The boys particularly enjoyed trying their costumes this week and are now looking forward to fully getting in role!

Year 6 have had a truly exciting week this week. Thank you to Mr and Mrs Howarth for bringing in their hot air balloon into school this week. Every child from nursery to Y6 enjoyed this experience.
We also had Sports Day this week. Year 6 really impressed me with their resilience and sportsmanship - they cheered each other on and celebrated happily with those that won. Well done Y6!
Year 6 have been working tirelessly this week with the rehersal of their end of year production - Cinderella and Rockerfella. It is certainly not one to be missed!
Week Commencing 23.05.2022
Year 6 had a chance to become entrepreneurs this week. They made their own games for children across the school to play at playtime. Amazingly, they have raised £70. All proceedings will be donated to a charity of their choice. Well done Y6!

This week, Year 6 have been practising their class assembly. In addition to this, they have had 500,000 to create their own theme park in maths. They have calculated profit and loss - ensuring their theme park has all the facilities to make their customers happy!

In addition to making a tremendous effort during SATs this week, Year 6 have enjoyed revision sessions. They wanted to create a graffiti revision poster for all the mathematical facts they needed to know. Well done Year 6! You have worked at your very best this week and that is all we can ask for from you. Now let’s enjoy the rest of the year together before you venture off to High School!
Week Commencing 25.04.2022

We have had a busy week in Year 6 this week! We have hit the ground running this first week back. In addition to starting revision for SATs, we enjoyed Earth Day on Friday. Year 6 made a fantastic effort helping their family and friends plant bulbs and plants around the school grounds. It now truly feels like summer!

This week Year 6 have been calculating area, perimeter and volume. In order to understand rectilinear shapes better, we drew, cut and calculated their area/perimeter. Year 6 also learnt how to calculate the area of triangles and cuboids.
Week Commencing 14.03.2022 - Science Week
Visit to Brownedge
Year 6 have come back with a spring in their step after their residential last week. Thank you to Mr Astle, Mr Cox, Mrs Edgerley, Miss Carter and Miss Dewhurst for ensuring Year 6 had the best time. This week, we started off by visitng Brownedge and taking part in an exciting Biology lesson looking at onion cells! Thank you to the amazing staff at Brownedge for another fun filled afternoon.
Visit from Fun Science
Fun at Lunchtime
Year 6 really impressed Mrs Jones during Wednesday lunchtime when they organised a game of 'Duck, Duck, Goose' for them and the younger children. The game was enjoyed by everyone. Well done Year 6 for explaining the rules to the younger ones and helping them join in.
Week Commencing 28.02.2022
This week Year 6 enjoyed a visit from Father Raphael. In Wednesday’s service, we received the sign of the cross and respectfully contemplated what we could possibly ‘give up’ for lent. Year 6 came up with some really thoughtful responses.
Week Commencing 21.02.2022
This week in Year 6 we have started writing about their very own ‘Room of Wonder’ related to our class book – The Nowhere Emporium. Year 6 have made some outstanding rooms during half term; Mrs Jones was blown away by their submissions.
Darcey's Edible Room
Mylo and Lucas's Space Room Georgia's Edible Room
Freya's Wishing Well Room
Elivia's Room of Dreams
Ebony's Room - Free of Worries
Year 6 also received their Leavers' Hoodies this week. They feel lucky to have them already! Thank you to our wonderful PTFA!
Week Commencing 07.02.2022
This week In English we had a debate on whether or not Lucien Silver is good or evil. The class were well and truly divided over their opinions. Year 6 impressively managed to find a variety of evidence from the text to support their answers. We made some ground-breaking inferences too! Safe to say we have a few budding politicians on our hands!
Week Commencing 31.01.2022
This week we enjoyed a welcomed visit from Destiny in Year 5. Destiny shared a flawlessly prepared PowerPoint with Year 6 all about Chinese New Year. She taught us how to write luck in Chinese and shared some nuggets of knowledge about the Chinese culture. Year 6 enjoyed having Destiny as a teacher and were completely captivated! Thank you Mr Astle for sharing with us the magic of Destiny!
In English this week we closely read the prologue of The Nowhere Emporium. Using the prologue, we created some freeze frames illustrating each scene. Year 6 did a fantastic job at representing people, emotions or atmosphere. They truly allowed the magic of the Emporium to consume them. Well done Year 6 :)
Week Commencing 24.01.2022
This week we started reading The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie. Two chapters in and Year 6 are already hooked. We cannot wait to see what wonderful tasks await us as we explore this magical book further. In maths we have been working tirelessly converting fractions to decimals. We've really had to dig in this week as recalling times tables rapidly has been a challenge, but Year 6 never shy away from a challenge!
Week Commencing 17.01.2022
This week Year 6 started wrtiting their own version of 1000 Year Old Boy by Ross Welford. We have loved this book and are really enjoying writing our own versions descriptively. In science, we have been writing about animal adaptations. Did you know that the peppered moth, elusively white grey, turned black during the industrial revolution in order to ensure it could camouflage itself from predators?
Week Commencing 03.01.2022
Happy New Year! Year 6 have come back to school raring to go!
This week, we familiarised ourselves with our new science topic: Evolution and Inheritence. We also revealed our new history topic: Early Islamic Civilisation. To celebrate the 'House of Wisdom', which was a research and education centre that attracted academics from all over the world, Mrs Jones has introduced a new reading challenge. Twenty new books have been purchased for Year 6 to read. Upon the completion of each book, 20 dojos will be awarded. If all 20 books are read, 100 dojos plus a sweet treat will be awarded. Year 6 are very excited about this new challenge, and have already selected the book they would like to read first.
Week Commencing 29.11.2021
Objects of Immortality - English
Year 6 have been reading the wonderful book: 1000 Year Old Boy by Ross Welford. In the book, Alfie uses a lifeperler to become immortal. Year 6 loved this idea so we created our own objects of immortality. Using the techniques of persuasion, we wrote persuasive adverts and non-chronological reports. We are delighted with the final outcome!
Week Commencing 22.11.2021
Today, Year 6 had the opportunity to plant a tree on the school field. Each child helped their little friend to do the same. Thank you to Mr and Mrs Edgerley for providing the children with this unique learning opportunity. It is so heart-warming to think that each and every child will leave something special behind for others to enjoy when they move on.
Week Commencing 15.11.2021
Design and Technology Project with Brownedge High School
We have come to the end of our 5-week Design and Technology Project with Brownedge High School. Year 6 launched the cars they made, recorded the speed travelled and calculated the mean average. So much learning and so much fun. Thank you to Miss Smith at Brownedge for all the hard work you put in to this project!
Week Commencing 03.11.2021
Last week, Year 6 had the opportunity to dissect pig hearts. We had a visit from Mrs Scorah who was extremely impressed with Year 6's knowledge and understanding of the heart. We dissected pig hearts, and looked at them closely both inside and out. Safe to say that by the end of the lesson we had a few children who now aspire to be heart surgeons!
Week Commencing 18.10.2021
Today we had a visit from History Alive to celebrate WWII Day. Year 6 were ready for the occasion dressed in their WWII costumes, a perfect scene set for an utterly educational day! We were lucky enough to explore WWII artefacts from 'Guzunders' (chamber pots) to old fashioned kitchen utensils. At first we weren't sure what to do with such items, but Year 6 are quick learners. We were soon role playing with the artefacts, totally immersed in what life during war time would have been like.
