Forest School

Year 6 had an amazing time in Forest School today. We lit a fire, sharpened our own sticks to toast marshmallows, drank A LOT of hot chocolate, sang songs, made willow stars and built dens. Thankfully the weather was perfect!

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. We are now spending increasing amounts of time rehearsing for our end of year production. The boys particularly enjoyed trying their costumes this week and are now looking forward to fully getting in role! 

Week Commencing 06.06.2022

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 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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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?

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.

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!

Tree Planting 

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.

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!

Heart Dissection

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!

WWII Day

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.
