Dates for the diary:
Friday 19th October
What a fun filled first half term we have had in Year 6! It has flown by with our class text of Stormbreaker, looking at the four operations and introducing fractions in maths as well as unconditional love and commitment in RE.
We are continuing our Ancient Maya topic looking at the celebrations and how religion was an integral part of their lives. The children have been set Big Write homework to research this for a non-chronological report.
Friday 5th October
The children have had a great week this week learning about Maya artefacts and creating their own Maya masks. They have used papier-mâché to mould and create different shapes to create a 3D mask. Children have created their own gadgets for Alex Rider to use and then used their powers of persuasion to sell these products.
Friday 21st September
We finished another fun filled week with 6A’s class collective worship - where they spoke about God’s unconditional love for us. It was a great celebration of all that we have learned through God’s teachings about how to love our family, friends and communities.
On this very windy week, sailing was... interesting! With a large number of children falling in the water (which they loved) and sailing at high speeds. Let’s hope it’s slightly calmer on the waters next week.
Friday 14th September
Well, we have had a fantastic full week in Year 6. We are super impressed at how hard the children have been working. We have delved deeper into our class book “Stormbreaker” and the descriptions the children wrote this morning were outstanding!
Both classes began their sailing lessons this week (please see the photos below) and everyone had brilliant afternoon!
We also started our times tables challenge- so keep practicing everyone!
Have a lovely weekend!
Friday 7th September
What a fantastic first week back we have had in Year 6!
The children have stepped up to the challenge of being top of the school and are excited about all the great things to come this year.
We have started our new novel in English - Stormbreaker - and the children already have many theories on what is going to happen. In maths we have been looking at place value and representing numbers in a variety of ways. We have started our topic on the Ancient Maya civilisation and are excited to learn more.
Year 6 were lucky enough to test out the new laptops in their computing lesson where they looked at algorithms of animations and input and output.
Sailing starts next week, please remember old clothes and a towel.
