19th January - Drawing Circles
It is always a challenge to learn how to use a compass but Year 6 have mastered it beautifully today! We have learnt the relationship between the diameter and the radius and used a compass to demonstrate these.
18th January - Unconventional Art
After researching Diego Rivera's artwork, Year 6 hunted around their homes to find unconventional drawing tools. We sure did have a lot of fun experimenting with dipping our tools in 'ink' and creating art inspired by the Mayans and Diego Rivera.
7th December - Christmas Jumper Day
In Year 6, we had a really busy Christmas Jumper Day full of festive fun! The first of our dress rehearsals & a visit from Father Christmas himself! We also gave him a sneak preview when we sang him the song from our christmas performance too!
6th November - Gifted and Talented PE Day
Some of us were honoured to represent our class in a gifted and talented sports day where we were offered the opportunity to try lots of different sports and exercise activities.
23rd October - A "Scientific Buzz"
The start of our science topic began with exploring static electricity. We charged balloons and measured the strength of the charge through experimenting how much confetti we could lift.
19th October - Tag Rugby Festival
Today, we visited the Tag Rugby festival and played in teams to showcase our sporting skills. It was great to be out in the environment competing in the community.
11th October - Mayan Mask Creations
We explored the similarities and differences of Mayan masks and then created our own battle, ceremony or death masks. Take a look at our creations below.
10th October - When Toys Visited Year 6...
In conjunction with our current class reader "The Land of Neverendings", Year 6 received a visit, to their English lesson, from many different types of toys and characters. This is was exciting opportunity for us to use our vocabulary and writing to bring our soft and furry friends to life.
6th October - Year 6 Celebration Assembly
Well done to all Year 6's for a fantastic start to the year. We have all worked our socks off in a variety of subjects so it was refreshing to be the first class to celebrate our achievements so far this year! If you would like to take a closer look at the work that was awarded or you were not able to make it to watch our assembly, please click the image below to see our presentation.
3rd October - Spreadsheets!
Our computing topic for this half term is spreadsheets. We have used a data collection spreadsheet to explore the probability of rolling certain or different numbers on a dice. This turned into a fun, friendly competition of who could reach the highest amount of each number.
18th September - House Captains
Our first piece of writing was focused on the tools (not rules) of formal writing so that we could perform strong speeches to become House Captains or School Councillors. It was incredible to see so many children putting themselves forward for these Pupil Voices roles in our school community
