Word Millionaires

We were delighted today to present these three pupils with very prestigious ‘Word Millionaire’ trophies in assembly. Amie, Evie and Ashlee have been such enthusiastic and dedicated readers, both in and out of school that they have read over one million words through our Accelerated Reader program. We are very proud of them and hope to be awarding more Word Millionaires soon.

A Visit from Zoe Emma Scott

The whole school will be spending some time working with local artist Zoe Emma Scott. This afternoon, it was the turn of Y6A.

The children spent some time thinking of signs of Spring before creating a Springtime picture.

First, they sketched in pencil, then outlined in black pen before painting and adding texture. Zoe was on hand to give expert advice and the children grew in confidence and skills as the afternoon went on. Everyone had a great time and we have many budding artists.

Look out for our finished pieces…..

Terrific Tigers

This half term in Y6 we have based all of our work in Literacy around tigers. We have read the famous William Blake poem “The Tyger” and we’ve used this to help us write our own rhyming poems.

We have explored lots of different charity adverts for endangered species and created our own charity posters highlighting the importance of the conservation of tigers and explaining why they are an endangered species.

In art we have also took great care to sketch images of tigers and we have added a variety of materials to our artwork. Before half term, we will be using all of the information we have learned about tigers to write our own non-chronological report about Bengal Tigers.

Fun Fact: Did you know that no tiger has the same stripes? Every tiger is different! Just like our fingerprints.

Year 6 Lumb Bank Visit

Our children arrived safely at Lumb Bank on Monday and it has been all go since then.  Children have enjoyed spending time with authors in residence and will enjoy a visiting author on Thursday and a special guest that they might know already – Mrs Napier!

Children will have a week of being creative and tapping into the knowledge and enthusiasm of best-selling authors and poets like John Hegley and Jamila Gavin- it’s the trip of a lifetime.

We hope you enjoy the photographs.

Looking at Living Things

In Science, Year 6 have been learning about living things and their habitats.

We have looked at different types of animals and how to classify them. In the last lesson, we looked at the parts of a flower. We discussed each part of a flower and how flowers are pollinated and dispersed.

Next, we will be looking at micro-organisms and performing an experiment with mold!

 

Year 6 Homework Clubs

Just a quick reminder that the usual Friday Homework Club will be running from Friday 12th January, and also to add that there will an additional Homework Club running every Tuesday too.

Both clubs will run from 12.10 until around 12.35, when the children will go and have their lunch.

The aim of the club is to enable your child to be supported with homework they feel they may struggle with or to provided time for them to do their homework if they have a busy after-school life.

A member of the Year 6 teaching staff will always be available at each club to discuss any problems and support the pupils with their homework.

We hope to see lots of our Year 6 pupils taking advantage of these clubs.
