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.

 

Year 6 Carol Concert

Thank you to all who could come to Year 6’s final carol concert. The pupils performed brilliantly and I’m sure there were a few tears shed by those watching! It is amazing to think how much our Year 6 have grown since their first Nativity in Nursery. We are all very proud of them.

From all of Year 6, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2018.

Showstopping week in Year 6

What an exciting week Year 6 have had. We hope you managed to catch us on BBC Look North on Monday evening.

Some of the children were interviewed and they discussed the importance of staying safe online. At the end of the week Y6F also had their class assembly. They told their parents all about the work that they have done this term and shared some of their work.

With only 2 weeks left until the end of the term, we are still working hard and we have lots to look forward to including our Y6 Christmas party (14th December) and our Christmas Carol Concert (21st December).

Hear all about it!

Year 6 have been reading the famous Victorian tale, ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens. The children have written some amazing newspaper articles about Jacob Marley’s visit to Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve. They have used a variety of journalistic phrases to make their work authentic.

Look out for these astounding articles on Pupil Progress Day!

 

Woodland Trust Project

Each class, from nursery to Year  6, has been involved in planting trees delivered by the Woodland Trust. We’ve planted them in our yard, in the far field and around the car park. It has been a wonderful opportunity for everyone to work as part of a team and to help the environment. Toffee even joined some of the children. Can you spot him?

We can’t wait to see the trees grow!

Larceny, Arson and Murder in Y6A!

Larceny, arson and murder are just some of the crimes 6A were arrested for during our Crime and Punishment workshop on Thursday. Their ‘mug-shots’ were taken to be stored in the event of future crimes they may commit. As a punishment, they were set to a five-minute stint of ‘soft-labour’ – separating rope into the thinnest strands to make stuffing for mattresses. Some of them quite liked it!

Year 6 Carol Concert Preparations

Rehearsals have begun for our Year 6 Carol Concert, which will be held on the morning of Thursday 21st December (times to follow in a letter soon). The children have been busy learning some new carols using different singing arrangements. There has been a lot of interest in our solo singing parts – which may have to become duets as the standard of hopefuls is so high!

The children have also been writing the scrips and readings that will link our carols together and tell the story of the Nativity. It’s going to be another difficult task to choose whose work will be used.

Anti-Bullying Week – Odd Sock Day!

This year’s anti-bullying week got off to a fantastic start with our school’s involvement in Odd Sock Day , organised by the Anti-bullying Alliance.

First, the children were involved in an assembly, where their views on how they are kept safe in school and suggestions for developing this further were taken into account.

After taking some ‘creative’ photographs of the vast array of children’s socks, we talked about being unique – All Different, All Equal.

We will be entering our photographs in an Odd Socks Day Competition on Twitter – we are proud to be All different and All Equal.
