Hello and welcome to 6W website page.
The adults working in our class are:
We also work very closely with:
Year 6 have worked very hard this half term and we are very proud of how they have applied themselves during our End of Key Stage Tests.
We are currently working on our leavers production 'Pirates of the Currybean' and completing many transition activities to prepare the children for high school. Our production dates are:
- Mon 27th June (1:15)
- Wed 29th June (6:00)
- Thu 30th June (9:30)
There is also a final year 6 only assembly on Friday 1st July (9:15).
We hope to see you there!
We have also implemented a new reward system for the children where they can earn stamps for excellent behaviour and effort in class. They hope to earn enough to go bowling and Pizza Hut, the cinema and many more fun activities.
This week year 6 received rocket seeds from Tim Peake (who is the British astronaut currently on board the ISS). Some of the seeds have been to space with Tim and some have not. We have set up an investigation to find out if the seeds grow differently and look forward to the results.
Tim Peake and our rocket seeds!
Easter Egg Competition
The children in 6W have been busy at home creating some egg-cellent eggs for our competition. A huge well done to Reagan - the 6W overall winner.
In our science lesson today we investigated blood! We found out what is in our blood and the jobs that they do. We then created 'blood soup' to show the red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets.
We had a lot of fun raising money for Sport Relief. We dressed up in our sporty clothing and ran a mile around the playground. We also had fun on the obstacle course.
During a drama lesson we conducted a conscience alley. This is where the children are either for or against a point of view and try to convince others to agree with them. This was linked to our current novel 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo as the main character David had a very difficult decision to
make - should he help the German pilot or not?
World Book Day
We had a lot of fun dressing up as well known characters from books. Don't you think our costumes are fantastic?
The children in 6W went to the library on Monday 18th January. We had a good look around the facilities and all selected a book we really wanted to read. We have brought the books back to school and look forward to reading them.
Healthy Schools Week
This week we are working on what it means to be healthy. We are going to be tasting some healthy snacks in class and attempting to do at least 60 minutes of exercise per day. We have participated in a Zumba lesson and plan to do yoga in class everyday. As well as this, we will be investigating how a healthy lifestyle can benefit our minds and bodies during our science lessons.
Working hard to understand the order of operations.
Welcome back, we hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas break.
This half term the children will be starting a topic about the Maya Civilisation.
In English, we are focusing on newspaper reports linked to a twist on a traditional tale. We will move onto extended poetry later on in the half term.
In maths, we are going to be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages for the next few weeks.
Christmas Jumper Day
Check out our awesome Christmas jumpers.
On the day that Tim Peake went into space, year 6 flew their very own rockets. They were amazing and flew so high! Check out the videos below.
Say hello to the school's new engineers and astronauts. This week year 6 have been making our very own bottle rockets to fly into space. As well as this, we have been working extremely hard on
up-levelling a fictional letter. Also, some children are currently at Herd Farm - we hope they are having fun!
Anti-Bullying Week - Make A Noise About Bullying
In 6W we have discussed and researched bullying and came up with the slogan 'Banish Bullying!'. We then looked at the theme 'Make A Noise About Bullying'. The children decided to make 'loud' posters about anti-bullying using graffiti and bright colours. We have also made a video about bullying.
What do you think?
This week the children have been exploring planets during our topic lessons.
We have created rhymes to help us remember the order of the planets.
Here is an example:
We also compared the size of the planets and explored how they move around the Sun.
Cycling with The Works
10 children were selected to have a special day with The Works. They were chosen based on their behaviour and attitude towards school this year. They had loads of fun !
This week year six have completed their Stories With Suspense! They have worked very hard to include a spooky atomosphere and use figurative language. We have also continued our work on WW2 in our topic, computing, music and guided reading lessons.
Here are a few sentences from our stories this week:
A huge well done to 6W for their fantastic class assembly all about World War 2! Amazing acting and super singing from everyone!
Exploring atlases to locate cities that were targeted during The Blitz.
South Leeds Academy Visit
The children in year 6 really enjoyed their recent trip to South Leeds Academy. They impressed us all with their outstanding behaviour and positive attitude throughout all tasks. We got to experience some 'taster' lessons such as: Geography, History, Science and French.
