This week we have used the laptops to help us with our topic work. We found out all about Fair trade and started to make engaging presentations.
Also, we used the IPads to support our maths work this week. Remember - you can also access mathletics at home to further support your child.
Investigating unfamiliar words.
This half term we are focusing on the novel 'Journey to the river sea'. This book contains lots of high level vocabulary and the children are working hard to understand this.
We have really enjoyed our final week before Christmas. This week we have: met Santa, made Christmas cards and calendars, dressed in our Christmas jumpers, dressed in our party clothes, enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner and played with our new wet playtime games.
Enterprise - Year 6
During art lessons, the children have created Christmas cards to sell after school. They have decided to donate all money raised to The RFL Benevolent Fund. This charity helps to support players whose lives are affected by serious injuries sustained whilst playing the game. Please support the children after school on Tue/Wed/Thu this week.
Hot Chocolate Time
Enjoying a hot chocolate after our carol singing. Yum! Yum!
Christmas Carol Singing
We had a great time entertaining the Christmas crowds at Iceland on Monday.
Christmas Jumper Day
The children really enjoyed wearing their Christmas jumpers today.
In our computer lessons, we have started making trailers linked to our English work. We have used the novel Skellig to inspire us and created the film trailers using the IPads. We will upload the final trailers once they are completed.
Perform a picture - Art Project
After the art ambassadors visited Leeds Art Gallery, we were inspired by a piece of artwork.
We re-created the picture using our bodies, wrote revolting poetry linked to the artwork and showed off our learning to the rest of the school.
Children in Need - Dressing up
Following on from our assembly last week, we had a workshop with the NSPCC. The children were very knowledgeable about how to keep safe and who to turn to for advice. I was also very impressed with the maturity of the children when they were discussing sensitive topics. Well done Parks!
Today we had a visitor from the NSPCC to talk to us about how to deal with anxiety and worries. We discussed who we could share our worries with and where to turn if we need help. We are now looking forward to our workshop next week.
Heart and Circulatory System - Visitor
We had a visitor from Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) to talk to us about the heart and circulatory system. Adam told us all about his role at the hospital and discussed the functions of the heart. The children asked some excellent questions and enjoyed the activities we did.
Year 6 have enjoyed completing their bikeability training over the past 2 weeks. They have worked hard to achieve their level 1 or level 2 certificates and badges.
The heart and circulatory system
This half term, our topic is all about the human heart and circulatory system.
The children have worked very hard over half term and produced some wonderful learning logs linked to this.
Working together to solve extremely difficult multiplication and division problems.
Opera North - Singing Workshop
Year 6 were one of only 3 schools selected to take part in an opera singing workshop. We enjoyed finding out about Colombian music and completing the singing activities with Patricia and James.
A huge well done for a fantastic class assembly - you have made us all very proud. Thank you to everyone who came to support the children.
Class Assembly Reminder
We will have our class assembly on Friday 13th October at 1:35. The children have helped to write it and have lines to learn for homework. They are very excited to show off their learning this half term. We hope to see you there.
The children dressed in their own clothes to raise money for 2 cancer charities. As a school, we have raised over £800! Well done! Check out the photographs of our indoor playtime.
This half term we will be working with Michael from the Hunslet Hawks to develop our rugby skills. This week we focused on our kicking and catching skills.
Drama activity linked to our class novel 'Friend or Foe'. The children thought about what it would be like to be evacuated during World War 2.
