Year 6 - Miss Hunter
Important things to remember:
- Our P.E. Day is a Wednesday (afternoon). Remember to remove earrings and have a bobble for long hair. You can come to school in your P.E. kit but remember as the weather gets cooler, that plain joggers would be best.
- Please remember to bring a water bottle to school with you each day.
- If you have a music lesson, you will need your instrument on a Tuesday or a Friday.
- You should return your reading book and home school diary to school every day.
We have moved on from our topic where we learnt all about the Victorians and have been learning about a book called The Ship of Shadows. It is a fantastic book where our young heroine called Aleja accidentally finds herself on board a magical ship. She overcomes lots of challenges and adversity and finds her life very interesting. In the rest of our lessons, we have been learning about countries of Europe, The circulatory system in humans, and how artists show messages with their art work.
Tag Rugby Champions!
Year 6 had a fantastic time taking part in the rugby tournament against Hudson Road school. After our two coaching sessions at school, we headed off ready for the tournament with a key message from our coach: pass it back! The cold weather didn’t stop the children and they tried their very best in every game. They showed fantastic team work skills and were cheering each other on. They were over the moon to have won most of their games! We are very proud of all of the children and their achievements in this tournament! We have lots of talented athletes in Year 6 so we hope they keep up their new skill.
Welcome back to the Autumn term! We have lots of wonderful activities planned. In history, we are going to be learning all about the Victorians. You will learn who Queen Victoria was and some of the big changes that happened during her reign. In science, we are also going to be learning about electricity and how to investigate different circuits. Hopefully, you will be able to remember some knowledge from when you studied electricity in Year 4!
Our first attempt at designing!
During our first design technology lesson of the year, children were given the task of building the tallest tower using A4 paper, scissors and nothing else. At first they found it very tricky because how could you make a piece of paper taller than it already is? But then, some of the teams began to think outside of the box. The paper didn't need to be glued together to make it longer. Instead, they could use different folds or cuts to join the towers together. Once they had experimented, together as a class, we came up with design criteria. The children were given more time to create their tower, using the new design criteria. Each of the towers were judged in three different categories, by the design team and then by a competitor. Some of the results were excellent!
