This page will contain class newsletters, photos of interesting activities and useful links.
Week beginning 19th September
We've been looking at war poetry in our English lessons, focusing on In Flanders Fields. The children have then begun planning their own war poems, which they will be writing over the coming week. The plans are looking good so we're looking forward to seeing their finished pieces. In maths we've been revising addition and subtraction, building on what we've learnt over previous years and thinking about how to answer word problems, using these operations. We've had another look at Zones of Regulation in PSHE this week. Can you remember what the different zones are and what emotions someone might feel in each one?
Week beginning 12th September
We have continued our work on place value with some rounding.
With the sad news of the Queen, we thought it would be nice to do some art in tribute to her service, as well as some other Andy Warhol based art.
In history we wrote some explanations about how and why WW2 started.
Week beginning 5th September
It's been great to have everyone back in school. Year 6 have settled in fantastically. We have started our class novel and are reading 'Stay Where you are and then Leave' by John Boyne. It is set during WW1 and is about a boy who's father goes to war.
In maths we have been getting to grips with place value of numbers up to 10 million.
We have been doing lots of art based on Andy Warhol and pop art.
Week beginning 12.9.22
This week we've been exploring the art work of our class artist, Andy Warhol, and creating some brilliant artwork inspired by him. Our favourite is our collage of the late Queen Elizabeth II, to mark her passing. In maths, we've worked on place value - ordering numbers, rounding numbers and working with negative numbers. Our English lessons this week have focused on grammar. We have looked at subordinate clauses, relative clauses in particular, and written some descriptions using them. In history, we have begun our World War II topic and found out how and why it started. We were impressed by how knowledgeable some of our children already were on the subject!
All excited for back to school!
Welcome back Year 6,
It's been great to have you back at school and we are looking forward to a fun year with you all, full of lots of exciting experiences and challenges - starting with our hike up one of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, Pen-y-Ghent, in a few weeks. We can't wait!
