Welcome to Year 6’s Class Page
As Year 6 is such an important year, each Friday, you will be set weekly homework which will need completing and returning on the following Monday. It is also important that you are reading daily and using Reading Plus to improve your fluency and comprehension skills. Don’t forget the importance of times tables – remember you want to hit Gold on the 99 Club!
Freshwater Theatre Company
Year 6 were visited by the Freshwater Theatre Company. The workshop was based on our current science topic, ‘Animals Including Humans’. We found the sessions extremely engaging and informative. The educator, who was in role as a mad scientist, was very enthusiastic and kept children engaged throughout.
We learnt all about:
We had to input all our knowledge to get the Exploratorium working again!
Year 6 took part in many fun activities including, debates, role and play and acting out the journey in which our blood cells make on a daily basis.
This is what year 6 learnt and enjoyed:
Callum A: “ Today I have learnt that white blood cells fight off germs, I enjoyed acting as a blood cell and running through open valves.”
Lucy R: “Today I have learnt that bread has sugar in it. This really surprised me!”
Michelle: “Today I have learnt that red blood cells carry oxygen around the body and that hearts have four valves.”
This year, we were lucky enough to take part in Safeguarding Awareness Day. We have visits from DECCA (Drug Education Counselling Confidential Advice), Rewind (Racial Awareness), Anti-social Behaviour team and the amazing PC Treasure – who gave us tips on how to stay safe while online, in secondary and on the streets.
We found this day really engaging and informative. We learnt lots!
