Year 6 - 6LS & 6M

Welcome to Year 6

Friday 23rd September    

The children are continuing to settle well into Year 6 and are working hard in their lessons.

 

English and History

In our English and history lessons this week, the children have been learning about what would have happened if an RAF pilot was shot down and captured during World War Two. We spent time exploring a replica of a document given to pilots explaining what they should do to avoid giving away any sensitive information.

 

To help consolidate their understanding, the children created short role plays to show the different ways the enemy forces would try to get information. (We are sorry if this learning makes the children more resistant to ‘interrogation’ at home when you are trying to work out who took the last biscuit from the tin.)

 

Maths

In Maths this week, the children have been continuing their learning on place value where we have moved onto comparing and rounding numbers.

 

Science

Continuing our unit on electricity, this week the children made simple circuits using lemons as a battery. The children showed a really positive attitude and were really engaged by the learning.

RE

In RE this week, we have spent time creating a new cover for our class reflection book and creating our first reflections based on our theme for this month, Growth Mind-set.

Friday 13th September    

This week, we have been very proud to have our first head boy and head girl for this year.

 

English and History

During our English and History lessons this week, the children have been researching the Battle of Britain. On Monday afternoon, we were visited by a member of the home guard and then by a member of the RAF who showed us a range of different equipment they each uses in their roles. The children were surprised by the WW2 equivalent of a mobile phone, everyone wanted to try on the parachute and there was a mixed reaction from the children who decided to try the spam.

Over the next two weeks, the children will be using what they have learnt to help them write an information page about the RAF.

 

Maths

In Maths this week, the children have started a unit on place value. We have been particularly looking at how to read, write and compare numbers up to ten million. The children were fascinated by the information on this site about the world’s population and made predictions about how much they think it will grow over the coming years.

Music

Linking to our theme of World War Two, this week the children listened to and compared the national anthems of the United Kingdom and Germany.

 

RE

This term in RE, we are focusing on creation. This week, we were exploring how Christians believe the world was created and what questions the children have about the Genesis Chapter 1. Over the coming weeks, we will be comparing the different ways Christians interpret this part of the bible.

 

Home Learning

For home learning this week, the children have been given a copy of a leaflet that was used in WW2 to recruit pilots. Once they have read and discussed the text at home, we would like the children to record some of the things they have found out and what questions they have as a result of reading it. The children have also been given a maths task to complete this week. Both of these tasks are due on Thursday 19th September.

Friday 6th September    

This week the children have settled well into Year 6 and are already showing what great role models they are.

English

During our English lessons this week, the children have been preparing letters to apply for their ideal Year 6 responsibility. There are lots of roles on offer and the children are very keen to start. It will take some time for the Year 6 team to read all the applications, but we are hoping to let the children know which role they have been given by the end of next week.

Learning Journey

In our Learning Journey lesson this week, we have started our learning on World War 2 by exploring the events leading up to the Battle of Britain. We have also started our new class reader, Friend or Foe, which is set in this time period.

Maths

In Maths this week, the children have been revising their methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, so they can show what they already know and what they need to learn next.

PE

This term in PE, we are focusing on our athletic skills. Yesterday, we all went out on the field to engage in a carousel of activities. Mrs Strand came to visit the class at the start of the lesson, which gave the children a chance to show off their new PE kits.

Home Learning

For home learning this week, the children have been asked to cover their new contact books and home learning books. This makes it much easier for them to find their books when they need to show the teacher their work and when they are packing them at the end of the day.
