Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome to the Y6 area of the website.

PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays.

Bears of Sheffield Appeal / Australian Bushfires

Year 6LM/FR raised an amazing £240.31 for the Bears of Sheffield appeal and the Australian Bushfires.

The children decided on their fun raising activities which include selling cakes, toy sale, dance routines, lucky dip box, penalty football and basketball shoot out.

The whole school was invited to the event and was enjoyed by all!

 

What are we learning?

Spring 1 Term

This half term, Y6 are asking:

'Who had it worse: The Elizabethans or The Victorians?'.

We will be comparing the two eras, visiting a Victorian workhouse, and hosting Horrible Histories themed Pub Quiz for parents and carers.

We hope to see you there!

Our Spring 1 Learning

The Year 6's went to Ripon to visit a Victorian workhouse to understand what life was like in the Victorian era. They had to clean, make rag rugs from old clothing and be taught by a Victorian school teacher and follow his strict rules!

(Left) Father Philips explained how christian people supported vulnerable people in society.

(Right) The children were learning about vertebrates and invertebrates and the sub groups.

(Left) Y6 have been designing and making outfits out for kings and queens in the Elizabethan and Victorian era.

(Right) The Year 6 curriculum learning destination was a success and attended by many of the Year 6 parents and carers. The event was a pub quiz (questions by the children). The children also provided the entertainment which involved singing, playing musical instruments and magic tricks!

Autumn 2 Term

This half term we are asking 'Your island: Your Rules. Who has got what it takes?'. This will take a geography focus, and the children will be learning about climates, trade and economics.

In science, the children will be learning about evolution and inheritance and we are looking forward to welcome several visitors into school to deliver some exciting sessions.

Autumn 1 Term

This half term we are asking, 'Great Grandma, where were you during WWII?'.

As part of this learning journey we are hoping to tell family stories and share experiences about the war or life back at home. If you have any within your family, please share these with your children.

We are starting the learning journey with a trip to Eden Camp on the 12th of September.
