Welcome to Year 6!
The Y6 children had a brilliant time on their residential at Dearne Valley. They took part in a range of activities including rock climbing, leap of faith, buggy building, orienteering and Jacobs ladder. The children behaved exceptionally and we are very proud of how they represented the school. We haven't put all the photographs on as we want to save some for the children's leavers assembly.
All of year 6 had a great time at Edge Hill University last week. Every child graduated in Y6 and they should all be very proud of the commitment they have shown throughout their time at school. Special mention goes to Bethany Fyles who gained the most credits and won the Oustanding Achiever award.
The children had a brilliant day at Premier Bowl. They had lunch, played laser tag and competed in ten pin bowling. It was a great end to the week.
The children worked together in small groups looking at different statements Jesus had made about Himself in the Bible.We discussed the statements and created collages to explain what we thought He meant.
On Monday, the children had their first Bike It session. The session was all about getting the children ready for the trip out on the road. Everyone had great fun learning skills and they can’t wait for their next session.
On Friday, year 6 took part in an Irish Dancing workshop. they had lots of fun learning a new routine and practicing new skills just in time for St Patrick’s Day.
Year 6 had a brilliant day on Thursday at the Cathedral. They took part in a range of different workshops including a guided tour, creating a book, making stained glass windows and drama. The workshops helped to deepen the children’s understanding of Easter in a fun and interactive way.
On Thursday, the children took part in World Book Day. All of the children looked absolutely fantastic and made huge amounts of effort with their costumes. Well done year 6! You all looked brilliant.
Some of the year 6 children led a worship on Forgiveness. They read the story of the Prodigal Son and asked us to think about why it is important to demonstrate forgiveness to all like Jesus did. The children worked extremely hard to create their worship and thought carefully about the message they were delivering.
In Science, the children were looking at natural selection. They were each given a ‘beak’ which they then used to collect food. If they collected enough food, they lived and were able to reproduce. If they didn’t, their species unfortunately died out. The children had great fun learning about this aspect of nature.
We have been looking at circuits in electricity and we created a human circuit using our bodies. Have a look at our video below.
In Maths, we have been looking at the cardinal points of a compass. We then created paths for our friends to follow using these points.
We have been learning all about non-chronological reports in English this week. We have created reports on polar bears as this links to our work on Climate Change. We looked at their life cycles, diet, appearance and how they hunt.
On Thursday, some of our year 6 parents were invited into the classroom to watch their children perform their collective worship. The group worked extremely hard on their worship and all who took part learnt a valuable lesson about friendship. It was lovely to have some quiet time to reflect on what friendship means.
The children have been learning about climate change in Geography. We have created art work and have written short narratives on an imagined future where global warming has ruined the planet. The videos accompany our written work.
In year 6 we have been writing our own version of the poem If I Were.. by Eva L Robinson. We have also drawn self-portraits and did some performance poetry.
