Welcome to Year 6!
On Thursday, year 6 presented their homework project to their parents. The children have worked incredibly hard on their projects with their parents for the last 6 weeks and we are really proud of all their efforts. Well done year 6!
We have been learning about factors and multiples in Maths. Have a look at us playing a game and testing our multiplicative knowledge.
As part of our whole school focus on Judaism this week, year 6 presented their work about the links between Christianity and Judaism through the Passover.
In Science, we have studying pitch. We recapped on how we hear things and looked at how ears enable us to hear sounds. This week we have been looking specifically at how sounds are made through vibtrations and how these sounds have different pitches. We then made musical instruments to test out how we can make sounds with different pitches.
Inspired by our work on ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake, we created non-chronological reports on different types of tigers. We researched our sub species and then created our reports focussing on their diet, habitat, appearance and hunting style. We thought about our layout and below are our completed reports.
Year 6 had a fantastic day at Stanley High School taking part in a range of activities. We wrote newspaper reports in English, played dodgeball in PE, baked biscuits in Food Technology and fired rockets in Science. As you can see from our pictures below, a brilliant day was had by all.
Along with the whole school, year 6 had a great time creating their own poems based on ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake. We created art work based around the poem and performed it as a class in a school assembly.
