Drayton Manor Trip

Pupils from Year 6 enjoyed a scorching hot day at Drayton Manor Theme Park, culminating in the whole class riding the dodgems.

Marvellous Mountains Topic

In Year Six, we have been focusing on developing our knowledge on human and physical geography. We have focused on learning about mountains and linked topics including weather, map skills, features and tourism. We even interviewed a mountaineer.

Our Biome Art Work

During the Spring term in Year 6, we have been creating biome landscapes. We could either choose tundra, savannah, desert, rainforest, aquatic, forest or grassland. We used pastels, water colours, poster paint and collage – for animals. It worked out very well. Some are now on display in the Year 6 classroom.

Year 6’s Victorian School Day

On Tuesday 5th December, Years 5 and 6 had a Victorian school day. Mr Filby dressed up as a Victorian teacher and we were not allowed to smile. The activities included: a school photo, a silhouette portrait of you or someone else using black and white papermaking a mini Victoria sponge cake with cream and jam in the middle, learning about manners and our school, and writing on slate with ink and pen. The final activity was about Victorian PE, drill, and Victorian playground games. All the children enjoyed themselves and had lots of fun.

Microscopes

This week we have been using the microscopes in science.  We looked at colour coded slides which had parts of insects, animals and plants.  We then had to draw them using the naked eye, a magnifying glass and the microscopes and compare them.

Equipment Needed:-

PE is on a Tuesday and Friday:  PE Kit should be left in school and can be taken home to be washed at the end of each Half Term.

Children should bring in a water bottle which they have access to in the classroom.

Children have been given a new reading folder and diary; this should be in school on a daily basis as volunteers may hear children read at any time.

In Year 6, it is essential that children complete homework tasks to support their learning in class and to prepare them for secondary school.
