Summer Term 2021
Year 6 Easter Pre-Learning Tasks
Spring - Welcome Back
Upon returning to school, Year 6 have demonstrated resilience and an impressive positive mindset. Naturally, it has been a testing time and they have dealt admirably with the challenges put before them. They have embraced their learning with vigour and determination and used their imaginations to create a very entertaining class book, The Ultimate Guide to Unicorns. In geography, they have started to investigate rivers and mathematics has involved interpreting and constructing pie charts and solving missing number problems and expressing them algebraically.
In religious education, the children have studied Scripture, John 6: 35-59, and have written articles about the meaning of the bread of life, making links to our school motto, Fidem Fateri Vita. They have also been busy preparing for Easter with their reflection of The Way of the Cross, which offers them a powerful way to contemplate, and enter into the mystery of Jesus' gift of himself to us.
The second half of the term has flown by and year 6 have worked incredibly hard. We have studied World War II, written for a range of purposes and have worked collaboratively on group presentations.
The class prepared a beautiful prayer corner of Remembrance and presented and created a socially distanced Covid-19 safe Advent Service.
The term has been jam-packed with learning, fun and developing leadership skills. Every member of the class is now wearing their prefect badge and the children are already planning new projects for each council group for the Spring term.
Let's look forward to a happy, healthy and safe 2021 and well done year 6 for an amazing first term.
Year 6 Spring A pre-learning tasks
Autumn Term 2020
Year 6 have settled wonderfully into the routines and expectations of this new academic year. They are demonstrating excellent levels of responsibility and are already proving to be wonderful role models for the younger pupils of our school to look up to and follow.
In class we have begun our class text War Horse, which is providing many rich opportunities for thoughtful and insightful discussion around this time in history. Delving into our history topic of World War II, the pupils have produced newspaper reports on the outbreak of war and have begun looking at the Dig for Victory campaign. Inspired by the characters of Dr Carrot and Potato Pete, the pupils created their own vegetable versions with slogans and anthems to match.
We have also enjoyed our first class worship in the Holy Garden, which was organised by a small group of pupils. This allowed the pupil's to reflect on all that we want to achieve this year and to be reminded that God is with them always, as they embark on the new challenges and adventures that this year will bring.
