Welcome to the Year 6 page. Here we will keep you up to date with what we are doing. Look here for our news and photos.
Year 6 is an exciting year with lots of great visits and activities to make our learning fun.
Year 6 visit to Eden Camp
Our first visit of the year was to Eden Camp, an old World War 11 prisoner of War camp in North Yorkshire. The place is now a war museum where you can experience the sights and sounds of both World Wars.
We had a fantastic time and learnt lots of facts about Wartime Britain.
Here is some of the fabulous writing we have produced in our English lessons.
Classes 1 and 2 got our Class Assemblies off to a great start.
Here we are singing a selection of Wartime songs.
Maths in Motion
On Friday 14th October, Mr Robert and Mrs Hayward from The Openzone came to work with us on a day of exciting and challenging maths.
The Jaguar Maths in Motion Challenge is a way of engaging children in an exciting and motivating mathematics based project. The software is suitable for all ages from 8 upwards.
The Challenge involved year 6 working together in small teams. In our teams set up virtual racing cars and then competed against each other in a series of Grands Prix type races in the hope of becoming World Champions.
To get to the race stage we had to use a wide range of mathematical skills, some practical and some applied. The final races ere very exciting!
We EngAge Art Project
Using funding from The Cultural Spring, Classes 1 and 2 have started a 10 week intergenerational art project. We are working with our teachers and Claire Ford from We EngAge on digital creativity. Part of the work will be done in our classes in school, and part in small groups with residents of The Grange.
