Year 6 Learning Highlights

Summer 1 Week 6 

 

We have been so proud of all Year 6 this week as they have displayed their best selves in every aspect of their learning.  After a tough SATs week, the children have displayed their determination and resilience to get back to the normal business of classroom learning.  Well done Year 6 - we wish you all and your families a very happy half term and hope the weather is kind so that you can have some fresh air and fun!

 

Highlight of a Core Subject:

 

English:  Year 6 have written some exceedingly forthright formal letters of complaint.  Some of the children used the class text to imagine themselves in role as a wolf writing to a solicitor to avoid eviction (not an easy thing).  Other children wrote back to Mrs Walker to challenge her accusations of having an untidy classroom (very brave!). 

 

Highlight of a Foundation Subject:

 

Spanish:  The children have ended the week with a Spanish morning.  They have imagined themselves as Estate Agents and have designed a house using their computing skills learnt in Tinker Cad.  They have then used all their learning about 'Mi Casa' to write descriptions of the house for sale and label parts of the property in Spanish.

 

PE:

Next half term, our PE sessions will be:  Football with Stockport County on a Monday - please bring outdoor PE kit. Outdoor and Adventurous PE will be covered in the upcoming Year 6 Residential.

 

Spanish: using Tinker Cad to design a house and label rooms in Spanish

Welcome to Week 5 of the Summer Term!

 

Highlight of a core subject

We are incredibly proud of the resilience, focus and hard work that the children have shown across all of their SATs exams this week. They have worked as a team to support each other. Every single child was undoubtedly showcasing themselves as their best self-well done!


It is clear that Year 6 are maturing and thriving in their leadership positions across the school; these images of Year 6 reading with their reception buddies epitomise this. It is wonderful to see the children sharing their love of reading with KS1!

 

Highlight of a foundation subject

Within our RE sessions this week we have focused on the question 'Is it better to express your religion in arts and architecture or in charity and generosity?' We explored great examples of Muslim architecture and presenting our reasons for choosing those they find most impressive using our transferable computing skills (creating power point presentations)

Welcome to Week 4 of Summer Term!
 

Highlight of a core subject

 

In English, we have enjoyed focused guided reading sessions analysing song lyrics and inferring meaning from our favourite artists. We explored George Ezra's 'Pretty Shiny People' and Bastille's 'Pompeii.' This has been a fun way to develop our understanding and retrieval skills with a range of texts. 
 

Highlight of a foundation subject

Within our PSHE and circle time this week, we had a visit from Nick Dux to help the children with managing their emotions and any worries around SATs. This session utilised transformative communication and encouraged the children to think about their inner monologue. We openly shared any concerns around SATs week and looked at strategies to help manage these anxieties. It ended with an activity where all children spoke about what makes them who they are and why they are important and valued irrespective of any academic achievements.

Have a lovely weekend.

Yoga Time

Year 6 have been channelling their inner zen over the last couple of weeks to learn how to quieten their minds and bodies.  We attempted some tricky poses and tried to end with some breath work and relaxation - with varying degrees of success.

Maths - Perfect Place Value

Maths this half term is consolidating Place Value understanding. The children need to have knowledge of using numbers to 10,000,000, rounding and negative number.

I wonder....?

In Year 6, we have been questioning this image to help us form a prediction of the story. Questions generated were:

I wonder who this is?
I wonder where she might be going?
What is she carrying with her?
She looks like she is hurrying along, who or what is she running from or to?

We then created a descriptive passage of writing based on the image.
