Welcome to 6M's class page!
We hope you enjoy finding out what we've
been doing in class!
Autumn Term 2017
In Autumn 1 our topic will be World War 2, a real favourite within school – it is linked to a local history study where we will learn about how the industrial estate at Yeadon Airport was used to build Lancaster bombers, how Thwaites Mill made putty to help with the war effort and the visit of Winston Churchill to Leeds. We will make shelters in DT and we will be learning about light in our Science topic linked to the blackout. In Music we will learn WW2 songs and link this to remembrance in November.
In Autumn 2 we will be learning about The Vikings! We are excited to find out what made them such good warriors, where they came from and how they travelled to Britain. We will research what The Vikings ate and will have a Viking feast at the end of the topic which links
with our DT. In Science, we will learn about animals and humans.
Viking Workshop 9.11.17
We had a great day learning about the Vikings thanks to the people from Jorvick Viking Centre. We learnt about what Viking homes were like and we looked at and handled artefacts. We listened to Viking Sagas and helped act them out - this was really fun! Finally, we also took part in Viking battle training and made Shield walls to help us in battle!

Year 6 Leavers Prom!
What a fantastic way to end a wonderful 4 years! Everyone looked fabulous at the Prom and we all had a great evening dancing away (and taking selfie's!).
All of the staff at Westfield have loved teaching such a wonderful year group and it has been a pleasure to see them work so hard, grow and mature. They are all ready to move on to High School and we wish them lots of luck and hope they find great success there!
You will be missed Year 6! Come and visit us soon!

We had a fantastic day at a law firm in Leeds on Friday. We took part in an Enterprise Day where we worked with groups of children from lots of different schools across Leeds to plan a debate. The day ended with a nerve-racking debate held in a huge board room where the children were judged by solicitors for how persuasive they had been. Everyone did a super job and the volunteers were very impressed with the children's confidence - well done Enterprise team!
Debating in English 7.2.17
In English, we have been learning about how to carry out a successful debate. After gathering lots of research on our chosen topic, today we debated the motion: 'Should Britain be friends with Donald Trump?' The debate was a huge success as everyone contributed different reasons for and against this motion, whilst respecting differing views. We could have gone on for hours - it was brilliant to be part of!
Dream tree house competition WINNER! 27.1.17
We have had some fantastic news this week. Isabelle W has won the Manning Stainton 'Design your dream tree house' competition. Over 500 applicants entered this competition so we are extremely proud of Isabelle! She has won an iPad Air for herself and £500 for school which we will put towards our current fund-raising project: redesigning the school bungalow to use as extra teaching space. A huge well done to Isabelle - she was absolutely thrilled!!
Maths Week 3.1.17
We have had a fantastic first week back after Christmas carrying out lots of activities linked to Maths. Have a look at our photos below of all the activities we have done. It's been great fun!
