Year 6

Summer Term 2 - Eco-Schools

In Year 6, we are focusing on the topic of ‘Water’

Water is our most important natural resource but we are currently experiencing a crisis with local water supplies across the world.  Despite progress, billions of people still lack water and sanitation services.

In this unit, we are going to cover a wide range of issues from how to save water at home and in school as well as why developing countries have limited access to clean and safe water.

Our year 6 project focus will be on the school pond where we will be investigating the habitats, cleaning it out and also making water filters from natural materials.

If anyone has any experience in cleaning out ponds and would like to give us a hand please get in touch with school.

 

 

Summer Term 1 - Yorkshire and The Sunshine State

 

Due to the lockdown, a number of our topics have had to be moved around so we have a mixture of different things happening during this first half term.

In Science, we will finish our living things unit, we will be searching for mini beasts in the school grounds and in the pond. We will then move onto electricity and link this to building mechanical fairground rides within DT.

In Geography, we will learn about the counties of the UK with a particular focus on the human and physical features of Yorkshire. We will also be looking at the types of settlement, land use and economic activity that can be found in Yorkshire.

In PSHE, we will look at relationships and changes that happen to us during puberty. We will be reading the book Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo and link this to writing adventure stories about being stranded on a desert island. We will also look at the art work of the Japanese artist, Hokusai.

Spring Term 2 - The Sunshine State

This half term, our next topic is The Sunshine State, which is linked to our geography theme. In Geography, we will be studying the continent of North America and comparing and contrasting countries within North America. Our Science theme becomes electricity and circuits, and we will be making fairground rides in DT using an electrical circuit. We will continue to have specialist teaching in music, enhancing our skills on the ukulele and PE, hopefully making use of the better weather! It’s going to be fun!

Spring Term 2021 - 6G - Easter Egg Hunt

The pupils had to find letters on pictures hidden round the school grounds. When re-arranged they formed an easter message. The successful pupils had their name put in a hat to see who would win an Easter egg. (Only pupils donating £1 to the PTA could enter the draw.)
There was also a scavenging hunt to follow.

SPRING TERM 1 - Invade, Raid, Stayed! The Vikings!

 

In Spring 1, Year 6 will be studying the Vikings. We will learn who they were and where they settled; where they travelled and what were the similarities and differences between Viking and Ancient Greek warfare. In Science we are looking at Evolution and Inheritance, including the exciting task of designing our own dogs! In Computing we are creating Travel Guides using Google maps, snip, print screen, and hyperlinks and in RE we are deepening our understanding of Judaism.

smileyA fantastic Autumn term!laugh

Well done to all the Year 6 children for being brilliant over this Autumn term. We have all settled into a new way of working in school and everyone has been brilliant.

 

There is no homework over the Christmas holidays (no CGP English or maths or any spellings) but please can children still continue to read and complete their reading record for when we return in January.

 

New spellings will be given out on Monday 4th January when we return.

 

If you haven't looked at the things we've done this Autumn, please look below and also visit the Science, Design Technology and other curriculum pages to see what we have been doing in our lessons.

 

Have a wonderful, restful Christmas.

 

The Year 6 Team.

Autumn 2020 Year 6 Remembrance

Still image for this video
We went across to the memorial in Nunroyd Park where we laid a wreath, read some poems, and thought about the sacrifices which people have made. Many of us expressed what was important for us, but the loud traffic and poor microphone made these thoughts difficult to record. It was a very moving occasion.
