Welcome to Team 6!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
Year 6 is a very important year in education for these children. Not only do they have SATs, but it is their final year at primary and so we spend time getting them secondary ready. We have really high expectations and look forward to the children rising to challenge and striving to reach their potential.
On Wednesday 11th April, Ben took part in the Rotary Young Speakers event. Along with 8 other children from local schools, he spoke about something important or of interest to him. IT was a great evening with lots of great talks from everyone involved. Click on the link to find out what Ben spoke about. Well done! You were fab!
As part of National Science week, everyone in the school had the opportunity to attend the 'Silly Science' Workshop. They looked at a range of scientific phenomena and had great fun.
Survival Topic: Heart and Lungs
We have been loving our science work on the Heart and Lungs. It was great to get a look at a real life heart and lungs. Everyone had a look and could identify different sections of the heart and also spotted branches of the lungs (trachea, bronchi and bronchioles). We have thought about how our heart and lungs work and how different conditions can affect them. What a fab topic!!!
Warning Zone and E-Safety
We have been learning about mountains and mountain ranges of world by locating them and comparing them. We have thought about habitats in the mountain regions and how tourism affects them as well. It has also been great fun creating our own mountain range and mountains both in class and at home.
We really enjoyed our African Drumming session this week. Everybody joined in brilliantly and came back to the classroom tapping away. "Can we do this every week?" has been mentioned a few times?
Cannock Chase Museum- WW2 Trip
We had a great time at Cannock Chase Museum, finding out all about what life was like during WW2. The children were able to learn about air raids and experienced what it might have been like. They also looked at artefacts, worked out who certain objects and belongings might belong to and then finally re-enacted life as an evacuee. We also learnt about rationing. This began our topic week brilliantly. Take a peek at our Topic page to see what we have been up to.
Every now and again, it is really important to challenge our brains and test our thinking. Today, we have been looking at the problem below. We have tried to spot patterns and explain and reason about our findings. Have a go at home. See what you can find out.
We have had a good week with our learning this week, trying out new things and reminding ourselves of our prior learning. We have also worked hard to write our own 'Journey Tale' linking to our literacy unit. We topped the week off with a mini-dodgeball tournament which was great fun. Thanks Team 6!
