Year 6:

Class 6 has had a very busy start to the year. We have been working incredibly hard to ensure we are ready for the KS2 SATs and also our transition to secondary school. Here are some of our focuses this year:

 

Reading:

The children in Class 6 absolutely adore reading. During Children’s Book Week in October, we visited Waterstones Bookshop in town. Whilst there, we spent several hours finding out about authors and which books were currently recommended for our year group. We all chose our favourite books and came back to school with 3 bags of new books for class!

Each half term we have focused on a different class novel: ‘Skellig’, ‘Anne Frank’ and ‘Holes’. In summer term we will be reading ‘The Unforgotten Coat’ and ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’.

 

Maths:

We love maths in Class 6, especially when we are challenged with L5 and L6 work. We have a mental maths test weekly, which has helped improve the speed of our calculations. We have used ‘Peer Precision Teaching’ since September to help each other with the speed of our times tables and our number bonds (including decimals). We’re great ‘mini teachers’.

 

Drama:

In Autumn 1, our class novel was ‘Skellig’ by David Almond. We loved this novel and found it beautifully written and very emotional to read. To help us develop our understanding of the main and underlying themes, we had drama with our specialist Sarah Mills. The drama was amazing and we were able to take complete ownership of the main characters from the novel, from our point of views.

 

Science:

We have carried out numerous experiments this year in science during our topics on forces, adaptation and interdependence. We are able to plan a fair and accurate test, drawing on conclusions from the results.

Our favourite lesson was melting 5 different types of chocolate bars, and then freezing to create a new chocolate bar. It was delicious! We had to take care not to burn the chocolate, or would not have been a reversible change.

 

Clubs:

At the moment we have 2 afterschool clubs. On a Monday we have a maths club which focuses on the L6 scheme of work. This is repeated for L6 writing/reading on a Thursday.
