Year 6

Welcome back to the final term at St. Anthony's, we can't  quite believe how quickly the time has passed and it is the Summer term already! We hope you have had a wonderful Easter break and are enjoying the sunshine that has decided to finally appear! 

 

Whilst Year 6 have a challenging half-term ahead, we will be working extremely hard in school to ensure that the children leave with fantastic memories of their final year and their primary school days: there are so many things to look forward to such as our residential to Manor Adventure, our end of year trip and preparing for the KS2 production (where it will be their  turn to shine).  The children settled well last term into their homework routine and we will continue with this until SATS week (week beginning the 14th May) : Mon, reading;Tuesday, Maths; Wednesday, SPAG. 

 

Revision club will continue until SATS week, there are 3 sessions left : Tuesday 24th April,  Thursday 3rd May and Thursday 10th May. We hope that your child can attend and it will support them further with their confidence and revision. 

 

Further information for this term will be sent out shortly to you in the Year 6 Summer Curriculum Statement. 

 

Thank you again for your continued support,

 

Miss Caldwell and Miss Walker

Mrs Walker worked hard with Year 6 to make phone cases. The children selected and used a range of textiles, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities. They developed skills in using tools and equipment to perform practical tasks such as cutting, joining and finishing accurately.

We are already working on our Art project. The class are designing and making an illustrated book to read to their Reception Buddies when they start. We have researched books for younger children, authors and illustrators, interviewed Miss Griffin (our reception teacher), sketched potential characters and today we created our pattern library.  We have lots of talented artists in the class! Keep up the hard work!

Year 6 are studying the Vikings this term in History and this afternoon went on a Viking voyage. Their task was to work as a team, making strategic decisions to carry out a successful Viking voyage. Well done to our viking victors Adam and Lottie with the most points collected! 👏

Year 6 wrote about their Viking voyage they carried out yesterday. We wrote a recount including historical detail about the Viking raid on a monastery in Lindisfarne, 793 AD.  They produced some wonderful pieces of work and it was great to see their enthusiasm for including their knowledge and understanding of the Vikings so far, in their writing. Here is a great example below written by Billy. 

My First Viking Voyage

 

 

This year, I went on my first Viking Voyage. First, I chose not to take the money for a loan because I wanted the maximum amount of silver after my Viking Voyage, to make my name known to all Vikings. Next, I chose to go to Kaupang as they had the biggest trade and the most populated settlement in the country.

My ship was known by the people of our land as the name of “Dragon”, which was twenty-five metres long and took five to six months to build. I had thirty warriors and one carpenter.

I chose route one as it was direct, however we did run into a fierce storm, which damaged our ship and a danger of route two was that we had a chance of getting a fierce attack from other countries as we were near to the coast.

I then chose landing position number two, as the monks would not be able to see us, as we weren’t too close, so that ruled out landing position one. Landing position three was too far away, and I wanted the warriors to lose minimum energy on the way into the battle. Three warriors perished on the way, which left me with twenty-seven left to fight against the few, helpless monks.

Over the course of the war, we lost seven fierce men, which we buried their swords with their bodies. Blood-thirst and leg-biter were among many names of the swords, which left the remaining twenty to find monks, artefacts and, most importantly, silver coins.

We brought five hundred silver coins and many artefacts and monks back to the land. Two more men died on the way back, and I risked the dangerous sail back on the ship without getting a repair, when we ran into the storm again. I arrived back with my eighteen warriors and five hundred gold coins.

My final score was one thousand and five, which gave me the second best score. My first Viking voyage was complete and it was very successful.

Today we started our Science topic- Evolution and Inheritance. The children have been asked to bring in a family photograph for Monday's lesson. We will take a copy and return the photograph to you-thank you to those who have brought them in already!

We started to look at key vocabulary such as inheritance, variation and natural selection. To develop an understanding of the complex concept of evolution, we played the evolution game. It was tricky at first however we eventually got the hang of it and we could recognise  that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents.

On Friday afternoon Year 6 were busy working on their illustrated book plans for our Art project. We were given a selection of random words to inspire us with our stories, then chose some of our own. We then made a 'mock-up' of our final book, using a double page spread and learning about the 'gutter' when making books! The work they produced was fantastic and I am very excited to see the final products!

We had a great day on Wednesday for our school readathon! The children piled in with sleeping bags, torches, blankets and cushions to be comfy for the event! 😁 Our buddies came in to read with us and there were so many parents who came in to support the event in the afternoon! Thank you!

Year 6 have finally completed their Biographies and what a fantastic job they did! Below are a few samples of their wonderful work. I am very proud of how hard they worked to research their chosen subject and produce a great first piece of writing this year- well done! 

A Biography: Bill Gates

By Sam McCathie

 

William Henry Gates (III) was born on the 28th October 1955. He is known for being the founder and creator of Microsoft. He was born in Seattle, Washington. Bill is famous today for being one of the wealthiest men in the world.

Early Life and Family

Bill Gates was the only son of William Henry Gates (II) and Mary Maxwell Gates. The sixty-one year old is married to Melinda, and they have three children. Bill graduated from High School in 1973, surprisingly, whilst in school he was banned from using the computers as he spent too much time on them.

Bill Gates is important because, with the help of a man called Paul Allen, they invented the largest PC company in the world: Microsoft. Bill also has a secret weapon, a man you may never have heard of- Michael Larson. Larson ran Bill’s personal investment company Cascade (funded solely by Bill himself). As well as making Microsoft, Bill Gates has won a number of awards such as; the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2016) and the Satellite Special Achievement awards for outstanding contributions (1997). His net worth is $88.7 billion; Paul Allen’s is $20.6 billion and they continue earning more money day by day.

 

What is next for the Mastermind behind Microsoft?

Undoubtedly, Bill Gates will keep becoming wealthier every year. The philanthropist will probably design and create improved Microsoft software, computers and consoles with heightened technology; more features; new devices such as USBs with increased storage and more compact computers.

 

 

A Biography: Marco Asensio

By Daniel Melling

Who’s that footballer running up and down the wing? That’s Marco Asensio! Read on to find out more about this Spanish super-star.

Who is Marco Asensio?

Marco Asensio was born on the 21st January 1996 in Palma (Spain). Marco Asensio Willemsen didn’t have the smoothest of teenage years: he lost his mother at the young age of 15. Despite this tragedy, he managed to become a world-class footballer. Marco proudly represents ‘Los Blancos’ (AKA Real Madrid) as their number 20 on the left wing.

Real Madrid fans know they have a mouth-droppingly good footballer for when CR7 hangs up his boots. Aswell as playing for Real Madrid, Asensio has broken into the Spanish first team, already scoring 8 goals in just 6 games. His story inspires many children who have gone through tough times that good things can happen, if you train and believe in yourself!

A Struggle

When Asesnio was only 15 years old, his mum lost a long battle with cancer. He was heart-broken at this point in his life, he even considered not becoming a footballer, which would have been a waste of his talent. Thankfully, he decided to follow his dreams and take the opportunity gifted to him by Mallorca FC.

His career so far

Marco Asensio made his football debut in the Summer of 2013 for Mallorca FC. Soon after, Barcelona and Real Madrid both sent over scouts to try and find out more about the wonder-kid. Asensio scored his first goal of his career on the 16th March 2014 during a 2-0 win over Tenerife. When the 24th November came around, Real Madrid had a €3.9 million bid accepted: Marco became a Real Madrid player.

Shortly after, he was sent out on a 1 year loan to RCD Espanol but since then he has become a Real madrid starter, picking up 2 champion league winner medals and 1 La Liga on the way! Asensio scored his first ever goal f the 2017/18 campaign through a 25 yard scrceamer vs Barcelona securing them a 3-1 win. Recently Asensio was called up for the World Cup 2018 in Russia.

Life off the pitch

Believe it or not, Marco Asensio’s father was a pro-footballer as well as playing in the same position as him. Marco has a strong relationship with his father and he was his biggest motivation to train, after his mum passed away. Marco admitted it was hard to leave Mallorca FC but he had always dreamed of playing for Real Madrid.

A Biography: Jessica Ennis-Hill

By Rosie Swinnerton

 

Jessica Ennis-Hill is perhaps one of the most famous heptathletes in Britain. She was born in Sheffield on the 28th January 1986. The talented, determined runner is 31 years of age now and she is already celebrating retiring from her successful career.

Early Life

Jessica attended many athletics camps when she was still a budding athlete. She was a competitive, ambitious athlete who was always aiming high. She wanted to develop her athletic talent, so she began to compete. In 2004, she competed in Bendigo, participating in the 100m hurdles and high jump. After this successful competition, she carried on training and persevering.

A Rising Star

Jessica competed in the world championships (Berlin, 2009). She won the heptathlon, finally achieving her dream victory of Gold! Then, in 2011, she competed in Daegu in the heptathlon. Each time Jessica performed, everyone could tell she was a rising star!

Olympic Games

In 2012, Jessica went to the Olympics and competed (with great determination) in the heptathlon. She achieved another victorious gold medal and she also holds the title for the British National record holder for this hard, enjoyable event. Jessica is additionally the former world record holder in the 100m hurdles. In 2016, she attended the Rio De Janeiro Olympics, competing in the heptathlon again. On this occasion, she was awarded a silver medal; this was a huge disappointment for her. The tough competition had lots of tough courses that Jessica was hoping to overcome.

Retirement

Jessica retired in 2016: now she concentrates on looking after her two young children. However, the married mother of two still likes to present the athletics on TV. When Jessica competed she would always tell herself “The only one who can tell you you can’t win is you, and don’t listen!”

A Biography: Chris Riddell

By Tomas Rhodes

 

Christ Riddell’s imaginative works and creations, books and illustrations inspire thousands of doodlers, including me, across the globe…

Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1962, Chris is a children’s illustrator and occasional author of children’s books. His unique, distinctive drawing style is both influential and appealing.

A Big Bang!

Aged 3, Chris (who is now 55 years old) moved from Cape Town to England: his parents disagreed with Apartheid. He attended Brighton University, where one of his teachers was none other than Raymond Briggs, the author and illustrator of Fungus The Bogey Man. Chris then studied illustration and created a string of excellent books.

Suckerpunch!

In February 2012, Chris’ brother, who was a teacher, died. Chris and his wife Joanne Burroughes live together with their three children in Brighton, where Chris began his journey as an illustrator.

Publications

 Chris Riddell’s books, which he creates to entertain his fans, have won many awards including three Nestle book Prizes. He has worked collaboratively with Paul Stewart, illustrating The Edge Chronicles. He then wrote ‘Ottoline, the Yellow Cat’ and ‘Goth Girl’.

 

A Biography: Neil Armstrong

By Laurence Richardson

 

Neil Armstrong was born on the 5th August 1930 in Ohio, USA. His jobs included an astronaut, a professor and an engineer. People refer to him as being one of the most famous astronauts of all time: he was the first man to walk on the moon!

Early life

As a child, Neil attended his local boy scouts. He enrolled at Purdue University as a young man, studying aeronautical engineering. In 1949 (when he was only 19 years old) he was called up to fight in the long, intense Korean war. His plane was shot down by an enemy soldier, luckily, Neil managed to stay alive.

NASA Career

In 1962, Neil joined NASA. Just seven years after, he was chosen for the infamous space mission Apollo 11.

On the Moon

On the 16th July 1969, he blasted off at Cape Canaveral (Orlando, Florida) and became a household name: millions of people watched the historic event on live television. He landed on the moon on 20th July 1969 as Mission Commander. His return journey took a further four days flying home, he landed in the Pacific Ocean and swam home to the US.

Life after NASA

Following his marvellous career with NASA, he returned to Purdue University and taught younger people aeronautical engineering. After a long, exciting life, Neil sadly died (aged 82) on the 25th August 2012 after undergoing heart surgery.

A Biography: Nelson Mandela

By Henry Hunt

Nelson was born on July 18th 1918 in Transkei, South Africa. Was Nelson actually his birth name? No! In fact, his real name is Rolihlala, which means ‘trouble-maker’. He is mostly known for his bravery and courage to fighting for equality for black people in South Africa.

 

Early Life

Nelson attended Fort Hare Missionary College, however he was expelled for organising a strike against the white rule of the college. The black community and neighbourhood were extremely poor in comparison, this made him determined to fix a racially divided country. Sadly, his dad passed away when he was only 12 years old.

 

A Determined Man

He served 27 years in prison for actively fighting for racial equality. He was imprisoned on Robben Island and then later transferred to two other South African prisons. Mandela was so determined, he just kept going.

 

Awards

Nelson Mandela has been awarded over 250 awards, including the Nobel peace prize. He also presented South Africa’s Rugby World Cup in 1995.

 

The day the world mourned

Unfortunately, Nelson Mandela died in 2012. His death brought devastation to people all over the world. He is considered an icon by many people and this brings comfort to the Mandela family. His courage was tested throughout many times in his life; his story will be told for many years to come. Endless authors have written biographies and stories about Nelson Mandela and the Apartheid including Journey to Jo’berg by Beverly Naidoo. Too many young people today revere celebrities who may be remembered for a long time, but, in my mind, Nelson Mandela is a name that will live on for generations to come.

We explored Shakespeare's Macbeth this week through various ways: reading narratives and a comic strip version, through film, script and finally writing our own 60 second Shakespeare play scripts in groups. Whilst it is not the most festive of plays, the class are keen to perform theirs using our green screen next week!

Year 6 have been working extremely hard preparing a film to educate others about staying safe online. I am sure you will agree that they have done a fantastic job!

What a fabulous morning Year 6 had with poet Paul Delaney! The children put on their creative thinking hats to consider how the passing of time can be seen. The children are going to finish their poems off and perform to see who will be chosen to represent our school at the Poetry Festival after half term.

Wow! Here is a selection of some of the fantastic poems the children have written and illustrated in response to The Listeners by Walter de la Mare. We used the original poem to create the same, spooky imagery and atmosphere and followed a similar rhythm. A little on the creepy side due to our recent class reads, but brilliantly written! Well done Year 6!

Year 6 were mixing Science and Art on Friday to explore the components of blood and their functions. The class enjoyed making a bit of a mess whilst creating a blood smoothie using the following ingredients: marshmallows (WBC), strawberries (RBC), sprinkles (platelets) and pineapple juice (plasma). We wrote a Hailku poem about blood and its components and then created our own versions of magnified blood, inspired by artist Andrew Mason's painting.

Science and Art: all about the heart! Year 6 were learning about the heart this afternoon and in pairs attempted their own anatomically correct heart, which was not an easy task! They did extremely well and the vocabulary they were using whilst creating their sculpture was very impressive!
