Year 6

Welcome to our Year 6 class page!

 

I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer and are refreshed and ready for a brand new school year! It has been a pleasure getting to know our new Year 6 class over the last few days and Miss Walker and myself have a feeling we are going to have a fantastic year already. Please pop by to our class page, which we update regularly, to follow our learning journey through our final year at St. Anthony's.  

 

Whilst year 6 is a very challenging year and comes with many responsibilities and changes, it is also one of the most exciting and fun : we have a great deal to look forward to!  More information will be sent out in the Autumn curriculum statement shortly and I look forward to meeting you all soon,

We started our History topic for this term: Were the Vikings always vicious and victorious? Year 6 were busy looking at popular views of the Vikings and learned a huge amount about Viking longships thanks to hot-seating Sven the captured Viking!

We have been looking at various biographies over the last few lessons in English. This week we explored the life of Ole Kirk Kristiansen- the inventor of Lego. We watched a biopic called 'The Story of Lego' and researched more about Ole's life. We challenged pupils to create something out of 10 pieces of lego one they had completed their work.

Year 6 enjoyed putting Mr Metcalf in the hot-seat today! We interviewed him to gather information in order to write his biography. Year 6 were fantastic and asked excellent open and closed questions to get all the information we needed! Well done!

In Art and Design we have been exploring the human form and proportion. The class were silent in concentration when asked to create observational sketches of our mannequins! We discussed using basic shapes, and fractions to develop a sketch before adding detail. We did some blind drawing to warm up too- it also reminded us of the one most important thing to remember when drawing anything : to look at what we are drawing! We learned how to improve and help others improve by giving and receiving effective feedback and not giving up!

Year 6 explored Charles Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection in our Science lesson this morning. Whilst it is a challenging concept, the class demonstrated a great understanding of how animals including humans, adapt over time to their surroundings. We read a story called Moth- which explains the evolution of the peppered moth and played a game which helped us to understand natural selection and the survival of the fittest!

To mark Remembrance Day, Year 6 used their inference skills to predict what happened in 'War Story'. They looked at various pieces of evidence and made their predictions before watching and listening to a War Veteran's personal story.

Year 6 enjoyed a morning with Peter, our visitor, who came in to talk to them about equality and diversity. They learned a huge amount from him and it was a great way to start anti-bullying week. Well done also to Amelia, Joe, Tom and Emma who led a collective worship with the theme ' We choose respect.'

As part of other faith's week, Year 6 learned about Rosh Hashanah. It is the Jewish New Year celebration. It is a custom to eat apples dipped in honey to mark a sweet and good new year - after making Rosh Hashanah cards we enjoyed a little taste!
