Production

Here is the script for the school production. It also includes the song lyrics if you would like to practise them at home.

This half term, Year 6 have completed their ‘Explorers’ Geography unit, focusing on the UK and Europe. We have discussed and located the 7 continents, various countries of Europe, capital cities of countries in Europe, as well as rivers and mountains across Europe, The children should now be able to explain the differences between physical and human geography! We have learnt navigational skills to direct ourselves around Europe (using the eight compass points), planning our own journeys where we would like to go travelling in Europe (using google maps) and producing amazing leaflets about a chosen country in addition to our homework projects. We have a great Europe display soon to be up in our classroom showcasing all of our hard work.
European Homework Project

In the summer term children were asked to prepare a presentation about a European country of their choosing and share them with the class. As well as having some great work on display in class some children shared their work on Power-point and you can view their impressive efforts here.

On Friday 30th April Year 6 went running! All children in the school (and Mr Keen and staff) completed the Golden Mile to help support a nationwide awareness campaign for the benefits of exercise to our mental health. All children gave it a really good go but Florence came home in first place in an amazing time of 7 minutes 32 seconds with Kodee just behind in 7 minutes 34 seconds. Well done to those two and to everyone for taking part.

Florence – ‘Physical exercise is great for your mental health because it feels so good once you’ve finished. It makes you feel like you’ve accomplished and achieved something; it also helps you forget about your troubles.’

Kodee – ‘Participating in sport can help you a lot mentally (when running, playing football, tennis etc). It will take your mind off it and when you achieve, it feels amazing!’

Courage

We started the term thinking about bravery and courage. This artwork and poetry is on display outside our classroom.

Heart Home Learning

Here is a selection of our incredible home learning on The Heart:

Dissecting a Pig's Heart

We were lucky enough to dissect a real pig's heart to help our science topic. It was useful to really see the different areas and features we had been learning about. Enjoy our slightly gory photos...if you dare!

HAPPY

For Open Day, we made a video of us signing - that's right, signing, to Happy by Pharell Williams.

Halloween picture

A fantastic effort from all in Year 6

Peace Doves

Peace is the new Value of the Month. As part of our thinking about peace, we discussed how we could bring peace to our school, our homes and our world. These peace doves were inspired by a quote from Hiroshima survivor Sadako Sasaki: "I will write "peace" on your wings, and you will fly all over the world"

Peace Spirals

Take a look at our Peace Spirals. Writing spirals like this is a wellbeing activity which is soothing and peaceful. After useful discussion, we decided on which words to include. The end result is beautiful!

Peace Doves

In Year 6, we discussed how we could bring peace to our class, our homes and our world. We made promised to ourselves and wrote them on these doves which symbolize peace.

French Song - Quelle heure est-il?

As part of learning about how to tell the time in French, we have learned this song. Due to Covid, only half the class are able to sing at one time. With that in mind, we recorded it twice with each half of the class having chance to sing both verses. Nous espérons que vous apprécierez notre chanson!

Percussion
In music lessons, we have been learning more about body percussion and pattern. We learned a pattern and then came up with one together. These are the 'instructions' we used and links to the songs:

Don't Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin 
Think by Aretha Franklin

Enjoy trying these at home. Choose a song and make up your own rythmn pattern. I would LOVE to see them!
