Year 6 portraits

To start this year we thought we would have a go at creating our portraits using line drawings and collage. We think they cane out rather well don't you?

Welcome to year 6 Class of 2021!

 

Over the last few days, the year 6 team have been busy getting things ready at school and we are all eagerly awaiting your return. This year as you already know there is Mrs Thompson in 6T working with Angela, Miss Haynes in 6H working with Gina, and Clare will be working across the two classes. When you arrive on Monday morning we will all be awaiting your arrival in the playground and can't wait to see you. Remember all you need to bring is a water bottle with your name written clearly on it. Please do not bring in a school bag or anything else (unless you are bringing in your pack lunch). We hope you have a relaxing final week of the holiday.

 

Your very excited year 6 team!

Below are lots of documents, PowerPoints and tests that you can do in the run up to SATs.

Each one is linked to learning we have done in class and will help you to revise for you SATs.

There is a mix of Maths, Reading and SPaG which will look at revising key concepts and then testing you on them.

There are answers where these are needed but please do not look at these until you have completed the activity.

Enjoy Year 6

 

 

 

WELCOME TO YEAR 6

We've continued our Mesopotamian Maths by exploring and designing our own ancient civilisations and have been finding perimeters, areas and making nets

First we planned our cities
Next, calculated the perimeter, area and volume
Finally we made nets and 3D scale models

Year 6 are getting stuck into our new topic of Ancient Mesopotamia! We've been exploring how this ancient civilisation impacted life today. We've especially focussed on all the inventions and discoveries they made.

We found out about cuneiform!
We even got to try it our ourselves!
We explored ancient maths!
And designed a cuneiform game of dominoes
We used our skills in BODMAS to help
Plus, we did some independent research!

This week in geography we have been looking at settlement patterns using Google Earth.

Let's give a huge 'Well Done!' to the children who competed in the Readers' Cup Competition where they came runner up.
