Year 6 Overview 2021-22

Term 3

In Term 3, Year 6 are going to be investigating the first Sustainable Development Goal of No Poverty. The focus of our learning will be about how Science can be used to give shelter, warmth, light and water. Therefore, our ambition is to produce a homeless kit for someone in the UK or Ethiopia. Alongside this, our writing will be based on the book 'The Garbage King' which tells the story of two boys from diverse economical backgrounds and their adventures in the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa. Please check our Enquiry E-Book and class page for updates on our fantastic learning!

No Pens Day! Article 13: Sharing Thoughts Freely

On our No Pens Day in Term 3, we had lots of fun revisiting the four strands of oracy and discussing why it is important to have confidence when speaking and communicating clearly. When being a writer, we looked at our brand new target, cohesion within paragraphs, explored pronouns and discussed the importance of clear communication within a written text. When being mathematicians, we explored equivalent measurements to prepare for soup making! When being a reader, we used our voices to echo read our text, answer questions and make predictions about what may happen next. We also played a range of games which focussed on each strand of oracy! 

Gymnastics - Article 24: Health, Water, Food, Environment 

In Term 3 indoor PE, we are doing gymnastics with Mr Gill. In our first session, we learnt about points of contact and static positions. We were challenged to make static positions with 3, 4 and even 7 points of contact to the floor. Then, we had to work collaboratively in our teams to create an object such as the Eiffel Tower and a motorbike with our bodies using static positions. Miss O'Sullivan had to guess what we were! 

Term 2

This term, Year 6 will be continuing our enquiry "How are decisions overturned?" through exploring who makes rules in modern day and what our rights mean. As change-makers, we will consider the issues we would like to change and create a campaign to raise awareness of what we feel passionate about. 

 

Times Table Champion of Champions! - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

We would like to say a MASSIVE congratualtions to our wonderful classmate, Ellie, for winning the Year 6 times table competition and becoming the Champion of Champions! Because of Ellie's hard work and determination, we were awarded with a class party and were allowed to bring in board games from home! We also enjoyed party food and games and so did Mr B (see if you can spot him in the photo below!).

Learning About Type 1 Diabetes - Article 28: Access to Education

We have had a wonderful afternoon finding out about Type 1 Diabetes. Our inspirational classmate, Sadie, has been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes since she was 3 and wanted to share how this affects her day-to-day life and mental health. We have learnt about blood sugar levels, the purpose of a pancreas, how devices help and support people with diabetes and how the cannual helps with inserting insulin into the body. Thank you so much Sadie and Emma for this fantastic presentation and informing us about Type 1 diabetes.  You are amazing! 

Singing Assembly! Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

Allotment Fun! Article 24: Health, Water, Food and Environment

We have had the wonderful opportunity to join Mr Evans on our fantastic allotment. We even had a go at mulching. See what we got up to below!

Space Maths Day! Article 28: Access to Education

We have had such an amazing time being mathematicians on our whole school Space Maths Day. We explored space, learned about the effects of gravity and were amazed when watching a man fall from space with a parachute. This inspired us to build our very own parchutes and test them out. We recorded our results in a result table and represented this data in bar charts. Check out our work below!

 

No Pens Day! Article 13: Sharing Thoughts Freely

On our No Pens Day, we recapped oracy and how talk helps us to learn. When being a writer, we explored the world of persuasion and looked at a variety of persuasive texts. Then, we had a class debate on the statement, 'School should start at 10am'. When being mathematicians, we explored different types of angles and how to use a protractor. We went outside and gave our learning partner instructions using angles as well as following Mr B's instructions. Check out our work below!

Angle Fun!

Odd Socks Day! Article 17: Access to Information 

To commence Anti-Bullying Week, we were asked to come in wearing an odd pair of socks to show that everyone is unique in their way! We thought about what to do if we are experiencing unkind behaviour or bullying and understood the importance of sharing kind words. We complemented eachother and thought of pledges to be kind. Take a look at our photos and work below!

Term 1

This term, Year 6 will be using their skills as historians to find out about how the Vikings made decisions and settled disputes among their communities. We're going to find out who makes rules in the modern day and what our rights mean, focusing on 'change-makers' who have stood up for their rights. Linking this to our school community, we're going to consider the issues that we would like to change and create a campaign to raise awareness of what we feel passionate about. Alongside this, our writing will be based on the book 'Viking Boy' by Tony Bradman which tells the story of a boy who faces injustice and how he seeks revenge. Please check our page for updates on our fantastic learning! 

Football Fun! Article 24: Health, Water, Food, Environment

To finish off our unit of Football, we showcased our fantastic control skills through following instructions from the Cha Cha Slide. Check it out below!

Pumpkin Carving Competition! Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts 

Well done to all of 6RO's pumpkin carving competition entries - they are all very spooktacular! A big shout out and congratulations to Annabelle who won the whole school competition and received a £10 voucher for her dentristy inspired pumpkin! 

Farmer's Week: Article 27: The right to nutritious food

In Week 6, we took part in Farmer's Week. We started by exploring what was meant by 'Farmer's market' and the term, 'Field to Fork'. We used this to help us order the stages of food production - from cow to yogurt; sow to sausage and bee to honey.

 

Next, we split into groups. One group was led by our resident gardener - Mr Evans. He taught us about how our food waste at St. Stephen's actually helps us to grow new produce which is then cooked by the school kitchen! In the other session, we were joined by visitors from The Travelling Kitchen who taught us how to make spiced vegetable cakes, flatbread dough and vegetable dhansak.

 

At the end of the day we got to taste the things Year 6 had made and share them with our parents and carers. We've had a great week being farmers and look forward to tasting more of our school-grown produce!

National Poetry Day: Article 31 - Rest, Play, Culture and Arts.

We have had such a wonderful day celebrating National Poetry Day! It started with a visiting poet, Ian Bland, coming in and amazing us with his poetry. He taught us about action and performance poetry which was great fun. We spent the day learning a poem off by heart to perform. We used actions to help us and thought carefully about how to use our oracy skills to help with the performance. We performed our poem to 4AH and enjoyed their performance too.
