Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome to Year 6’s class page, here you will find all of the interesting topics and themes we cover in our class with Miss Howard.

Autumn Term

In English this term we have covered two very interesting books! The first was Holes by Louis Sachar. The children wrote letters pretending to be a child in Camp Green Lake! Our second book has had the children gripped to their seats, Wild Boy, set in London, 1841! The story of a boy covered in hair, raised as a monster, condemned to life in a travelling freak show. A boy with an extraordinary power of observation and detection. A boy accused of murder; on the run; hungry for the truth. The children composed their very own narratives by candlelight describing the life of a β€˜freak’ in Victorian London!

Β 

This term in Science we have been learning all about our bodies and circulatory system. Beginning with some Blood Smoothies! We also enjoyed dissecting hearts to understand how blood transport through our main organs and we demonstrated a visual representation of how our blood moves through our body! This term has been filled with fantastic experiments that help us gain the knowledge we need to understand the human body!Β 

Spring Term

This term we have had lots of fun through our blended learning. children have been working really hard both at school and at home! In art we have been looking at a very famous artist from Middlesbrough, Mackenzie Thorpe. The children produced some fantastic work!

During Mental Health Awareness Week, we focused on expressing ourselves! The children recorded themselves doing something that made them feel good inside. We received a lot of time lapsed videos including art work!

 

In Science the children have been looking at famous historical inventors/engineers. We loved find out lots of fun and quirky facts about people who have helped shape our lives into how we live today.

In PSHE we have been focusing on things we are thankful for. During this unfamiliar pandemic, we have all been thinking about why we should be thankful and looking at our lives with a positive outlook!
