Year 6 AW
Welcome to class 6AW!
In Year 6, we cover a broad curriculum allowing the children to explore many books, think mathematically, write creatively and most of all… enjoy their learning. Have a look at some of the amazing things we have been doing in Year 6 so far...
What an exciting week celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee👑
We have had the opportunity to explore the Queen’s life, write letters to our Majesty, study the 60s, attend our very own Beatles concert and enjoy a Jubilee afternoon tea party in school.
Take a look at some of our fun activities…
During PE, we had a bench ball tournament. We looked closely at useful skills and techniques to successfully play the game.
Red Nose Day
In order to raise money for Comic Relief, we either wore red or dressed in non-uniform. During the day, we even had a nose and spoon race🥄🔴
World Book Day
Today we celebrated World Book Day with an Oscars theme. We all arrived at school dressed in our best outfits and headed straight to an Oscars after party where we walked down a red carpet and were snapped by the paparazzi.
In class, we nominated The Boy at the Back of the Class for Best Children’s Story and created a nomination speech explaining what we enjoyed about the book and why it was up for nomination. We then made book reviews and rated the book out of 5!
Children’s Mental Health Week
We had a wonderful day on Friday promoting Mental Health by enjoying ice cream and expressing ourselves by choosing our own clothes. We had the opportunity to discuss our feelings during a talk with the Mental Health Nurse and then created stars based on the various emotions we feel.
Safer Internet Day
Today was Internet Safety Day, we looked at being safe when gaming online and discussed what we would do in difficult situations online. We then created posters giving advice to people under pressure and advice to people putting others under pressure in games.
We had a lovely game of rounders in PE this week.
Science - Sugar Investigation
In Science, we looked at the sugar content in a variety of drinks. The children were shocked to see the amount of sugar in drinks they enjoy on a daily basis.
The Boy at the Back of the Class
This term we are reading The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf.
When a new boy joins their class, a group of children try to befriend him. They soon learn that Ahmet is a refugee and has been separated from his family. None of the grown-ups seem to be able to help him, so the friends come up with a daring plan, embarking on an extraordinary adventure.
Take a look at some of our amazing writing based on this book…
Science - Blood in our Body
In Science, we looked at the cells and nutrients in our blood by making a real life sample. We used yellow water to represent the plasma, cheerios and red food colouring to represent our red blood cells, white marshmallows to represent white blood cells and raisins to represent platelets. We looked at the function of each cell and discussed how blood is essential for good health.
During Christmas week, we dressed in our jumpers, enjoyed a movie afternoon with hot chocolate and biscuits, made cards, created Excitable Edgar books and even played some Christmas games.
We hope everybody has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year🎄🎅🎁

For Children in Need, we had some amazing Pudsey Bear outfits. We also designed our very own Children in Need top.
For Halloween, we dressed up in our best outfits, carved pumpkins and created some brilliant Halloween crafts. Take a look at our fun-filled day…
