Year 6 RG

Welcome to class 6RG!

 

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...

World Book Day

 

Today we celebrated World Book Day with a special Oscars theme. We came to school dressed in our very best outfits and headed straight to an Oscars after party where we walked down a red carpet and had lots of photographs taken. In Year 6 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 great day 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 2022

 

As part of Internet Safety Day (8.2.22) we looked at the importance of staying safe online when gaming. We discussed different scenarios before creating our very own posters providing useful advice to people put under pressure as well as to people putting others under pressure during online games. 

Marvellous Maths- The Great Proportional Bake Off!

 

In Maths we have been solving problems involving proportion. To complete this unit we all took part in ‘The Great Proportional Bake Off!’ We were split into 3 groups- Cakes, Pies and Cookies and were each given problems to solve based on the recipes given. We even ended with a ‘Show Stopper Challenge’ where we had to work out how the recipe had changed and for how many people it would serve. Marvellous maths skills were shown throughout the lesson, Prue and Paul would be proud! 

Science- Sugar Content Investigation 

 

As part of our Science topic we have been investigating the sugar content in different drinks. We made our predictions before weighing the sugar content in our chosen drinks. It goes without saying that we were rather shocked by some of the results!

The Boy at the Back of the Class- Onjali Q. Rauf

Our class novel for this term is 'The Boy at the Back of the Class,' which is about a young refugee boy named Ahmet, who has recently moved to the United Kingdom from Syria. Unfortunately, he has not received a warm welcome from some staff, parents and children. We decided to write letters of persuasion to the Home Secretary, to encourage her to provide more support for refugees like Ahmet. Take a look at some of our fabulous writing... 

 

Superb Science... Making Model Samples of Blood

 

As part of our work on the circulatory system, we have been learning about how blood is essential for good health by making a model of a sample of blood. These are the steps we followed:

 

1. Firstly, we added water and two drops of yellow food colouring to a bottle to represent plasma, which is mostly water absorbed in the intestines from what we eat and drink. We added a sprinkle of salt to the liquid to represent the minerals found in our plasma.

2. Next we looked at red blood cells, which carry oxygen all around our body. They are the most plentiful type of cell in blood and that is why the blood is red. To represent this, we added cheerios with red food colouring and added it to the plasma.

3. To represent the white blood cells, we added some white marshmallows to the sample (this helps to fight infections). White blood cells are bigger than red blood cells and there are not too many of these found in our blood when we are healthy but once we get sick, our body makes more to protect us.

4. To represent the platelets found in our blood, we added raisins to the sample to represent the tiny round cells that will stop us bleeding if we get cut. 

 

At each stage of the experiment we also compared our items to the magnified images of the real items. 

Christmas Fun!

 

During Christmas week, we dressed in our festive jumpers and enjoyed a movie afternoon with hot chocolate and biscuits!


We hope everybody has a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New YearπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽ

Halloween 

 

We had a fun-filled day for Halloween in 6RG! We dressed up in our best scary outfits, carved pumpkins and created some brilliant Halloween crafts. Take a look at this all in action...

Hello Yellow 2021

 

Look at us all dressed up to celebrate Hello Yellow Day! We discussed mental health and the importance of being able to express our feelings and emotions. 

The Battle of the Beaks!

 

As part of our Evolution and Inheritance topic, we looked at how adaptation may lead to inheritance in our 'Battle of the Beaks' investigation. We identified that certain types of food are suited to different beak shapes, depending on the environment in which the birds live. We now know that if birds are struggling to find a source of food, this can put them at risk of extinction.

Ruby's Worry 

During PHSCE week, we completed activities on the picture book ‘Ruby’s Worry’ by Tom Percival. We had the opportunity to discuss our worries and find ways to deal with them. We created worry jars, which included worries we have and then we created Worry-Buster Guides to find ways to shrink our worries.
