Maths Investigation Morning
A murder was solved in Year 6 during our maths investigations and the children were excellent mathematicians/detectives! The children solved various mathematical problems to eliminate suspects and eventually find the murderer. They used skills in sequencing, algebra, symmetry and coordinates to find answer the questions. Everyone (including some parents and visitors) worked very hard!
Today Year 6 children had a Zumba session with Gemma from the School Sports Partnership. They built up their Zumba moves to a tune and were eventually able to put them altogether in a routine. Everyone worked extremely hard and thoroughly enjoyed the session. Some children said they would like to try it outside of school.
On Friday 5th April, Year 6 went to Nissan in Washington for the Monozukuri Caravan. This was a day filled with problem solving tasks and teamwork. The children learned about assembly lines and different jobs within Nissan and they also had a tour around the training workshop.
They all thoroughly enjoyed the day and many said they would like to work for Nissan in the future.
St Cuthbert’s Day Celebrations
Wednesday 20th March is St. Cuthbert’s Day and to celebrate, we had family liturgies in class, mass with the parish and a shared table with parents and grandparents in the afternoon. Everyone enjoyed their day.
On Wednesday 13th March year 6 had a visit from Destination Judo. After a short warm-up, the children were shown how to do a throw and a hold-down. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session and worked well in their pairs.
World Book Day
In Year 6 we listened to and read the poem ‘Hiawatha’ by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. We only looked at Hiawatha’s Childhood as it is such a long poem. After hearing the poem, we thought about the pictures and thoughts that it created in our minds and drew an illustration of this. On World Book Day, we created an idea board with thoughts, explanations and information about the poem, along with our own version of a verse. Mrs Garrity also challenged us in a competition to see who could name 31 books with different items in them such as a kiss, a knife, made up words, an aeroplane and some cheese. Thirteen of us achieved full marks and so three were drawn from the hat as winners – Amelie, Aoife and Joseph. They each received a prize.’
Holocaust Memorial Day
On Tuesday 29th January, Year 6 commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day with an assembly for Year 5 and parents.
They respectfully describe the Holocaust and the effect of being ‘Torn from home’ had on children at the time. They also recalled events from the life of Anne Frank. While they learned about the Holocaust, Year 6 began to understand the horror and sadness this event caused.
KS2 SATs Evening Presentation (January 28th)
Year 6 children had a treat today (24th Jan) when Captain Chemistry came in to help them learn about the circulatory system. They listened to their own heart with a stethoscope, used a pulse counter and then got to touch a real cow’s heart and pig’s lungs! They were all very brave!
UNICEF Rights Respecting
Some of our Year 6 pupils have been sharing liturgies with Reception Class. Over the last two weeks (end of November) their theme has been respect and they have collected their prayers and smiles in connection with the UNICEF Rights Respecting award.
Today (18th Oct) the Year 6 children set up their microorganisms investigation. They are finding out which conditions are best to grow mould.
On Tuesday (2nd October) the Year 6 children presented their ‘All About Hawkhirst’ presentation to their parents.
They had an exciting and adventurous week which was filled with activity and fun. They also learned lots of new songs from the campfire on the first night.
