Year 6J Class St. John

Roots To Food is one of the best workshops the children participate in each year. All of Year 6 remembered the skills they had learnt previously. They were able to work as a team to create chicken teriyaki - it was absolutely delicious! Well done Year 6! 

Our topic this half term in Science is Our Bodies we will be learning how our body functions and what we can do to keep ourselves extra fit and healthy. We made this model of he heart to show how the blood pumps around the body. Year 6 worked as a team to make sure the model was air tight so that the blood was able to travel from one bottle to another. 

Dear Parents and children,

African Drumming Workshop

As we are celebrating Black History Month the children took part in an African drumming workshop. This consisted of learning a song and being able to play a rhythm on a drum. Some children were really courageous and performed by themselves. Well done Year 6!

This week we took part in a NumberFit Maths challenge. Not only did the children have to complete a variety of maths puzzles and challenges they also had to complete physical challenges. All the children worked in their groups to complete all the challenges successfully. Well done Year 6! 

Making Viking Longboats

Our History topic for this half term is Rule Britannia. Over the past few weeks we have been looking at the Vikings. This week the children had the chance to make their own 3D Viking Longship. They worked successfully in groups to make their own ship.

Reading to KS1 and EYFS

Every Friday afternoon Year 6 will be going to read to EYFS and Reception. Each week they will swap classes so they have the chance to read to all the year groups. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this activity - what a lovely way to end the week! 

Helping to measure the EYFS playground!

A group of children from Year 6 got to help Mr Mc Carthy measure the EYFS playground as they will be getting some new furniture. They had to work as a team to measure each section to see what would fit where. Well done for working so successfully in a team! 

Evolution and Inheritance

This half term our Science topic is Evolution and Inheritance. Some of the children went around the playground and hide moths of different size and colour. The rest of the class then had to see which were the easiest to find. The children worked fantastically as a team using their excellent communication skills. Well done Year 6! 

Hello and welcome back to the new school year! Myself and Mrs O'Neill will be supporting Year 6 this year. We have lots of fun learning planned and we can't wait to see the children grow and flourish throughout the year. All homework will be set on Microsoft Teams. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!
