Year 6

How to get help while school is closed

How to get help while school is closed 1

Welcome to year 6

 

The year 6 team for 2019/20 consists of Mr Archer and Mrs Chadwick (6N), Mr Whitehouse (6M) and our teaching assistants Mrs Dhami (6M) and Mrs Diethrich (6N).

 

 

The new focus for the children will be intrepid explorers.  During this topic, they will look closely at Michael Morpurgo's adventure story, Kensuke's Kingdom.  The children will also find out about a range of famous explorers (e.g. Neil Armstrong, Christopher Columbus, Robert Falcon-Scott) and their adventures. They will look closely at Sir Ernest Shackleton and his daring attempt to be the first person to walk across the Antarctic continent.

That's one small step for man,

One giant leap for mankind.

Year 6 weekly home learning

 

First and foremost, we hope that everyone is keeping safe and well at home whilst also adhering to the Government's guidance on social distancing and staying indoors.

 

We have collated home learning activities for the children to complete.  The writing task is progressive and we hope that all children work through the tasks one step at a time.  This will support the children as they build up to a final piece of extended writing.

 

We have also included some tasks to complete on Education City.  Children just need to log into their accounts and the tasks (5 English tasks, 5 maths tasks and 2 science tasks) will be ready for them to read through and complete.  These tasks will go live on the website from Monday until Sunday of the same week.  Teachers will be reviewing the tasks regularly to ensure that they are completed.

November 2019 - First aid training

The children in year 6 enjoyed learning about basic first aid with the help and support of the St John's ambulance team.  They were able to perform a primary survey on injured friends and place them into the recovery position.  The children also had fun whilst learning how to place a bandage on an injury.
