Year 6 News
WELCOME BACK YEAR 6!
It is great to have two Year 6 bubbles back at school and we have been working hard and having fun each day.
We are reading the book ‘Boy 87’ about a boy who has to leave his family and travel to Europe alone, just like many young people in some parts of the world today.
We are also enjoying playing cricket and doing our Daily Mile challenge every day.
Today we have created our own chalk patterns based on Ethiopian art linked to ‘Boy 87.’
This week we are doing lots of fun Science experiments.
Check out the pictures below…
Making water walk!
Socially distant PE is tricky but we had fun doing athletics today.
Speed bounce challenge…
One touch football…
Power of Reading
Year 6 have been trialling a new way of learning, based on the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education’s (CLPE) Power of Reading project. Our children have focused on two books so far, Francesca Sanna’s The Journey, which tells a story about a family of refugees who are forced to leave their war-torn country in order to find safety in a new place. The children produced some outstanding work and understood the terribly unfortunate situation that many people face each day around the world.
Linking literacy to our topic, environmental issues, we are now learning all about varmints(!) using the text Varmints by Helen Ward and Mark Craste. Below you will find some pictures of our inference activity, where we had to imagine and draw what we thought a varmint might look like, based solely on a dictionary definition. Keep checking back to see more amazing images!
