Year 6 Sats Information

Team Building

Our new year 6 children have had a fantastic time playing team games. They were fantastic at working together by using great communication skills, encouraging and helping each other to complete the tasks.

SURVIVAL DAY

The children have been putting their survival skills and knowledge to the test as part of their new topic. They designed their own survival pouches, made paracord keyrings, took part in a fitness test, worked as a team to solve survival scenarios and experimented with filtering dirty water into cleaner water.

Music in Year 6

The children have had fun learning how to play a variety of tuned and untuned percussion instruments, composing and performing together to create music that depicts the changing of weather or seasons.

Design and Technology - Sewing

Our year 6 children have been learning new sewing skills to make their survival pouch designs come to life! They have chosen a suitable material, learnt how to put it together using a running stitch and have sewn on buttons and clips to make it function.

Science - Looking at fossils

Year 6 have been learning about how fossils are made and how scientists use them to provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. We also learnt about the life and career of the English paleontologist, Mary Anning.

English - Research

The children have had fun exploring different holiday destinations on the Tui website. They have been collating interesting vocabulary and phrases to use when they write their own holiday brochures.

Autumn B

WWII DAY

To start our new topic on world wars, the children took part in drama activities to experience what life might have been like at the start of the war. All the children were issued with identity cards and split off into families. They then got together to listen to 'the declaration of war' by Neville Chamberlain. 

Some of the children were evacuated to the countryside and given gas masks and learnt how to darn their socks. Some of children helped the war effort by digging for victory as part of the land army. Some other children signed up to go into the army and trained to fight while some of the older generations formed a local home guard defence unit and learnt about the German spy, Josef Jakobs.

VE Day

To round off our World War 2 topic, the children celebrated in style with a 'street style' party. We had food, drinks, flag making and singing along to Vera Lynn!

WOW DAY - Natural Disasters

To start our new topic on natural disasters, the children have had an amazing time designing and making their own volcanoes. They then exploded them using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda and observed the chemical reaction!

The children observed and investigated the difference between cells and batteries and how different batteries power a range of appliances in the home.

This term, the children have been learning about light. They have observed and investigated how light travels in straight lines, how it reflects and refracts and how the eye sees objects. They also researched the physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton, who began a series of experiments with sunlight and prisms, demonstrating that clear white light is made up of seven visible colours.
