This week Y6 have been excited to start work in their new sketch books.  We are studying L.S Lowry, so we have been analysing city scapes and comparing different drawing

Autumn 2 Week 1 - Thornbridge Residential

Year 6 have had a wonderful start to Autumn 2. Some of us went on a 3-day residential to Thornbirdge Outdoors where we experienced canoeing, sky ropes, den building, a talent show, a night line walk and much more. We developed our confidence, team building and independence and are very proud of all that we’ve achieved. Whilst we were there, the rest of Y6 created lanterns for our annual Lantern Parade, focusing on the theme of ‘Our Heritage’. They were fantastic and the parade was another great success.

Autumn 1 Blog - Week 8

Year 6 have had an absolutely wonderful start to the year!  To begin with, the children developed their entrepreneurial minds as they researched, designed, pitched and produced a healthy snack to sell to the pupils at High Hazels Academy.  They raised awareness about the importance of a healthy balanced diet, raised money for a local charity (Food Works, Sheffield) and developed their teamwork, mathematical, presentation, persuasive writing and DT skills. 

 

After this, they were dramatically introduced to their new theme – WW2!  An air-raid simulation, followed by a mock evacuation enthused the children and gave them a sense of what it would have been like at this time.  Through reading, writing and geography, the Y6 pupils have developed their knowledge and understanding of how the war started, the importance of significant individuals (such as Anne Frank) and the impact on the UK at this time.  Next half term, we are looking forward to diving deeper into the theme of evacuation and looking at how this period of time impacted society today.

Y6 have found long multiplication tricky this week, but with high levels of effort and determination, they have made great progress and have developed their mathematical reasoning and ability to solve multiplication problems.

Autumn 1 Week 5 - Anne Frank's Diary

We have loved learning about Anne Frank in writing and reading this week. We have had the opportunity to read extracts from Anne Frank’s diary and have planned and created our own examples. We are very proud of the progress that we have made in writing this week as we are feeling much more confident with subordinate clauses.

Autumn 1 Week 4 - WW2

This week Y6 have been immersed into their new topic WW2.  After surviving an air raid the pupil, the pupils were evacuated to the countryside having only moments to decide what to pack.  We then studided extracts from Anne Frank's diary using role play to better understand her experiences.

Autumn 1 Week 3 - Enterprise Week

What a wonderful week our Y6 pupils have had! After securing an investment from the dragons, they have bought their ingredients, made their healthy products and sold them to the pupils at High Hazels Academy to encourage children to make healthier choices.  All this, and we’ve raised money for The Food Works, Sheffield. We are so proud of you all

Y6 Tesco Visit

Dear Parent/Carer

Y6 Tesco Trip

Year 6 will be working incredibly hard on their Enterprise Project; they will design a healthy food item to make and sell in school to raise money for charity. This week the children are preparing a 'Dragons' Den' style presentation in which they will ask for a loan, in order to set up their own business. After this, the children will move onto the next stage of the project - buying, making and selling their products. As a result, the children will take the money that they have asked to borrow to Tesco and Fairshare (Savile Street) next week to buy the ingredients that they will need to make their products. We are asking for £1.60 for your child's return bus fare. Please bring all monies to the school office. Please make sure that your child brings a rain coat and wears sensible footwear on the day of the visit.

We will be taking the bus to and from Tesco on the day of the visit, aiming to leave school at 12:45 and returning before 3pm. You will be able to collect your child at normal home time.

Below are the dates of each visit:

Y6 Amethyst (Mrs Hodgkins class) - Tuesday, 17th September 2019

Y6 Sapphire (Miss Scrimgeour's class) - Wednesday, 18th September 2019

Y6 Rhodonite (Miss Field's class)- Thursday, 19th September 2019 P

Please make sure that all your details are kept up to date at the school office.

Thank you for your continuing support.
