Welcome to Year 6 Class 1 page!
Here you will find events celebrated, fantastic learning going on and thought of the children shared throughout the year.
We hope you will see examples of enthusiasm, resilience and passion for learning demonstrated on this page.
If you look further down this page, you will find weekly plans to assist with home learning. You will also find a list of helpful online resources including how to help with reading.
If we had been in school we would have had the opportunity to attend the University of Hertfordshire to take part in a workshop called Crucial Crew. This is an informative talk and workshop where you would have learned about different scenarios you could face as you get older and how to keep yourself safe if you were to find yourself in them. This workshop would take into consideration that in the coming months you will have greater independence and therefore may be faced with a situation where you will need to make your own choices.
Please spend some time reading and completing the activities below as they could help you in preparation for the start of secondary school in September.
Music w/c 29.06.20
Mrs Miller would like everyone to continue learning this beautiful song. Please watch the videos below (with permission from an adult) and sing along! Enjoy and have fun learning the song.
Ellie A - The Explore Learning was a fun lesson where we had to find different combinations and work in teams.
Maja - Explore Learning was a great way to improve team work and problem solving skills in maths.
Darcey - I think the Explore Learning was really fun and I think it made me feel more confident with maths.
This week we had a workshop about the scientific research boat that is heading for the Arctic. We used bluetooth and a coding programme to make a model submarine propellor spin and make sounds.
6.1 are experts on Celtic Roundhouses after writing their own estate agent style adverts about the features of these traditional homes. We worked in groups to follow instructions to build them and searched for natural materials in our school grounds to add to the roof.
We decided to make the most of this week's beautiful weather, and took our story boxes outside to share with Year 3. The story boxes really stretched our imaginations and we saw some great partnerships between children at both ends of ks2.
"Merci" to the PSA who put on an authentic French cafe for us to experience the tastes of France!
We had a fantastic day meeting the team from Prison Me No Way. We had all our questions about the criminal justice system answered by people who had experienced it themselves in various ways. We got to experience a true to size prison cell and produced some brilliant writing based on the effects of rehabilitation in prison.
For our Live Learning session this week, we spent the afternoon looking at test techniques in a more fun and engaging way. Our parents were able to see the types of test questions that we complete during our reading tests, but they also got to see how we go about answering the questions by using evidence from the text.
Thank you to everyone who came and joined us, we had a lovely afternoon learning alongside you.
Some of us ventured downstairs, while the rest of us had visitors upstairs. We swapped with children in Year 2 to read with each other. We had pairs, floor books in groups and even Romanian translations of fairy tales
We would like to say a huge thank you to our YCA members who organised a brilliant wonder day with the theme of "women in history". The theme of the day was embraced by boys and girls alike in 6.1, with some fantastic costumes representing women that have shaped the world, and the men that supported them in doing so.
We reminded ourselves of what we need to make sure we are doing/ not doing online to stay safe, in recognistion of e-safety day.
