The 6.2 Minion Challenge

Updated weekly

 

In Year 6.2, we like to encourage reading
Each week, the children will have the opportunity to be in the reading draw. 
They need to be using their homework diary effectively, recording all reading at school and at home, writing down their homework tasks and important messages and also have their diary checked and signed by an adult. 

Keep an eye on the lucky winners and the even luckier Minions that get to go home and take part in the weekend reading.

Blood models in Science

 

Year 6 have been learning about the circulatory system. Today, we learnt about the different functions of blood and what it consists of. This includes red blood cells (cheerios and red food colouring), white blood cells (marshmallows) and platelets (pom poms) as well as plasma and other vital nutrients for our bodies to survive. 

A very exciting lesson with some fantastic questions.

As the last weeks of term came to an end, the Year 6 pupils completed building their own city using 3D shapes. The vocabulary that the children were able to use when they were discussing the city was fantastic. Well done everyone. There are some future architects in the making.

The children designed their own experiments today to see how the distance of the light source affects the size of the shadow. There was a lot of discussions about their predictions and then if their answers supported their original prediction or not.

The children had the opportunity to apply their knowledge of shape to our Building City Geometrocity. 

The children had to complete permits to pass the building regulations, develop their knowledge of shapes and the appropriate terminology and then build a city from scratch using various nets.

Year 6 have completed the first 4 weeks of their Mini Police workshops. They have looked at road safety, crime in the community, anti-social behaviour and what it takes to be a Police Officer working in Hatfield. The children have really enjoyed their workshops so far and have been really enthusiastic when taking part in the activities.

Year 6.2's opinions about Global Explorer Week and the Mini Marines

Year 6.2's opinions about Global Explorer Week and the Mini Marines 1

For our Global Explorers themed week, we have been studying the perilous journey of Ernest Shackleton and how he attempted to be the first to cross Antarctica in 1914.

We listened to his opinion through our conscience alley and decided if we would join the team on it's journey. By the end of the week, we will be writing letters to Ernest himself as to why he should allow us to become a key member of his team and join him on Endurance. 

During our STEM activities, we have looked at the different equipment, food and clothing that we would need and have an informed decision as to how we would keep ourselves safe should we visit the Halley VI research station on Antarctica. This had led to budget setting and lots of discussion and team work.

During the first week of school, we looked at the story of 'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds. Vashti, the character from the book, overcomes the challenges of not feeling like her work is good enough. 
In Year 6, we created our own dot masterpieces, wrote words of encouragement with dots and we wrote ourselves an encouraging letter for when things get tricky in our learning.
