Year 6 Blog

Summer 1
To help us with our revision for our SATs test we invited Year 5 to pop in to see us. We turned from pupils to teachers for the afternoon and designed lots of activities to help children from the year below answer SATs style questions. We covered area, perimeter, measure, algebra and fractions.
Have a look at us in action:
Spring 2
Yr 6 found out what it was like to work in a textile mill during the Industrial Revolution as part of their trip to Armley Mills this week. Just like the original mill children we had a morning in the school room with a very strict Victorian teacher and then spent the rest of the day earning our keep on the mill floor among the spinning mules!
 

Spring 1

Who's the bloodiest Tudor?
 
This half term, Year 6 were working hard to find out who the most blood thirsty Tudor was. In the end, it was a split decision between Henry the VIII and Mary I - or Bloody Mary as she was more commonly known. The children worked incredibly hard to put on an outstanding assembly and they even turned their hand to a bit of stitching.

Autumn 2

Year 6 were set the challenge of researching creating their own Anderson or Morrison shelters. We had some amazing models, drawing, sculptures and even cakes!

All of the year 6 teachers were blown away by the extremely HIGH standard and creativity!

Feel free to have a look through some of the entries.

Trip to Thwaites Mill
 
Year 6 stepped back into 1941 on our trip to Thwaites Mill. We learnt about what life would have been like for an evacuee including how to deal with pre-decimalisation money, how much food you would receive each week during rationing and what to do during an air raid. We also spent time learning about how the putty produced by the mill helped repair bombed out buildings across the UK. Before we left, there was just enough time to make our very own gas masks.
 
Take a look at what we got up to!

Autumn 1

Our theme for Arts Week this year was World War 2. We designed and created our own sculptures, created a poppy cascade and produced a silhouette picture, portraying the iconic London Blitz.
