Year 6: Birch, Elm

Welcome to year Six!

Your teachers are: Mr Craig & Mrs Collidge  

week commencing 15th April 2024


NB: We have left the Ten for Ten pdfs and answers below for those children that haven't yet checked their answers.

NB2: Attached below is the poster for the NHS Peer Mentoring Scheme, which is aimed towards helping Year Six children make a smooth transition to secondary school. Please let us know if you sign up!


All of the children reported having a good Easter break, and it is clear that the Maltesers and Creme Egg Easter eggs were the most popular! Back in school again, and we have introduced a new hook in our English, started looking at angles in maths, had a visit from the RNLI and worked with Liquorice Allsorts in science!


In English, after writing narrative poems last half term, we will be using a rather stylised short film clip - based on the three little pigs story - for our writing. The children have really enjoyed the sessions this week, and have produced some good work, with a focus on formality and bias.


After a look at the mean average, we have done a lot of work with angles this week, both using protractors and calculating angles based on our prior knowledge. 


Our new science topic is all about classification. So, with classification keys in hand, we spent time in the forest school identifying the trees we have on the school site. After that, we also made our own keys using a range of Liquorice Allsorts.


On Tuesday, we had a visit from the RNLI, who gave their annual talk to the children about the work they do and the importance of beach safety. The children were incredibly mature and were able to show good knowledge on the work the RNLI does.


In DT this term, the children will be making frame structures, and they started this week by generating some ideas. Our focus in PSHE is personal safety and consent, so this week, we learnt the PANTS rules.


This week, we also spent some time with our Year R buddies.


Have a great weekend!

Mr Craig & Mrs Collidge
