Year 6Miss Goldsmith and Mrs Storey
Hello and welcome to class 6!
We know that year 6 will be a year full of challenge and excitement – in fact we think it’s going to be the best year ever! There are 25 children in our class. Our teacher is called Miss Goldsmith and Mrs Storey is our teaching assistant.
There is so much we love to do. Some of us are great sportsmen and women and some are fantastic artists; we have quite a few mathematicians, a handful of future computer programmers and even a few budding authors! Whatever our talents, we love to share them with each other and help our friends learn and excel!
We can’t wait to see what the year brings!
A huge well done to our fantastic Year 4 children who won today’s Skip Dance festival at Houghton Kepier. Amazing skills and dancing from you all – super teamwork! City finals in June here we come!
Year 4 have been learning about the different parts and functions of plants. We had fun trying to pair up names with the description of what each part does. Next week, we are beginning our investigation into plant growth. Come back soon to see how we get on.
Here are our winners from each class for the best dressed book character for World Book Day! They each got to choose a book of their choice from the book fair. Well done!
On Wednesday 1st March, KS2 took part in a fantastic ‘Reading Breakfast’ where we were joined by members of our family to share our love of reading. We read our books, answered challenge cards and enjoyed drinks and snacks too!
We have enjoyed finding out about Roman Gods and Goddesses this week, looking at the similarities and differences between Roman and Greek Gods. Class 5 loved using information about each God and Goddess to create our own top trumps cards based on power, strength, weapons and importance. We then played against each other to see who came out on top!
We are now time experts in Year 4. We have been working on converting between digital and analogue times and put our skills to the test playing follow me cards.
In our first lesson looking at magnets and forces, we carried out an investigation around school to see which types of metals would attract magnets and which would repel them.
We used paints to create winter scenes and decided on the perspective we wanted our picture to be seen from. Look at the end results!
To complete our topic on the ‘Groovy Greeks’, Year 4 took part in a food tasting session. We tried different culinary delights such as calamari, halloumi, feta cheese, yoghurt, olives and tzatziki. Our facial expressions will tell you whether we liked the food…
Once again, our Christmas Fair was a huge success. Thank you for your continued support. Have a lovely Christmas!
Class 5 love our weekly visit to the school library where we become totally engrossed in our books.
A huge thank you to you all for your fabulous contributions to our Macmillan Coffee Morning. We raised a staggering £434.41. It was a great success and we all enjoyed eating lots of cake.
