Year 6Miss Goldsmith, Mrs Donkin and Mrs Plant.
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 27 children in our class. Our teacher is called Miss Goldsmith and Mrs Donkin 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!
Some of the members of our school council went to Hetton School this week to take part in the annual Anti Bullying Conference. Take a look at our pictures!
We had an amazing day in London yesterday! Have a look at some of our photographs!
Enjoying our tea at the Rainforest Cafe in London. We’re all now happily full and on the train on our way home 🙂
We have been working on plotting co-ordinates over 4 quadrants this week and enjoyed using the Internet to play co-ordinate games to improve our skills. Sam was the Billy Bug champion – 10 feeds in 1 minute 11 seconds! Well done Sam 🙂
We designed our own water safety leaflets after our visit from the RNLI lifeguards. Hopefully they’ll give people a lot of useful information on how to keep safe in open water.
Hannah brought in a beautiful Tudor tapestry to share with the class and told us all about the life of Henry VIII and the fate of all 6 wives. Thanks Hannah!
We used instructional language and coordinates in maths to create our own version of our partner’s designs! Some people made their shapes easy to follow – some were a little more challenging! We had good fun and Mrs Wardle was impressed with our talk partner skills 🙂
Class 6 enjoyed a fab guided reading session today – some of us read with Mrs Plant, Mystery group finished their story with Mrs Wardle and chose their new book ready to start on Thursday (they voted for a non fiction book about endangered species), one group continued with their reading tasks – a very arty affair, the Fantasy group enjoyed chilling on the sofa and bean bags whilst reading the e books on the tablets and the Adventure group spent time in the Cyber C@ve researching the current news stories on the laptops before returning to class to fill us in on their findings! What a fab session!
Year 5 and 6 worked alongside the RNLI to find out about how to keep safe when swimming in open water. We found out about the various flags and what they mean, as well as strategies to keep ourselves safe.
We worked alongside the SAFC Foundation of Light to improve our football skills. Can you spot the next Messi?
Class 6’s Mystery guided reading group spent their session in the Cyber C@ve today where they used the Newsround website to research current news stories. Once they had finished, they returned to class to fill the rest of us in on what’s going on in the news today!
