The Great Outdoors

We have been collaborating with Year 3 on our topic, The Great Outdoors.

We discussed the importance of listening to each other's ideas and involving everyone in the group.  Here are some photographs to show us collaborating together.

All this week, Year 5 and Year 6 have been working on a joint mini-topic called Art on the Street.  In one of the sessions we found out about the American artist, Keith Haring, and created our own works representing different attributes.  Check out our work below.

VOTING and DEMOCRACY

A huge well done to year 6 who recently took part in their own political campaign. The children worked really well collaboratively to put together policies for our school, the local area and our country. Congratulations to the Hyper Vipers who received the most votes and will join the School Council until the end of term.

Science ~ Light and Shadow

We have been learning about light and shadow this week.  We wanted to prove that light travels in straight lines, so we planned an investigation to show this.  It was quite tricky trying to make the light hit the target, but when we adjusted the angle of the mirrors we were more successful.

 

Rosie, Daniel P. and Elysha were very successful with their investigation; if you look at their photograph in the slideshow below, you can see clearly how the light travels in straight lines.  Great science work, you three!

 

 

Does light travel in straight lines?

To Be or Not to Be.... A Shakespeare Pencil Topper...

We loved making these pencil toppers.  Why not make one yourself at home?  All you need is a polystyrene ball, brown or red wool, some scraps of felt, some googly eyes and a short piece of lace.  Use a red felt tip pen to draw the mouth.

 

You will then have your very own miniature version of the Bard!

What a busy term we've had!

On the last day of term, a beautiful spring day, Mrs Green organised an Easter Egg Hunt for Year 6.

Young Voices 2015

Wow!  We had the most amazing experience yesterday: we attended our first ever Young Voices concert in Manchester.  Not only did we sing brilliantly but we were able to experience the incredible street dancing talents of Urban Strides.  We also got to see some wonderful live musical performances: Lucy Spraggan, Tom Billington and MiC Lowry.  Check out our photos below.  To see more clips of the concert, go to www. youngvoices.co.uk (YVTV).

 

 

What did we think of Young Voices 2015?

"It was amazing!  There were 7,375 children singing at once.  One of the greatest things I've experienced in my life!  I particularly enjoyed Urban Strides because of their awesome dance moves!" (Ethan)

 

"Although we were the main choir, we had some more visitors: Lucy Spraggan, MiC Lowry, Urban Strides and Tom Billington.  It was so worth it!  The experience was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity." (Rosie)

 

"I really liked it when everybody was doing the actions at the same time - it was overwhelming.  I really enjoyed it.  It was especially awesome when all the lights went off and the volume went up!" (Isaac)

 

"We made a lot of great memories during the Young Voices concert.  It was amazing as all the parents joined in with the performances, like the Urban Strides dance moves and Lucy Spraggan.  It was one of the best experiences of my WHOLE LIFE!" (Emma)

 

"The whole experience was amazing!  I never imagined singing in a choir with over 7,000 members." (Heidi)

Outdoor PE

In PE we invented a new invasion game called Nootball!  It's netball mixed with football (well, the football nets!). Here is a short video clip, giving you a taste of the game.

 

Wondering why it's so quiet? In this game you're not allowed to call out people's names, otherwise you are sent off the court for thirty seconds.  We love playing Nootball!

Science ~ Balancing Forces

We have been investigating forces in Science this week and testing Aristotle's theory on gravity. 

 

Aristotle stated that two objects of different masses, when dropped from the same height, will fall at different rates.  He went on to claim that if one of the objects is ten times heavier than the other, it will fall ten times faster.  We devised a simple investigation to test this.

 

Challenging scientific theories from the past

Enterprise Week

This week, Year 6 have created their own company 'Creative Candles'. At Friday's Christmas Fair, they will be selling a range of beautifully decorated candle holders, snow globes and sweetie jars, all the perfect accessory to decorate your home or making the perfect Christmas gift. You can find their fabulous creations in 6T with prices starting from just 50p.

We love our pets!  Send in a photograph and we can feature your pet in this gallery.

Punctuation Corner

In 6T we love punctuation (well, Ms Thomas does!).  Look at these examples of misused or absent punctuation; sometimes there can be some quite funny results!

Picture 3 Everyone loves a disco!

Ethan found these examples. Well spotted, Ethan!

Armistice Day

11th November 2014

I have been so impressed with the Year 6 children today.  Not only did they prepare and lead a Remembrance Assembly for the juniors, but they also created an art installation to remember all those who have died in war.  They have shown great sensitivity and maturity.  Well done, everyone.

 

Please take a look at our poppies:
