Welcome to 6T!
My name is Ms Thomas and I teach in 6T, where I work closely with Miss Stalker, the other Year 6 teacher. We have two members of support staff: Mrs Crozier and Mrs Tuer.
I hope you are ready for your final year at Torrisholme. It's hard work but it will be worth it. Are you prepared for lots of fun and challenges along the way?
Have you read a book that you want to tell the world about? Then write a review to share your opinions with everyone.
This is our very own class page, so please feel free to suggest ideas for what you would like to see here.
Our Residential Trip to Edinburgh
The first day back after the Easter holidays and the start of a new topic. The children were faced with a mystery: a crime had been committed and we wanted to find out what it was and who the perpetrator was.
Here we are, searching for evidence in the school grounds.
To finish off our 'Superheroes' topic, we invited parents into class for a special film premiere. They were treated to an exclusive viewing of our superhero films, made with LEGO Movie Maker.
Check out our films on the Torrisholme TV section of this website.
For the final day of Science Week we were set a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Challenge: to build a tall, stable structure that could support a tennis ball for ten seconds. The classes were divided across school so that younger and older children could work together. Have a look at how we got on.
The second half of spring term and it was Science Week. What a great time we had! The enthusiasm and science knowledge was wonderful. Have a look at what we got up to . . .
Science Week started with an assembly led by Joel, our visiting Science Boffin.
The Biscuit Dunking Challenge
We all love a nice cuppa with a few biscuits to dunk, but which type of biscuit is best for dunking? We decided to investigate. After some careful testing, we found that the shortbread finger held out the longest (over five minutes!), but the Rich Tea put up a good fight!
Ms Thomas had the perfect recipe for slime and we had great fun making it!
It's Christmaaassss! (Well, nearly...)
We are getting a little bit Christmassy in 6T, making tree decorations to sell at the Christmas Fair. The children have been working very hard to produce a quality product that you will enjoy bringing out each Christmas. Why not come along and bag yourself a beautiful handmade tree decoration this Friday?
The Big Book Swap
On Wednesday 22nd November, we hosted the Big Book Swap in Year 6. And what a response it was! We were overwhelmed with the number of books sent into school - we even had a few picture books left over to put into our school library!
Thank you to all children and parents for your donations; everyone in school could go home with a book that was new to them. Keep on reading, everyone!
On Monday 6th November, we had a theme day on the subject of Christianity and, specifically for Year 6, 'Life as a Journey.' What an interesting and full day we had! We started off with some visitors: Jonny taught us about the Bible story of Paul's journeys, which resulted in his conversion to become a follower of Jesus. Later in the morning, Steve Hewitt came to answer children's questions about God and religion. There were some very interesting and thought-provoking questions from 6T!
In the afternoon, we visited two local churches and learned about life as a journey for Christians and Jesus' journey.
