Our 2020-2021 holiday dates are available to view on our ‘School Holiday Dates’ page. Thank you

Year 6

Autumn 2

This week was also the first ‘Good work assembly’ of the term.  Some of the children in Year 6 showed their amazing work to the  rest of Year 5 and 6. The children showed their projects and read out some fantastic writing they have produced.

 

Over the half term holidays, the Year 6 children were asked to create a research project in relation to electricity.  These are just a few examples of the exceptional work that has been brought in. All the children are eager to explore the topic further.  We would like to extend our regards to all of the families who supported the children with their projects.

Autumn 1

As promised, below are the fantastic art pieces produced for Black History Month.  Children used a range of colours to express the emotions Rosa Park’s would have felt during the bus ordeal.

 

In honour of Black History Month, the children in Year 6 have focused on Rosa Parks.  Throughout the week, the children have had various lessons which provided a background of her life as well as the impact she had as a civil rights activist.  They even reenacted the iconic bus event that sparked the Civil Rights movement.  Watch this space for their spectacular art pieces of Rosa Parks.

 

 

This term, Year 6 have focused on the Victorian artist-William Morris.  They have spent several lessons learning a range of techniques utilised by the artist.  With this in mind, the children produced a William Morris inspired wallpaper.  Look at their incredible work to see a range of: hatching, cross-hatching, scumbling and stippling!

 

 

As part of World Mental Health day, the children came dressed in an item of yellow to support the cause.  Additionally, they engaged in a range of meditation which demonstrated the impacts a healthy mind has on a person.

 

 

Year 6 had an amazing time at Beamish and are excited to write up their murder mystery stories. Watch this space!

 

 

 

A big thank you to all parents, carers and families who have supported their children with their summer project based on the Victorians.  It has furthered the children’s learning and the outcomes are fantastic! The children have thoroughly enjoyed following a line of enquiry based on their projects.
