Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 class page!

We are also known as the Peregrine Falcons!

We are confident! We are compassionate! We are curious!

 

In Year 6, the teachers supporting your children are:

  • Miss Parker (Class teacher)
  • Miss Sue (Learning support)

 

Our priority this year is to ensure your child feels safe, happy and ready to learn by creating a fun and engaging environment where they can thrive.

By ensuring they are comfortable at school, we can be certain that they will excel in their learning to the best of their ability.

 

Throughout the year, we will support your child in their learning and well-being; particularly in the lead up to the SATs which will happen in May.

Spirituality Week

This week the children have taken part in a wonderful week of creativity, thought provoking discussions and fun activities. The children started the week looking at a book called 'The Tin Forest'. Please see the link below  which takes you to a reading of the book online. After looking at the book, the children discussed the themes and vocabulary and went on to create some of their very own Tin Forest poetry. 

Over the course of this week, we have discussed what is meant by 'God's Good Earth'. The children have examined the problems that we have in our world and how to solve these as well as creating their ideal world. 

The children have created wordles- words that they would like in their version of God's Good Earth placed into different shapes. 

 

We had a visitor who discussed with the children the importance of trees and what they add to our world too. 

 

The highlight of this week was the children creating their very own tin animals from plastic that they had collected and then working alongside a dance teacher to create a routine which they then all shared with each other as a school. 

It has been a pleasure to see how creative the children have been this week and also how reflective they have been about the world around them. A wonderful week full of fun and enthusiasm. Please see below for a collection of pictures over the week. 

Spirituality Week

End of SATS! Spreading Positivity

Year 6 have spent some of their time today spreading a bit of positivity.

Year 6

Holocaust Memorial Day

We Created a Kindertransport Quilt Collage.

 

'I have drawn a suitcase waiting alone by a train to show that many people did not not make it out alive, but some did.' Harrison.

 

'My drawing shows a girl in the middle of a broken heart with her parents on one side, reaching for her. On the other side is her foster parents. One day this girl will have to choose one family.' Isla.

 

'My design shows your heart is full, in Germany, but when you are on the train your heart is broken. When you get to Britain, your heart starts to mend again.' Leo.

 

'I have included a train going to England with Jewish children in it. This represents the one day they find safety and salvation.' Marcus.

 

'The parents are staying in Germany, whilst the child will find peace in Britain. Their hearts are torn apart by the separation.' Henry W

 

'The children in the boat are very sad because they have had to leave their family and home behind. The rain represents their tears. Their journey is from fear to peace.' Olivia.

 

'My drawing represents a broken heart, being patched up by the positivity her birth mother sent her, in letters from home. The letters and objects represent her memories and the bond that shouldn’t be broken.' Noah.

 

'My artwork shows that one day a child’s life changed, forever. Many children had to travel from Germany to Britain on trains. I have put letters in the windows of the train to show that children are writing and receiving letters from and to their loved ones.'  Katie.
