Welcome

Year 6 - Miss Moorhead

Welcome to Year 6M (2020/21)smiley

End of term 

We have enjoyed some fun events and lots of treats during the last few days of term. Goodbye P6! 

P6M’s got talent! 
Forget BGT, today was the premiere of P6M’s got talent! Have a look at the photos to see what a talented class we are. 

PATHS Buddy training

Martina from Barnardos spent the morning with us.  She was training us in preparation for being playground buddies next year. We enjoyed the activities, drama and games. We can’t wait to put our training into practice. 

Literacy - letter writing 

In Literacy, we wrote letters to our favourite authors.  We told them a little about ourselves and why we liked their books. We thought of some great questions to ask our favourite authors. We hope to receive replies! 

Posting letters to our favourite authors.

Happy Father’s Day!

RAINFORESTS 

This term we have been investigating life in the rainforest. We have thoroughly enjoyed this WAU topic. Have a look at our displays. We are a creative bunch! 

Sports Day 2021

We were so glad that we were able to have Sports Day in our class bubbles this year. We had such a fun morning. We took part in Sprint, 3 legged race, Obstacle, Beanbag throw and Long Distance. We encouraged each other and displayed great sportsmanship!

Sustrans walk 

We really enjoyed our walk around the rugby pitches today. The weather was great, and we were able to eat our snack outside in the forest area when we returned to school.

World Maths Day

We had lots of fun celebrating World Maths Day. We took part in Maths challenges and completed some fraction artwork. Miss Butler, our student teacher, treated us to a special World Maths Day cake! We finished our day by playing live Mathletics in the computer suite.  

ColouRufun!

We had great fun at school today. We really enjoyed taking part in the Colour Run. Hopefully we have raised lots of money for the Cancer Fund for Children. 

Check out Year 6 completing their sponsored run; we think we were definitely running this quickly around the pitch!!🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️

Our first Golden Time of 2021!

Happy Easter!

We are so glad to be back at school with our friends!

In our class, everyone is a special piece of the puzzle!

Christmas jumper day and Christmas dinner!

Scarlett entertained us with some Christmas music.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in P6M! 

We have been enjoying decorating our classroom for Christmas. Have a look at the photos to see our tree decorations, art and craft and fabulous wall displays. 

December art and craft.

Spelling Superstars 

Today Mrs Saulters briefly visited our classroom. We impressed her with our spelling and mental maths results in our Friday Progress Tests! She gave us gold stars for our spelling chart. Thank you Mrs Saulters! 

Remembrance Day 11.11.20

P6M enjoyed analysing the poem entitled In Flanders Fields. We learned a lot about why it was written and what it means. We observed a two minute silence to remember and give thanks.

Golden Time 

P6M have been working very hard this week in class. Today we enjoyed our much deserved Golden Time. We hope that we are allowed to have Golden Time outside again soon. Look at the photos to see how much fun we had!

Pen Licence 

This week some pupils were awarded with their pen licence. Well done on your beautiful handwriting!

Accelerated Reader

We have been reading lots and taking quizzes to try and reach our AR targets for our first quizzing period in P6. Those who achieved their targets were rewarded with a homework pass and a special certificate. Well done! 

AR certificates

Guy Fawkes Literacy activities.

This week we enjoyed learning about the story of Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot.  We used storyboards to sequence and recount this historical story. We then worked in groups to prepare a freeze frame for part of the story. A freeze frame is like pressing the pause button on your remote. Can you guess what is happening (from the story of Guy Fawkes) in each of our freeze frames? 

Freeze frames

PTA Barn dance.

On our last day at school before half term, the PTA arranged a Barn dance for us. We all had great fun. 

Pumpkin zentangles.

Africa

Our WAU topic this term is Amazing Africa. We have been enjoying finding out lots of fun facts and information about this wonderful continent. 

Literacy 

This week in Literacy we were investigating story openings.  We took part in some shared writing, and we composed an opening as a class.  After this, we worked with partners to write some imaginative story openings. 

Story openings - partner work

Numeracy 

This week we have been learning about quadrilaterals and their properties. Today we were learning outside in the sunshine.  We were amazed at how many parallel lines and quadrilaterals we found in the environment around us. 

Quadrilateral hunt.

Measuring perimeter.

This week we have been investigating perimeter.  Mrs Saulters challenged our class to find a suitable place for our new marquee. We worked in groups to measure the perimeter of the marquee, and then we marked out suitable places on the playground. We had a great morning measuring and learning outdoors.  We have given Mrs Saulters plenty of ideas, and we have been reminded of just how useful Mathematics is in everyday life. 

Real life problem solving.

We have been enjoying our first few days back at school!
