Welcome to the year 6 class page!
Our next interesting and slightly gruesome topic next term is:
Both year six classes have thoroughly enjoyed their topic this term learning about the heart. In order to have a successful and enjoyable end to the term the classes organised their own British Heart Foundation fundraising event in order to help raise awareness and money for such a worthy cause.
As you can see from the pictures below, the children were really enthused to provide a non-forgettable experience for the rest of the school and themselves. The running total for the amount raised at the moment is £805. But we're hoping to raise that little bit more! Thank you to everyone who has donated and provided support so far. One team, one dream!
Year Six have had an interesting yet slightly gruesome topic lesson this week as we have been able to dissect a real sheep heart as part of our Science lesson in class!
Both classes really enjoyed getting 'hands on' with their learning and were able to identify most of the major components that make up a heart. Please enjoy looking at our pictures below.
Year Six have enjoyed spending some time learning about the Christmas Story this term for RE and Science. Recently, the children enjoyed a trip to St Michael's church in Tilehurst in order to learn more about the birth of Jesus. Additionally, the children have also been learning about light and shadows in Science so combining the two seemed like the obvious choice of direction!
Falcons spent time making sketches around the church and especially enjoyed meeting one of our hosts who painted the Nativity scene at the alter!
Please see pictures from the Eagles' shadow puppet performances below and a special thank you to Elizabeth the Rector at St Michael's church and Gill a Governor here at St Michael's for taking the time to come and watch the show.
Year six completed a successful residential week this year at PGL Bawdsey Manor in Suffolk. The children (and staff) managed to conquer some fears whilst taking part in some amazing activities run by the centre. All of the children set a good example for the school and acted with great maturity, well done year six! Please enjoy looking through some of the many pictures that were taken during the trip below.
As part of our learning for RE in school, year six were able to take part in a very valuable trip to the local Mosque on Oxford Road in Reading.
This trip was extremely beneficial to the children and staff as it helped to develop the children's learning and our links within the community that we live in. Thank you Mrs Mupita for organising such a worth while trip.
Our exciting new Topic for our first term in Year Six is:
As part of our learning for Zimbabwe this term, year six have really enjoyed learning about the different artwork that is from this interesting country.
Please take a moment to enjoy looking at our different efforts below of artwork from Zimbabwe.
In class we have been reading an interesting picture book called 'The Lost Thing' by Shaun Tan. In which the main character stumbles upon a lost thing whilst out collecting bottle tops in a world where the little things in life just aren't noticed anymore.
Apart from reading and building our writing around the text, we've also enjoyed acting out the scene where Shaun meets the lost thing on the beach. So please enjoy looking at our performing efforts below.
Please use the below Maths support sheet to help you with any Maths homework you have. Regular revision and practice will also be useful for SATS in May.
