Year 6

Dear Year 6 Children,

My name is Miss Welsby and I am the class teacher in Year 6 (Mountaineers). I am looking forward to teaching you for the next year and have lots of fun activities and topics planned for you.

As a member of Year 6 you will have many important roles to fulfil. You may be selected as House Captain, a messenger of Hermes to help deliver the Gold Behaviour Award, an ambassador for the school, and a guide for Parents Evening to name a few. You may also have the responsibility of being role models to the other children in the school, leading by example at all times, especially your buddies in Ladybirds.

The information below will help you and answer any questions that you may have.

P.E.
Your P.E. day is Friday. Please ensure you have a full kit with you, including suitable footwear. We will also be swimming from 2nd-12th October.

Library
Your library session is on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure you find time to read your library book and return it to be changed the following fortnight.

Homework
Homework will be given out on a Friday and will consist of a spelling list to learn, a Maths activity and a Grammar/English task. Please ensure all tasks are completed in full and returned by the following Wednesday at the latest.

Reading
In addition to your homework you are expected to read at least 3 times a week at home (15-20 minutes a night). Make a note of any reading that you do in your reading record, noting any particular parts that you enjoyed or words that you struggled with.

Curriculum
In Year 6 you will have the opportunity to travel back in time to the Shang Dynasty and also to become an evacuee and understand what life was like during World War 2.
Your Geography studies will allow you to travel to North America, China, Russia and closer to home, Cumbria.
Science will provide you with many opportunities to carry out investigations and deepen your scientific knowledge.

Kingswood at Colomendy
Finally we have the residential trip to look forward to. We will be going to Kingswood at Colomendy, North Wales, for a two day stay on 21st and 22nd September. Whilst there, you will have the opportunity to work as a team, solve problems, develop resilience and become more resourceful in your approach to tasks.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please speak to me or one of the Year 6 team.

Miss Welsby

 


 

Lego Stop Motion Animation

As part of the Computing Curriculum, Year 6 have been learning the skills necessary to make their own stop motion animation with Lego. Stop motion animation is a fun and easy way to inspire creativity and is very popular with Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run just two movies that use stop motion that you may have seen.

Here are a selection of our creations, the animations were created using an iPad and the Lego Movie Maker App (free)
