Autumn Term 2
We have been working tremendously hard this term which has allowed us to make excellent progress across all subjects.It has been brilliant working with the new Year 6 and the staff are very happy with the enthusiasm pupils are showing us each day.
This term we are learning about the environment and this will include an exciting trip to Bolton Abbey- where we will use maps, sketch the environment and partake in team building exercises. This trip is also linked to our work in class where we are learning about the journey of a river, using Ordinance Survey Maps and using an atlas to find key information. Our English ties in beautifully with this theme as we are learning about volcanoes through the text On Dangerous Ground while developing our reading comprehension skills with a particular focus on inference and justifying our answers with evidence from the text. We hope to move on to a beautiful book named The Promise which delves deeper into city-life and how everyone can change if they want to. In Maths we are focusing on calculations using the four operations to apply our understanding to many deeper learning tasks (which are proving very challenging at the moment!).
Autumn Term 1
In English we studied the wonderful story "There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom". We made predictions on the text and analysed sections of the story with a focus on providing evidence to support our answers. In Maths, we developed our Number and Place Value skills. We also learnt how to recognise decimal numbers as well as numbers up to 10,000,000! In Science we answered the question "Is change a good thing?" with the focus being on Evolution and Inheritance. Theme lessons concentrated on the Shang Dynasty which we all found extremely interesting and this provided lots of opportunities for group discussions.
6DH working together in order to solve some tricky problems during Outdoor Learning.
6NW visited Cliffe Castle Museum as part of the Science Topic: Inheritance and Evolution. We participated in a workshop and explored the museum. We found different fossils and thought carefully about how species have evolved and adapted to their environment over time.

A glimpse into the life of Year 6....
As you can see in the pictures, our working walls are coming along nicely and they showcase our progression in the first weeks of the Autumn term. Habiba, who has her colourful work displayed in the slideshow, has been producing fabulous work in English. She has demonstrated excellent inference skills and provided evidence to support her views. In English, we have also been focusing on writing, and modifying, complex sentences. The fantastic work featured in the slideshow shows the standard of work which is expected from all our pupils.
