Summer Term 2019

Some of our Year 6 have been working cooperatively to plan modern settlements in Geography. They had to think about housing, roads, leisure facilities, open spaces, natural features and public facilities – all within a given budget!

This week, in Topic we have been looking at towns, cities and counties in the UK. We used a map to locate and name cities in the UK. We searched the map for the location and position of the different cities. We played a game online where we had to guess which city was displayed on the map of the UK. We had three guesses to guess right. We have also been using our mapping skills to locate and identify counties. We discovered there are four counties with Yorkshire in their names and that North Yorkshire is the largest county in England. We located the counties of England using the eight compass points and statements or questions. As a challenge, some of us created our own questions… “How many counties contain the letter ‘a’?”

Spring Term 2019

We’ve just had a Design and Technology Day! Each class have researched, designed, created and evaluated different products to sell at our Young Enterprise Marketplace, which will be held tomorrow! Year 6 have created some amazing felt purses and wallets, which put into practice various skills! They even had time to bake some delicious chocolate chip cookies!

As part of World Book Day, Year 6 took part in a quiz, read some of their favourite books, designed front covers for their short stories with flashbacks, and spent some quality time reading with their Reception Buddies!

In a recent Maths lesson, Year 6 worked in small groups to match fractions, decimals and percentages dominoes to form a loop!

During the Electricity topic in Science, Year 6 have been creating their own ‘Steady Hand’ games whilst constructing circuits. They needed to make sure their conductors were working properly and everything was wired up correctly!
