Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of junior school! A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! 
In Year 6, the children will be expected to work hard but in return, they will be rewarded with many happy memories, 

lasting friendships and an increased confidence to take them onto their next adventure.



March 2018


World Book Day


On Wednesday 7th March, we celebrated World Book Day; the theme was to dress-uo as a character from a book written 

by a female author.  We had a fantastic range of characters including Horrid Henry, Tom Gates, Mary Poppins and many 

Harry Potter characters!  Obviously, we have a lot of Harry Potter fans in the classroom!

February 2018


Murder at Sunnymede!


As some of you may be aware, on Tuesday ​20th February, Mrs Southgate was found murdered!  Mrs Mussenden, 

Miss Wilcox and Mrs Whybrow were the suspects and children spent the morning justifying 

who they believed the killer was and why. Linked to our topic on crime scenes this half-term, the children will be finding out 

about Sherlock Holmes and writing police reports about Tuesday.


                


                                                               



Puppets

Learning about puppets in design and technology, the children worked in groups to make their own Day of the Dead 

marionettes.  They had great fun learning new skills such as how to use a saw and hand drill correctly; 

they might be able to help at home with the DIY now!   

   





January 2018

Fairtrade


A big thank you to friends and family who supported our year 6 Fair Trade Enterprise Day​.  
Working collaboratively, the children learnt to budget; measure out ingredients; make their products; write persuasive 
leaflets and produce eye-catching stalls to entince customers, as well as learning about the importance of Fairtrade.  
We made a massive profit of £300 and all monies raised will go towards the cost of the Harry Potter trip next term.

Measurement

In mathematics, ​we have been recognising, estimating and investigating using units of length, mass and capacity. 

Fortunately, we didn't get too wet!

Volcanoes

In geography, the children have been learning about natural disasters such as earhtquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes.  

To describe and explain how volcanoes are formed, the children made chatterboxes.


      



                   



November 2017


              As part of our SMSC lessons, we have been learning about our School's Core Values; British Values; Democracy 
             and the Cabinet, and the Suffragettes.  Our local MP John Baron, came in to talk to the children about the Cabinet. 
         The children asked some thoughtful questions, not only about his role as an MP but about issues affecting world and 
       our local community. John said, "It was a very good meeting with lots of good questions from children who were obviously                                            interested in politics. Congratulations to all concerned, and to those who organised my visit.”

The Battle of Marathon


Have you ever wondered why a marathon is 26 miles long?  As​ part of our Ancient Greek topic, we learnt about 

The Battle of Marathon.  According to legends, the first marathon commemorated the run of the soldier Pheidippides 

from a battlefield near the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C.  

In groups, we wrote a rap to tell the story and performed it to the rest of the class.

Rap 4 - scene 4

Rap 5​ - scene 5



Digestive System

During science, we have been learning about the digestive system.  The children squirmed in their seats as we carried out a simulation.
Joel said, “When the intestines were squeezed, it was disgusting but very factual.”
Alfie said, “It was brought to life because the poop looked real!”

Kingswood Activity Week


This term, a very excited year 6 travelled to Kingswood Activity Centre, in Cromer.  Over the course of the week, 
the children took part in numerous activities including abseiling, archery, fencing and zip-wire.   Not only did it provide 
activities children may never have the opportunity to experience, but it helped them to grow into more confident and 
courageous individuals, improving team-work, self-confidence and motivation.  We had an absolutely amazing week!     


          


 


 

   

    

    


    

       

            

Ancient Greeks

As part of our topic this half-term, the children became archaeologists! 
Carefully uncovering the Ancient Greek remains in their excavation pits, the children had to find all the pieces and put them together 
(a bit like a jig-saw). The children then compared the objects and provided justifiable reasoning to support their predictions.
