Year 6

Bolton Abbey Trip

We had a brilliant visit to Bolton Abbey to study the River Wharfe as part of our current Geography topic of Rivers. We learnt lots about how the river has shaped the landscape and its progress across the country from its source in the Yorkshire Dales. We also produced some natural art and stone stacks in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. The children behaved brilliantly and we had a fantastic day!

International Week - Countries of the World

Watch the video to see what Class 6 have learnt this week - amazing!

Robinwood Day 3

The fun and adventure continues...

Robinwood Day 2

After a good night's sleep the children have had another fantastic day! They have been on the zip wire and tried archery too. The staff said they have been amazing. They are enjoying Team Challenge tonight before hot chocolate and bed time. 

Robinwood Day 1

The children have had a fantastic day on their residential to Robinwood! They have enjoyed canoeing, raft building, the crate challenge, the trapeze and survived the piranha pool! The teachers say the children have been fantastic and are having a brilliant time.  

Into University Day 5 - Life at Leeds University

The class were excited to meet a student at Leeds University and prepared to interview them by writing questions to ask them. The children then interviewed the student online. After which, they went on a Virtual Campus Tour of Leeds University. They were able to take a 360 degree tour of student accommodation including each room!

They particularly enjoyed making a huge long list of what they needed to take with them to University when moving out! Then, we learnt all about clubs and societies that are available and played a fun quiz of are they ‘real’ or ‘fake’ clubs and societies. We even reflected upon which clubs and societies we would like to join and a new one to create!

We looked online at the Great Hall where the graduations take place at Leeds University and reflected on how happy and relieved we would feel upon graduating and gaining a Degree.

In the afternoon, we rehearsed and performed our creative piece expressing our future aspirations.

Into University Day 4 - University Life

What do we know about University? The children discussed when and where you can go to University and all about accommodation including Halls of Residence. The children reflected upon what they would like to know about University and interviewed the adults about their experience.

What is a Prospectus? The children researched all about different University courses available at a range of Universities. They shared their group findings as a class.

University Tree Workshop What is an aspiration? The children reflected upon their own aspirations, what they would like to study at University, where they would like to go, live and societies they would like to join. After this, they wrote their future aspirations on a leaf. The children really enjoyed listening to each other’s presentations of their future University aspirations and displaying their leaf on the University Tree Workshop.

In the afternoon, the children worked in groups to perform their aspirations creatively through song, poetry, acting, speeches and raps.

Into University Day 3

Today we enjoyed a fantastic and informative workshop at Tropical World in Roundhay. 

Nature Detectives:  We explored the fascinating woodland of Roundhay Park to learn about animals’ habitats and consolidate our learning about adaptation. Looking carefully, we identified a variety of leaves and used our measuring skills to calculate the height and age of different trees in the woods. Some of the trees were over 80 years old!  

Tropical World:  In the afternoon, we visited Tropical World. We saw lots of amazing creatures and explored the different habitats including a rainforest canopy, swamp and desert. In addition, we visited the aquarium, creature corner and the waterfall area; finding outs lots of interesting information about the creatures.  

Into University Day 2

We had another fantastic day at Into University; studying for our ‘degree’ in Biological Science. 

Studying Scientists:  We completed our research about a selection of eminent scientists (Rick Kittles, Rosalind Franklin, Charles Darwin and Mary Anning). We worked in our groups to produce an informative display poster; including a range of text types (persuasive letters, fact-files, newspaper reports). They looked really spectacular! 

DNA: In the afternoon, we completed a workshop where we learnt more about DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), which is a chemical made up of two long molecules, arranged in a spiral. We refer to this as the double-helix structure. DNA carries genetic information. It has all the instructions that a living organism needs to grow, reproduce and function. We created our own ‘double-helix structure’ using some edible sweets! Our knowledge and understanding was tested further by some quiz questions, which we answered in groups and individually. 

Into University Day 1

Day 1: Evolution, Adaptation and Inheritance 

We had an exciting first day at Into University; studying for our ‘degree’ in Biological Science. 

Evolution: we watched a video on ‘The Theory of Evolution’ and answered quiz questions about Charles Darwin. We also examined how fossils can help us to understand how living things change over time. 

Adaptation: we discussed the meaning of adaptation and matched animals to their features. Using sentence stems, we discussed how different animals are suited to their environments.  

Inheritance: we learnt how living things pass on their characteristics to their offspring and how DNA carries genetic information.  

Studying Scientists:  

We researched information about eminent scientists and conducted a ‘secret mission’ to present our findings in different ways. 

  • Rick Kittles: an American biologist who specialises in human genetics. 
  • Rosalind Franklin: an English chemist and X-ray crystallographer who helped us to learn more about DNA. 
  • Charles Darwin: an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution.  
  • Mary Anning: a pioneering palaeontologist and fossil collector. 
IntoUniversity Transition Workshop

On Friday 25th June, Class Six attended a special workshop at St. Aidan’s Church where they spent the morning talking about their move from primary to secondary education. The children were given lots of helpful tips for the new year ahead. 

Science & DT Project

Class Six ended their electricity topic by carrying out a technology project, which required them to make an electronic circuit game. The children planned their designs and worked out how to complete the circuit so that the lightbulb lit only when the correct answer was selected. It was hard work but great fun and very rewarding. 

A Day at Herd Farm

Class Six started their final half-term at St. Peter's with a fantastic trip to Herd Farm. Throughout the day, we worked in groups to complete three challenging activities: Giant Swing, Nightline and Assault Course. The children were incredibly well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed their day outside in the open air!

International Week

During International Week, Year Six have been learning all about Italy. For our video, we have put together a quick performance that showcases many of the facts that we have learnt. It starts with a counting song and then moves onto some great trivia about Italy itself. 

Enjoying Wednesday Worship

Class Six have settled back into their normal routines very well. Before lunch, we enjoyed taking part in Mrs Holliday's video assembly. We learned about our Key Values (R.I.S.E) and focused on the first value: RESPECT. We also said the school prayer and our class prayer. It was lovely to have some quiet time during our busy day.

TUESDAY 22ND SEPTEMBER

Dear children,

 

Please find everything you need for the day by clicking the links below. These are strange times and we have to do our very best to keep on going. I have left a little letter for you on the inside of your plan for the day below. Please try your best to keep-up with the fantastic start you have made to your time in Year Six: have high expectations of yourself; try not to rush and always try to feel proud of the work you have produced at the end.

 

If possible, please keep to my suggested times and then it feels like a normal school day. If you'd like any help with a lesson or would like to talk a question through, please use the blog that has been put in place for the day.

 

Thank you finally, to your parents, who have made changes to their routine, to look after you. All of these tasks are achievable independently, so please allow your parents to get on with their work. 

 

Have a good day and keep smiling!

Mr. Robertson :-)

Researching universities
To take a break from our work on evolution and inheritance, today we started to think about why we go to university, whether university is somewhere we aspire to go to, what we’d like to study and which university we’d like to attend.
We hot-seated the Mr Robertson and the IntoUniversity staff, to find out about their university experiences and then we spent time looking at university prospectuses, to explore the huge range of interesting courses on offer. 

Animal Creation

This afternoon we have used our knowledge of adaptation and of different environment habitats, to create a made-up animal of our own. These animals need to be cleverly adapted to be able to survive in their own environment. 

Adaptation

This morning we started our third day at IntoUniversity by looking at a range of different animals and considering how they have adapted over time to survive in their environment. We strapped our thumbs and carried out a range of tasks (such as tying a knot or undoing buttons) to show how our thumbs are essential human adaptation. We then had a guest speaker on Zoom, from ZooLab, who shared lots of facts about how many creatures are adapted to their environments. 
 

Biological Sciences

After a period of talk time, to recap yesterday’s learning, we spent the morning completing our ‘Secret Mission’ where we completed a letter or a biography all about a famous person from the field of biological sciences: Mary Anning, Rick Kittles, Charles Darwin and Rosalind Franklin. 

Secret Mission

This afternoon we started our Secret Mission for the week: to research a famous scientist associated with evolution and inheritance, and to present our findings in the form of a special letter or biography. We found out lots of brilliant facts relating to our new science topic!

DNA

We spent the morning learning about genes and DNA. We even got the chance to make our own DNA double helix! 

IntoUniversity - Evolution and Inheritance

Class Six have arrived at IntoUniversity Leeds, where they will spend the week learning a full unit of Year Six science work, as well as learning about career choices and life at university. All children have arrived with smiling faces and an eagerness to learn. A great week awaits!

Friday 17th July

Good morning children. Well here we are, at the end of your primary school journey and what a journey it has been! You've been an absolute pleasure to teach this year and I am so fortunate to have been able to get to know you. I'd like to thank you for your hard work and effort during lock-down; say a big thank you to your parents for the brilliant support that they have shown you in your home-learning and finally, tell you just what mature and responsible human-beings you have grown up to be. You've done yourselves proud and I will miss you a great deal. I would like to wish you well for your journey onward to high school. You're an incredibly talented bunch of people and I want you to keep aiming high. Be ambitious and don't let anyone tell you that you're not good enough: you're all amazing and the sky is the limit. Follow your dreams and stick up for what you believe. WE CARE about you a great deal. Never forget where your journey began. Take care and best wishes. 

Keep smiling

Mr. Robertson :-)

Saying Goodbye and Good Luck to Class 6

It was lovely to see all 30 Year 6 in school for their final farewell. They had a lovely day; catching up with each other, signing autograph books, a visit from the ice cream van, fish and chips for lunch and finally a disco! They will all be missed and we wish them all the best of luck at High School.

THE BOOK OF HOPES

Hi everyone, I'd like to share with you an absolutely delightful book, that Mr. Hafesth has been talking to me about. It's an extraordinary collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures, with contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson.

The collection is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in our hospitals. Please do have a read and let me know what you think. You can pick and choose which sections of the book you'd like to read, or if you're like me, you can read the whole lot! I do hope that you enjoy it.

A QUICK ART HOMEWORK MESSAGE FROM MRS. WILKINSON...

Next Tuesday (5th May), we will be starting a sewing project. If possible, can you locate the following materials: a needle (the bigger the eye, the better); some thread (cotton or embroidery are great); brown paper or cardboard about A4 in size (for your pattern); some pins and a range of material or fabric (can be old clothes/curtains/bedding etc) in the seven colours of the rainbow (they don’t have to be block colours, they can have patterns on with other colours, the closest you can find).

Thank you.

Mrs Wilkinson

A message for Class 6...

Dear Class 6

I hope you are all well and had a good Easter. Mrs Holliday and I have been looking at some of the questions and comments you have put on your blog and thought it might help to write to you.   

I agree with Kenean – we all hope Covid will go away soon! In the meantime, it is important that we follow the rules that the Government have set and that we stay at home and stay safe.

There has been a lot in the news about when we will be going back to school. As Yohannes said, the Secretary of State for Education said there is no date about when schools will be opening again. That does not mean you will never be going back to school! At the moment the priority is to keep everyone safe and well so schools need to stay closed. Although we really miss each other, the most important thing is to stay safe. As soon as we know any more about when school will open again we will let everyone know. Hopefully it won’t be too long!

Just before schools had to close it was assessment week when you did proper SATs tests and you all did really well! Although you won’t be doing SATs this year we will be in touch with your high schools to tell them anything they need to know about you. This will help them to know which classes you will be in. Please don’t worry about which sets you will be in. High schools are very good at making sure you will be in the correct class – it’s not just about your SATs results.

I hope this helps to answer some of your questions. Please try not to worry!

Missing you all lots! Take care.

Love Miss Parry xxx

Easter Homework

Children in Year Six have already been given their Easter homework. Throughout the holiday, pupils should make their way through activity packs: E2, E3 and E4 from their Easter folders. They should also read and learn from booklets E1, E5 and E6. During the break, children can still access BugClub, Mathletics, Pobble, SpellAnywhere and TTRS to supplement their learning. 

Online lesson-based learning will re-commence at 8:45am on Monday 20th April..

Have a lovely break.

Mr. Robertson

Here's one of my favourite Easter songs from Faith Day in 2018, 'Remember Me'. Can you remember it?

Good luck and remember, if you have any problems, you can always use the blog to contact your Year Six teachers.

Fundraising for Robinwood

For the next week, Class Six will be fundraising at playtimes, in the hope of raising at least £100 towards their trip to Robinwood in May. This trip is very heavily subsidised and therefore the children think that this is a great way of showing their gratitude.

Winter Wonderland

In Class Six we have been really busy making Christmas cards, 2020 calendars, snowpeople and Christmas crackers. We've had a really great couple of days and we now have a very christmassy classroom, which we can enjoy for the next few weeks. We hope you enjoy looking at our photos.

Life in Leeds During World War II
 
On Wednesday 27th November, class six went to Thwaite Mill to learn about what life was like in Leeds during World War II. This work will help us with our topic after Christmas. We learnt all about how the mill was used to make putty during the Blitz, about the Homefront (including rationing) and about evacuation. We finished the day by making a pretend gas mask. It was a fantastic trip!

Coding Workshop

In class Six today, we had a special coding workshop, where we learnt how to use a range of apps, using a variety of codes and algorithms. The session was led by Mr. Harrison from JuniorJam. It was great fun. 

Road Safety

In class today, we were visited by Harriet from Leeds City Council, who talked to us all about the importance of traffic calming in our local area. We learnt about the cost of lots of different types of speed controls (crossings, speed bumps and speed cameras) and watched some upsetting videos which showed exactly what can happen when motorists are not fully concentrating on the road in front of them.

Tiramisu Time!

As part of our learning about Italy, Kenean's mum made a delicious Italian dessert for us all to enjoy. 

International Week - Italy

Class Six will be learning some facts about Italy this week. We started by doing some map work, where we focused on the difference between north and south Italy and labelled major cities and physical features. We then completed some Roman Numeral activities in numeracy after playtime. 

Bolton Abbey Rivers Trip

Class Six spent the day at Bolton Abbey, where they carried out a river study of the River Wharfe. The children created river maps out of natural resources and correctly identified lots of different river features. A great day! 

Brilliant Biographies

Class Six have spent the last three or four weeks learning how to write in a biographical style. Each child chose to research and write
about a chosen famous person. Today, we started to publish our work. We can't wait to put them on display around the classroom.

Black History Assembly - 'Inspirational Black Role People'

On Wednesday 2nd October, Class Six delivered a class assembly on the theme of Black History. This year our focus was on 'inspirational role models' and after acting out the roles played by Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, we went on to talk about famous black scientists and inventors from around the world, who have each made a huge difference to society. We finished by talking about the short life of Stephen Lawrence and how how every human deserves to be treated with fairness and respect. Thank you to all the parents who helped children to learn lines and to those who came along to watch our performance. 

Graduation!

Today the children from Class Six graduated from the University of Leeds after completing a fantastic science week with IntoUniversity. During the graduation ceremony, which was brilliantly attended by parents, the children delivered presentations all about their chosen character with a biological sciences background. We’ve had a wonderful week.

Thwaite Mill Evolution Trip
Delightful and Delicious DNA

This afternoon, we learnt all about DNA. We discovered that DNA is made up of four chemical base pairs and we then produced a strand of DNA in its twisted double helix shape, using a range of delicious sweets. The day ended with a quiz about DNA facts. Another great day at IntoUniversity.

Another wonderful morning of science
We’ve had yet another great session at IntoUniversity and this morning we have been completing our first secret mission: writing about four famous biological scientists who each played a vital role in the research behind evolution and inheritance. We have been studying Mary Anning, Charles Darwin, Rosalind Franklin and Rick Kittles. This afternoon we’ll be using sweets to make our own DNA!!

Famous contributors to biological sciences

This afternoon we split up into teams and completed a secret mission, preparing a piece of written work about a famous person who worked in the field of biological sciences and contributed a great deal to the study of Evolution and Inheritance. These pieces will be presented to an an audience at our graduation at the University of Leeds this Friday. 

SUPER SCIENCE - IntoUniversity - DAY ONE!

We've arrived at IntoUniversity Leeds East for the first day of our unit on Evolution and Inheritance. This morning the children are completing a carousel of activities on many different aspects of evolution, inheritance and adaptation. Children looked at how whales have adapted blubber over time to withstand freezing cold ocean temperatures. They also carried out a test where they taped their thumbs to a finger and carried out simple task (undoing buttons, tying laces and unscrewing bottles) to show how important all of our digits are to mankind. Another group completed the 'Evolution Revolution' quiz which enabled them to showcase their knowledge of evolutionary changes over time, with a key focus on plant and animal DNA. The final group learnt all about the genes and traits that we inherit from parents.
