Enterprise!! Sports Day!! Theatre production!!

This week in year 6 we have been preparing for the school fair by researching and developing our ideas for a successful and profitable stall. We have carried out market research and analaysed the data to ensure that our stall meets the needs of the paying public. We are all very excited and thoroughly enjoying the opportunity of being an entrepaneur for the day.

On Thursday it was Sports Day, we all competed in 5 events including a sprint, long distance run, jumping, wellie throw and an obstacle course. The parents and teachers had a tug of war too.

We have also had the amazing M&M theatre company perform their dramatisation of The Railway Children. Year 5 and 6 even had the chance to find out how the actors choreograph their performance, what happens backstage and how they prepare for their onstage appearance. As part of the workshop we had chance to take part in altering lighting, sound and how fast they can change costume (7 seconds).

Well Done Year 6

Hi Year 6,

Last week we completed our SATs. We would just like to say a huge well done to all of you. You all were a credit to the school and yourselves. We are very proud as your teachers to see the effort and determination you have shown throughout the term and hope you all enjoyed your well earned treat at the cinema and bowling.

In Art we made chalk pictures that show a WW2 scene ready for our new topic focusing on D-Day. We have also been planning for our leavers assembly with Mrs Parker in our music lessons. We have also looked at Sepsis Trust and charity work, choosing charities of our own to support.

Fun in the snow in Year 6!

Take a look at the pictures of our Year 6, making the most out of a snowy morning at Wood Fold!! Well done everyone for making it into school today!

This week in Year 6

In Maths this week we have looked at solving problems involving the calculation of percentages of whole numbers. Including percentages of 32%.

In English we have started reading our new book: Wonder written by R.J. Palacio. It is about a boy who suffers from a facial disfigurement. The story follows his emotional journey as he begins school for the first time. The book is written from various view points including himself and friends and family.

In Science we have looked at the Theory of Evolution by Charles Darwin and how we have evolved over time and how animals have adapted to their environment in order to survive. This was called Natural selection.

This week we also had World Book Day in which we spent a lot of time discussing and comparing books with each other. We even had a hot chocolate and biscuits as we read them! We have been given a great selection of new books to read and reading records to take home and keep our reading experiences logged.

This week Y6T whad the best attendenance in KS2 with a score of 98.5%

World Book Day!

Hi Year 6T,

As you are aware today is ‘World Book Day’ and I would love to find out what you enjoy reading. This can be a short blog about the book; why it’s enjoyable; who are the main characters? What is the plot?…..ssshhh don’t give too much away!

My favourite book is: Die Trying by Lee Child. The book follows a Ex Militaty cop named Jack Reacher as he struggles to solve the mystery of a kidnapping. He finds himself chained in a dark van along with an unknown woman, racing across America; Reacher doesn’t know why they’ve been kidnapped. The woman claims to be FBI. She’s certainly tough enough. But at their remote destination, will raw courage be enough to overcome the hopeless odds.

We rate Alex Rider!

Hi Year 6,

It was great to see how you all thoroughly enjoyed reading Stormbreaker, I know lots of you have started to read the sequel Point Blanc and intend to read the whole series. It is fantastic to see you being so inspired by our class context.

We really enjoyed seeing your enthusiasm for circuits and all things electrical when you constructed tripwires and pressure pads.

Our new context is very different but equally enjoyable -  we hope.

Mr Thompson and Miss Kelly

Welcome to Y6T!

I hope you have all enjoyed your first week back; I certainly have!
We are well into our class novel: Skulduggery Pleasant. What do you all think about it so far?
I am looking forward to reading your descriptions of the new characters you are creating- will they fit into the genre of Skulduggery Pleasant?
