Spring 2024

Class Heroes 2023
 
We have chosen 7 individuals who we believe reflect our school values of respect, teamwork, happiness, pride, honesty and resilience.
 
Each class has been assigned a hero and the children will be finding out about them throughout the year. We will explore ways in which our hero has demonstrated our values, their achievements and legacies. Watch this space for updates. 
 
In Year 6, our hero is Maya Angelou. You can see all of the class heroes on the poster below and our special poster about Maya too.

Year 6 News - 26th January 2024

 

Year 6 have made a good start to 2024.

 

Over the last few weeks, we have been exploring the Ancient Maya civilisation in history, understanding just how long this historical period lasted for and evaluating some of the challenges they faced living in the rainforest as well as the solutions they came up with. We found that they were very innovative and advanced in their thinking.

 

In science, we have looked at the differences between renewable and non-renewable energy sources (which we will also return to in Geography later this year) as well as starting our unit of work on light. We have had a go at drawing ray diagrams in order to demonstrate light travelling in straight lines, explored parts of the eye and understanding the difference between luminous and non-luminous objects.

 

In English, we are almost finished with our novel, Private Peaceful, and are devastated at the prospect of ending the story; however, we really want to find out what happens to Tommo and Charlie! It’s very conflicting!

 

We have also been exploring the ballad “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes. We held a debate to discuss whether Tim was really the one to blame for the deaths of Bess and the Highwayman as well as understanding the features of a diary entry so that we could write one from the point of view of a character involved within the storyline.

 

The other day, we enjoyed a visit from employees from National Rail as well as the British Transport Police so that we could better understand how to keep ourselves and others safe around railway lines. We were amazed by the speed and power that trains actually possess and know that it is never ok to cross a railway track unless it is safe to do so at a designated crossing area.
