Return to Children

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 with Miss Clifford, Mrs Wood and Ms Gallagher.
We have had a great start to the year and the children have displayed very positive attitudes to learning.
Our class are eager to push themselves and to be role models for the younger children.   In terms of the curriculum, we will be focusing particularly on building confidence in our learning and self-editing out work.
It is scientifically proven that mistakes make our brains grow so we will learn to celebrate our mistakes and learn from them!
We encourage the children to read for pleasure at least 5 times a week. As well as opening their worlds; being entertaining and growing imaginations, reading regularly will also greatly enrich vocabulary and develop comprehension skills.
Year 6 demands greater personal responsibility and we aim to develop the children’s independence in all aspects of the school day – sports kit, homework and time-keeping for example.
We are looking forward to teaching them over the year!

Christmas Science Enquiry!

As a way of developing our scientific enquiry skills, each year group took part in a Christmas themed science experiment. The children had to investigate dissolving candy canes, making decisions about the scientific questions they wanted to answer and deciding how best to carry out the experiment. It was fascinating seeing how the different liquids effected the speed at which the candy canes dissolved.
