Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 have started the year with a positive attitude to their learning. In September, Year 6 had their first ever sleep over in school! The children arrived back at 6pm and headed straight outside to enjoy lots of Forest school activities (organised by Sam Orme) Our first half term topic was ‘Survival:’ and the children had to identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.
The children helped to organise the Macmillan Coffee Morning helping the younger children to select cakes and £301.40 was raised in total.
Year 6 enjoyed performing Dance with the Leyland Sports Partnership and performed their Dance to Parents and Grandparents.
The children have also enjoyed reading ‘Daffodil Raiders’ by M.J. Thompson. The children re-enacted the daffodil raid, wearing balaclavas and tiptoeing past Mrs Coulton’s office to escape from school without being seen. The children also had a class ‘Cupcake and Tea for 33’ and the donations made went to the Marie Curie Charity, a total of £67.60 was raised.
Our topic this half term is ‘Britten’s Got Talent.’ We are looking at the work of Benjamin Britten and comparing his music with pop music today. Year 6 have looked at the lyrics of ‘What a wonderful World’ by Louis Armstrong and changed the lyrics to ‘What a wonderful School’ and recorded their version in the ICT suite.
