The Y6 team is Mr Bramley and Mrs Vernon, who are supported by Mrs Stock and Mr Smithson.
We are looking forward to working with the Y6 children and are looking forward to a successful year ahead. There are many opportunities to embrace in Year 6 and we look forward to sharing these on the year group page.
On the last day of term we invited the fabulous Lily Hammond in to school. Lily is a local artist who previously won the inspirational idols award at our
winners ceremony in December.
Lily has a passion for painting animals and therefore came to run an art workshop on painting rainforest birds as this linked with our explore topic.
Lily firstly taught the children about how to form the body shapes of birds using simple shaped. Then each child went about the task in their own creative way. Some chose to paint a realistic portrait; others choosing to collage materials with abstract backgrounds. The results were spectacular and are now displayed in our very own art gallery in the Year 6 corridor.
Be sure to check them out 👍🏻😀
To link with our science topic, the children in Year 6 are making their own clay heart model. As you can see from the picture they are coming on a treat.
Year 6 loved their visit from George Marriott, one of our winners from last terms award ceremony. George is training to become a Maths teacher and this Maths challenge he set for our children was amazing. All children engaged and excitied about Maths.
It was great to see our Year 6s so enthusiastic to write their own rainforest descriptions based on our work surrounding ‘The Great Kapok Tree’. Similes, metaphors, personification, the children included many writing techniques to make their descriptions a great success!
As part of our new science topic ‘Healthy Heart’, the children learnt about the 4 components that make up blood: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, plasma. They made their own model of blood and created sets of instructions using Pic Collage.
