All of the Year 6 team and Shotton Primary School are so proud of how far you have come...keep it up and try your best!!
6H have been to Wellfield Community School to participate activities focus img on extending their design and technology skills. The pictures below are from the first week of four. The class have a brilliant time and got the opportunity to experience what D.T may look like when they move onto to secondary school. Take a look at the pictures below.
Class Novel- Cosmic
We are really excited about our next novel - Cosmic. We can't wait to read it! The book is written by the author Frank Cottrell Boyce who none of us have read before. We hope we like just as much as our last novel which was Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz.
Spring term topic - Earthquakes and Volcanoes
In the Spring term, we will be looking at the causes and effects of earthquakes and volcanoes. You can research this topic over Christmas if would like to and share with us the information you have found out! At the end of the topic, we will be doing a piece of writing based on the things we have learned.
Look at the following images:
How do they make you feel?
Where in the world do you think these images have been taken?
Do you think people live near these places? How do you know?
Class Stars 11th November
Sean showing a great improvement and enthusiasm in Maths
Tia M for being a supportive peer and a positive attitude to learning.
Today, Monday 3rd October, we thought about the Jewish New Year. We discussed Jewish beliefs and traditions respectfully. During the afternoon, we though about how certain foods are prepared and carry specific meanings. Did you know that apples and bread are dipped in honey to represent a sweet new year to come? We thought about our wishes for the year to come. Not only did we think about our wishes but we thought about our sins. It is Jewish tradition to 'cast off' their sins. Since fishes eyes are always open, fish can symbolize the 'casting off' of sins. During assembly, we shared what we had done with the rest of school. At the end of the day we tasted apple dipped in honey!
Class Stars 30th September
Dean for always producing his best work.
Aidan for including prepositional and expanded noun phrases within his show sentences.
Macmillan Coffee Afternoon
We hosted a coffee afternoon to raise money for a very important charity, Macmillan. Thanks to some of our families for donating some lovely cakes and to the kitchen staff for making our favourite oatie biscuits to sell. Some of Y6 helped to run the charity event.
Show and not tell sentences.
We looked at how Anthony Horowitz uses show rather than tell to engage the reader. At the moment, Alex has entered the scrapyard and we can't wait to find out if he finds his uncle's car. Today, we used drama and freeze frame to capture how our bodies portray emotion. Take a look at our day. Our experiences today will help us to write show sentences tomorrow.
Class Stars 23rd September
Taylor for being motivated to learn as much as she can in each every Maths lesson this week.
Lewis Henderson for his well written character description of Mr Blunt.
We have begun our science topic 'Evolution and Inheritance'. We started by discussing what we thought inheritance means to a scientist. We worked in groups to discuss what inheritance looks like.
Class Stars 16th September
Tia M for trying her absolute hardest in class and wanting to the best she can be.
Layton for his super attitude to learning especially in Maths this week.
Harvest at St Saviours Church
We visited St Saviours Church to see the amazing generosity of our village. The 'home grown' fruits and vegetables filled the church with amazing colours and delicious smells. We had some interesting conversations about some of the produce. It was humbling to hear how the charity which the church supports help those less fortunate than us.
We have started our class novel...STORMBREAKER!
We love the spy theme and can't wait to find out what happens to Alex Rider. Some think he is kidnapped; others think he becomes a secret agent.
Our first Class Stars are...
Mia for her super, positive attitude and her willingness to help others.
Shay for his excellent reasoning in Mathematics.
We have been hard at work learning how to read numbers to 10 million and understand the place value of numbers and their relationships to each other. To help us understand we thought about the distance planets are away from the sun. We converted the measurements to a scale and plotted ourselves across the school field.
Celebrating 100 Roald Dahl's 100th birthday!
As a school we all celebrated Roald Dahl's 100th birthday by decorating our classroom doors to represent one of his stories. Our class decorated our door with 'The Witches'.
Move Up Day - Getting to know each other.
We had a great day getting to know each other. Not only did we tell each other about our families, interest and hobbies but what we thought makes a terrific teacher and a perfect pupil! Take a look at the pictures below.
