Year 6 Class News
Spring Term 2
Ourâ¯Wowsâ¯andâ¯Wellbeingâ¯this term was Community Cohesion. We are aiming to collect donations to support our local charity: Homeless Action in Barnet. So far, we have had lots of discussions on what it means to be homeless, why people may be homeless, the different types of homelessnessâ¯andâ¯what it might feel like to be homeless. We have also researched what we could collect to have the most impactâ¯andâ¯have started to create our campaign to raise awareness. We will set up the collection next half-term!
Spring Term 1
In Year 6 Wows and Wellbeing, we have been cooking! The children made Vegan Lentil Meatballs with Marina Sauce and enjoyed the challenging recipe. Next, we tackled the Year 6 Festive Friday stalls. The children enjoyed making rules and signs for their stalls and enjoyed running their own tiny business!
Year 6 have been learning the safety rules of cooking in a kitchen and have devised a delicious recipe and discussed the method of preparing and cooking the dish.
We will be continuing this in Autumn 2 and cannot wait to sample our creations.
Summer Term 2
The Year 6 children have had a very busy term and have worked incredibly hard in class. The first part of the term was an intense push to ensure that all of the children were comfortable and happy with everything that they needed to know for their SATS tests, which took place earlier in May. We were so very proud of their hard working approach; both before the SATs and during the week itself.
To celebrate all of their resilience and hard work, we went to Friary Park for an afternoon picnic with cricket games, playground climbing, ice cream and juice. It was a lovely afternoon. The classes are now busy piecing together their very impressive Matilda stage production with singing, dancing and acting being heard up and down the school corridors, whenever they are in rehearsal. We cannot wait to see the final shows.
Summer Term 1
Year 6 have had a very busy term in school. In our 'Wows and Wellbeing' lessons, we have taken on a PSHE focus looking at friendships, relationships and online behaviours which has helped some of us remember how to behave nicely online as well as in person. In class, we have been studying so hard towards our SATs tests which are just a few weeks away now and lots of us are coming in to school in the Easter holidays for some extra help and practice. In Science, we have been trying really hard to weave practical experiments into every lesson and these photos show our recent bug hunt in the school's lovely forest area. We examined various species and carried out our own observations and write ups about them.
