Year 6

Hello everyone! Welcome back we hope you have all had a lovely and safe Christmas break. We look forward to seeing you all on Teams for online learning. Below is our timetable for this week.

Welcome to Year 6!

 

Our second topic this year is South America and this will take us through to May. In this topic we will be looking at the geography of South America from the rainforests of Brazil to the Atacama desert in Chile. From the Inca ruins of Macchu Pichu to the Favelas of Rio de Janeiro. For reading we will be looking at The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Rauf.

 

Mr Bennett and Miss Darnowska.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

Brazil topic work

In Science, our new topic is light, where we have been investigating how light enables us to see. We have looked at how light travels in straight lines, as well as how light is reflected when we made periscopes.

Come and explore our classroom! 

Our classroom immerses us in our topic and we'd love for you to explore all our work and our fantastic projects that all of you have made at home!

As we started the second half term, Year 6 held a topic day about the evacuation of children during the Second World War. Children dressed up as evacuated children and were given a letter telling them they would be evacuated and where to. Children then worked together to find out all about the place they were evacuated and prepare a presentation to show the whole class.
Remembrance Day is an important part of our World War topic. Even though we spent it in isolation, children created their own art based on the design of the poppy. We also shared a 2 minute silence over Microsoft Team before exploring the causes that lead to the end of the war. 
For Anti-Bullying week Year 6 looked at the issues surrounding Cyber Bullying and during our time in self isolation we created posters promoting the message of anti-bullying.

Don't forget our 'This Is Me' statements. At St Francis these statements are the type of learners we want our students to be.

This Is Me

I am happy.

I am ambitious.

I am confident.

I am a good citizen.

I can be anything.

I try new things.

I am resilient.

I am curious.
