Today we visited Crucial Crew at Hellaby, the children had a fun day taking part in different scenarios that teach and show them how to keep themselves and others safe at home, school and in the community. They have now experienced what happens in a magistrates court, learnt to put an injured person in the recovery position and NOT to charge their electronic devices overnight or under their pillow!
Today we celebrated just how much progress the Y6's have made in their learning this term. We looked at their individual, personal progress in different subjects and celebrated those children who have worked extremely hard to ensure they are continuously striving to reach their full potential. As you can see from the photographs so many children have been awarded a progress card - we can't wait to see how much more progress you will make during the next term!
What a wonderful morning! Our first parent workshop of the year and what a fantastic time we had. The children were given pieces of clay and challenged to create a sculpture of one of Darwin's finches. With a bit of perseverance, moulding, kneading and detailing the children made some amazing clay models with support from their adults. As you can see from the pictures a great time was had by all - despite the mess!
Thanks to all parents/carers who attended this morning, we can't wait for the next workshop already!
This week our golden Rule was be honest. Lola-Mae and Hayden were our winners this week; they have been following all of our golden rules and have been particularly honest about work or learning they have found difficult, asking for support or help to ensure they are continuing to meet their full potential. Well done, keep it up!
This week we have been lucky enough to receive some brand new bean bags and cushions for our wonderful reading area! We love reading so much in Year 6 that some children chose to stay in at playtime and enjoy their current book in our comfy, cosy and quiet reading area!
Check back soon to see how else we incorporate our reading area in to our learning.
Since we have been learning about how animals evolve over time and how their surroundings, climate and habitat affect their development, we decided to create our own new species of animal!
We looked at the different animal classifications and what determines each, then using what we know and our imagination we created completely new creatures who could all be classified!
Look at our new species below - can you identify which animal(s) they might have evolved from?
This week we have worked hard to create and perform our final class assembly at High View! We worked in small groups to create presentations about all the work we have done so far in year 6. Even though we have only been in Year 6 for five weeks, we have learnt and achieved a lot! Our assembly included presentations on a variety of subjects; PSHE, computing, science, geography, history, maths, art and literacy work! We even had a drama group who worked together incredibly to write and perform a short play to help our audience gain an understanding of the life and works of Charles Darwin. Alongside our amazing acting we learnt two songs to enhance our assembly - have a listen below!
Our Golden Rule winners this week were Isabel and Lexie. Both girls have been working incredibly hard to follow all of our golden rules however their listening skills are supporting them to achieve their full potential and be able to make superb progress in all areas of their learning. Well done girls, keep it up - we can't wait to see what you achieve throughout the year.
Our Golden Rule winners for this week were Alex and Olivia. They are definitely two of our 'always children' but had shown just how kind and helpful they could be!
In computing, we have been coding. Linking it to our topic, we have designed a program that allows Charles Darwin's ship, the HMS Beagle, to travel to the Galapagos Island. Some of us, have added a finch flying, sounds and words. They are amazing!
