Year Six

Year 6 had a great day learning valuable life skills at Crucial Crew. We have taken part in activities involving fire safety, road safety, how to travel safely on buses, how to avoid being involved in knife crime and what it is like in a courtroom.

This week in Science, Year 6 children have been learning about what concave and convex lenses are. They also investigated how light behaves in them in comparison to a plane mirror.

Year 6 have been learning techniques for using watercolour pencils. We will be using them to create pictures of Whitby in the style of Caroline Appleyard.

We had a wonderful evening with our Year 6 children at their prom and words do not do justice to their breathtaking outfits….there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when they arrived in all their glory. Thank you….our/ your children well and truly shone with pride this week. Many thanks to Wickersley Partnership Trust [...]
As part of our Mexico topic, Year 6 have been using oil pastels to create self-portraits in the style of Frida Kahlo. They are fabulous!
Year 6 have been getting ready to make their own films based on the novel 'Holes'. After creating a storyboard, we have made scenery, characters, and props. We are very excited to start filming next week.

PC Paul visited Year 6 to talk about online safety, which included age-related apps and cyber bullying.

Year 6 have worked in the woods as part of their Mexico topic. They made sugar skulls out of natural items collected and enjoyed cooking churros. And to mark Stephen Lawrence Day, they have been thinking about the importance of his legacy.

Year 6 were asked to design and create an educational board game that included questions and a 3D shape. These are some very exciting looking games we can’t wait to play. Well done!
