And you are VERY welcome! Please feel free to come along and spend some time in our Year 6 classroom. Why not come to see what a maths lesson is like, or a writing lesson? It's a good idea to call the school first to check that we are doing a relevant lesson when you are available but, as a general rule, we follow the Year 6 timetable as given in the Year 6 information folder below. We look forward to seeing you...
REMEMBER TO SCROLL DOWN TO SEE ALL OF THE CONTENT ON THE YEAR 6 PAGE
As GPDR legislation came into force on 25th May 2018, we are no longer allowed to engrave pupils' names onto trophies etc without the consent of parents. As we do not wish to affect the surprise element of the Pride of St John's Awards Evening, we are asking the parents of ALL pupils invited to the ceremony to give their consent in the event that their child may be awarded an engraved trophy. Without parental consent, the pupil will still receive their shield or trophy but it will not be engraved with their name. Please only use this consent form if you have received a letter stating that your child has been invited to the awards ceremony. If you have received a letter, please reply to this email stating that you give consent for us to pass your child's name to the engravers so that the relevant shield or trophy can be engraved prior to the award evening. All other pupils invited to the awards ceremony will be awarded a teachers certificate. Many thanks for your help and support. Mr Clarke
ART NOUVEAU STAINED-GLASS
As part of our "Titanic" topic, Year 6 have designed their own Art Nouveau Stained-glass windows inspired by those aboard The Ship of Dreams. This beautiful artwork, designed by Anna, was chosen by Year 6 as the one artwork which showed evidence of all of the required skills:
a) To use a grid to ensure the best placement of all design elements
b) To create an image united by the use of symmetry, natural elements and controlled flowing lines
c) To use an effective but limited palette
d) To bind each coloured element with an outline of "lead".
e) To be inspired by images from Titanic and from the Art Nouveau period
f) To use the space provided effectively and inspire and engage the viewer.
WELL DONE ANNA!
NUMERACY - Shape enquiry.
Year 6 used these shape cards to produce a range of different shapes and patterns. During their discussions with their partners, they were able to use a huge amount of shape vocabulary and expand their knowledge of 2D shapes and their features. Well done Year 6.
Year 6 took part in the first of our Skip2bfit challenges today, and they all loved it. The challenge is to improve the amount of skips each child can do in 2 minutes over the next six weeks. Our highest scorer this time was Lewis with a remarkable 218 skips! Well done everybody.
Take a look at this excellent artwork by budding Year 6 artist, Gabriel. Well done Gabe.
