Our Y6S journey begins…
6S have settled in well to life in Year 6. As the school seniors, we’ve already taken on additional responsibilities in class and all around the school, including roles as STAR monitors and members of the School Council and Junior Leadership Team.
Our term began with Y6 using our summer project to become arachnologists- an expertise that that we put to good use in creating new spider species to inspire our writing. We learned how to draw realistic and cartoon spiders too.
Europe was the focus for our geography, and as well as learning the names of the countries, and using map skills, we also learned some European dances and played The Final Countdown on the ukulele.
Our team came 3rd out of 9 schools in the Hope Academy Maths Challenge and a group of us also took part in a photography experience. Many of us have joined lunchtime and after-school clubs.
Our class novel has kept us gripped all term. Sorrow line by Niel Bushnell (our first reading patron) is a thrilling tale of a boy, who finds he has the capacity to travel to other times. Our class word count is 740,347 words, which means we will become word millionaires next term.
We ended the term with Bug Week: a brilliant Creepy Crawly show; an inspiring talk with author Matt Carr; the book bus and hot-chocolate at the Big Bedtime Story. What an eventful term it has been!
