In Year 6, we have begun the Summer Term with lots of revision for our national tests in mathematics and reading but we’ve also had lots of fun with our new topic. It is called, ‘It was acceptable in the ‘80s’ and we’ve already found out so much about this decade.
As part of their transition to Secondary School, Year 6 visited Prestatyn High School and took part in a variety of sporting activities including: bench ball, dodge ball, table tennis, dance and mat ball. A great time was had by all!
As part of their 1980s topic, Year 6 have been using chalk to create their names in a graffiti style.
Year 6 have been busy evaluating, designing and making cushions. They have started to make the cushions and have worked extremely hard as you can see.
Year 6 Spring Term
After a relaxing Christmas, Year 6 came back for a very interesting Spring term full of lots of events including: World Book Day, St. David’s Day, Sport Relief, Tales from Wales and let’s not forget THREE snow days!
Ruby, Leo and Connor who are part of Mr Fuller’s Sports Council helped him organise a Dance-a-thon for Sport Relief. It was a great day that was enjoyed by all.
As part of our Science topic during the Spring Term, Year 6 investigated the height of reaction from adding Mentos to fizzy drinks. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially watching Reuben trying to dodge being covered in cola!
Year 6 Autumn Term
During the Autumn term, the pupils were busy settling in to Year 6.
Throughout our topic of WWII the pupils used their numeracy skills to estimate, weigh and convert units of measure during a rationing activity.
The Year 6 pupils used exploration skills in science to make electrical circuits.
Year 6 visited DangerPoint in Talacre to learn about keeping safe in a range of situations. They had the opportunity to visit different parts of the DangerPoint Centre and were guided by one of the DangerPoint Rangers.
This year the Christmas Fair will be held at 3.30pm. Each class will be putting together items for their own Christmas Stall and we are always grateful for any items you may want to donate. This year your child’s class will be responsible for the:
If you would like to help, please begin to send your donations to school so that we can be sure there are enough items to create the Year 6 Christmas Stall. We are looking for items which are new and up to the value of around £2.00 that would be suitable for a boy or a girl.
Also, if you feel you will be able to help in any way – this could be during the term to help keep things in order, during the afternoon of the Christmas Fair to help set up the stalls or at the Fair itself to help run the stall – please contact the PTA so they can contact you to arrange the times and days you will be able to help. Any help is always really appreciated.
