Year 6

World War 2

Last Tuesday afternoon (23 January) year six were lucky enough to have Mr Simmonds come in and tell us lots of interesting facts about World War 2.  We learnt a lot of things about what life was like in Britain at the beginning of the War.  We even got to see the portions of rations that one person got for a week (it was extremely small!).    This was a great experience and we would love to have him come in and teach us more about the Second World War.

Yr 6 anti bullying 2

Anti-Bullying Week

Every day we were learning small parts about anti-bullying so by the end of the week we were very informed.  We made anti-bullying posters for the year 5 competition.  In big write we wrote a story about bullying.   Year 5 came into our class and taught us about what bullying is and how to solve it.  As a class we thought of ways of how to prevent bullying from happening.  We incorporated anti-bullying in other lessons.  In English we wrote a diary entry as either a bully or a victim.

In maths we have been looking at fractions.  We thought about how we could turn an improper fraction into a mixed fraction.  We then used our knowledge to help us when we added fractions.   Quite often after we had added the fractions we found they became improper fractions.

Yr 6 Heart


We have been thinking about how our heart rate increases when we do exercise.  We had to choose how we were going to plan and do our investigations.  The four topics that we chose were: Does your age affect your heart rate when you do exercise?  Does your height affect your heart rate when you do exercise?  Does the type of exercise affect your heart rate?  Does your gender afftect your heart rate after you've done exercise?


In year 6 we have been reading a book called 'Eye of the Wolf'.  We have been thinking about the characters' thoughts and feelings.  During English we thought about the characters and decided if we liked or disliked them.  We had to explain why we liked or disliked them.


In science we have been learning about the circulatory system.  This includes how the heart and lungs work together transferring oxygenated blood around the body.


In literacy we've been reading a book called Kensuke's Kingdom.  We have been focusing on Michael's feelings throughout the book so far.  We received a letter from Michael and he was asking for advice on whether he should sail around the world or not. We then pretended to by Agony Aunts and replid providing solutions for his dilemma.
