Welcome to 6S!
Your teacher is Mr. Yexley
6s began the year by creating their Class Charter to represent the values of both the school and how we would like the class to work this year. The linked hands reflect our ambition to work together as a team and support one another.
YOUNG SHAKESPEARE COMPANY
We began the year with another superb 'Macbeth' workshop which we used as the starting point for our first topic.
Year 6 visit to RAF Duxford October 2018
To start our World War Two topic, Year 6 visited the airfield at Duxford. One of the highlights was meeting a pilot of a Spitfire who explained how it worked and how fast it could go. We were then treated to a flying display over the airfield!
The children also explored the rest of Duxford, finding out about World War Two which will really help in the weeks to come.
Year 6 visit to the Imperial War Museum October 2018
Both classes spent the day at the museum looking at the incredible stories of brave people who have won the Victoria Cross and the George Cross.
As part of our topic, we also spent time in the 'Family at War' gallery, investigating life in London during World War Two.
We decided that we wanted to improve our measuring skills and used a number of practical exercises to do this.
Brettenham Reading Day
By dressing up and running a reading Marathion, the day raised over £500 to buy new books for the classrooms. It was a huge success and celebrated everyone's commitment to such an important part of the curriculum.
Many congratulations to Bushra, Elif and Margarida for 100% attendance since the start of the year!
Year 6 art
Sadly, wars continue to have a huge impact upon people and 6s wanted to create some art to reflect this. We used old newspapers and silhouettes of lost figures to create these impressive collages.
Beat box workshop
We were very lucky to have the chance to work with beatboxer Maijker who taught the class how to create some amazing sounds and rhythms.
