Welcome to Class 6

 

Work hard, be kind and amazing things will happen - Conan O'Brien.  Work hard, be kind and amazing things will happen - Conan O'Brien.

Class Vision 2021-2022

We are a positive class filled with kind and respectful people who care for each other and the school environment.  We enjoy our lessons and have fun all of the way!  We try to be resilient and help others to succeed.  We work hard to make sure that we all have lots of happy memories of our last year at primary school.  We persevere, even when things seem tough.  We are polite to everyone in our school.  We are focussed on our goals.  We are fair, patient and sensible. 

We are year 6.

Challenge

The Demon Headmaster

This is our first book in Year 6 and we read it at home over the summer holidays.

Have a look below at some of the alternative title pages we designed:

 

Maths

Please speak to me if you have lost your log in details!  Remember - they should be in your reading record, your jotter and your maths book too!

Science

The photographs below show us testing whether the length of a wire affects how brightly a bulb will shine.  We used tissue paper to ensure that our results are accurate.

In Year 6, we need to consider the "degree of trust" you can have in our results.

Our experiments:

are Objective are Accurate have Reproducibility have Consensus have a reliable Sample Size
We are honest and don't try to change our results to make them fit our prediction. We work carefully and give our experiment our full attention. We can reproduce the experiment again and should get the same results. Each result we find is similar to our other results...and if it isn't, we find out why. The more data we have, the more likely it is to show the real picture.

How do we keep in touch?

School Jotter app - we use this app solely for messages for the whole school.  It is updated by Mrs Millar, the headteacher.

Class Dojo - I use this to send messages to all year 6 parents and to reward the class.  I also use the "Story" on Class Dojo when I want to send pictures of what we have done, but only with the class.  Dojo enables us to have 1:1 conversations, parent to teacher.

School webpage - here you will find links to lots of useful resources.  As this page can be seen beyond the school, I only update the page with general examples of work.

Letters - I try not to send paper copies home, but where I have too, you will usually be able to find a replacement copy on the webpage (see below!).

Keeping Safe Young Voices

In Year 6, we have a visit from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue, to educate them about the importance of fire safety in the home and how to avoid accidental fires.

 

Their website, https://www.derbys-fire.gov.uk/community/schools not only has all of the resources linked to their work, but also links to railway safety, water safety, electrical safety, road safety, carbon monoxide safety and keeping active (mind and body).  It is well worth a look.

Use the menu in the top right hand corner to access the relevant section for pupils or parents.

Children can access the Music Room using the access code which I have sent via ClassDojo and Seesaw.

Choir T-shirts are available to everyone in the choir. If you decide not to purchase a Choir T-shirt we ask that a white t-shirt is worn instead.

More information about tickets for parents will be sent via ClassDojo.

Knowledge Organisers

A knowledge organiser is a document that lists the important facts – not practical skills – that pupils should know by the end of a unit of work. At home, you can use it as a quizzing tool, to help pupils boost their recall of key knowledge.

We currently use them in maths, science, history and geography.
