Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 class page

Mrs Lyatt ( and Mrs Kumari.

End of term!

What a great final week of term Year 6 have had. A sports afternoon, pizza, water fight, leaving assembly and a tea party - it has been busy, emotional but so much fun! Year 6, you are such a fantastic class and have been such great role models to the other students in school. I am so glad that we were able to return to school, during what has been an incredibly unusual time, and complete your time at Radford. You should be incredibly proud of all you achieved whilst at Radford and I wish you all the best as you move on to high school.

Week beginning 22nd June 2020

What a great week it has been! We managed to complete our orienteering that was rained off last week. The children had to find the sign language symbols and work out the sentence. It was great fun and the children all managed to complete the course. This week is National School Sports week so we have linked our lessons to sport. In maths the children colllected data, using tennis skills, to find the mean, mode and median. The children completed a maths investigation to locate the missing Winbledon umpire and in theme we reasearched and wrote factfiles and biographies of a famous sports person. To end the week, the children took part in a range of sports activities on the field, it was great to see 6A and 6B competing against themselves and each other!

Week beginning 15/06/20

This week, Year 6 have been completing lots of activities all on the theme of Disability Awareness. On Monday, 6A and 6B met Dan, a secondary teacher from the North West. Dan explained his disability to the children and the children were able to ask Dan questions about how his ability has effected his life, from childhood to current day. I was really proud of the thoughtful questions that the children asked, the children were so engaged throughout the conversation. Following this, the children learnt the British Sign Language alphabet and used this to challenge their friends to spell out words. In the afternoon we watched the film Wonder, based on the novel by RJ Palacio, which we used during our English lessons. Sadly our sign language orienteering was rained off at the end of the week, however the children will be doing this next week when the sunshine returns! We have also been busy making clay hearts as part of our Science lesson on the circulatory system.

WB 08.06.20

It has been fantastic to have Year 6 back for a full week of learning this week. The children have been busy learning about the Suffragettes, recapping maths skills, completing artwork, learning about the circulartory system in science and trying to 'escape the classroom' during the Escape Room challenge! 

To access home learning please select from the correct week below. I will also use these sub-folders to write daily instructions and to display any photos or work that I receive.

Science - Electricity. Year 6 worked hard to work out how to complete a variety of electrical circuits, including lighting a bulb using a switch and running a motor

Learning Celebration - what a super afternoon we had for our VE Day party! The children learned about Alan Turing and his vital role in breaking the enigma code, the children attempted to break codes using a Caesar Cipher, sang wartime songs and enjoyed party food. Thank you to all the parents and family members who joined us for the afternoon, thank you also for the generous contributions of food for our VE party!

Computing - Year 6 have been enjoying their computing unit on Film Making. The children are in the process of filming documentaries about school such as homework, school dinners and school uniform.

English - the children worked hard planning their writing about the Blitz.

Design Technology - as part of our World War 2 theme, year 6 have been learning all about Anderson Shelters. The children designed and created their own Anderson shelter models, they thought carefully about suitable materials to use and how to join the materials. The children all worked hard and produced some excellent models!

Food Technology - year 6 have had a busy time during their masterclass mornings this half term. They have been learning the skills of slicing, grating, weighing and following a recipe. They have used these skills to make a variety of rationing foods including carrot cookies and chocolate oat cakes.

Bewdley Museum - Year 6 had a fantastic trip to Bewdley Museum as part of their theme topic on World War 2. The children were 'evacuated' to the museum for the day, where they experienced what life was like during World War 2 - they even got to go in a real Anderson Shelter! A big thank you to parents for the incredible evacuee outfits.

Bewdley Newspaper Reports: Children wrote newspaper reports for their homework after their visit to Bewdley Museum. Please read these fantastic examples to find out more about the visit!

Faith Roadshow - Radford Semele hosted a faith roadshow, welcoming visitors from a number of different faiths. The children enjoyed learning about the religions and having the opportunity to explore the various features of each of the religions.
