Mrs Harding and Mrs Fidler would like to welcome you to 6H. Year 6 is an important and exciting year and we have a range of fantastic learning experiences.
This term we will be studying the Victorians and plan to visit the fabulous Victorian street at Salford University Museum. We will also have the chance to study the Shakespeare play Macbeth and are fortunate to have a visit by the Young Shakespeare Company to bring this famous work alive.
In Science we will start by looking at the fascinating topic of Evolution and Inheritance and later in the term will learn all about Electricity. Other topics include: football and netball in Games; Me and My Relationships in PSHE; designing Peace Posters the Lyons competition in Art; and practising our sewing skills in DT.
Games: Our games lessons are every Tuesday and Wednesday and as all our PE sessions will be outdoors, children need to ensure that they have the appropriate kit in school, including a hoodie/jumper and jogging bottoms for the colder months that are approaching.
Homework: This will be given out on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday.
Spellings: These will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
Planners: All children have been given a planner which need to be brought into school every day. In their planners, the children record their daily reading and their weekly spellings. We ask that parents will sign planners each week and we expect that children in year 6, read for at least twenty minutes every evening.
We are looking forward to updating this page to show all the fantastic learning that you will be doing over the year!
Class 5T having been studying Forces in Science lessons this term. They having been carrying out Investigations looking at the relationship between gravity and mass by using Force metres to measure Newtons. They have also studied the effects of air resistance on how quickly paper spinners fall.
Year 5 were lucky enough to have a visit from Rochdale Council’s recycling team. The class learned which items could be recycled, and the process by which our recycled items are sorted . The children were all given a free reusable water bottle for taking part and also had the chance to receive a recycling wrist band for completing a short game online with their parents at home.
