Year 6

Oaklands Residential

The children (and teachers!) had so much fun at Oaklands this week. There were many challenges, laughs and splashes as we immersed ourselves in the spectacular environment of Snowdonia where we conquered the gorge, climbed and abseiled mighty rock faces and paddled our canoes across the beautiful Llyn Padarn. 

 

  • Delamere fieldwork trip - Orienteering and Den-building/Teamwork – Tuesday July 11th
  • Secondary school visits – All children will have a visit from a member of staff from their secondary school as well as their induction day in July.
  • Leavers Assembly - Friday 7th July at 9:15am in school
  • PE Kit needs to be in school every day during the Summer term with a water bottle, hat or cap and sunscreen
  • Extra homework - thank you for your support with the additional homework that Y6 have been receiving in the lead up to SATs. The children have been told that they will have some time without homework after SATs to compensate for their extra work.

Children's Work from last term

Science

This term Year 6 have been classifying organisms and discovering which categories they are from. Year 6 have also been creating  branching diagrams to identify species of British butterflies and birds. They chose an animal to discover how differnet living organisms have been identified by scientists using all the steps, ruling out other animals that are different to them. Here are a couple of examples of our branching diagrams. Please click on them to take a closer look and use them to help you to identify some of our native British wildlife:
