Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

 

Our Reflection Area

Our reflection area focuses on our school value of Love. We have taken time to consider the little ways we can show love to each other every day and the ways others show love to us too.

Our class book for this term

As part of our topic - Do the Right Thing - we are reading Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce. The boys, Damian and Anthony, face an interesting challenge in deciding what is right and wrong.

What have we been learning in Y6?

R.E.

Connecting our ideas and writing 'Dear England' letters:

This work by Y6 was inspired by the book, ‘Dear England’ by Stephen Cottrell, the Archbishop of York.

We know that every person very special and equally important. It has made us think about whether we always really believe that to be true and whether we always behave in a way that shares that message.

We have recently been considering Creation and the message in Psalm 8 about stewardship: we have been given great authority which we realised means we also have great responsibility. But the world is more than just the planet – it is the people too. We learn from the past and it should inspire us to make a difference to the world for the future. In preparing for our letters, we thought about this idea and how we should like the future to look if we learn from the mistakes that have been made before and that we all might make now.

We enjoyed reading extracts from the book. When we put our ideas together, we realised there were many links between what God is like, what Jesus taught and what we would like our future to look like. As a result, we wrote our own letters to England, to say what we are grateful for and to share what our hopes are for the future.

We sent our letters to the Archbishop of York and were delighted to receive a very encouraging reply from him.

Creation and Cosmology: Conflicting or Complementary?

We explored the range of opinions people may have. What do Christians believe? How does the work of scientists affect their understanding of God? What is our responsibility in relation to the world? These are some of the questions we have considered.

DT - Healthy Snacks. As part of our topic, Do the Right Thing!, we have adapted recipes to make them more healthy by reducing sugar, replacing refined sugar and flour with better options, and considered how to promote these tasty treats. Watch this space for photos of the finished products!

Design Technology - creating strong structures, linked to our work on the Industrial Revolution and how the Black Country changed during this time.

Mental Health and Well-being Support

 

Below are some documents relating to an online  support service called Kooth. 

 

Kooth provides a safe and secure means of accessing mental health and well-being support designed specifically for young people aged between 11 and 18 years old.  Mrs Vann, Mr Garratt and Mrs Kean have just completed some training with Kooth and thought it might be helpful for some of our young people.  Take a look at the information.
