Spring 2

 

Y6 stand up for the climate

The Year 6 pupils ended their ‘What is more important: Money or the Environment’ topic by attending a youth climate strike in Sheffield city centre. They had a chance to interview secondary school pupils who were attending the strike, as well as marching along and making their voices heard too. Well done to all of them!

Spring 1

Year 6 tree planting

Our topic this term has been 'What is more important - money or the environment?' and this week we had the chance to get involved in an environmental project in our local area. Working with Sheffield Parks and Countryside, the children planted around 400 new trees on Manor playing fields. A special thanks goes to Anderson Tree Care, who donated and delivered the mulch for free.

Year 6 SATs revision

This is a great link for all of our Year 6 children! They are already used to Corbett Maths, as we regularly complete their '5-a-day' tests, so please click on the link below to access all of the other content available on the website. There are videos and quizzes (with answers) to help on many aspects of the Year 6 curriculum. Hopefully our pupils will find it extremely useful!

Crucial Crew trip

Year 6 children went to Crucial Crew this term and came away much wiser for it! They engaged with eight different scenarios on the day, including 'First Aid', 'Fire Safety', 'Child Criminal Exploitation' and 'Knife Crime'. Perhaps the highlight of the day was the 'Magistrates Court' scenario where the children could partake in an actual sentencing of one of their classmates! A very important trip, as always.

Autumn 2

Trip to Abbeydale

Year 6 had a wonderful trip to Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet this term, as a part of their 'How has steel changed Sheffield?' topic. They got to tour around the site, learning all about the origins of the steel industry, as well as getting a chance to use lots of the machinery and tools that were used there. They learnt all about the workers and their lives, and saw in stark contrast the differences between the homes of the workers and the owners. It was a fantastic learning experience for everyone!

Y6 pair up to find the answers

As we all know, talking about a problem helps find a solution, and Year 6 have been applying this logic to their maths. 'Paired maths' gives the children a chance to talk a question through, see it from a different perspective and hopefully make it clearer. Some children have relished the opportunity to 'teach' their partner - a surefire way to show that you really understand your learning. Well done Y6!

Y6 find out who helps people in need

In RE, the children in Y6 have been investigating the various charities that work globally to help people in crisis. From Christian Aid to Islamic Aid, they have seen that, all over the world, there are people helping people. How wonderful.

Autumn 1

Y6 show some real drive

In Y6 we have been designing toy cars as part of our DT/Computing project. We have tested a range of toy cars that are available on the market and have created our own, battery driven, vehicles. Next term we will use crumble devices to program our cars to follow specific routes, but for now please just enjoy our cars racing each other!

Calling all Y6s!
