Welcome to Year 6!
Class Teachers: Miss Shotton, Miss Saunders, Miss Hubbard, Miss West and Mr Hardy
Year 6 have recently launched our very own Twitter page so that we can share our wonderful learning. Why not follow us @y6southeygreen.
At Southey Green, we promise to provide our children with 6 unique experiences in each year group. We call these ‘Southey’s Super Six’. These tasks give our children something to look forward to each year and in places, provide an opportunity that the children may not have previously had.
Take a look at our topics for this coming year. We intend to teach the children a wide range of skills alongside an array of knowledge for each unit. There may be slight changes throughout the year depending on weather, availability and other opportunities that arise.
Autumn Best Bits!
Look through some of the pictures of us at Eden Camp! What a fascinating trip it was where we saw our history learning come to life! The different experiences there helped us to imagine what life may have been like during World War 2. We saw many vehicles and machinery, learnt about the role of women during the war and experienced areas which simulated the Blitz.
Year 6 Printing
Take a look at our printing skills! Carving the lino was quite challenging but we persevered and were very proud of our final product!
Spring Best Bits
In writing, the children have been producing their own non-chronological reports based on animals they researched. As you can see, they have worked hard on sentence openers, using technical language and cohesion.
In science, our topic is ‘Evolution and Inheritance’. In the pieces you can see how the children have identified the animal from fossils and considered how animals have changed over time.
In our ‘Climate Change’ topic we have looked at renewable energy sources and how climate activism is having an impact on the world.
In art, the children have been exploring perspective and have produced some fantastic pieces by manipulating the ‘vanishing point’ and considering proportion.
