Welcome to Year 6!
Class Teachers: Mrs Digby, Miss West, Mrs Shaves, Miss Harvey and Mr Hardy
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.
In Year 6, the children have been exploring shape in maths.
Some children created a maths display; describing properties of shape and making their own nets.
Venn diagrams, with children’s own success criteria, were also used to assign shapes according to their properties.
We have been absolutely amazed at how well the children have settled in this half term. Their behaviour has been superb and they seem to have really enjoyed being back at school. Not only have they been working incredibly hard, they have been respectful, kind and supportive of us and each other.
Our history learning has been around WW2. We particularly enjoyed learning about evacuation and how children were sent to live with host families in the countryside to ensure they were safer. We were fascinated to learn that there are actual air raid shelters under our Sports Art Space. Each class wrote some wonderful first person recounts, imagining they were evacuees.
During our art unit, we printed patterns that were inspired by a range of modern artists. We designed our images, using the natural world for ideas, before using polystyrene tiles to print repeating patterns. We’re sure you’ll agree, our finished art work is just stunning!
A huge well done Y6s! All the teachers are so proud of you!
