Year 6

It's finally arrived!

 

At last, the end of the summer holidays and the start of a new term...

Hooray, we hear the parents cry.....

 

The Year 6 team are ready for action.

Mr Fisher, Mrs Martin, Mrs Skinner and our new member, Mrs Afolabi, will lead the children through the excitement and perils of the final chapter of Northwood life.

Some areas of study that are coming your way.

 

Light and Shadows

Living Things and their Habitats

The Mayan Civilization

Mood and Atmosphere in Art

 

PE is on Wednesdays for Year 6, but please ensure that correct PE kit is in school all the time in case we feel like some exercise on a different day.

The Mathletics and Reading Eggs programs should be up and running soon, so log in and practise some Maths and Reading whenever you can.

GOOD LUCK

TO ALL OUR LEAVING YEAR 6 PUPILS

AS THEY START THEIR NEW SCHOOLS

EVOLUTION

We made a 'toilet roll timeline' to look at how scientists think life on Earth has evolved. We found out that they think humans have only been around for a very short period of time - the last few cm of a very long piece of toilet roll paper. 

HISTORY OF EARTH TIMELINE

We made it !! The SATS are finished.

 

Well done to all of Year 6 for their hard work, particularly in the last few weeks.

 

Also a big THANK YOU to all the staff involved with providing the 'Breakfast club' last week; it really gave us a sense of togetherness and set us up well for the tests.

Here are some photos from BOOK WEEK - better late than never !

Happy New Year !

 

A gentle reminder that Year 6 pupils get weekly homework sheets and, if possible, are expected to login in regularly to 'Mathletics' and 'Reading Eggs' to keep up to date with work set or to practice any areas that need further support. If you have forgotten your login please ask in class.

ELECTRICITY INVESTIGATIONS

 

We've been looking at variables in Science experiments -

Independent (what we change); Dependent (what we measure); Control (what we keep the same)

 

We made different circuits to test our ideas about what affects the brightness of a bulb.

"Many thanks to everyone, but especially my new class, for making me feel so welcome at Northwood. It's a joy to be part of such a wonderful school." - Mr Fisher

In Maths, we had a play with 'Tarsia puzzles'. It's like a jigsaw puzzle, but each piece has a mathematical sum on it which has to match with an equivalent piece. Some of us even made our own puzzles; Samina gave her puzzle to Mrs McNulty to try out.

What an 'enlightening' start to the year!

 

In Science, we have been looking at LIGHT and SHADOWS. Come and try our 'interactive light display' - it's just outside the school hall.
