Year 6

We are adding resources for the whole school all the time, so please check the above link regularly.

If you've done any work that you'd like to share with us,

please e-mail it to admin@northwood.bexley.sch.uk 

Do YOU have anything to share ?

'LOCKDOWN' WEEK 17 ** HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Pelumi (for AUGUST !!) **

 

Hope you are all well.

So we have reached the final week of the school year! What a shame that it has ended so strangely. I really hope to see some of you on Tuesday morning to say goodbye and good luck for next year. 

 

As I said last week, if you could write/draw some of your memories of Northwood so that I can share them with other members of staff, that would be great.

Perhaps you can remember something funny that happened or a memorable trip, or maybe you can remember a particular lesson or visitor to the School. Whatever it is, whenever it happened, tell us about it. It could be a poem, a story, a picture, a newspaper report or just a few bullet point memories. Please share them with us!

 

If you fancy a last piece of work or two, here are some comprehensions and a Maths test!

Comprehension (with answers - no cheating !!)

Please enjoy your summer holiday and be confident as you start your new adventure as a Secondary School pupil ! Everyone at Northwood is going to miss you but we will have fond memories, especially every time we sing your Northwood song!

 

Stay safe, don't drive your parents mad, look after yourselves and good luck at Secondary School.

 

********************************************************************************************

Come on !!

Let's have some music, artwork or written work from more than just 9 of you !!

(Thank you Kye, Pelumi, Demilade, Renel, Osyiyo, Joshlyn, Chizaram and now, SIMI and DESTINY !

- in order of appearance!)

You must be doing more than just staring at the walls, or playing Fortnite, or making TikTok clips or watching Netflix and Youtube, aren't you?.

I know some of you have been on Mathletics and/or Reading Eggspress, but you could be doing so much more. (Even if you've sent something already, keep our page fresh but sending some more!)

 

You are a talented bunch; well that's what I've told your Secondary Schools! 

So come on, let's see it!!

SPRING TERM 2020

Another busy half term has come and gone...

 

We've 'climbed' our model mountains; copied each other in Gymnastics; written the tragic tale of curious Alma and reported on love struck Bess and the Highwayman. 

*******************************************************************************

 

In early January 2020, eight intrepid model-making mountaineer groups set out from base camp at the foot of their mountain projects.

 

Through a mixture of ingenuity, hard work and compromise, each group made it, by mid-February,  to the summit of their mountain model.

 

We hope to re-visit them in the summer to complete the electric components that we planned for.

**** A belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all ****

 

After a brilliant first term, we continue 'full steam ahead' into the Spring term. During which we will find out which Secondary Schools, we have been given for next year (*subject to confirmation etc.)

 

Also, there are plenty of other areas of study coming your way:

 

Geography - 'High and Dry' - Mountains and Deserts

DT/Art - Create a 3D mountain landscape

Narrative Poetry - The Highwayman

Science - Classification of animals and plants

History - 'One thousand Years of....' Self-directed topic work looking

at a theme through British History from 1066 to the present day

(e.g fashion, medicine, transport etc)

 

 

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

 

 

The Mathletics and Reading Eggs programs are still ongoing and have been

opened up to access any area that needs brushing up, so log in and

practise some Maths and Reading every week.

Please see Mr Fisher if you have problems with logging in.
