Year 6 2022-2023

Mr Hughes and Mrs Ellis

Welcome back to school and the first half of the autumn term. We really hope you and your family are keeping safe and well and you all had a wonderful holiday over the summer. During the course of the year we will be show casing on our website, lots of the learning the children have been undertaking in Year 6. 

 

This week in school we had a wonderful rock concert from Bradford Music. The children listened to various instruments being played including guitars, piano and drums. The children loved the concert and hopefully this will inspire some of the children to take up music lessons! 

 

Computing

This week in Computing we have been reminding ourselves of the importance of e-safety. The children have been looking at how we can stay safe on line and also what to do if we are unsure about something that happens when online. We have also been looking at IP addresses and why they are important. We have also been learning about how information is sent on the internet using packets to transfer from the sender to the receiver!

First Week Fun!

In Year 6 we have been creating fun emoji's of ourselves. The children created their own character based on feelings or emotions they may be having around different aspects of Year 6. Children have included thoughts around our Ingleborough Hall  residential, SAT's and the end of year production!  

 

 

 

                                                                       Art - The Italian Renaissance Period

This week the children have been developing their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design. The children have been learning about Leonardo Da Vinci and created some artwork inspired by him. 

 

Maths

Times Tables and Arithmetic

Times tables and arithmetic are essential for mathematics and we spend a lot of time developing these throughout the year. By building these skills, it helps children's efficiency, confidence and stress on the working memory. Here are some resources to help at home.
