Welcome to Year 6's gallery. On this page, you'll be able to find photos showing you what we've been up to.
Apprentice at Elmbridge!
Have a look at this PowerPoint to see photos of the Summer Fayre and how much money the children made using their £15 loans from the PTA.
During the week the children researched information about rockets, produced an information page, made junk model rockets, wrote stories about space and made rockets from straws and balloons to experiment with in the playground.
The children presented their money making ideas to a panel of judges today... They were applying for a £15 start-up loan to turn a profit at the summer fayre (July 7th). They had to: speak confidently; clearly explain their ideas and answer tricky questions!
Many thanks to our governors, Mr Gough and Mr Bennett, as well as Mrs Gough for being our judges today and to the PTA for providing the loans!
We hope to see you all at the Fayre, helping the children to make a profit, on Friday 7th July.
Science and Cooking Day
Year 6 are spending the day thinking about all things science!
They are finding out about the differences between irreversible and reversible reactions as well as learning about famous scientists.
During the day they will:
The year 6 children had fun today, finding out different artifacts about World War 2.
We have been learning about ancient history, linking to our topic- 'A Twist In Time', and we thought it would be fun if we saw things from a museum (which have loads of old facts) and compare them. We had to find out what they were made out of, what they were used for, why were they designed like that and many more intriguing questions.

Design and technology project: chairs through time
As part of their new topic, the children have been finding out how chairs have changed through time. They have been researching what chairs have been made out of and why; how the aesthetics have changed and how these affect the costs.
Using this information, the children have designed their own chairs (with a specific purpose) and are making them today.
As the children worked extremely hard this week they had a 'fun-day' of different activities including; cooking; making batik art work and clothes for different jobs out of bin bags! Have a look at the pictures below to see how much fun we've all had.
A Spectacular Start!
This week is a busy week for our year six children. We got off to a flying start with our shared breakfast club - the children enjoyed chatting about the day ahead over a fruit juice, slice of toast or croissant! Thank you to the PTA and Morrisons for providing the food for the week.
We look forward to having breakfast together all week.
Year Six Golden Enrichment Morning
The year six children had their golden enrichment time this morning. Throughout the term the children have been working hard and those who earned the time spent all afternoon enjoying an activity of their choosing.
Year Six read a new story today, "The Storm Whale". They enjoyed looking at both the text and images in the book - we will spending our English lessons exploring the emotions, descriptions and themes in the text.
Comparing ancient and modern bread flour
The Year 6 children had lots of fun this week, baking bread.
We have been learning about selective breeding and thought it would be fun to see the difference between two types of wheat (to see how selective breeding has changed them), and made bread out of: modern and an old Roman time flour - Einkorn. We identified the different textures of flour the wheat produced, and had lots of fun tasting the bread after it had cooked.

Year Six launch their new topic: The Next Generation
Year Six spent today immersing themselves in the new science topic for this term. We had a visitor from "Paleo Lab" who brought lots of fossils and skeletons for the children to touch and explore.
Year Six Golden Enrichment Morning
The year six children had their golden enrichment time this morning. Throughout the term the children have been working hard and those who earned the time spent all morning enjoying an activity of their choosing.
The children either designed and made t-shirts, created their own outdoor activities or enjoyed the "GBBO" technical challenge in the shake and bake room.
Year six exploded the volcanoes using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. The children enjoyed watching their very own volcanoes in all their glory.
The Year 6 classrooms became a construction site...
The Year 6 children were challenged to create a paper structure that would hold a text book 10cm or 1 metre off the ground. They were then challenged further to see if they could build the tallest self-standing structure in the class.
The children learnt about, properties of materials (and how they can be different to the expected!) and how to use shapes to create strength and, of course, the importance of teamwork.
Year 6 reading to the reception classes
All of the year 6 children were very excited to walk over to the infant site this morning to read to the younger children. The Year 6 children talked to them about the stories and enjoyed looking at the pictures too!
Wombat goes Walkabout - role play and character development
Today, Year Six enjoyed listening to a picture book being read to them then having the chance to create a play based on the story. They enjoyed getting to know a new picture book in a different way.
Golden Enrichment Morning
Over the last half term, Year 6 have been earning their golden time. This morning they chose to enjoy either, cooking biscuits, making stain glass windows or decorating t-shirts. The children enjoyed benefiting from all their hard work so far this year.
In Year 6 today the children were learning in a 'hands on' way. They all had the opportunity to dissect a flower to explore how plants reproduce. "It was really fun" commented Seb.
The children went on to compare different types of flowering plants and explore the similarities and differences.
The volcanoes are close to eruption: stage two of construction is complete!
In Year 6 we have now launched this year's topic - Savage Planet.
The children enjoyed working in groups to begin the construction of their 'modrock' volcanoes. Watch this space: eruptions coming soon...
