Year 6 Gallery 2016-2017

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.

Rockets Project

 

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 Apprentice

 

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:

  • melt chocolate and solidify it again to make mini chocolates (reversible reaction)
  • make omelettes in the shake and bake room (irreversible reaction)
  • research either Charles Darwin or Mary Anning, then create a poster presentation

 

Historical detectives 

 

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.

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.

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.

Maths in the Shake and Bake room!
Some of the Year six children have been furthering their understanding of measurements; how to convert between them and what equipment to use. The children enjoyed their 'hands on' maths lesson as it gave them a chance to really visualise the different units of measure.

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 gave the books they made to the Reception children today

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!

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. 

Science - Outdoor Learning

The Year 6 children have been enjoying a chance to take their learning outside! They have been deepening their understanding of habitats, the five kingdoms and the seven life processes. 

Year Six ventured into the Living Rainforest...

The Year Six children enjoyed immersing themselves in a rainforest ecosystem today. Their understanding of the different layers of the rainforest was deepened and they learnt a lot of new information about rainforest species and the importance of sustainability. The children came away with many tips - to share with others - about how they can help care for the fragile ecosystem.

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...
