Welcome to our Year 6 page. Here you will find out about all of our latest news, photos, curriculum letters, trips and Assemblies.

In year 6 we have two fantastic classes, Grasshopper and Hellebore, these are our class logos that are on our front door to the classrooms.

These two classes are taken care by two amazing teachers; Mr Flatley who is the class teacher of Hellebore and he is also Achievement Leader for year 6,  Grasshoppers class teacher is Miss Green. Miss Green is also our Maths Leader.

On Friday 19th January, Year 6 performed their ‘World Religions Day’ assembly in front of the whole school. During the assembly, information about the world’s six most practised religions was presented, as well as interesting facts about less known religions. In preparation for the assembly, the children from Year 6 researched and recorded down facts about their chosen religion. This information was then represented on creative and colourful posters, that were shown in the assembly.

Year 6 – Maths Story Week February 2018

During Maths Story Week, Year 6 have been looking at a book titled ‘If the World Were a Village’ by David Smith. This book tells the interesting story of 100 people that live in a remote village. Many interesting facts and pieces of information about the 100 people in the village are shared in the book, including nationalities, religions, ages and access to clean food and water. These 100 people represent the world’s total population of 7.6 billion people.

On Monday, we discussed and made inferences about the front cover of the book. We thought about the plot, the facts and what the pictures might symbolise. We then used clues to create inferences and thought about questions we would like to further investigate.

On Tuesday, we looked more closely at the introduction to the story, which specified the world’s population of 7.6 billion and explored the countries in the world which have the largest populations, how much land they occupy and their birth rates too. We used atlases and the internet to help us to research and record these facts. Later on, we compared these to the world’s least populated countries and discussed contributing factors that may influence this.

On Wednesday, we used the information about the different nationalities in the village, to represent this information in a clear and concise way. We decided that pie charts were a relevant way to do this. After we had calculated how large each sector should be for each of the nationalities on the pie chart (in degrees), we constructed them using protractors. We then wrote a conclusion based on what the pie chart had shown. Different sentence starters were used to scaffold this activity.

By the time it got to Thursday, we were ready to start planning our very own version of the story ‘If the World Were a Year 6 Maths Group.’ After getting into small groups, each decided which category they would like to investigate within the class. These categories included religions, nationalities, favourite genre of music and preferred school subject. Following on from this, the children used pie charts to present their findings, and calculated how many degrees each sector would need in order to construct the pie chart.

On Friday, each group interpreted their data, and wrote detailed conclusions about their findings. A large book was then put together, using the pictures, information, pie charts and data analysis from each group.
