Key Websites and Resources For Year 6
Year 6 Teaching and Learning Showcase
In art, Y5/Y6 discussed the painting ‘Gassed’ by John Singer Sargent and used photography as the media to reenact the scene. The children became the directors and photographers, organising one another then creating their own title and description as artists ready for editing.
We had special guests in to teach us about road safety. Y6 discussed safe places to cross and the importance of road signs. They had an amazing time learning and remembering ‘Stop, Look, Listen and Think’.
Y5 and Y6 have been using their previous knowledge to extend their learning by understanding moves and vocabulary to practise their own independent Bollywood dances. By using the music ‘Jai Ho’ from Slumdog Millionaire they performed their final routine.
Our super-cool ‘Design A Football Boot’ competition entries have been sent to Panini. You can tell by the children’s faces how much they enjoyed this opportunity and even more so receiving their books and stickers. #GotGotNeed
In music this week, Y6 have been experimenting with combining melodies using the Apple Garage Band app.
Through art we considered Rorschach who produced a personality test, which was considered and inspired other artists including Andy Warhol. We used his form of art and created our symmetry whilst considering what we could see within the images that we made.
For our pantomime, we attended Victoria Hall, Bolton and watched their rendition of Beauty & The Beast, which inspired a narrative piece of writing.
October 2021Gymnastics has come to an end and our pupils have completed their final performance by completing a sequence including many elements including shape, travel, symmetry, rolls, counter balances and props with music for rhythmic gymnastics.
Taking part with Bolton Your School Games, we took part in the cross country competition at Moss Bank Park.
Working with Mr Martin, Y6 are learning to play a few chords on the ukulele.
Welcome to Wellbeing Wednesday where we welcome John Kell from King's Church who works with Y6 and their mental health.
