This week we are very proud of the work we have completed in Computing!
Year 6 have been making computer games in their computing lessons using a technique called "tilemaps".
This is the beta version of Nikola's maze game.
This game will work on desktops and laptops.
Move using the arrow keys - left click the mouse to look at the whole maze.
Welcome back to Year Six. We hope you had a lovely Christmas Break and a Happy New Year.
In Year Six this half term, we are starting to think about how we can ensure we are making progress in our learning. We have a weekly spelling test and complete our Times Table Rock Stars assessments at the end of each day.
Homework will be given out weekly and will always be linked to our learning in class. If you find your homework tricky, then there is always an opportunity to complete it in one of our in school sessions where an adult from Year Six will be available to help.
Our topic for this half term is all about exploring Antarctica and will link Science, Geography and History. Perhaps you could research this continent at home. We will be learning about evolution and inheritance in Science and linking our Literacy work to this. In Religious Education, we are learning about God and the impact he has on our lives as Christians. We will continue to develop our understanding of Spanish by learning about parts of the body. We will also continue to develop our Design Technology skills and Computing skills this half term.
Our current class book is Wonder by R.J.Palacio.
Welcome back to Year Six.
We are very excited to have a new Year Six class who we hope will work hard to achieve their SPOT bands this year. Already, four members of our class have been awarded their SPOT bands for showing to us that they are fabulous Year Six learners.
To achieve your SPOT band you must:
- persevere in your learning
- show respect to the school and the people in it
- make sure you are listening at all times
- take pride in your presentation
- demonstrate excellent manners
- try to have a growth mindset
I am sure we will soon have many more people wearing their yellow bands with pride.
This half term we are learning about Nelson Mandela and his influence on the world - we will link our History and Geography skills here. We are also learning about our heart and lungs and why they are vital parts of our body. In RE, we are considering how life can be like a journey. We are also getting to grips with some new Spanish words and phrases which will help us if we go on holiday to Spain.
Our current class reading book is:
