Welcome to 6Y!

 

 

Welcome to 6Y. Below is a picture of our fantastic class! We are taught by Mr Yarrow and Mr Yarrow gets help from Mrs Hepplewhite, Mrs Emerton and Mrs Bowers! Mrs Mason also teaches in our class. We have fun but at the same time know that we must work hard all the time to achieve our goals. Enjoy our class page.

We are fortunate to be one of the schools selected to have coaches from AFCB in to coach our children in their PE lessons on Tuesday afternoons. Each week has a theme and is linked with a particular player on the team. There are some photos below showing your child learning dribbling techniques and a superb tennis warm up game!

NOVEMBER 2016 - INSTRUCTIONS/COOKING! We decided to link our literacy work on instructional texts with DT and the children made some scones! They carefully followed recipes and learned the technique of the rubbing-in method. They enjoyed sampling their creations at the end. Hopefully we will be able to make similar ones again, but next time we could add our own additional ingredients.

Monday 21st November 2016 - Year 6 Remembrance Showcase.

 

We performed our showcase to a large of group of family members who were entertained with thought-provoking poems, inspirational dances, acting and art work to portray silhouettes from the war. We were so proud of all of our children who read so clearly, performed so admirably and who made us reflect on the importance of remembering all those involved with war and conflict around the world. Below are examples of how we arranged the home-made poppies around a candle of Remembrance plus the boards showing their research on poppies and Michael Morpurgo. The pictures also show the boards where our artwork was displayed. 

Well done to everyone.

Don't forget to order your class anthology for £2. Send your child in with the money and we shall ensure that you receive all their poems. The money will be donated to the poppy appeal.

DESIGN TECHNOLOGY - PULLEYS

Tuesday 17th January 2017

We helped Jack (from Jack and the Beanstalk) get his golden goose down from the top of the beanstalk. We thought of a pulley system idea and the children created a pulley system for transportation. They then worked as a team to combine their pulleys together in order to move the goose. Photos of the stages (including some successful results) are shown below.

TAG RUGBY TOURNAMENT - Tuesday 7th March 2017

We competed in the Bournemouth tag rugby festival having selected a mixed team of both classes. The children played really well, scoring tries, tagging their opponents and most of all, having fun! They were unfortunate not to win any games but they came close with several and got better and better. They drew against one team in an end-to-end 10 minutes with the score ending at 7 all. I was really proud that our team was presented 1st for FAIR PLAY and they thoroughly deserved their position in the next stage due to their positive attitude and fair play towards others throughout the tournament. Mr Yarrow.

SOWING THE SEED - Friday 31st March 2017

In 6Y we decided to create and sell popcorn, recyclable key rings, decorated pebbles and Wimbledon tennis balls (previously played with by Lucy Shuker). We decided that the RNLI would be our dedicated charity and we invited Adrian Boyd to come and support our event with posters, banners and life jackets. Below are some of the photos when we were selling our products.

OUR POPCORN PRODUCTION LINES!

We had 10 children in each production line and each person had a specific role. We managed to produce approximately 80 bags in just over an hour which is pretty good doing! The room smelt lovely afterwards. Below are some photos. 

TAG RUGBY FESTIVAL - WEDNESDAY 5TH APRIL 2017

As we qualified for the final based on 'Fair Play' in our last tournament, we went along to Leaf Academy for our next challenge! We had several inspirational speakers as well as a dance group and singers to open the festival. We didn't win any games but drew one game against St. Luke's and were within 1 or 2 tries against other schools. Well done everyone. 

Saturday 22nd April 2017 - TRIP TO AFC BOURNEMOUTH STADIUM (Written by Ryan George and Tilly Gibson)

 

On Saturday, ten lucky Year Sixes (chosen by a raffle) went to the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth to see the  AFCB vs Middlesbrough game and play three matches on a 3G pitch. We arrived at 11:30 and changed into the AFCB kit (provided by the staff) and went to the 3G pitch. We played two matches against Moordown St. John and then against each other (6Y vs 6D). As a surprise, we were all given a free AFCB T-shirt!

 

Afterwards, we went into the stadium to watch the game. We had great seats because we were right behind the goal. AFCB scored two goals in the first 16 minutes of the first half. Then they scored another two goals in the second half, beating Middlesbrough 4-nil! We had great fun and enjoyed it a lot.

SATS!

The children sat their SATS! We were very proud of how they handled the week and from what we saw, they attempted all the questions and tried to remember everything they could. If you wanted to know what the set up looked like then see below! Plus they enjoyed the orange squash and biscuits!

Moors Valley retreat day. Friday 12th May 2017

Following our busy SATS week we had the opportunity to have a nice day out at Moors Valley country park. We were also fortunate enough to try out the 'GO APE' junior course! Each child spent an hour on the high ropes courses and each route ended with a terrifying zip wire! We took photos of all the action and added this to a display in our corridor.   

DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY - WOODEN ART FRAMES - Tuesday 16th May 2017

The children learned the techniques of measuring, joining, cutting and sanding their pieces of wood. This would be the basis for their frames for their fantastic art pieces, which will be displayed at their ART GALLERY evening (Wednesday 24th May 2017 6pm-7pm). Below are photos of the children working. It was an extremely busy morning and we very much appreciate the support the help of the parents that helped us.

Wednesday 7th June 2017 - TOUGH WALBURGA SPORTS DAY! 

The sun was shining and the teachers were prepared! The children walked down, performed their warm up and then went straight to the 1st of 10 exciting new stations which tested their speed, control, team work, strength and strategy. Following this, each child ran in a race on the track to earn points for their house. Check out the photos from the day. 

YEAR 6 PRODUCTION -JULY 2017

We performed our end of year production 4 times over 4 days and each time, the audience thought that the talent was amazing! From mean Mrs Murdstone to the kind gentleman, devious Dodger to flower girl Flo, this play was performed with confidence and incredible acting, dancing and singing. Enjoy looking at a selection of photos of scenes throughout the play.

NOTE: All the props and backdrops were designed, drawn, made and painted by all the children a couple of weeks prior to the play.
