Class 6JR

“6JR and proud!!!”



Thank you for visiting 6JR's class page!


We are all very excited about the new school year, especially as we are now the oldest in the school!


Please enjoy our class page and we hope that you enjoy looking through our photographs from the many activities that we have already experienced at St Walburga's and what we will experience this year in 6JR with Mr Richardson and Mrs Hepplewhite.


Please feel free to come and visit the classroom to see what the 6JR team are getting up to!

Taste Testing



Our topic for the Spring term is the Ancient Mayans and to get our topic off to a 'tasty' start we have been looking at food from around the America's, specifically Mexican cuisine. The Year 6 teachers have since set us the design brief of creating a healthy snack inspired by Mexican cuisine. Therefore, we thought it would be a good idea to taste test some of the ingredients from these Mexican dishes, e.g. tortillas, nachos, different coloured peppers, salsa and guacamole, as well as a variety of different cheeses. Yummmmy!

6JR's Day Care Centre Visit



On Friday 30th November, 6JR visited a local day care centre as part of our whole school community project. The children shared the work that they had created in preparation for our 'Remembrance Showcase' with elderly members of our community. This included poems, artwork, dancing and singing. Both the children and the elderly members of the community enjoyed this opportunity to socialise with one another and we have already arranged to go back on a more regular basis.

6JR Class Reminders



HOME LEARNING: Goes out on a Thursday and must be returned by the following Tuesday. You can bring it in earlier if you like but the deadline is Tuesday. Please put your COMPLETED home learning in the correct green boxes in the corridor! They are labelled! Home Learning would usually consist of Maths, Literacy and Spellings. The WEEKLY HOME LEARNING sheet will be stuck in the maths book if you forget what you are supposed to do. There is also a HELPFUL HINTS sheet stuck in the front of the literacy book and this is how we would expect the spellings to be set out.


HOME LEARNING CLUBS: To encourage you to complete your home learning to the best of your ability, we give up our time to put on 3 clubs each week. As soon as you have brought in both your Maths and Literacy home learning books then you can sign up on the windows. The earlier you return your completed books, the more chance that you have of choosing your preferred club. Clubs will vary throughout each term but look out for computing, tiddlywinks, playing cards, subbuteo, crab football, table tennis, art club and more!


HOME READERS: These also go out on a Thursday and are due in by the following Thursday.You need to read a minimum of 30 minutes and get this recorded and signed by an adult each week. We would much prefer SHORTER AND MORE OFTEN (e.g 3 x 10 mins) rather than one longer read. There are loads of useful GPS in the middle of our new home readers this year. Once you have returned your COMPLETED home reader in the correct box, Mrs Hepplewhite will sign them off and add a sticker to your 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Game Chart' where you will gain rewards at the end of each half term. The more you read, the more reward you will gain! Children in Year 6 are expected to complete the home readers as fully as they can, parents can then just glance over and sign once completed.

Ice Cream and play!

   Sports Day 2018


   Sports Day was terrific. 

We were blessed with great weather and everyone enjoyed the varied activities, as you can see from the photos below. 



The children have had a great afternoon at Activate.

There are some skilful gymnasts and trampolinists in our class!

Below are some photos of the fun.


Wednesday 2nd May


 We had a super morning at Safewise,learning how to keep safe in different situations,including:

on the beach,on the bus,at the park and on our bikes.

Here are photos showing some of the scenarios.





We did it.

I am very proud of you 5TL .

Everyone who ran did their 43 laps of the playground

...and some did extra to add to our distance for those who

were unable to run-Thank you! 

Just a few photos to show your perseverance and

happiness at the end.




World Book Day 2018


World Book Day was different this year. 

We STILL dressed up as our favourite book character.

We STILL talked about our favourite books.

We STILL spent some time with our prayer buddies.

We also brought in a book to swap.


As always every thing was great fun


to add to the excitement this year we had SNOW!!!!


We hope you enjoy looking at the photos showing the fun we had.


Our Anglo-Saxon Trials


  We have had great fun looking at the legal system of Anglo-       Saxon Britain. We looked at scenarios such as, "Stealing sheep,"     and, " A woman chanting a spell," and decided which punishment

 would be appropriate. We liked the idea of chopping off a hand or

 a foot and even hanging! The photos show the dramas we   performed. 

Viking Green Soup


   We made Viking Green Soup. We started with our veg that we measured accurately and cut carefully. After that, we crumbled the bouillon cube (vegetable stock) into the boiling water. Then the teacher drained the white of two eggs and kept the yolks. We poured the yolks into a bowl and gradually poured half a jug of cream into it. We stirred it all together and grated nutmeg over the top! It tasted really delicious but some people thought it wasn't to their taste. Most people thought the vegetables tasted nice but the cream changed the flavour a bit.





  We have written and performed fantastic 'Vikings!' poems.       Here  we are holding our masterpieces.


Spring Term


Welcome back!

This term our topic is Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.

We are so excited to find out about these'Invaders and Settlers.'

We have begun by imagining we are archaeologists finding artefacts.

Here are some photos of our  'DIG.'

We very carefully exposed our artefacts piece by piece,questioning and speculating.

What is it?

What is it made of?

Who would use it?


Tuesday 5th December

Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium



Wow! What a fantastic day we had  visiting the Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium.


 First, we looked around the various exhibits, all of which were interactive as you can see from the photos below. We were learning so many things it was amazing.


Secondly, we went into the planetarium where we learnt about 'Earth and Space'. It was incredible to look at the stars from earth, then to "go into orbit" to explore.The scientist who talked to us was very informative and after the presentation she answered many of our questions.


Next we had a workshop where we carried out some experiments-again look at the photos . We showed we were very resilient as we persevered with a "Robot challenge,"


We were starving as we had our late lunch. We were joined by a scientist who talked to us more-reminding us we need to work hard at our maths if we want to be scientists! 


We had a little time left so ended the day back at the exhibits-more photos below!


The whole of our class would like to thank Mr Watkins for organising such an amazing trip!  Lots of us now want to be scientists when we grow up !




  We had a very interesting talk about road safety,when we were 

  reminded how important it was to wear a helmet when we go out on    our bikes no matter where we are or how far we are cycling.


We used eggs...fresh not boiled to show what could happen to our head if we don't wear our helmets.


We all agreed




World Book Day 2nd March 2017
We had a great time dressed up as our characters from books we love.  Great outfits!

Fairy Tales - January 2017

We had two weeks looking at two stories, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk. We did lots of writing including the children trying to combine the two stories. In Science we built magic beanstalks but linked this to what real plants need to grow well.  In dance we pretended to chase Jack and in DT we built castles for the giant. The children had to solve lots of time problems to try and help Cinderella get back on time but, as in real life, time is a difficult concept!

Science - Human Digestion


On 22 November, Year 4 were extremely lucky to have a Secondary Science Teacher come in to teach a fascinating lesson.  All of us, including the teachers, learnt a lot.  A huge thank you to Mrs Mariner.

4W Had a very busy morning learning how to give change from £1.  Here are some pictures of us using plastic money to reinforce this vital skill.  Why not have a go with your child at home using real money?
We are a new class made up of children from the previous Year 3 classes.  You can find pictures of the former 3W and 3R on the other Year 4 classes pages.
