Safer Internet Day
Year 6 are finding out about AI as part of their Safer Internet Day work.
How will AI change our lives?2
In Year 6, your teachers will expect a lot. You will work hard, you will be pushed but, you will have fun!
As a Year 6 pupil, you will be a role model for others, so it is important that you lead by example.
Our Year 6 Team: Miss Carden, Miss Dawson, Mr Ma and Mrs Venables

After learning about Mosques, we followed step by step instructions to create our own geometric Islamic patterns. Now they are designed, we are going to colour. How symmetrical can we make them? 👀1
As part of our unit (Grace, Ummah and Ahimsa), we learnt a little about Ghandi, and how he protested peacefully against wrongs and injustices. We then used some key words to present in his name.3
We have been thinking of actions and qualities to fit a character. We’re now choosing and using percussion instruments to play to represent our character, their qualities and actions with music. 🎶 🎼 🎵 🥁2
A group of our artists are currently working on a mural displaying scenes from Hansel and Gretel, a story we read and worked with last term. Everything has been lightly sketched on and now the girls are applying the colour. We can’t wait to see the finished piece!2
A selection of our FABULOUS actors who performed in our Christmas 2023 performance of The Wizard of Oz. We hope you loved watching as much as we loved performing for you all!🎭
Year 6 focused on using python coding to make a Christmas tree. As a class we created code for a triangle to be drawn, focusing on the importance of our use of brackets and spacing between words. Children then used the base code to create a Christmas tree image, each section had to be a different colour.11
Huge well done to the winner of the ‘Hands’ jacket in our celebration assembly today. We have thoroughly loved learning to communicate using sign language.
Thank you ‘HANDS’
This Friday, 8th December 2023, we will be having our very own Santa Dash! A chance to squeeze in an extra fitness session whilst having some festive fun 🏃🏾♀️🏃🏽🏃🏽♂️🎄🎅🏽🤶🏻

We have thoroughly enjoyed reading Neil Gaiman’s version of Hansel and Gretel, so much so, it led us to writing our own dual narratives. We are so proud of the writing we have produced.16
This afternoon Year 6 have continued to look at Python coding using Edublocks. Today children used lists, logic, loops, variables, and math to get a “turtle” to create a pattern with whilst changing colours after a number of turns.12
Year 6 this afternoon continued to look at Python coding. Children used If statements and variables to create a program that drew a shape in a particular colour by asking questions.11
We were so blown away by this painting that we simply had to frame it! What a wonderful interpretation of Claude Monet’s ‘The Poppy Field’ by a very talented Year 6 artist 👨🎨13
