Friday 26th April
This morning year 6 were visited by ex-pupil Emily Hom, who came to share information about mental health with them. She felt it was important to raise awareness of this topic and issue to get people talking about it and to know that they have support and can get help if needed.
Thank you to my budding photographers for catching some pictures of our first session - Cradling and Scooping!
Some incredibly inventive designs!
Great job boys and girls, they look amazing!
We had great fun yesterday in the snow. Year 6, along with the rest of the school, took part in a snow sculpture competition. One snowman was so large it required three members of staff to assemble!
Today year 6 went to the Stockport air raid shelters and museum. The children (and even the adults) dressed in World War 2 style clothing and met actors from the shelters. They were then transported back in time to become new evacuees waiting to be billetted to their new homes. It was a great in character day to further understand what it was like for young evacuees of Stockport during the blitz.
All of the children did brilliantly well with taking part and asking very interesting and thoughtful questions. By the end of the day the children were even excited to start doing chores like cleaning the dishes and laundry!
Today we crafted our tins into Christmas decorations that will form part of 6MS’ Christmas fair stalls. We will have games and pick n’ mix stalls for the children to visit. Below is a preview of some of our creations, unfortunately not available for pre-order! Thank you to all who managed to supply a tin or two towards this, as well as some sweets/toys as prizes. It is greatly appreciated and will help to make it a great event for the children!
Today we had our Holiday show, with fantastic presentations from a chosen few groups, beautifully set out stalls and very tasty food and drink! I would like to say a massive well done for the consistent hard work and effort that was given by the whole of Year 6 in bringing it all together. I hope the parents and other family members enjoyed the children’s efforts, as there was not much food left, I would assume so!
In year 6, we have been preparing for our holiday show, coming next week. The children have done a fantastic job in producing a presentation and props, all aiming to transport the audience to their assigned country whilst informing and entertaining them. Here are some live action snaps of the practise presentations for the real thing!
This evening Mr smith accompanied 6 of our year 6 children to Wellington secondary school to take part in their annual quiz night. The children did very well and secured 2nd place behind Heyes Lane! Well done team!
To finish off our activities of anti bullying week, 6MS produced posters to promote our focus of "choose respect". The class have really worked hard to set a positive example all week for the younger children in the school.
Here are some fab examples of our posters, some being made to replicate the style of Picasso, Warhol, Mondrian and Van Gogh!
This week we will be looking at bullying, how it comes about and what we can do to stop it. Today we started the week with a display of odd socks to highlight how unique we all are.
We we also took part in an anti-bullying, virtual reality workshop. In this, we looked through some scenarios, reflected as a class and questioned the characters. This generated some very mature and interesting discussion in which we looked at the characters motives, feelings and support options.

Welcome to the 6MS class page!
So far in Science we have been learning all about light. We have taken part in quite a few experiments to understand how light travels, how it is reflected and how we can manipulate it into real world uses. Examples of this can be seen below with our string models to show light travelling from a light source to a receptor. There is also our cereal box periscopes which worked brilliantly and were a lot of fun to make!
