Today is the start of our Anti-Bullying week. The children took part in an assembly focusing on our idea of “Change starts with us”. They also highlighted how different we all are and how this should be celebrated by wearing odd socks!
Today 6MS took part in our whole school Music Day, which the children thoroughly enjoyed! The focus was on celebrating Black History Month UK as the children learnt about many famous people such as Martin Luther King, Mary Seacole and Rosa Parks. We looked at video and discussed why these people have been so influential and why it is important to remember people from all backgrounds and cultures. The children then listened to a range of music and took part in an exciting workshop with ‘Gospel Touch’, a choir who taught the children a few songs which we later performed to some of our parents!
Today Year 6 headed down to St Peter’s Church in Hale to take part in a school wide celebration of Harvest with volunteers from the Parish. It was a brilliant day and the children were a credit to the school. We tried sewing, grinding grain, pressing apples and even made mice out of dough! A huge thank you to the volunteers of the church for such a great day.
Today 6MS have been investigating colour theory and how light can be refracted into the colour spectrum. We explored the work of Sir Isaac Newton by making colour wheels to combine various colours to see what colour is pure light.
Today we have been using our computing knowledge to understand algorithms, how they can help us and where we see them in the real world. We have then begun the process of designing an app that helps us with a problem children may face. I can’t wait to see what ideas we come up with!
6MS have taken part in a fantastic Lego Robotics workshop this afternoon. We used lego and coding software to create algorithms to make our robot follow commands. We even used more advanced concepts such as conditional statements to create more complex commands for our robots!
Today 6MS began our science topic of Light, discussing what it is and how it travels. The children then had a go at using wool to create human models of how light travels, with one child acting as a light source!
Here you will find all the information needed regarding 6MS. Should you need anything please don't hesitate to contact.
I look forward to a great year with the class and can't wait for the trips, presentations and events we have planned. The children have started the year brilliantly and are already hard at work producing some excellent work around our topic of Mountains!
