Year 6 Class Blog

Why does the Moon appear to change shape?

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

In Science, we have been exploring the different phases of the moon, and how these phases of the Moon make the moon appear to change shape. We used Oreo cookies to represent the different phases of the moon and created our own edible models of the Moon's phases. 

Here are some pictures of us creating our models and also the finished pieces:

We then finished our lesson with a 'Phases of the Moon Bingo'.


Race for Life

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

This morning, Year 6 took part in the Race for Life. The children completed 3 laps of both the school field and playground. Every member of Year 6 showed great resilience and worked well in a team - cheering each other on. You should all be so proud of yourselves for this achievement!

Here are some images of our Race for Life:


Our trip to Sheffield

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

In our Topic lessons this term, Year 6 have been investigating what makes a city a city. In order to help us answer our question 'What makes Sheffield a City?', we decided to visit Sheffield. Whilst we were there, we identified lots of features of a city that Sheffield had: commercial areas, such as shops and restaurants, industrial areas, residential areas and lots of different types of transport.

The children then carried out numerous pedestrian counts in different areas of Sheffield to see how the pedestrian count  in Sheffield compared to a pedestrian count carried out by Y3 and Y4 in Wath. 

The children represented the school brilliantly whilst out in Sheffield and we are now able to answer our question 'What makes Sheffield a city?'.

Here are some pictures of our trip:
