We danced together and sang songs.

This week, Year 6 have been learning about the discovery of vaccination, studying Doctor Edward Jenner and James Phipps. We have created our own artwork depicting this important moment.

Year 6 have been studying The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. This week, we wrote a new ending.

Year 6 have watched a short film today called Road's End; we then acted out the action with shadow puppets and wrote a diary as the driver of the car.

We researched something that interested us and presented our information to the class.

We investigated air resistance and aerodynamics using paper aeroplanes - discovering which ones went the furthest and why.

Week B: We have been experimenting with helicopters to investigate gravity and air resistance. We had to keep everything the same except 1 variable that we were investigating: either paperclips, paper size or paper type.

Week A: This afternoon, year 6 have been investigating the forces of gravity and air resistance. We have completed fair tests, keeping everything the same except what we were testing - either the paper type, the size of the paperclip or the blade size.

Year 6 have been looking at the circulatory system in the human body. We tried to place the important organs and describe their functions

In RE this week, we learned about Jesus' crucifixion. We then responded to the scripture we read by painting our own interpretations

Mrs. Flain set us a challenge in Science Assembly - how many drops of water can you fit on to a 2p coin? We investigated with our grown-ups for Science Week

For Science Week, we set St. Peter's some challenging questions about space and rockets. We then visited them so they could teach us the answers.

During Book Week, Year 6 read every day. Sometimes, we enjoyed books; other times, we enjoyed comics - comics are reading too!

Year 6 had fun today acting like Ancient Greeks; we had to talk to as many people as we could so we could find out the differences between the main city states.

Year 6 had great fun making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday! We learnt about why we have pancakes on this day and how it leads into Lent. Finally, we enjoyed eating them!

Year 6 enjoyed comparing the different gospel stories about Jesus walking on water. We acted them out, looking for similarities and differences.

Today we acted out the Gospel Story of Jesus feeding the 5,000, to help us understand physical and spiritual hunger.

Father Christmas visited Year 6 this afternoon. We were very grateful when he presented each of us with a gift.

Another successful singing trip to Tesco, where Year 6 sung beautifully. Well done Year 6!

Year 6 have performed really well when visiting Tesco and Age Concern to sing Christmas Carols.

Year 6 visited different classes around the school to show off their learning about electricity

Electricity! Year 6 are using electrical circuits to create maths challenges with complex fractions!

Year 6 have had a great day visiting other classrooms to complete investigations for Maths Day!

Year 5 and 6 really enjoyed teaching each other their games and challenging each other with their mathematical problems

Wow! Maths Games have really captured the imagination of some of our class! One of our children decided to re-make his challenge game to ensure it was big enough to play comfortably. He also added pieces and challenge cards. Well done!

Year 6 have been creating challenging games to teach to and play with Year 5 on Wednesday.

Today, Year 6 presented to the class their favourite Bible quotes showing what Justice means.

Year 6 have been outside acting out some of The Hobbit in preparation for writing a diary as Bilbo Baggins

Year 6 have been looking at the Kingdom of God. Today, we looked at three different parables and how they show that God wants everyone to be invited to the Kingdom, not just those that choose to enter.
