Art in Year 6


In year six we are learning about different shades in art. Here are some examples of the types of shades that we have been doing: cross hatching, random hatching, ink wash, contour hatching and hatching.
Also we have been drawing accurately. In art, we have done at least one copy the picture sheet. In art, there are many different subjects: painting; sketching and paint prints. At the moment, we are learning to sketch. This may be helpful in life if students would like to be a person who has to sketch at some point during their/your job. The schools number one priority is to educate students while they also enjoy it. Thank you.

The lockers

The lockers - that are next to 6G and 6H - are in the boy and girls lobbies. Only years 5 and 6 are permitted to use them because you need responsibility for the keys. You are allowed to put keyrings on them, however, they must not be too heavy otherwise they may break under the weight of them. You are not allowed to get anything out of your lockers during lessons unless you really need whatever is in there.

World book day!

As you know, tomorrow is world book day and many children will be dressed as their favourite book characters. Here are some books I would recommend:                         Tiger Wars: An action packed book all about a teenager brought up of in the forests of Poland. It’s also about the illegal poaching of tigers and how to stop it.                               
Artemis Fowl: A very pacey story about a twelve year old Irish criminal who finds a secret race of fairies below ground.
If you do read these books I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

School of Rock

Sometime after Sats year 6 will be watching 'School of Rock' in London. 

They will be doing this as a treat after doing their Sats as it will be a fun experience. They will also be looking around London just to make it a bit more fun. 

This is an opportunity for the year sixes to relax and enjoy themselves after a non- stop week of tests.

The 500 Word Competition

The 500 word competition is where year 6’s -only- write short stories about anything you like. [ e.g. Autism, school or the beach!]. The gold prize is …books stacked up to the height of Chris Evans!

You are not allowed to enter twice because that is against the rules. You are only allowed to do 500 words or under, not over. You are allowed a reasonable amount of time to write in your book; then on the computer; print it out; stick it in your book and send it to Chris Evans. (The teachers will do this)

He or one of the many judges will read every story thoroughly and decide which stories will be 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

The winners will be announced in a few months’ time.

Every year you will have certain lessons to do. They can be: Maths, English, Science (from about year two), Art, History, SRE plus many more.

The different lessons can be from boring to exciting. Most lessons are really good though.

You can play three times during the day. At the start of the day; during the morning/break and in the middle of the day/lunch. These breaks give students the chance to rest their brains. Also it gives them a chance to learn physically and partly mentally. Lessons give children the chance to learn mentally. The only lesson that helps you learn physically is P.E. 

Lessons are a great help and give lots of support for students and their education. They also influence on how well students do in the future.

Going to school and having lessons will really help in life.

Year 5 Science

This term, year 5’s theme in science is space. 

They have been learning about how the planets orbit the sun and how the moons orbit their planets. They have also learnt about the moon’s phases and how they occur/form.

Very recently, 5B had a class assembly on space. All of it was well planned and structured and based on science. They made it so that it would be like a school trip to the West Bergholt Space Agency. It was a very good performance with lots of parents attending the event. Their performance included sections about the size of the planets, the moon and Pluto. All of it was amazing from the pupils voices to the slide show about the moon.
