Year 6 Curriculum Impact

2019-20

As part of our home learning, we watched a short video and used it to inspire some writing. We're all desperate to know what happened next! Watch the video here then look at a selection of our writing:

 

This was made by a Year 6 child during isolation. I think we all share her feelings about how much we are missing being at school. 
We have been doing lots of reading during our time away from school. Take a look at some of our book reviews!
We may not be in school at the moment, but that hasn't stopped us learning. Today, one of our tasks was to create a picture of a duck by drawing around our hand!

Duck Drawings!

British Science Week

British Science Week

Y6 were very lucky to be visited by ex-pupil, Shadia Jones, who has just completed her Masters in civil engineering. She came to talk to us about the importance of reading and writing and how this has helped in her studies. The children were truly inspired!

February 7th 2020

Today, eight Year 6 children went to the Women's Hospital to put their artwork about what they want to be when they grow up in a time capsule.  The time capsule is to be buried under the entrance to the new Neo natal unit which is due to open later this year.  The children are working with artist Nicola Lowe to create artwork which will be placed at the entrance of the new unit . This will be part of a permanent display.  The children had a great morning and enjoyed juice and cookies provided by the staff! They're looking forward to their next visit when they will also get a tour of the new neonatal unit . 

We invited our parents to school to help us learn about the importance of recycling. We have some very talented mums and dads!
We enjoyed a fantastic day doing 'Chemistry with Cabbage', learning about chemical changes. The investigations were brilliant and we learned lots of fun ways to explore scientific ideas.
Year 6 attended the Crucial Crew event where we met people from organisations such as Merseyside Police, St. John's Ambulance and the Dogs Trust who showed us how we can protect ourselves in public and online.
In music, Year 6 have been learning the song. 'Happy'. As well as singing, we have been learning the glockenspiel accompaniments to play along. We have learned how important it is to keep the correct rhythm and timing.

Happy

In art, year 6 have been studying Gustav Klimt. We have painted in the style of Gustav and used symbolism. We have been experimenting with texture and patterns.

For Design and Technology, year 6 had to design a scarecrow. We all talked about the purpose and safety issues involved in the design of our scarecrows so they would be successful and safe outside.

Year 6 visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum to take part in a 'Life in the Forties' workshop led by the Liverpool Women's History Group. This was a great introduction to our World War Two topic and we even got to experience what it would have been like during an air raid!

Air Raid!

We were lucky to, once again, welcome James Riley to Year 6. His anti-gang message was well-received by the children, who learned a lot about how to keep themselves safe as they get older.

 

 

Our future Chief Constable of Merseyside - the lucky recipient of a JD Sports voucher for her hard work and superb responses all week.

2018-19

Street Art

 

As part of their Street Art topic, Year 6 visited the Baltic Triangle to see some some amazing art work. The Liver Bird wings were a definite favourite! 

Drug & Alcohol Awareness Workshop

 

6O visited the Learning Space at Anfield to take part in a drug and alcohol awareness workshop led by Young Addaction. As well as finding out about the dangers, we each took part in a presentation to show what we had found out. We also tried on some 'beer goggles' and discovered how difficult it was to do everyday things like walk in a straight line!

Chemistry With Cabbage

We had a great time at our Chemistry with Cabbage workshop, finding out about scientific processes and carrying out our own investigations!

Crucial Crew!

 

We attended the Crucial Crew event where we discovered ways in which we can protect ourselves from danger. We met people from many organisations such as The Dogs' Trust and St. John Ambulance and had a fantastic morning.

At War!

Some Y6 children played UV Dodgeball at Anfield Sports Centre.It was brilliant!

Our visit from Zoolab!

Sport at Archbishop Blanch

Thank you to the staff and pupils at Archbishop Blanch for giving us the opportunity to do some P.E. at their school - the children all had a fantastic time and are desperate to go again!

Our Visit to Merseyside Maritime Museum

Still image for this video
As part of our Science topic on healthy bodies, we went to the Merseyside Maritime Museum and wore some 'beer goggles' to see the effect alcohol can have on our body. It was impossible to stack the cups on top of each other!

New Age Kurling Champions!

Huge congratulations to our Year 6 children who took part in the LSSP New Age Kurling competition at ESLA and won! The children were a credit to our school.

 

 

Year 6 Science

We have been finding out about the systems of the human body and today we made our own digestive system! As you can see, some children enjoyed the mess more than others!

 

 

 

Tony Bellew, ex-pupil of Lawrence Community Primary School, came to visit and some of the Year 6 children were photographed holding his WBC belt!

 

 

Welcome to Year 6
