Year 6 - Mr Bentley, Mrs Secker & Mrs Higham (Mrs Rees PPA)

We are a class of 20 highly motivated and determined young people who are building upon all the fantastic skills we have already gained throughout our years here at St Augustine's Catholic Primary School.  We are ready for the challenges of Year 6 and look forward to showing what we have been learning on this webpage. 

In Year 6 we aim to develop greater independence in preparation for our transition to secondary school.  We are encouraged to take on extra responsibilities around the school and to model high expectations of behaviour and learning for our younger peers to follow in our footsteps.  With Christ as our guide, we will achieve everything we set out to!

Keep track on what we are learning about this year...

Our long term plans outline what we will be covering throughout the year. The curriculum letter outlines more about each subject for the term in detail.  

European Languages Day

For European Languages Day this year, Y6 researched a country of their choosing with a partner.  They came up with a series of true or false questions relating to the language and culture of their country and then created - and hyperlinked them all together!  They are all hosted below so download them all to your desktop and then work from the master slide to challenge your knowledge of each country.

WW2 Voluntary Responsibilities

Y6 have been learning about the role of women during World War 2 and have investigated what was expected of an ARP Warden.  Have a look at the leaflets they produced detailing these responsibilities and other aspects of this important job.

Y6 have also been investigating Rationing during WW2 and how this impacted on everyday lives.  The children looked into the similarities and differences between a modern daily weekly menu and one they could have planned during 1942.

Science - Ourselves and Other Animals

As part of our Ourselves & other animals science topic, we have been identifying and naming the main organs in the human body, including the heart, brain, lungs, liver, kidneys & stomach. Using secondary sources of information, we then researched these human organs so we could learn more about them and describe their functions. We found lots of fascinating facts which we then shared with our peers. To do this the skills we used were: following a line of enquiry, using scientific diagrams & vocabulary and reporting findings (including explanations) in oral form.

Science - Electricity

In science this half term, Year 6 have been learning about Electricity. To begin with, we brainstormed what we already knew and then built upon our prior knowledge. Firstly we recognised common appliances that run on electricity and discussed where their energy source comes from. Then we conducted experiments to investigate if the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer is associated with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit. Finally we compared and gave reasons for variations in how components function, including the on/off position of switches.
