Year 6 - Mr O'Hara, Mrs Vernon & Mrs Higham

Welcome to our class page. We are developing into a class of 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.

English

This half term we will be studying the book 'The Man who Walked Between the Towers' by Mordical Gerstein. The children have already written some fantastic Wikipedia pages about the Twin Towers and have written a formal letter of advice to Phillipe Petit in order to try to persuade him against the idea of walking between the towers. The children will be continuing their exploration of the book by conducting interviews and writing a newspaper article to describe the events that took place.

Music

music-and-me

Music and Me- In this unit. the pupils will listen to and appraise the music of inspirational women working in music. The students will explore the concept of identity and understanding how gender, culture and social aspects shape us into who we are as individuals. The children will be invited to create a piece of music which represents their own personal identity whilst being exposed to the music of some of the most influential women of the last 100 years. 

Stay tuned to hear some of the children's own music as weeks go on! 

Art/DT

Last half term we studied the artist Romero Britto. We learnt about the shades, patterns and shapes that Romero used in his style of art. After experiencing with these, we created our own self portraits combining all of these skills. Here are our finished pieces...

 

This half term the children will be planning, designing and baking their own cookies. They will be considering the importance of health and safety in the kitchen and why hygeine is crucial when working with ingredients. They will be conducting their own market research to find out what the preferred types of biscuit/cookies are and considering how branding/costing can have a huge impact on consumer choice. They will consider how their cookies will be packaged and be able to evaluate their end product against a set critieria, considering changes that they would make in the future.
