Y6JP - Wicked Wildcats 2018 - 2019
Don't forget Wildcats, your project is to either keep an exercise diary (complete with funky illustrations) or to design (in either 2D or 3D form) a villain or hero of your choice. Or you can do both! This in preparation for our first topic of 2019 - HEALTHY HEROES!
BUG CLUB SCHOOL CODE IS 9MLL
Here they are - the "Wicked Wildcats" of 2018/2019. Welcome to our Class Page. The children have already made a brilliant start to the year and have engaged in lots of new learning. Please explore our class page and discover what we have been up to.
Our teachers this year are Mr Pye (class teacher) and Mrs Butt (teaching assistant). The class will be taught by Mrs Hall on a Wednesday afternoon. Here is a picture of Mr Pye and Mrs Butt ready for action on a typical day in Wildcat Class.
We have already voted for some fabulous representatives for our class (as well as some super readers for FBA). We are sure they are going to represent Year 6 with distinction throughout the year.
School Council Member: Ali-Naqi and Mehreen.
School Eco Council Members: Zaky and Anaya.
F B A Members: Yaminah and Anaya.
This term our theme title has been called "Britten's Got Talent". You may be thinking I have misspelt the name of our country but this is named after the famous composer - Benjamin Britten In English we have written song lyrics and have delved into the past in our Class Fiction unit on "The Hobbit". It has been a fantastic unit.
Queen Street Mill Weaving Project
As part of our topic, we visited Queen Street Mill to learn about the cottage industry that made Burnley thrive all those years ago. It was fascinating! We then went on to weave our own placemats using the famous artist Kandinsky as inspiration. Here are some photographs of the trip along with some prototypes from our weaving project.
We are very excited to have a "Taster Day" at Whitehough on Friday 28th October. We would encourage all children to come on the residential (which takes place in July). The activities we "tasted" included the amazing "Leap of Faith". Here are some pictures of the Wildcats in their natural environment... the outdoors.
Art week was fabulous in Year 6. We looked at the life and works of Clarice Cliff. Born in Stoke-on-Trent in the year 1899, Clarice was a famous "potter" who designed her own style of "Bizarre" ware. As part of our work, we studied her designs, created prototypes and then used pottery skills to create a white clay plate. To help us add the finishing touches, parents were invited into school to assist with the painting process. Here are some brilliant pictures from throughout the week.
Geography in the News!
Our Geography work, linked to our "Survival" theme has been about continents and countries with a focus on general knowledge. As part of this, we have discussed and looked at climate change and how this has been in the news a lot with the extremes of weather our planet has been facing. We wrote to our local M.P (Mr Stephenson) to see what his views were. Here are some letters - we await his reponse.
Wildcats are expected to read at least three times per week. It is expected that the children will read to an adult, who can then ask questions about the book.
Homework will sent home every Thursday and this will be brought back to school, completed on the following Tuesday. Homework includes the following activities:
* My Maths activity
* Reading activity
* A short writing activity
* Talking Topic
* A spelling task
P.E takes place every Friday afternoon. This term our focus has been invasion games. The children have improved and developed their ability to throw using chest passes and shoulder passes and have also understood the importance of working as a team.
P.E kit reminder:
* Black pumps (no trainers).
* Black shorts ( girls are allowed to wear black leggings).
* Red T- shirt.
Please remember to bring your full PE kits on the first Monday Back (6th November).
Over the half term the Wildcats will be learning about place value and applied that knowledge through developing the skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We have also looked at properties of both 2D and 3D shapes such as symmetry, whether a shape is regular or irregular; the number of faces, edges and vertices and the size of angles.
