'Swordfish' Year 6

Welcome to Swordfish!




Sept 2018 -Welcome Year 6

"Year 6 have made a fantastic start to the new year.  We have started our History topic - The Great Exhibition!"


Read our remembrance poems that we wrote on our special Great War day :



In our topic "Faith through the Arts", we have been focussing on the Jewish Festival of

Hanukkah .  It is the Jewish Festival of Lights.
It dates back to two centuries before the beginning of Christianity. In the western calendar Hanukkah is celebrated in November or December.

We have learnt:

•the significance and  symbolism of Candles in Judaism
• the use of decoration in Jewish celebrations
Look at these candle holders we made!  (we are using battery fairy lights for safety! When they come home , perhaps a battery tea light could make these look lovely !)


We've been doing a team challenge to solve LONG MULTIPLICATION problems!
Epic effort from Year 6!


We have been studying 'Faith and the Arts' in RE this term, with a focus on the arts and symbolism in different religions. This week we revised our knowledge about Sihkism.  Look at the designs of these Kalgi.


The topics that the Year 6 pupils will be covering during the second part of the Autumn Term (Term 2) can be seen below.


The pace plan for Year 6 for the current half term can be seen below. Each pace plan tracks when particular areas of learning will be in focus across a term.
