Year 6 is a very important year for the children at St Mary's. Not only have they reached the end of their time at primary school but they begin preparing for their end of year SATS exams. As well as lots of hard work, they look forward to their time away at Kingswood, preparing for Secondary transition and practising for their ever anticipated end of year production.
Spring Term in Year 6
This spring term has been very busy in year 6. We have used the VR headsets; visited the Houses of Parliament; been on our school journey; worked alongside St Thomas More Primary at Stations of the Cross; and begun to design, build and mod rock our own gadget designs to work alongside our class book Stormbreaker.
Autumn Term in Year 6
This Autumn term has been very busy for year 6. We have visited the Almshouses to ask questions about our WW2 topic; we created interpretations of what justice means for our RE topic; we dressed as evacuees for our trip to Kent Life; presented on a topic during WW2 of our choice; and made a wartime cake in the kitchen!
Y6 enjoyed a wonderful visit to Margaret McMillan House in Wrotham. The children enjoyed a week of outdoor activities. Great fun was had by all.
Class M Propaganda
Class M have been making some of their own WW2 propaganda this afternoon. We talked about the purpose of the propaganda they were making and why it was important.
Class M Displays
Class M have worked incredibly hard over the Autumn term and it's clear in some of their displays!
On Friday, Armistice Day, Class M were very fortunate to visit the Alms Houses in Eltham. We had already created some questions we wanted to ask the residents and thoroughly enjoyed listening to their stories and looking at their memorabilia.
Year 6 have been practising for the Indoor Athletics. The competition takes place on December 6th and involves 10 schools from Greenwich. St Mary's have some talented athletes and are hoping to have a successful day!
The Queen's 90th Birthday
Today we celebrated the Queen's 90th Birthday! We enjoyed designing the Queen a birthday outfit as well as a picnic and some traditional English games!
Today Class M said goodbye to Scarlett as she is moving to Spain! We will miss Scarlett greatly but wish her well on her Spanish journey.
SATS ARE OVER!
Today Year 6 celebrated the end of SATS week! They enjoyed a picnic in the sun and ate ice creams whilst watching The Jungle Book to learn the story behind their end of year production. They all worked incredibly hard this week and should be proud of what they have achieved.
In year 6, we have been reading Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. The protagonist, Alex Rider, becomes an amateur spy and is given special gadgets to help him on his mission. We designed our own gadgets and wrote persuasive speeches to convince Dragon's Den to invest! We then had great fun building, mod rocking and decorating our gadgets. We had all sorts of designs from scanner glasses, exploding peppermints and a pen that broke through walls!
Year 6 have had great fun learning Samba with Michael and thoroughly enjoyed performing to the parents!
Class M visited the Alms Houses where we asked the ladies and gentlemen lots of questions about their experiences during the war! We thoroughly enjoyed listening to their stories and looking at the memorabilia they had.
Some more pictures of our time at Wrotham!
Remembering the fabulous time we had at Wrotham in January.... here's a few more of our pictures!
Year 6 enjoyed learning all about the rainforest...and experiencing a tropical thunderstorm all of our own!
Year 6 boys competed in a five-a-side tournament at St Paul's Academy... See how they got on...
Class N had a lovely visit to the Thomas Philipot Alms Houses. We found out lots of information and even got a chocolate bar!
Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet workshop
A theatre company visited the school to teach the children Elizabethan theatre and the work of William Shakespeare.
Visiting the Almshouses
Year 6 had the opportunity to visit some local people who remembered living through the Second World War. They were very generous with their time and allowed us to interview them about their experiences, giving us a wonderful insight into life at that time.
On the 16th November we had a Living History Day when we dressed in World War Two themed outfits. Everyone looked fantastic. Thanks mum.During the day we had to do formal arithmetic and English lessons. Unfortunately the air raid siren went off during the lessons and we had to dive under tables. When another siren wailed out we knew things were very serious and had to make our way with torches down to our underground shelter.Time passed slowly but we passed the time telling stories and singing songs. Later that day we enjoyed a birthday party. We made decorations with recycled materials and danced the afternoon away!
