Year 6 Learning Journey

Carnival

posted 22 Oct 2020, 08:07 by Oliver Mills

To finish our first half term, Year 6 have been celebrating with a Jamaican-inspired carnival! In a slightly different programme of events to previous years, children made carnival masks, created electricity-based Science games and enjoyed a limbo contest. Also included below are some of the travel brochures written by children; the outcome of this half term's Literacy work. 

It has been great to be back in school and a pleasure to see all of the children settle back in so well. Stay safe and have a good half term break.







Virtual Athletics Tournament

At this time of Year, we normally enter the Sheffield Sports Hall Athletics tournament. This year, as with many things, it is a little bit different as we are competing virtually. We, along with schools all across Sheffield, have challenged pupils across 5 different athletics events (standing long jump, 10 x 10m shuttle runs, standing vertical jump, speed bounce and standing throw) to record their personal bests. This data will be used to decide competition standings. 

Apart from the excellent displays of athleticism on show, we were also really impressed by how well groups worked together and supported each other. 

It is not lost on me that despite being a 'Sports Hall' tournament, we are clearly outside in two of the photos.
