Welcome to Y6LM. 

 

We have a fun filled year of learning, enjoying and making the most of our last year at Amberley. 

 

We have some great things lined up: an Eden Camp visit, France, a Making £5 Grow project and many more. 

Autumn Term 2018

Why Should the World be Ashamed of Slavery?

Our newest topic is slavery. We are looking at slavery and why it is important to learn about what happened. We will be looking at the triangular slave trade, plantation life and abolition. We will also be looking at why it took so long for slavery to be abolished, despite the horrific conditions. In English we will be looking at biographies including those of Solomon Northup and William Wilberforce.

Why is the Earth so Angry?

Picture 1

Autumn 1 in Year 6, we asked the question: ‘Why is the Earth Angry?’ Typically, at the beginning of Autumn, the world experiences a barrage on natural disasters, and this year was no different. With tsunamis in Japan, Typhoons in Hong Kong and the Philippines, drought in Australia and wild fires in America, our learning was incredibly topical. The children learnt all about what causes these natural disasters and how they are measured. They considered what life would be like in such turbulent places and wrote newspaper articles assessing the devastation that was left behind.

 

 

PE in Year 6

PE in Year 6  1 Fabulous balancing
PE in Year 6  2 Brilliant skills
PE in Year 6  3 Wonderful bridges

Year 6 children love getting active and it has been brilliant to see the boys and girls showing their resilience during lessons. We have both an indoor slot for PE and an outdoor slot weekly, as well as the running track that we enjoy daily.

It was great to welcome the new Year 6 children and parents with a lovely afternoon of volcano making! This linked really well with our topic, ‘What makes the Earth Angry?’ and it was such a fun afternoon had by all. 

Motivational Speeches

Wow! The children have really worked hard during English lessons in Year 6. They have been looking at the vocabulary and specific features of motivational speeches in order to write and perform their own. 

 

Fun at Eden Camp

 

We had a great time at Eden Camp this Spring. We ventured in and out the huts, Found out what life was really like for those living during WW2 and explored the military vehicles. 

When we got back to school we followed the Eden Camp theme: during English lessons we have been creating our very own persuasive leaflets encouraging others to visit the fabulous museum. 

 

 

Year 6 Girls Football

 

What a great opportunity for the girls football team! They were invited along to Newcastle United's training ground to play against other teams in the region. The girls made it all the way to the semi-final and we were so proud of the them. The skills and teamwork on show that day really impressed me.  

PE this Autumn Term 

 

This term in PE we have been working hard on our Gymnastics skills. We have some really talented gymnasts. 

 

Some very talented skills in gymnastics! Very impressive.

Sports in Year 6- The athletics festival. 

 

We were invited along to the North Tyneside sports festival. The boys and girls in Year 6 really showed their sporting flair and good sportsmanship throughout. We haven't had the results back yet but watch this space.
