Year 6 Leavers 2021

The day has come where we say farewell to our Year 6 children.  In a very difficult year they have been nothing but amazing and always remained positive; we are so proud of you and wish you the very best if luck as you move onto the next chapter in your learning journey at secondary school. 
As we were unable to have a leavers assembly in the hall with our families watching, we have recorded some of our pieces so that you can see what they have been working on over the last few weeks.

Below are also pictures from our Leavers Mass which we celebrated outdoors and of our trophy presentation.

We wish you all a happy and safe summer!

We are both very excited to see all the children's wonderful smiles back in school. We fully understand that the children have been away from school for quite some time now but please do not worry. We may have to adapt to perhaps a new school routine but we are a family here at St Peter's and we will do this together! 

This page will be regularly updated with key information and will also give you an insight into what the children have been learning in class. We have lots of great topics ahead so please keep on looking to celebrate the children's work and successes over the year,

If anyone needs to get in contact with myself at any time you can send in a note, email year6@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk or ring the school office and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Summer 2

The Feast Day of St Peter and St Paul.

To celebrate, after learning about the works of each Saint, we had a fun day! First we had breakfast together as a class and a cup of tea. Multiple top-ups were requested! 
Next we played bingo and had a few Kahoot quizzes.

After lunch, we headed outdoors and completed an ongoing tournament in dodgeball.

Next we did a mini sports day which was thoroughly enjoyed. After an ice lolly break, we completed our sports with a water race, where there was some excellent balancing going on. Our final fun was to cool down with the water sprinkled over everyone, then children loved this! 

Summer 1

Design and Technology 
In History we have been learning all about Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. In Design and Technology we have designed and made Viking Longboats. 

Captain Tom's 100 Challenge!

On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes. One hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.

His simple message of hope – “Tomorrow will be a good day” – inspired millions around the world and brought comfort and joy to so many during the pandemic.

Now it was our turn to build on that legacy. Friday 30 April would have been his 101st birthday and to honour him and his amazing achievements, The Captain Tom Foundation asked everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in the Captain Tom 100.

All we needed to do was dream up a challenge based around the number 100, and do it between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May.

For our challenge we played a game where we had to collect and re-deliver 100 beanbags amongst our house teams. We followed this game by completing 100 star jumps. 

Spring 2

Smoothie making

To end our topic on Heroes and Villains, today we made smoothies as part of our Science learning about how we can treat our bodies well to keep healthy (hero).

The children really enjoyed planning and making their smoothies. They then evaluated their smoothies and discussed what they liked and would change if they had the chance to make them again.

Below are some pictures of the children enjoying preparing their fruits and then tasting their smoothie.

AUTUMN 2


Christmas Party Day

Today we celebrated Christmas in true St. Peter’s style! We had lots of games and quizzes and even a dance!
Kindness was shared through Secret Santa which everyone thoroughly enjoyed - thank you to everyone for sharing this moment with each other and for being so kind and generous.

Merry Christmas everyone!
May hope, love, joy and peace be with you all. 

CAFOD GIFTS

Well done Year 6, you have raised such a great amount of money for CAFOD this Christmas through our weekly game of bingo and sacrificed a Christmas present for yourselves to help those in need.
Today the children chose which gifts they wanted to purchase and as a class agreed on the following items.
We are so proud of your selflessness, your actions will truly make a difference to other people’s’ lives. 
Well done! 

Science Investigation

 Over the past two weeks in science we have been studying different types of birds and their beaks. All birds have a beak or bill that they use to eat, preen and build nests. However beaks come in many different shapes and sizes. A birds beak gives us an idea as to what they eat.

Our investigation question was to find out which food would be the easiest to pick up using different pieces of equipment.. we used 4 different types of food: rice, broken spaghetti, peppercorns and raisins.. The equipment we used to pick up the food were: twizzers, bulldog clips, chopsticks and cocktail sticks.

The children had so much fun and we finished the lesson by  making bird feeders that will be hung from the trees in the playground.

Science

During our science lessons we have been learning all about light an how we see things. Today’s focus was about reflections and how mirrors reflect light and different objects. The children made a periscope and used them in class to see things.

 

Art - Line Drawing Techniques

During our art lessons we have been exploring the range of effects we can make by just using lines and different pencil tones.  After exploring, we chose an animal and were only given half of the image. We then had to complete the other half using only our line techniques.  We are really pleased with the outcomes. Some children moved onto other images and tried using charcoal. 
We hope you like our work as much as we do! 

AUTUMN 1

Andy Goldsworthy

Today we learnt about the British Artist Andy Goldsworthy. We looked at pieces of his artwork and learnt how he only uses elements of the natural environment, photographs his temporary works and sometimes watches his work decompose or change due to the natural environment.
 Below are some pictures of our creations in his style.

World Space Week 

This week we learnt about satellites. We thought about what we can see when we look up at the night sky - stars. This moved us onto studying star constellations. We chose our favourites in the northern hemisphere and then made a star gazer including our favourite constellations.

Artwork 

As part of our topic on natural disasters, we have been reading a book where a tsunami as just occurred. Linking to this we have studied the artwork of Hokusai - The Great Wave and imitated this. First we produced a pencil drawing and then moved onto paint. 
We hope you like our work.
