Elder Class are the Year Sixes at St. Mary's Bentworth, a time for great responsibilities and heaps of learning.

In terms of our learning this year we will be consolidating learning from previous years, making sure that we are secure in concepts ready for Secondary School, and also challenging and extending our learning in all areas.

 

The Summer term means many things for Year Six...it's the last term of Primary School, there is the residential to look forward to, an end of term production and the leavers services.

 

In English this  term, we will be investigating multimodal work using the book 'The Arrival', by Shaun Tan, to produce high quality written work. We have already begun looking at this book, and have discovered that there are no words - only illustrations! We will be delving more deeply into the characters of the book and writing our own short story about one of them. We will also use short narrative videos from 'The Literacy Shed', to aid our writing. After the half term we will be delving into the works of the great playwright William Shakespeare! In the year of the 400th anniversary of his death, it seems an appropriate time to immerse ourselves in his work!  

 

In Maths, we will be focusing on revising all those different elements of mathematics ready for the SAT's in May. After the SAT's are all done and dusted, we will be ensuring that our Primary School knowledge in the blocks of maths (place value, four operations, fractions, geometry, ratio and proportion, algebra, measurement and statistics) are securely ready for Secondary School, and completing transition work and extended mathematical investigations. 

 

Our Topic work will be looking at the Maya Civilization. We will discover the exact locality of this civilization, how they survived, their means of communicating, their buildings (and the ruins that are still there now), the Spanish invasion and much more.

 

It's the final term, the clock is ticking away the hours, but what a term it will be!

Go Team Elder!

For our art work in the first part of the Spring Term, we looked at photography. We learnt about the history of photography and then took our own photos of around the school. We really considered the angle to take the photos at, to make them as interesting as possible. After this, we used a photo editing programme on the computer to make our pictures even more interesting - what do you think?

Welcome back for the summer term! We have all come back from Easter refreshed and ready to hit the ground running! This term will be Elder's last term at St Mary's and will present many exciting challenges, including SAT's, Calshot and transition to secondary which I know all of Elder will rise to and take on with determination and positivity! Elder have come so far since September and it has been a privilege to watch them develop and learn new skills. I am very much looking forward to spending the next term learning with such an enthusiastic group of children! Miss Quirk.

A great first two weeks back Elder!

 

A MASSIVE well done for children in need day! You all worked your spotty socks off to make sure everyone has a fantastic day and we raised lots of money for this wonderful cause!

 

Over the last two weeks, we have all be focusing really hard on our handwriting, and everyone has started collecting stickers towards climbing higher on the handwriting mountain! Well done everyone for your hard work and perseverance!

 

In English we have been writing adventure stories whilst working on our vocabulary and sentence openers. These are still work in progress but we will be sharing them in a sharing assembly very soon!

 

Please have a look at some of our pictures from our learning so far!

In PE with Mr Maliphant Elder have been learning coaching techniques to work with younger children and develop their skills. They worked in groups to design and set up 4 different games. Ash class then joined us for the session to try out the activities with Elder as coaches. There was lots of learning and fun to be had!

In topic we have been looking at climate change. We investigated how much rubbish we create in a day in our packed lunches and then how much rubbish we would create over a whole year. We worked out that in a year our class would create 12,012 pieces of rubbish from lunches alone! We then discussed what we could do to reduce the amount of rubbish.
