Year 6 Music Making
The children have been learning about the pentatonic scale with five notes. They were proud of their accomplishment in one lesson.
We gave thanks to God for the food on our plates which we were able to appreciate through our science lesson based on healthy eating. It took our breath away when we saw the colours of the rainbow from the different fruits of the earth. We had a moment to reflect, say thank you to God and write a prayer to recognise how our Lord has thought of our every need. We hope you enjoy of the prayers we wrote:
Thank you for blessing us with the wonderful and precious, natural foods from your earth.
Thank you for the adorable taste and the beautiful experience of life with you.
Thank you for this magnificent food and its wonderful flavours.
Help us to be grateful and realise not all the people of the world are as fortunate as us.
Help us to protect your planet and not to harm it any more.
Help us to ensure future generations will have this blessing in their lives too.
Year 6 have been busy weighing, mixing, baking, chopping and most importantly enjoying the foods they have prepared in class:
Victoria sponge – we baked this classic cake to celebrate the end of our history topic on the Victorians. This cake became popular after it is believed that Queen Victoria desired the plain sponge cake to be served with cream and jam!
Healthy eating plate – this was linked to our science topic of Animals including humans. Year 6 recognise the importance of good physical and mental well-being. In order to promote this, eating a balanced diet is key. Year 6 planned and prepared a healthy plate to include half the quantity to consist of fruit and vegetables and the other half to include the other food groups. Their taste buds positively danced and tickled with delight!
Year 6 trip was a roaring success culminating in an explosion of technology as they met Queen Victoria herself and enjoyed some games with her in her very own bedroom.
Maths and Shapes
Year 6 made Christmas memory boxes. Using complex nets made up of trapeziums and rectangles, a lot of maths talk was generated.

Our pictures do all the explaining!
Making Victorian toys
Using paper, wood and tape, Year 6 made a traditional toy called cup and ball. They had tremendous fun through making such a simple toy.
“This toy made my class very excited and competitive! It certainly cheered up Victorian Day.
Victorian Christmas decoration
A Christmas tradition was brought back to life. With cloves, cinnamon and rosemary, our classroom smelt truly of Christmas…Year 6 also achieved an eco-friendly way of decorating the home at Christmas time through using dried fruit.
Year 6 used woodwork to make mitre corners and create a frame for their art work. They learned how to place wood into a jig to guide their sawing.
“I can’t believe I made this frame with my hands. I learned so many new skills like sawing and I feel very proud of my work.
Stones & Bones
As part of our Stones and Bones topic, for homework the children had to design and make made stone age artefacts using mostly recycled items. They made stone age shelters, stone age tools and stone age jewellery! Well done Year 3, you are talented craftspeople!
