Silkstone Primary School

A School with Soul

Welcome to Class Six

 

In class 6 our class teacher is Mrs Morgan and our teaching assistant is Mrs Ellis. We are a happy class and we encourage each other to be the best that we can be!

The children can receive a range of rewards for doing well. We have a marble jar and we can collect marbles when we are working well together as a team. Once we fill the jar, we have a class treat! The children can also earn certificates to be taken home or take an item from the goody bag for individual rewards. 

This year your child will be set a Reading Challenge. We hope that they will read with you at home three times every week. Please make a comment in your child’s reading record which is to be handed in on Fridays so we can track their progress towards this challenge. Homework will be set using Seesaw. There will be a spelling task every Friday.  Every Monday, there will either be a reading comprehension or a maths task.  

This year, P.E will be taught on Mondays and Fridays so your child will need to bring their PE kit to school on these days.  Swimming kit will be needed on Mondays in the Autumn term.

Christmas Bread

We are looking forward to selling our bread at the Christmas Fayre!

 

Father Christmas

We enjoyed our visit to see Father Christmas in his grotto.  He was very kind and gave us an early Christmas present.

Christmas Bread

Class 6 learnt how to explain the science behind bread-making today. Everyone helped to add the ingredients and knead the dough. We explored how bread can be made with and without eggs and oil, then tasted the difference. We are looking forward to designing our Christmas breads to sell at the fayre!

 

The Taste Test

Class 6 have really enjoyed tasting different Christmas breads and are looking forward to designing and making their own breads to sell at the Christmas Fayre.

Fabric Lenny
Class 6 thoroughly enjoyed working with Fabric Lenny. He inspired them with collaborative mirror drawings and responding to music through art. Then, the children learnt how to make observational drawings with one continuous line.
They were then able to complete their vases using their patterns and drawings in the style of Fabric Lenny. We think they look amazing!

 

A Grand Day Out!

Year 6 crammed RE, Art and History into their visit to Leeds.  They visited the Sikh Temple, Leeds City Art Gallery and Leeds Museum to enrich their learning across the curriculum.

Visit to Leeds City Art Gallery

Class 6 were inspired by the artwork at Leeds City Art Gallery. After reading The Charge of the Light Brigade by Tennyson, the children marvelled at the painting up close. They were also able to admire the work of Charmaine Watkiss and appreciate her life-size drawings and respond to these thoughtfully.

Visit to Leeds Museum

At the Leeds Museum, class 6 explored real artefacts to learn more about the Ancient Greeks. They worked in teams to find certain pieces in the museum and then delivered a presentation to the rest of the class to summarise their new learning. They are excited to learn more as they see themselves as young archaeologists.

The Sikh Temple, Chapeltown.

Visiting the Sikh Temple is an experience our class 6 will never forget! They were very respectful inside the worship room and listened carefully to learn more about Sikhism from the Sikh who showed us around. Then they enjoyed the langar: sitting on the floor together to share snacks and a drink. 

Collage Work

Class 6 have been inspired by artist Emmie Van Biervliet to create these intriguing collages using a range of textures. We think they look amazing when they are displayed together as one landscape.

Greek Vases

Class 6 have really enjoyed working collaboratively to build their vases this afternoon during their art lesson. We are looking forward to working with artist Fabric Lenny to complete these with collage and drawings.nter text...
