Welcome to Violet Class - Year 6! 

We are the eldest in the school and endeavour to be fantastic role models by challenging ourselves to reach our potential and by helping others.

Miss Goodwin, Mrs Gostelow, Mrs Harness and Miss Reed are our adult dream team here to help us throughout our final year at Primary School!

 

In Year 6 we are INDEPENDENT, MOTIVATED and CREATIVE learners. 

We work together as one big team to support one another and look out for each other.  Of course, as well as some serious brain work, we plan to have some fun along the way too! 

 

 

Year 6 Return

 

Welcome back to those violets who have returned to us at Friskney. Please ensure you have your water bottle with you everyday to keep hydrated and that you bring as little personal belongings as possible. You will need a PE kit as we are now able to participate in some sports so please bring it on a Monday and take it home on a Friday for washing. 

 

In Maths we are looking at ratio and proportion and statistics. This is going to involve some exciting baking! 

 

Our Topic is currently rainforests so we have been looking at the animals and plants that live in there, the climate and weather in rainforests and the different layers. 

 

Our Science is taught on a Fridays by Mrs Banham where we are looking at evolution and doing lots of exciting experimenting! 

 

If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, then Miss Goodwin would be happy to help. We are enjoying the end of our time at a Friskney, preparing for the next phase in our lives at secondary school! #teamfriskney :)

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Some of our class have now returned to school for morning sessions. We have been learning about rainforests and have made our own rainforest models including plants and animals found in rainforests. Some of us tried hard to replicate the layers of the rainforest too. Can you spot the animals hiding in their habitat?

Science Summer Term

Week 1

 

From now on each week I will not only upload an investigation for you to do but also a reading comprehension linked to science, sometimes it will also link to the investigation you are doing too.

 

Science based reading comprehension

Below you will find the resources. You will need the reading resource and the questions to go with it , all of which you could read on line if you would prefer rather than printing it all out.

Science Investigation

Week 3 WC 4th May

Last week you all had an investigation linked to mystery animals and this week The Linnean Society are running a competition called 'Special species competition' based on what you did last week. If you want to enter here is the link  https://www.linnean.org/learning/special-species-competition  . They are also running a free video session this Thursday at 10 am if you want to learn more about different animal species- the link is the same as above and you can book your place at the bottom of their page.

Many of you did some fantastic work based on your own designed mystery animal so I'm sure you could have a go at entering. Please let me know if you do enter and I'll keep an eye out for it on their webpage and Twitter account. 

 

I thought this week we would continue on with the animal based theme and look at classification of animals- Carl Linneaus invented the classification system which we use for animals, including humans.

On Wednesday this week the BBC Bitesize lesson will also be based around classification so it would be great if you could watch that. I have also found this link https://explorify.wellcome.ac.uk/blog/explorify-at-home-classification which has a range of videos on it and explanations which link with the BBC lesson, some of your children will recognise this website as teachers often use Explorify in the classroom.

Enjoy the science activities and I've got a new investigation and competition ready for next week.

Summer Term Week 4 WC 11th May 

The investigation and competition for this week are on the Class page for all the year groups to take part in.

Science 

I know that many of you have been doing the science activities which I've placed on a weekly basis on the general class page but from now on I will also be adding the easily accessible lessons on here which I'm teaching in school on a Friday morning.

Science Investigation WC 15th June

I know many of you have been doing the investigations which I've put on the Class Page every week but I think some of you have struggled to find them so I thought that I would also put them on here this week for you.

In normal circumstances I had planned for us all to take part in the Great Science Share this week. The Great Science Share is all about you and your own questions based around science which you ask then have a go at answering, using whichever method and whatever resources you need. So here is your challenge , you can even get a special enamel badge for taking part, many of you have experimented with the investigations and questions which I have put up each week I would like you to choose your favourite and then ask your own question linked to it. I have attached a couple of forms which you can fill in either by printing them out or filling them in on the computer and then send them off to claim your free badge. I'm looking forward to seeing all your Whizz Pop Bang badges when we are all back at school. If you are struggling to think of a question you could always use the key question starters of - what , who, why, how and when to help you. The grid below might also give you a few ideas.

Science Investigations WC 22nd June

This week is STEM Clubs Week.

Each day I will upload a learning activity on the whole school class page(see this link https://www.friskneyprimary.co.uk/class-pages/ ) which will look at a range of a different science areas. These activities will all be practical hands on opportunities which will only require a few resources from around your home.

You can also watch interviews by scientists who do a range of jobs such as Food Scientist, Spacecraft thermal engineer, oceanographic scientist and aeronautical engineer by clicking on this link: https://www.youtube.com/stemlearning
