Welcome to the Wonderful Year 6 Web page!
Welcome to Year 6!
Thursday evening and we’re having a brilliant time. The weather has continued to be warm so we have enjoyed chilling in our cabins and playing out
side. We’ve challenged ourselves in the abseiling, climbing, vertical challenge and tunnel trail with many of us overcoming our fears but are looking forward to seeing our families again. Who knew that one of the lessons we’d learn when we came away was how to pack a suitcase!
Wifi has been very weak in the last couple of days so it’s difficult to upload lots of photos – we’ll put more up over the weekend.
Our Year 6 children are having a brilliant week so far at PGL! The sun is shining again today and they are all really enjoying their activities while developing their team work, resilience and determination and also making new friendships along the way. The children have really settled into the week and have now had a much better nights sleep ready for a full day of exciting activities. So far they’ve all canoed, been on the giant swing, flew down the zipwire, shot rifles and fenced off against each other along with many more! Please see the following link for more photos and look out for any letters and postcards that should hopefully be with you before the end of the week! Click here for more: PGL Photos
100 Books to Read in Year 6 – How many of these books can you read before you leave Hazelwood
Please ensure that your child has his/her PE kit in school. This year, 6M and 6O will be having PE on Wednesdays and Thursday each week and 6R will be having PE on Mondays and Thursdays.
Our Year 6 pupils have started this half-term learning all about their new science topic of electricity! After a quick re-cap from what they learnt during Year 4, they moved onto learning all the different scientific symbols for each component in a circuit and began to draw their own simple circuits using these too. The children then used energy sticks to make a human circuit to explore what happens when a circuit breaks, which they all absolutely loved investigating!
They have also made a start on our brand-new Hazelwood curriculum learning all about The Indus Valley and Mountains in both their history and geography lessons. Even within the first few weeks, children have been able to articulate detailed answers about what they have been learning about using very technical and specific language in their responses, which the staff have been incredibly impressed with so far.
In addition, to also help them understand even more unfamiliar words and phrases within lessons, they have been playing games of Snakes & Ladders in whole class reading as a fun way to unpick the vocabulary and help them develop new words that they can now use in their own writing from our weekly text too!
