***MISS WALK'S EMAIL PROBLEMS ARE NOW RESOLVED. SHE IS WORKING THROUGH THE MOUNTAIN OF EMAILS AND WILL GET BACK TO YOU SOON! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!***
MISS WALK AND MRS GOGNA WELCOME YOU TO YEAR 6'S PAGE.
Hello Year 6! You've made it - the last week of your time at primary school! I'm sure you are filled with a mixture of emotions especially as it has been an incredibly strange year.
It has been lovely to see so many of you in school these past weeks and I'm looking forward to spending time with you in your last week. For those who are not in school, we are all missing you terribly and can't wait until we can all see each other again when we have our postponed end of year party, when it is possible to hold it safely.
Well done for being so resilient, thoughtful and positive these past few months - you have been a real credit to yourselves and your families, and I know that these qualities will stand you in good stead for when you start secondary school in September. Make sure you have a wonderful, restful summer and I can't wait to see you in Autumn when you can tell me all about your new schools!
It has been a real pleasure teaching you this year, and I will miss you all.
MATHS - This week, a murder mystery challenge! Can you solve the maths questions to give you the coded clues, then use the clues to work out the murderer?
CLICK HERE for the booklet.

ENGLISH - What have been your best memories of the year? What was your favourite lesson? What outdoor activity did you enjoy the most? Which book did you really enjoy - perhaps it was The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas? Complete the reflection and send it to me - I'd love to know what you really enjoyed this year!
CLICK HERE for the activity.
HISTORY 8 - This week, we are looking at how cars have changed over time. How has their shape changed? How are they powered?
Your task is to design a car for the future. A climate-friendly car! So, think carefully about what will power your vehicle... fossil fuels probably shouldn't be used!
CLICK HERE for the information.
CLICK HERE for the website with extra information (click on the cars to find more).
SCIENCE 8 - The lunar phase or Moon phase is the shape of the directly sunlit portion of the Moon as viewed from Earth. Find out more information by watching the short video (click here) then read the slides and complete the worksheets below:-

CLICK HERE for the questions.
ART 7 - We've come to the end of our unit on landscapes and we've learnt so much about art techniques and famous artists. So, it's over to you now.
Create your own dream landscape. Maybe it's somewhere you'd like to go on holiday, like a paradise island such as Tahiti, where Paul Gauguin eventually lived. Perhaps it's the countryside with fields and fields of flowers, like Claude Monet. Or maybe it's a village by the sea, like Vincent van Gogh.
Wherever you'd like to be, create your landscape using whichever medium you want (paint, felt tips, crayons, colouring pencils, even biro). I look forward to seeing them!
***EXTRA ART AND SECONDARY TRANSITION WILL BE POSTED ON WEDNESDAY***
HELLO, YEAR 6! I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A LOVELY WEEKEND AND MAYBE GOT TO SEE SOMEONE, EITHER FAMILY OR FRIEND, THAT YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IN A WHILE NOW THAT LOCKDOWN IS STARTING TO EASE. MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE STILL FOLLOWING THE GUIDANCE AND STAY SAFE!
MATHS - WHITE ROSE W/C 6.7.20 CO-ORDINATES, TRANSLATION AND REFLECTION
This week, we're doing some alternative White Rose Maths lessons as we have already covered the lessons on the main White Rose site. So, I have put the video links and the worksheets on below.
ENGLISH - OAK NATIONAL ACADEMY WEEK 11 BIOGRAPHY - CLICK HERE.
HISTORY 7 - How did the industrial revolution impact on transport? What were the demands of transport between 1760 – 1840? Find out more below.
SCIENCE 6 - What time is it right now where we live? Is it the same time currently in Paris? What about New York? Tokyo? Sydney? We will continue our learning about the Earth's rotation and now develop our understanding of time zones around the world.
To complete the worksheets you will need to use the following website - https://www.timeanddate.com/time/map/
SCIENCE 7 - What happens when there is an eclipse? Did you know that there are two types of eclipse? Read the text to find out more, then answer the questions.
ART 6 - This week, we are focusing on Kandinsky's use of shape and colour to create landscapes. Read through the information slides to recap all that we've learnt in our unit. Then, create the four landscapes in the style of Kandinsky.
SECONDARY TRANSITION 3 - WHAT IS YOUR MINDSET WHEN FACED WITH A CHALLENGE? DO YOU TRY HARD OR GIVE UP? DO YOU THINK YOU'LL NEVER GET BETTER AT SOMETHING OR THINK YOU JUST NEED TIME?
This week, we are learning about growth mindset and the resilience we need to keep going.
CLICK HERE AND FOLLOW THE LINKS ON THE WEBSITE TO LEARN ABOUT HOW YOUR BRAIN GROWS AND A GROWTH MINDSET.
Over the last two weeks, Year 6 have been learning about how artists use colour and lines to create their work.
We've learnt how Paul Gauguin used complementary colours and bold outlines, and how Vincent Van Gogh used lines to add texture.
We recreated a tropical landscape in both styles. Check out our fabulous work!
A big 'Well done' to Ella and Shaivi for completing the art work at home. They've created some lovely landscapes that show God's creation, experimented with 3D effects and the use of colour like Kandinsky.
HELLO, YEAR 6! I'M SORRY IF YOU'VE NOT HAD A REPLY TO ANY EMAILS YOU'VE SENT ME - I'M HAVING EMAIL PROBLEMS AGAIN. FINGERS CROSS IT WILL BE FIXED SOON!

SCIENCE 5 - Why do we sometimes see shadows? How can shadows show that the Earth rotates? This week you are going to carry out an investigation by creating your very own sundial and record your findings.
R.E 3 - Today (Monday 29th June) is the Feast Day of St Peter and St Paul. St Peter is often called the first Pope, as he was the rock on which the church was built. So, we are going to think about the current head of the Catholic Church - Pope Francis. What does his role entail? What are his responsibilities? Read through the slides and the fact cards below, then create a poster or leaflet about Pope Francis, including as many facts as possible.
HISTORY 6 - Knowing how much you all love your bikes, I thought we would learn about how bicycles have developed over time. Cut each bicycle invention out then stick them on the correct part of the timeline. Be careful though - the timeline does not go up in one year intervals!
ART 5 - We are learning about the use of lines this week. Learn about the different types of line you can use and about some famous artists who used this technique, such as Vincent Van Gogh. Then, using the same exotic landscape you used last week, recreate it using lines. Compare your two pictures - which do you prefer?
SECONDARY TRANSITION 2 - This week, our focus is on finding out as much as we can about our secondary schools by exploring their website. You will probably find that you will need to use your school's website to access homework, so this will help you to get used to navigating around it.
Use the website as much as you can to answer the questions. Can't find the answer on the website? You could either email the school or take any unanswered questions on your first day in September.
GOOD MORNING, YEAR 6! IT'S BEEN SO LOVELY TO SEE SO MANY OF YOU RETURNING TO SCHOOL. IF YOU ARE AT HOME, WE ARE ALL MISSING YOU!

Year 6 Residential Visit to Aberdovey
16th to 20th March 2020
Diary and photographs
Friday 20th March
After finishing packing for the journey home both groups gathered with their instructors for a review of the week and shared moments that will hopefully be lifetime memories.
The two groups then came together for a game of 'Giants, Wizards and Dwarves' before saying our goodbyes and setting off on our journey home.
Thursday 19th March
The Churchill group went out on canoes this morning and reached a sand bank exposed by the low tide for some fun games. This group then took on the 'Jetty Jump' this afternoon.
The Mallory group went by minibus to a stony beach at Tonfannau and, after a walk, the group practiced some climbing skills before taking on a challenging rock face with their class mates 'spotting' them and taking on safety roles.
The two groups met at the ice cream shop in Aberdovey at about 4.00 p.m.
After dinner there was a lot of organising of equipment and cleaning boots to be done. The Churchill group had a very brief campfire. This evening there has been some packing done but in for some of the children their main challenge of the week will be to get their suitcase closed!
Wednesday 18th March
Today the Mallory group were on the Outward Bound site this morning and took on the 'Nightline' course (photographs to follow).
The Churchill group were on site this morning taking on games. In the early afternoon this group were taken by powerboat across the estuary to explore the beach and dunes at Yns las. The Mallory group walked to Aberdovey and followed the Churchill group on powerboats in the afternoon for a Beach Explore on Yns las.
The Mallory group then took on the infamous Jetty Jump later in the afternoon. The Churchill group returned to the Outward Bound site for a Skipping challenge with a difference.
Tuesday 17th March.
Both of the groups; Churchill and Mallory were out exploring the locality today. Wearing and carrying equipment provided by the Outward Bound Centre the children found out a lot about the environment and themselves.
Both groups were back on site in the late afternoon, with the Churchill group taking on the on-site gorge walk - a cold and wet experience.
In the evening both groups were orienteering on the Outward Bound site.
Monday 16th March
We arrived at The Outward Bounds Centre in Aberdovey at approximately 1.00 p.m. and, after washing our hands, had lunch.
We split up into our two groups; the Churchill group led by Will, supported by Miss Walk and the Mallory group led by Tom, supported by Mr Corkery.
After settling into our rooms, all in the same block, the two groups went separately to the estuary for the first activity 'Jog and Dip'. The photographs do not show how cold the water was, but I am sure that the children will testify to this when they return home.
After dinner, we had evening activities on the site. This mainly involved getting individual equipment from the 'Stores' and storing it in each of the groups 'cages'.
The evening activities finished at 8.30 p.m. and at 9.00 p.m. we had hot chocolate.
The children were back in their 'block' by 9.30 p.m. and to bed for 10.00 p.m.
All is quiet at the moment!
At this time there are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in the county of Gwynedd, in which Aberdovey is located.

It was a fun trip and we did so much cool things there, I really enjoyed the rock climbing too.
hope you all had a great time bye
This trip was really fun I missed home though. I really recommend to go. My favourite part was the Jetty Jump it might seem scary and high but when you do it its SO MUCH FUN but if you don't want to do it you don't have to nearly everyone in team Mallory did it. The food there was also good so to anyone going next year don't be afraid that there will be no food you like because there is loads of choices.I hope everyone is safe.
It was so fun and I missed my family a lot but its a shame it went to fast.
Fabulous trip! Thank you Miss W and Mr Corkery for arranging this trip!
The trip was absolutely amazing, shame it went by so fast!

Homework is due in by Wednesday each week.
Children will receive three tasks: Maths, English and Spellings.
Year 6: it is your responsibility to make sure homework is completed and submitted on time. Miss W :-)
SCIENCE - THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
We have been learning about how our blood is made up of different components. We made 'blood smoothies' to represent how our blood is a mixture of components.
raspberries for the red blood cells
mini meringues for the white blood cells
'hundreds and thousands' for the platelets
pineapple juice for the plasma.
Some of us really enjoyed the smoothies. Others weren't so keen!
WORLD WAR II ASSEMBLY
Enjoy watching Year 6 sharing their learning from this half term about World War II.
MATHS - ROUNDING
In Maths, we have been working on rounding whole numbers and decimals in our place value unit. Miss Walk set us a challenge - could we solve the rounding questions to complete the jigsaw? A lot of us found it tricky, but we kept going!
ENGLISH - PERFORMANCE POETRY
To start the school year, Year 6 have been exploring World War II poetry. Check out some of our performances!
