This week year 6 have been recapping  what  biographies and  autobiographies are.

 We have gone over  what they mean, an autobiography means when you write about yourself and a biography means when you write about someone else. Our task was to create a biography about our partners including when they were born, where were they born, anecdotes and much more.                                                                                                                        

Also this week the whole school have had an art and DT week. Year 6 have been creating 3D models and have been knitting their own cushion.

DT week

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 6 Blog

This week year 6 have been learning about ,how to create a rolercoaster. We have been planning how to construct a ride and create our project. We have been working our socks off this whole week trying to create a ride that actually works. 

We've been following steps to make our way through this amazing chance of a lifetime (we are going to be making our ride in approximately three weeks.)

We have been constructing rides such as ferris wheels, carousels and merry go rounds.

GOOGLE EXPEDITION!!!!

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 6 Blog

On Friday 10th March 2017, one of Google’s workers came to Marsden with something out of this world. A VR. Basically, a VR is a pair of goggles that let you see different thing as though you are really there. To make these activated, because we are year 6, Mrs Mac connected the iPad to the pixel phone that was attached to the VR. Year 6 explored different places such as rain forests, jungles and underwater adventures. We even saw a baby python lurking in the rain forest! We also searched for sharks, bugs and other unique animals. Every child was only given two minutes so that they wouldn’t feel queasy or sick. It was an exciting experience and we hope to try it again!

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 6 Blog

After all the preparation,the time had come. SATS! This week ,Year 6 showed how knowledgeable they really are, by taking on tests. There  was 6 papers such as :math papers 1,2,3 , spag and spelling and  last but not least the reading paper.

 Hesitating was no problem, because they were fully prepared,after all the hard work and enthusiasm. Luckily for Year  6 they are being awarded a party and many more fun treats.

Behaviour Policy

Behaviour 

Individuals in Year 6 have been excellent in their behaviour but for some, not quite. Everyone has tried their very best to make sure their behaviour is perfect so that they will do well in school. Behaviour is a very strict policy in our school, especially for year 6. As you may know, we have a card system with three cards: Green, Yellow and Red. We used to have traffic lights, but since children didn’t change and improve their behaviour, we had to sort out another system that would change boy’s and girl’s attitude towards learning.

 

What do the cards represent?

The green card represents excellent work and effort in their learning and they get sent to Mrs. Delamere or Mrs Charlsworth. The yellow card represents that you have not been listening to the given orders and the second card means that you have not improved and responded to the rules a second time, meaning you are sent to another class. The last card is red and you are sent to the head teacher’s office for serious consequences.

On Friday 10th March 2017, one of Google’s  workers came to Marsden  with something out of this world. A VR ( virtural reality). Basically, a VR is a pair of goggles that let you see different things as though you are really there. To  activate these goggles, our teacher connected these to the ipad. Inside the goggles was a pixel phone was placed inside the VR.  Year 6 explored different places such as rain forests, jungles and underwater adventures. We even saw a baby python lurking in the rain forest! We also searched for sharks, bugs and other unique animals. Every child was only given two minutes so that they wouldn’t feel queasy or sick.It felt so real and was an exciting experience and we hope to try it again!

Sow & Grow

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 6 Blog

6S have taken part in a planting competition with a variety of other schools. Each individual was given a Sow & Grow pot and either a runner bean seed, a cress seed or a carrot seed. To keep track of the best grower each week, 6S have set up a growing chart. Every pupil has been given responsibility to water their plant every day by pouring approximately 100 ml into their soil. At the end most plants should be excellent and be fully grow. However, if they drown their plant, they won't have a second chance.
