Year 6 2018/19

Welcome to Year 6 at Stradbroke!

No, Y6 is not all about SATs.

Y6 is also about trips, experiences, a fabulous residential, a wonderful end-of-year performance, the most humorous staff in the school and so much more!

Staff:

  • Mr Bavington - Class teacher
  • Mr Mills - Class teacher
  • Mrs Hines - HLTA
  • Mrs Martin - Maths Teacher
  • Mr Nash - Literacy Support

Summer Term

During the Summer term, Y6 will be studying 'Tales From the Sea'.

In what promises to be an exciting end to their time at Stradbroke Primary School, during the Summer Term, Y6 will delve into the world of cinematic performance and learn all about Vampires, Ghosts and Ghouls, how they have been portrayed in the acting industry and who these characters have been based upon. Starting with Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', Y6 will analyse the techniques used in classics such as 'Nosferatu' and develop ways to build tension and engage an audience.

As part of this topic we will turn our classroom into a newsroom and report on Dracula's attacks around Whitby. We will also take part in a debate and examine evidence, justify our reasons and deliver a verdict of guilty/not guilty on each of the main suspects (Vampire Teachers!) for their crime.

Finally, the children will say farewell in the traditional Stradbroke manner as we tackle the sensational, seafaring end of year leavers' performance!

Spring Term

During the Spring term, Y6 will be studying the Dark Arts.

This will commence with us analysing the fictional narrative Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, immersing ourselves into the role of a wizard, witch or warlock through a Dark Arts Day and even becoming film critics after our arranged visit to the Showroom Cinema to watch Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

The second part of the topic will encompass Y6 studying various styles of dragon artwork (Art Nouveau, Pop Art, Manga and Renaissance) and developing artistic techniques to enhance our own creations. The children will have the opportunity to consider the differences in social and economic groups within a city such as Sheffield and how we can see parallels with the characters within our Dark Arts narratives.

Also, the children will partake in their very own inter-mural Wizard Olympics after being placed into houses by the sorcery sorting hat! Literacy and Maths will also be linked closely to this topic throughout the term ... Wingardium Leviosa!

During the Autumn term, we will be studying the Second World War. This will commence with us looking at the origins and causes of the conflict, moving on to: Life on the Home Front, Evacuees and Rationing, the Role of Women and the Holocaust.

The second part of the topic will encompass the geographical aspect of the War and will afford the children the opportunity to design and create models based on this era. Literacy will be linked to this topic throughout the term.

The Y6 cohort will visit Eden Camp historical museum and will take part in the Kingswood Residential.
