.Welcome to Year 6 2017 - 2018
Autumn Term 2
Our topic is WWII and we have been on a visit to The Fusiliers Museum, in Bury, to help us with our learning. We had great fun dressing as evacuees and exploring the artefacts in the museum.
Autumn Term 1
Well we all back into the swing of things now and enjoying the challenge of Y6. We have taken on lots of new responsibilities including class prefects, house captains, and lunchtime leaders to name just a few.
We are reading a fantastic book called Stormbreaker by Anthony Horrowitz and now we are starting to compare it to the movie version which is great fun! we've done lots of writing including secret notes, spy journal entries and describing a villains lair.
We have been lucky to have badminton coaching with a real badminton coach and also brass music lessons every Friday.
In addition we have been having fun exploring our ID topic, especially studying fingerprints and how to identify them!
The children in Year 6 have been looking at a poem for Harvest it is called 'When We See The Harvest'. The children will be working on their performance of the poem in school next week for the Harvest Service on Friday 20th October. We have included the poem below for anyone wishing to practise at home.
When We See The Harvest
A harvest of apples, a harvest of corn;
A harvest of plenty, an autumn adorned.
With bright coloured leaves, a fall festive blend;
A wonderful time for families and friends.
A harvest of pumpkins, a harvest of grain;
A harvest of bounty, and cool autumn rains.
A big harvest moon-way up in the sky;
A harvest of blessing that God has supplied.
Be grateful, be humble, give thanks to the Lord;
He has showered His blessing here in our world.
But have we been faithful, and have we been true?
Have we put God first in all that we do?
A harvest that God sees is not food or crop;
Not pumpkins, or grain, not apples that drop.
A harvest is of souls and a harvest is of love;
A harvest of mercy from our Father above.
Then we see the harvest, lets see through God's eyes;
And share with the nations the life He supplies.
