Music in Year 6

Music at Oxford Grove teaches us lots of skills. I do brass lessons every Friday and school pay for this. Within my brass lessons I learn new notes and they taught me how to read notes very quickly. Also every Friday afternoon our class goes to music lessons and our music teacher teaches us about singing and lots of instruments are played. I have not only learnt lots in these lessons but I also have lots of fun. Also, last year my whole class learned brass and drumming. I enjoy music at Oxford Grove.

DT in Year 6

So far this year we have been doing things linking to topics, but sadly this topic is our last! Our new topic will be all about designing clothes. We are designing are very own leavers’ t-shirts to wear on the last day of all our beautiful memories in school. This afternoon Year 6 have been doing some market research and also designing the front of their t-shirts that they will wear on the last day of school!

Movie Maker – Our Oxford Grove Life

Their ‘movies’ will include photographs, video clips, titles, captions and music, which will celebrate their time at this school. What have you enjoyed so far about working on your ‘movies?’ Which special memories and achievements have you added?

Flashback!

In Year 6, we have been working on writing stories with a flashback – this gives the reader some information about a character’s life before the ‘now’ of the story. A flashback can be used in many different ways such as a dream, a memory, a diary entry, magic or a time machine for example.

We have watched a film clip called The Piano which is about the memories of an old man that come back to him as he is playing the piano. We have turned this into stories. If you would like to read our stories please visit our classroom where you will find them on display.
