Year 6 Topic lessons!

In year 6, we have been learning all about Ancient Greece! We’ve painted Greek pots and Greek shields, we’ve learnt about democracy in Ancient Greece, chosen our favourite Greek God and even did an assembly on Ancient Greece.

We have been making talking textiles to show the story of Theseus and the Minotaur!

Have a look:

Poetry Day!

This week 6J literacy group performed ‘Chocolate Cake’ by our class poet Michael Rosen as part of poetry week. We listened to all year 5 and 6 perform and had a fab afternoon watching different poems and learning about different authors!

Year 6 Reading Area

In 6J, we think reading is extremely important. In our reading area we have all our book recommendations as well as front covers we have designed in the style of our class author Anthony Horowitz. Our reading area is also SPY themed to match our class novel.

We also have introduced a new ‘Word of the day’ section which allows us to find out the meaning of words which we may not have heard before and for us to try and use them in our writing! Today’s word was ‘placid’ – can you remember what it means?

Take a look at some of our class in our reading area:

Reading Day

On Tuesday, it was reading day at Oxford Grove. In 6J literacy we shared our favourite books and discussed why we like reading different genres and different authors. We had lots of different books brought in! We then started reading our new class novel which is ‘Stormbreaker’ by Anthony Horowitz which we all enjoyed :)!

Take a look at some of our literacy group’s favourite books:

In art, we are still working on our topic of: How Did the Great Artists See Themselves?

We have been thinking about how we see ourselves. Last week, we each created a photo montage to represent our personalities. This is Sumayah’s:

She has done a great job of using the space on her page. She has made sure she has used a range of colours to make her collage good to look at but also chosen images that tell us about what kind of person she is.

What would you put on your photo collage?
