Year 6

Welcome to Year Six

 

31st March

Morning Year 6. I have most of you now with a Showbie account and the class code has gone out to parents again. Perhaps you could check with your friends if they are logging in regularly to check for messages? Take care everyone.

 

26th March

I know some of you quite like the David Walliams books. If you follow this link, https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/?fbclid=IwAR0LNuNc0IVXO5nDvWTq6xe1Q4q7urXZDJ5-of8DKbDYpXdd4XHZJFCb7ho you will see that David Walliams is releasing a free audio story every day for the next 30 days. Might be worth a listen.

25th March

 

I hope you are all up and running now on Showbie. I have sent out information to your parents (including the code you need) for the Showbie app/website. This enables me to post work/messages to you while you are not in school. 

 

You can either find the Showbie app on the Apple app store, or through the website Showbie.com on any phone, tablet, laptop etc.

 

22nd March

 

As long as schools are closed, Amazon are offering free access to their audio book website.

Year 6, if you are looking at ways to access books at home while schools are closed, you can sign up to Leeds Libraries online where there are hundreds of   e-books that you can access and download to read at home on your tablets, phones etc. The app you need is called Borrowbox.

20th March

Horsforth Featherbank currently have a Times Tables Rockstars 'Battle of the Bands' going on - this time it is boys v girls!

It will start at 4pm on Friday and run until 4pm on Friday 3rd April.

Good luck Year 6!

Meet our school council representatives

Well done to these children for sharing their innovative ways to help Horsforth Featherbank grow; I am sure they will both be excellent representatives for Year Six this year.

So far this year, we have read 'There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom' by Louis Sachar, 'Room 13' by Robert Swindells and 'My Friend Walter' by Michael Morpurgo. This half term, our new class novel is 'Goodnight Mr Tom'by Michelle Magorian.

Kicking off World Book Week in style with a visit from author Jason Beresford

Wow! So many amazing entries for our 'decorate a potato as a book character' competition

Dressing up as adjectives for World Book Day in Year 6. Sartorial anyone?!

Year Six visit Featherbank Forest for the first time!

We finally had our Kirkstall Abbey workshop which was fantastic! We learnt about the history of the abbey, from the 30 years it took to build, until it was closed down by Henry VIII as part of the reformation.

Year 6 Big Draw!

Here are photos of our trip. We learned about how Henry VIII's Church Commissioners closed down Kirkstall Abbey as past of the Reformation.

Our latest science lesson: investigating diffusion and osmosis.

Here are the results of Year Six's 'blood smoothie'. We used strawberries, pineapple juice, sprinkles and marshmallows to represent the different components in our blood. Ask your child what ingredient represents which part of the blood!

Today we have been studying the circulatory system - specifically the heart. Using sheep hearts, we had to identify the two ventricles, the atria, the aortic value and the pulmonary artery.
