Welcome to Year 6 Foxes class
This term is packed with exciting projects. Rehearsals for the end of term production “Timelord” are well under way with the children proving to be remarkably good actors. I’m thrilled with their enthusiasm, line-learning and comedy timing!
The class began this term with a visit to a synagogue on Thursday 9th June as part of their RE studies on Judaism.

They will also have the opportunity to visit Oakbank School on the 6th July and the Year 7 team visit us to help the children face their upcoming move to “big” school on Monday 27th June. We will also take part in Stay Safe Experience at Keighley College on 21st July.
In Maths, the focus is on algebra.
English lessons will tap into the children’s super imaginations with lots of Creative Writing. We also study the thought-provoking novel Boy 87 which I hope the children are enjoying reading during the half- term break.
The children had a fantastic time at Bradford City Football Stadium on the 21st June. They enthusiastically sang and danced along to a range of music, including Plumber Drummer and Bollywood Brass Band. They listened to poetry and had the chance to hear the author of Boy 87, Ele Fountain, talk about her why she wrote the story of Shif the refugee.
The children will be challenged in History to decide if Vikings are more than their savage stereotypes and Science covers our understanding of evolution and inheritance.
This term Year 6 pupils have completed their end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests. The children have shown an amazing amount of determination, focus and resilience during the preparations, practises and tests themselves. They have risen to the challenge magnificently and we are truly proud of them as they should be of themselves.
To help the children de-stress, the rest of this term focused on Art. They produced sensitively sketched and detailed portraits of the Queen during our Jubilee celebrations, then studied the work of the Yorkshire sculptor Henry Moore. He was particularly interested in the emotional responses his sculptures created and the children channelled their own emotions as they created their own semi-abstract figures.
The class moved on to drawing pendants, challenging themselves to reproduce them in clay. Finally, they studied clay masks from around the world, using these as inspiration for their own unique creations.
During this term, the children have enjoyed a range of stories in addition to our class novels. They really enjoyed listening to Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and drew fantastically detailed pictures of Heathcliff.
World Book Day 3/3/22
The children came to school dressed as book characters.
The children learnt to play a selection of Jazz melodies on the glockenspiels.
The children combined a range of tactile materials to create collages in the style of Gustav Klimt.
Design and Technology 28/3/22
Year 6 used their understanding of form and function and applied this to researching, analysing, designing and creating a Steady Hand Game.
This term Year 6 have developed a deeper understanding of a range of ideas. They carried out scientific tests and drew conclusions based on their data and observations.
The children conducted experiments to understand how light travels in straight lines and how shadows are created. They also made periscopes to understand how light reflects.
The children conducted a fair test by building an electrical circuit to observe the brightness of a lamp.
At Worth Valley Primary School, safeguarding is of paramount importance. We are committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children and staff in school.
