Another amazing week in Year 6 !!!!!

Our feathery friends are really starting to settle in now and we have enjoyed looking after them. We can’t wait to find out what their names will be! Next week, we have decided to do our Priory’s All Write all about the ducks. What can you find out about their diet, environment, safety and care before then?

We have been working hard on multiplication in Maths and achieved some amazing CLIC and SAFE scores in the challenges today. In RE, we have been thinking about creation and what we would do if we were creators like God. We designed a mammal to live in the Canadian Arctic. Can you remember what a prehensile tail is?

In our Science work, we have become experts on human lungs. Can you summarise what we learnt?

We used our knowledge organisers to help us label European countries on a blank map and we now know what exactly we need to be self-quizzing on ready for the end of term quiz.

Our Learn Its next week will be:

6 x 6 = 36

6 x 7 = 42

7 x 7 = 49

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday! 🙂


What a good week!

To start off the week we did DARE. We all had great fun doing it and  lots of people found it very interesting . Then we did Science where we learnt about the human heart . What facts do you remember? We also had great CLIC, SAFE and Learn Its scores what did you get? We did philosophy about what made a meal . Here is a question for you: Is there a rule that it’s ok to break?

Our new Learn Its are from the six fact challenge:

Another busy week in year 6

This week we have had a new arrival in the school: the ducks. Can anyone write down any facts about the ducks?(remember that the ducks are Khaki Campbell).

Also we have just finished our Greek myth, The Odyssey; who can remember what has happened in it?

Another thing we have been doing this week is cooking: we baked a pear and almond flapjack tart and  most of us really enjoyed it!

Enrichment day was an extremely fun time, can anybody tell us  fact a bout their topic?

Finally we have all had amazing  CLIC scores, does anybody want to share their scores? 🙂 🙂

Our learn its for next week will be:

7 x 8 = 56

8 x 8 = 64

9 x 8 = 72

Harvest Challenge

Now that we have collected the fruit harvest, Y6 will be baking on Tuesday. We are going to make Pear and Almond Flapjack Tart. I was wondering whether anybody might be able to work out the cost of making one tart.

There are two ways of doing this:

You could find all of the ingredients on a shopping website such as Tesco or Asda and add the cost of each ingredient. Doing it this  way will cost more as you will have some ingredients left over.

If you really wanted to impress, you could look at the size of each packet and work out how much it would cost for the exact quantity. For example, if a 1kg bag of flour costs £1.80 but we only need 250g then the actual cost of the flour is £1.80 divided by 4 = 45p.

Here are the ingredients for one tart:

  • 500g shortcrust pastry block
  • 5 pears
  • 125g golden caster sugar
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • 125g porridge oats
  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 125g butter
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup

Marvellous Measuring
