Class 6F 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 6F!
We are looking forward to a great final year at Flixton Primary School.
Library is on Thursday.
PE is Monday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor).
Reading Racetrack books due in every Friday.
We have been thinking about our school rules and
how we can demonstrate them.
Art - Moving Figures
To begin our topic on 'Movement' we took a video or continuous photographs of the sequence of one movement. Following on, we looked at the footage then recreated the process of moves in 6 figures.
Well done, Theo - great summer reading...
History - What evacuation was really like.
We looked at photographs and used inference to offer ideas of what was actually going on. Then, we conducted a role play where the children were given evacuee identities and spoke to each other about their experiences:
To finish the activity, they were asked to order themselves with the graded information that they had as to which evacuee had a horrible, difficult evacuation to those who had a wonderful, happy experience:
STEM Day at Wellacre
We had a great day sampling lessons in connection with science, technology, engineering and maths:
Look at our new furniture...
...tidy classroom and new desks means tidy minds and great work!
Maths Problem Solving
We were given a task to analyse and investigate a table. Having just got new desks, it was an activity that interested us. We had to collect measurements and details about a desk in order to replicate it. See more pictures in the gallery.
History - The Home Front
We carried out an activity to find out how Britain was able to stand firm against the German threat, on the home front. Lots of research and enquiry boxes ticked.
Look at our photos in the gallery...
PE - Gymnastics
In PE this term we are working with Total Gymnastics to develop our skills. More photos in the gallery below.
Geography Skills Lesson
Using longitude and latitude to locate countries and cities within Europe and the world.
Art - Movement Collage
Using a variety of techniques for a figure to show movement:
Look at the gallery below for more pictures.
We re-enacted scenes from some home front photographs.

Buddhist Temple Visit
DT - Making our Fairground Rides
After weeks of research and analysis, we eventually came to the making part of this project and all groups successfully constructed different rides.
We were lucky to have a morning with Mrs Tatham making a chocolate log. They look good enough to sell, never mind eat! Now, we are definitely ready for Christmas.
Welcome back - we have an exciting term ahead...
Art - Making our maquettes
Using inspiration from the sculptor Alberto Giacometti, we have begun the first phase of our own sculptures - showing movement. See how we began the making process in the gallery below.
Having a civilised debate!?
We are all thoroughly enjoying our set text - Goodnight Mister Tom. It is set during World War 2 and it is about an evacuee (Willie) and his experiences staying in the countryside with an older gentleman (Tom). We have come to the point in the story when Willie goes back to London and Tom has to decide whether to go and check he is okay because he hasn't heard from him for a month.
We set up a debate - for and against him going to London and from the pictures, you can see it was quite lively!
Continuing making Giacometti sculptures
This gives you an idea of the tidy and neat process of covering our maquettes in mod roc...
Geography - Introducing St Lucia
In groups, the children had to guess or make an informed decision as to where in the world they thought St Lucia was. They put an X on their world map and then we ordered them according to the distance away from the actual location. Here are the results - Ben's team led the way:
We are working hard to help Mr Moulton tackle lots of jobs outside, like digging holes...
...good job, team!
Beginning our next DT Topic
We began the analysis part of 'Making Flowers' in DT where we looked at the component parts of a flower - so we know exactly how to make each part.
A Refreshing PE Session After Half Term

World Book Day
We had a lovely afternoon with the nursery children, on World Book Day, sharing outdoor skills and books.
Helpful way to remember geographic vocabulary...
In order to remember key types of coastal erosion, the children were introduced to 'The Secret Art of Coastal Kung Fu'
Learning through actions and music certainly livened up our Friday afternoon:
