Year 6 Computing Roadshow

Date: 27th Nov 2019 @ 6:40pm

Today we welcomed ‘The Code Show’ to our school to show us computers through the ages. The children were able to experience Nintendo games, Commodore 64, Amstrad, BBC computer, a typewriter, Atari, Amiga, as well as the first electric car, The Sinclair C5! The children had so much fun tinkering with these technologies!

Welcome to Year 6

Date: 15th Nov 2018 @ 1:05pm

Welcome to Year 6!

In Year 6 we consolidate previous learning whilst tackling new topics, all within our growth mindset culture and using collaborative learning techniques.

In History, we use the skills we have learnt to enable us to make comparisons of leisure throughout the 20th Century. We will then look at a local study of Trafford.

During our Geography topics we will focus on our local area using map skills and looking at Manchester Airport.

In Science we look at humans, particularly the respiratory system; light; sound; evolution and inheritance; and classification. It’s a busy year!

Throughout the year we take part in a range of sports: Lacrosse, Gaelic Football and Cricket to name but a few.

In PSHE we look at a number of areas within our Jigsaw scheme as the school follow the same topics in an age-appropriate way. We find the mindful approach helps us in so many ways as we use this scheme to help us to prepare for high school and for becoming well-rounded members of society.

In Maths we display our growth mindset to its fullest. We extend our learning in a number of topics such as negative numbers, decimal numbers, fractions. We also take on a range of new topics such as: algebra and statistics; formal long division; ratio and proportion.

We write across a range of genres including: suspense; persuasive writing; instructions; non-fiction; letters; biographies. We like to demonstrate all of our spelling and grammar learning within our writing.

Safer Internet Day in the Junior Department

Date: 5th Feb 2019 @ 8:00pm

Today the children in our school supported Safer Internet Day. The day started with an assembly by Mrs Needham who taught the KS2 department about what it means to consent to something and how we should ask permission before doing something online.

After, the digital leaders acted out some drama scenes which showed some incorrect behaviours online. The children then made suggestions about what should have happened.

All the children received their own St Vincent’s orange wristband to remind them of the messages from the day!

Each child also made a pledge about how they are going to behave online. You can see these displayed on the classroom windows. 

Other activities the children completed were: a safer internet survey, an online choices quiz, drawing the internet activity and data jargon buster.

The Year 5 & 6 children had a fantastic workshop this afternoon by Ian Richardson from Intqual Pro. He taught the children about how to behave online, how to keep a safe password and just how many devices are connected to the internet including pillows and toasters!!! The session was ended with an interactive quiz and prizes. Well done to the winners and thank you to Ian Richardson and Barry Searle from Intqual Pro.

The day ended with the Digital leaders all receiving a GOLD note to thank them for all their effort and hard work over the last few weeks in preparation for today!

We hope all the children have enjoyed the day and learned lots about consent and correct behaviours when online.

Good luck to all the children in completing their ‘What would you do?’ homework.
