Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 6 and Team Turquoise!

 Your Classteachers are Mrs Vipond and Mrs Holman.

Your teaching assistants are Mrs Pullen and Miss Lynas.



Another fantastic week in Team Turquoise! In Maths, we have been revising how to tell read the time on an analogue clock and looked at a method for adding minutes and hours onto given times. In English, we have started work on our new book, 'Oceanology'. We thought about what our submarine might have inside (to explore the depths of the oceans) and what creatures we might encounter! In Science, we have been finding out that a measure of fitness is how quickly our heart rate recovers after exercise and we have been keeping an exercise diary to see if we have hit the target of 150 minutes per week! In RE, we have been learning how Buddhists' beliefs affect their life choices, including which job they would do. We have also been rehearsing for our play, 'The Next Big Step'. Well done to everyone for their commitment to learning their lines and working so hard in rehearsals.


Next week, we will be learning a strategy for subtracting hours and minutes in Maths, and in English, we will be thinking further about our expedition under the sea! In Science, we will be looking at the impact that diet has our bodies and in RE, how Buddhists' feel and how they act in reaction to others' suffering. Next week is also Sports Week and we will be trying a new sport every day, ending with a trip to Astley Cooper School to play golf!


Well done for a super week, have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!


Congratulations to this Week's Stars and Top Ten Rockers!

WC 10.05.2021 This week in Science, we have recreated the Circulatory System using ourselves. We were either blood cells or organs!
