Witton Gilbert Primary School

Well done Year 6! You have been fabulous all week. You have worked hard and tried your best, as always, and we are really proud of you. 

Sensational 6

 

Welcome to Year 6! We are all working super hard to succeed in our last year at Witton. In our class, we have Miss Howells, Miss Lockett, Mr Wilson and Mr Hunter working with us. We are leaping to success as one big crazy family. 

Long Term Plan

Timetable

Medium Term Plan

Room 13

 Not only have we written fantastic chapters inspired by Robert Swindell's book Room 13, we have also written play scripts and acted them out. Below is an example of this.

Read All About It...

Here are some examples of adverts and newspaper reports inspired by some very useful Victorian inventions.

World War 2

So far, we have discussed the different causes for WW2 and organised the triggers in to the most and least important reasons for the war to start.

Year 6 Media Team

 This half term, the Year 6 media team consists of Joe, Spencer, Lewis, Ricky and Noah. Their challenge is to create a newspaper article which will be shared with the class and parents. Here is the first edition of our Year 6 newspaper from the Newspaper team 'Read Our News'.

Below you can read the fantastic work created by members of our class last week.

The Edinburgh Trip

Sensational Scotland

Halloween

Safety Carousel

Awesome Africa

In small groups, the children researched different topics (beaches, countries, music, food, wildlife and tribes) about Africa and then created some fantastic presentations. They practised these in front of the class, who gave them constructive criticism, and then presented them to the Year 5 class.

Above are some of our finished shelters. After we constructed them, we took a photograph using an app on the iPads and we labelled them. Which one would you want to shelter in?

Book Week

Year6pupil on: The Frog Blog

On Thursday, we had a visit from Saviour Pirotta who inspired us with his stories and great advice for writing our own novels. In the morning, he did a whole school assembly and then throughout the day worked with different classes.In Year 6, he shared life experiences that influenced his career choice and shared a gruesome story with us. 

On Friday, we came to school dressed as a Shakespearean character and spent the day hurling old-fashioned insults at one another to inspire our writing about a conflict. We also re-enacted Much Ado About Nothing through freeze frames.
