Rabbits Class - Year 6
Mrs. N. Gifford (Rabbits Class Teacher Y6)
Mrs. E Barrett (PPA Teacher )
Mrs. J. Jones (LSA)
Year Six is the final year in Key Stage Two; we use cross-curricular projects in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other. Each project is planned carefully to meet the needs and capabilities of the child. We aim to develop the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes necessary for your child's whole development. We embrace 'Learning Without Limits' where children are not put into boxes but are given the space to grow and to surprise themselves (and us) about what they can achieve.

RABBITS CLASS (Y6) 2022-23
People of the Rainforest Wow Day! Term 5
This term's project was kicked off by researching the Ancient Maya Civilisation and exploring their beliefs and traditions. We found out that the Ancient Maya made masks for different reasons and from different materials. We made our own Maya masks and created war and event tribal dances. We designed and then created a mask of our choice: battle masks (to frighten the enemy!), event masks (inspired by animals) or death masks (to protect us in the afterlife - symbolising our souls).
Science Week Term 4
During Science Week we explored all different kinds of connections that happen in our bodies. We focussed in on the human heart and created a real-life working model of how the heart works. We also created PowerPoints and Information Posters to explain the process. As part of our English work, we also wrote scientific explanation texts about our circulatory system. We are now experts about the workings of our hearts and the journey of blood in our bodies!
Change for Life! Wow Day Term 3
We became fossil hunters for the day to launch our 'Change for Life!' project this term. This included making mould and cast shell fossils, finding the location of dinosaur fossils in the UK and carefully uncovering real fossils to identify!
WWII Project Wow Day! Term 2
BUILDING ANDERSON SHELTERS AND MAKING CIRCUITS TO SEND SECRET MORSE CODE MESSAGES!
HOUSE CAPTAINS AND VICE CAPTAINS
Greek Gods Wow Day! Term 1
Welcome to our Rabbits Class page and a brand new school year (along with new class names)! The children return on Monday September 5th where they will start their journey in Year 6 - we are so excited about all the new experiences and responsibilities that they will have! These include: Year R Buddies, Year Six Camp, a trip to the Life Skills Centre in Bristol, sitting on the benches in the hall in worship (very important!), being CREW worship leaders, an awesome term 6 dramatic performance and the opportunity to stand for House Captain and Vice Captain!
The first week back will be our induction week where we will create class contracts and revisit expectations of learning and behaviour. The week will end with the sharing of our learning with the rest of the school. The following week (day to be confirmed) we will have our Ancient Greek Wow Day to launch our Term One project!
All messages and displays of work will be sent through our ClassDojo system. This is where you can get in contact to ask questions, see children's learning and stay up-to-date with everything that is happening in Year 6 and in the school.
YEAR 6 2021-22
Term 5/6 - People of the Caribbean
Our project this term is, 'People of the Caribbean'. We will be exploring the culture of the Caribbean islands and looking into their history. Our key concept is 'fairness and justice' and we will be asking the question, 'Do we live in a fair world?' We will kick off our Caribbean learning with a colourful, Caribbean Carnival day where we will be tasting different Caribbean fruits, doing calypso dance, artwork and designing and making our own fruit smoothies!
Term 3/4 - Change...for Life!
Our project this term is, 'Change for Life!' The children will be exploring changes that occur in life on earth in a variety of different ways - starting off with evolution and how we can find out information from the past. We will also then be looking at inheritence (including human traits), changes in life-cycles, how cycles in our bodies work - such as the circulatory system and how to stay fit and healthy!
'FOSSIL HUNTERS' WOW DAY!'
We started this term by delving into the past and becoming paleontologists for the day! We studied fossils closely to identify different types of fossils (even a genuine fossil of parts of a triceratops' bone!), created information posters about how fossils are formed and created our own mold and cast fossils. We will be excavating our own fossil next week!
