Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 page. There are two classes in this cohort: Class 14 (Mrs Hickling) and Class 15 (Miss Richardson). Mr Rogers  and Mr Shaw will also be supporting us this year.

Here is some important information about Year 6.

In Year 6 we expect everyone to try their hardest – to always aim to do a little better than the day before. If we can do that, we will all do really well! In order to achieve our best there are some expectations.

  • To follow our Milford Values and school rules
  • To listen to advice and act upon it
  • To listen really well and be ready to learn, keeping a positive mind set
  • To be well organised and have everything you need in school, including a full PE kit and your reading diary

These are all achievable if we work together as a team and support each other!

This half-term has been packed full of interesting and exciting things that we can’t wait to tell you about.

We started 2019 with the Upper Key Stage 2 pantomime: Panto Pandemonium! After practising really hard leading up to Christmas, it was time to put in on the stage and perform it to our families and friends. It went so well!! Everyone who came to watch it thought it was brilliant. All the singing and acting was high quality. It was great performing to an audience as they actually laughed at our jokes and responded to things we said. It was just like a panto in a theatre!

We’ve also been working really hard in English. Macbeth has been this terms text. Even though it’s incredibly dark and gruesome, we thought it was enjoyable to read. We have even started to read other William Shakespeare adaptations. We were able to make links between the story and Beowulf that we read in autumn term. We are now planning to write an argumentative piece on who we thought was the greatest villain in the story. Who do you think: Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, the witches or even Conn?

During the first half of spring term, year 6 have been visited by local organisations we have links with. Firstly, Nottingham Trent University visited us to talk about university life and how we should aspire to be the best we can. We got the opportunity to interview a student and we thought about what we wanted to do when we are older. We found out that some jobs require you to go to uni and some don’t. We also found out what it would be like to be a university student, including living on campus and the clubs and societies you can join.

P.S.C.O Mattison also visited us and discussed how to use social media sensibly. We learnt that if it is use correctly it is a wonderful thing but used in the wrong way (sending unkind, abusive or threatening messages), we could get into trouble as we are all over the age of 10. At the end of the session we got the opportunity to ask P.C.S.O Mattison about her job. We asked a lot of questions!

In P.E we have been improving our gymnastics skills. Miss Robinson has been really impressed by our motivation and enthusiasm. We have also been learning how to play handball – it may be our new favourite sport!

In the next few weeks we are visiting The National Justice Museum to support out topic work on Crime and Punishment. We look forward to telling you about our trip and showing you our photos in our next update.
