Welcome to Year 6!
We have had a fantastic start to this short Spring term. In English, we have been improving our writing skills using the story of 'Francis' which children have greatly enjoyed. We loved having parents join us to complete an Art piece inspired by chosen artists through the medium of paint. In science, we have been creating our own circuits and looking at how to measure and account for different variables. We are looking forward to the next part of Spring term. Thank you to all the parents who attended the meeting regarding the Year 6 Residential - Please find the PowerPoint as a link at the bottom of our class page.
Reach for the Stars
As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, Year 6 have been exercising hard as part of a 'Stepathon' fundraiser. Children have been sponsored to complete as many steps they can. We laid the foundations for the rest of Key Stage 2 and completed an astronomical number of steps. Will we, as a school, reach the equivalent step count to get us to outer-space?
Parent Showcase - Art Gallery
Thank you to all parents who recently attended our Parent Showcase. Children and parents worked together to create some beautiful pieces inspired by artists. They used paint as an art medium and designed their pieces to be emotive and deliver a powerful message.
We are all Rockstars at Red Hill.
Children have been working extremely hard on their timestables. We love an excuse to dress up and practice our skills. Our Times Table Rockstar day was the perfect chance for this.
We used torches to identify how light travels by conducting a scientific experiment to observe and analyse the direction of light. We found that light travels in straight lines and creates shadows behind the objects of which it cannot travel through.
