Week Commencing 20th September 2021

This half term, our science topic is the circulatory system.


So far we have found out what the circulatory system consists of and why it is so important for our bodies to function. We have also examined the heart more closely, looking at its different features and purpose.


Most recently, and excitingly, we have been looking at blooooood! This week, we discovered that, although blood appears to simply be a red liquid, it is so much more complex than that! The blood actually has four key components.


We used the resources above to represent these components and made some of our own blood. We learnt so much - as you can see in this beautifully presented work!


Remember to ask the year 6 pupils what these four components are as well as their unique roles!

Week Commencing 13th September 2021

6KR are thoroughly enjoying their first guided reading book of year 6! We are reading Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo, and without giving away too many spoilers, we have definitely discovered some of the twists and turns already! As you can see, we have also redesigned the front cover and answered some challenging comprehension questions based on the storyline. 


The adults in year 6 look forward to hearing more about the books the children are reading at home (and updating on GoRead). Remember to ask us about what we are reading! This is also displayed on the Guided Reading wall. 


Happy reading!

Week Commencing 6th September 2021

6KR have had a great start to their final academic year at Quarry Hill Academy!


They have demonstrated outstanding behaviour both in class and on the playground, proving themselves to be good role models for the rest of the school.


As you can see above, they have met the high handwriting and presentation expectations in addition to producing interesting content using a range of sentence types.


We are all #soproud!


Keep it up Year 6!
