Welcome to 6 Stars' Class Page!
We hope you enjoy reading about and looking through some of our pictures of things we’ve done. Do you have any ideas for this page, why not let your teacher know!
In science, we have been busy learning about light, Earth and space. As a result, we can explain why the planets in the solar system orbit the sun on an elliptical path and we know the difference between planets and moons. Also, we can explain that the Earth rotates at an angle, and that this causes different countries to experience night and day at different times.
Then we learnt that white light (the light the sun give us) is made up of several different types of light. This is called the spectrum. We can see the spectrum when a rainbow is formed. We looked into a spectroscope to see the light spectrum.
Did you know that there are some parts of the spectrum we can’t see?
Ultraviolet (UV) light is the part of light which is harmful to our eyes and our skin. We looked at ways that we can protect our eyes and skin by investigating different strengths (Factors) of sun cream and different lens for sunglasses.
Hillingdon Outdoor Adventure Centre
Year 6 had a great time at HOAC. We had lots of fun navigating on the low wires, in the caves and through the blindfolded trail. It was an excellent opportunity to work as a team, problem solve and to have fun.
6 Stars entered a drawing competition and our drawings have been put onto some hoardings on Accolade Road. We drew people in different jobs involved in Construction. We got lots of ideas about different careers for the future.
Taking inspiration from David Hockney’s photo montage, we decided to do our own. We took photos of the playground using the iPads. We had to think carefully about dividing our chosen panoramic view up into grids. When we printed our photos, we had to piece the photos back together.
Then we decided to completely let our creative juices flow. We took lots of selfies and printed them off. We cut the selfies and created a totally new collage.
Do you recognise anyone?
We have made a great start to the year. To begin with, we looked at our Rights Respecting Articles to write our class charter. The articles that we selected were Articles 12, 19, 24, 28 and 31.
Do you know what each article means?
Going for Goals
Following on from our class charter, we looked into setting goals for the year. We talked about how everyone dreams of becoming someone important or special. We took inspiration from famous people like Stephen Hawking, Lionel Messi, Steve Jobs, Flora Drummond, Malala Yousafzai, Billy Jean King, Marie Curie, John Barnes, Mo Farah and Paul Klee.
We set our own personal goals based on our dreams. Then we carefully planned the steps that we needed to take to achieve our goals and fulfill our dreams. We shared our message in a whole school assembly.
What are your dreams?
What are your goals?
What steps will you take to achieve them?
Dormers Wells High School Visit
As part of our transition to secondary schools next year, the whole Year 6 visited Dormers Wells High School. We had the pleasure of having a Maths lesson and a Science lesson. The science lab was impressive…and let’s not forget to mention the groovy safety goggles!
It was great to experience the life of a high school student for a morning.
We love to read!
Need we say more?
Books, books, glorious books. Everyone in 6 Stars are often caught with their noses in a book… Ms. Fisher included.
What are you reading at the moment?
Artist in Residence Workshops
Year 6 had the fantastic opportunity to work with our Artist in Residence, Steve. Our art has strong links to our history topic, the Ancient Greeks. Everyone had the chance to flex their art skills by working with clay to make coil pots and papier mache to make a large-scale sculpture of a pot.
Do you think the pot sculpture is taller than Mr. Barrett?
Heathrow Coding Challenge
Have you ever wondered how cargo is moved onto planes at Heathrow airport?
Year 6 were lucky enough to be visited by a team from Heathrow airport. They were given a 'coding challenge' which involved writing code to move cargo safely around the airport.
