Welcome to the Year 6 page!

 

We are looking forward to an exciting year, full of enthusiasm, ambition and determination as we come to the end of our journey at St Peter's. In Year 6 we strive to be role models, as we set high expectations in all we do. Recently we have been focussing on various quotes of determination, resilience and perseverance - vocabulary which we use frequently in our learning.

English - The wolves of currumpaw by william grill

 

This term we are reading a non-fiction picture book about the development of North America. Set in the valley of 1800's New Mexico, the landscape changed as the European settlers came to the great valley. With the forest torn down to build houses and railways, the animals were forced into hiding (starving from lack of food chain available for survival). What will happen to the wolves? Will the towns people continue hunting the animals for their pelts? How will this link to our study of settlement in American history?

Topic - Study of america through 1850's to 1880's

This term we are learning about the Gold Rush (1850s), Railroads (1860s) and the Wild West (1880s). To begin our topic we began with our Gold Rush investigation: Who stole the chocolate coins? Year 6 children spent the day researching the time period, gathering evidence from the teaching staff and interviewing some suspicious staff (who clearly love chocolate). Telegrams arrived throughout the day giving us clues and information. Luckily we were able to find the culprit and the hidden golden coins :)

PDL 

In PDL this term we have been working on our goals and the world of work. We have been focusing primary on the UNICEF rights of the child articles:

Article 2 (equality), Article 4 (government and responsibilities), Article 6 (right to life), Article 12 (opinions), Article 32 (protections), Article 36 (protection from harmful activities), Article 37 (legal punishments), Article 38 (military service).

 

We have been researching our dream jobs to determine the education requirements, job responsibilities and salaries (which were surprising!) Finally we learned how to write a CV for our dream job, including all our learning this unit.
