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 - erik the Viking by terry jones

 

This term we have been reading the mythological adventures of Erik the Viking and his comrades as they travel to find where the sun goes at night. From a Talking Valley, we have been busy magpieing words to build up to our independent write.

Today in English we re-enacted a scene from the traditional version of Beowulf. Each group had a different scene to represent and challenging text to read.

Soundscaping Beowulf's arrival to Heorot

Today, we worked in small groups to create the sounds of a scene from the text. We had to think about how to layer the sounds to create the best overall effect and what would sound best for the listener who doesn't have an image to guide them.

Topic - vikings

Why was Alfred the Great so 'great'? Were the Vikings just brutes or settlers coming to a new land? These are some of the questions we have been examining this half term as we learn about the Vikings' struggle for power with the Anglo-Saxons and predict why they came to England. The children have been using emotive and figurative language to write recounts and diary entries as a ruthless Viking solider or a member of the great king's army.

 

Play in a day will be October 17th (all day) where the children will get to participate in a Viking re-enactment.
