The Hartlepool Monkey

On 25th September the Year 6 children visited  Stratford Circus Theatre to watch the tragic but legendary story of The Hartlepool Monkey. The show was not only humorous but was quite emotional as well. We were amazed by the special effects, especially the effects used to make the monkey come alive.

 

World War 2 – Flip Learning

 

Science Morning

As part of their science topic, the children in Year 6 were investigating how shadows are formed.

Residential trip to Fairplay House

Year 6 had the amazing opportunity to go on the annual residential trip to Fairplay House. The purpose of the trip was for us to get to know one another as a year group, to encourage us to work together in groups and teams.

We were lucky enough to be able to do a range of activities, such as: orienteering, caving, high ropes, G-swing, woodland games and canoeing. We showed the Scott Wilkie values in every activity that we did.

2016-17

British Tea Party

On Monday 3rd July, the children of Year 6 had the fantastic opportunity to participate in a traditional British tea party. They sampled different traditional British delicacies such as cheese and onion quiche, cucumber sandwiches, scones with jam and swiss rolls.

Go Run For Fun

On Thursday 29th June, 60 pupils from across Scott Wilkie set off to the Olympic Park to Go Run For Fun. We took part in a warm up with around 2 000 other children, led by some special guests such as Colin Jackson.

Teamwork and perseverance were the key words of the day having to complete our 2km course. And our teachers had to push themselves too!

We all made it around the course and back safely. A great success! Just time for lunch in the Olympic Park and then back to school to get back to our lessons.

Mayan Culture

The children of Year 6 took part in a workshop where they learnt all about the Mayan culture. They even had the opportunity to dress up in costumes to experience what is was like to live in the times of the Mayans.

On Monday 26th June, Year 6 enjoyed a well-deserved day out to Chessington World of Adventures.

We visited the Sea Life centre to check out the sharks, sting rays and giant lobsters!

Then we started on the rides. Everyone got a good soaking on the Monkey Swingers!

We faced our fears on rides such as Kobra, Vampire and Dragon Falls.

A great day all round for Year 6 before we set off to our next adventure… secondary school!

D&T

As part of their D&T topic, Year 6 have been designing and making their own pencil cases. They  first had to learn how to thread a needle, double knot it and also had to practice three different types of stitches: running stitch, blanket stitch and applique stitch before they  could make their pencil case.

Citizenship Week

As a follow up to Citizenship Week, where the children in Year 6 learnt how Democracy works, Year 6 had the fantastic opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament. They were taken round on a tour of the House of Lords and the Palace of Westminster, following the trail the Queen would take when she opens Parliament in May. They also took part in a workshop, where they learnt about the process of making Laws.

   
   

Year 6 are currently studying Macbeth by William Shakespeare. To start off our topic we had a wonderful and exciting drama workshop with Anthony Glenn. As you can see we had lots of fun dramatizing the story. We will add some of our stories as soon as we have written them.


September 2016

On the 20th September ,as part of their Battle of Britain topic, year 6 visited the RAF Museum in Hendon. They had a fantastic day investigating the museum and taking part in a workshop about being an evacuee. We were so well behaved that the guide let us try on different RAF uniforms as you can see even Mr Thompson looked dashing.
