'Learning together for a better tomorrow'

Y6S

Things to think about!

Welcome to Miss Sleator’s year 6 class.

 

Some important information to remember:

What to bring:

·         We go swimming on a Monday

·         Instruments are needed every Thursday

P.E will take place on Friday this term

 

 

Written Homework:

This year there will be two written homeworks per week.  These will normally be on Monday and Tuesday and consist of a Numeracy and a Literacy task.  However, on occasions these days may differ but children will be notified of this in class.

 

​Reading:

​Children should be reading their class novel and AR reading book each evening and over the weekend if possible.

 

Dinner money:

Dinner money is £2.55 per day and £12.75 for the week.

 

Music;

​Children can access 'Charanga' website by using an email address.  It is essential that children log on each week and practice their chosen instrument, as their progress is monitored on a weekly basis.  At the end of the year, children will participate in a Year 6 concert and parents will be invited to come along and see how their child has progressed throughout the year.

 

Many Thanks, L.Sleator

As we approach the end of of our World Around Us 'Viking' theme, we have been reflecting on what we have learnt this term. Our next WAU topic will be 'Volcanoes'.

On Wednesday 23rd November Miss Sleator and Miss Loudan's class visited Armagh Museum.  Here are our photos from our trip :)

We explored the features of a Volcano to create similies

Millington Y6S Talent show. On the last day of term one we had a talent competition!!!

We used Minecraft to replicate the 3 main types of volcanoes : Cinder cone, Composite and Shield Volcanoes. This was a fun way of learning and we all enjoyed carrying out this task!

We used QR codes to explore the 10 most active volcanoes in the World.

Clustering Activity: In Numeracy we played a practical game which involved having to find a link between facts by converting measurements.

Young Enterprise- keep a look out for the posters and drink cartons we are currently creating (these will be uploaded once they have been finished)

Volcano Erruptions. We carried out 4 experiments in class, investigating how certain ingredients react and cause a chemical reaction which is irreversable.

Our class award winners for the month of December are: Justas, Nicola, Lana and Molly. Well done for working so hard girls and boys :)

AR readers in Y6S

We had lots of fun at Dungannon STEM centre using science, tecyhnology, engineering and maths. We carried out 3 rotating practical activties, linked to our new WAU topic of WW1, throughout the day.

Testing Acids and Alkalis. We tested everyday substances. Our results produced a beautiful array of colours which we sorted to create a PH scale

Problem solving with Izak9. We worked in ability groups, exploring patterns. We had to solve questions based on the multiples of 3.

Active Learning Task :We created our own Human Decision Trees.

Rugby Practice with our coach Bill :).

Congratulations to the year 6 boys who came 4th place in the Portadown Credit Union competition held in Seagoe Parish Centre. The boys were competing against 9 other schools. We are extremely proud of them for representing their school.

The Handshake Challenge

 

Today, we did an Active challenge: we worked in a group to find out how many handshakes there would be if two people, then three people....met.  We had six to seven people in a group.  Here's what we did:

 

1) As a group we discussed our strategy and worked it out.

2) We shared our strategy with the rest of the class and explained our reasoning. Miss Sleator was pleased to see all the different strategies that we used. We learnt a lot from sharing each groups methods; some strategies were quicker and easier than others.

3) We analysed the results and found a pattern.

 

Have a look at our task images below :)
