Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 6 Page
Here, you will find exactly what is happening in Year 6.
Each morning at 8.30am, the door will be open for all year 6 pupils to enjoy a book and a bagel. Pupils will have the opportunity to access a variety of morning activities including Reading Plus and Edshed .
The site code for Reading Plus is : rppalli
If you have forgotten your passwords, please see a member of the Y6 team and they will share them with you. These informative games can be played at home. Why not create a hive game on Edshed and compete against your friends? Again, if you’re unsure how to do this, ask a member of staff and they will talk you through the process.
Spellings, which are linked to Edshed, are given out every Monday which will give you the week to practise. Our Year 6 spelling test will be every Friday morning, before Praise Assembly.
The Year ahead…
Autumn 1 World War II
Travel back in time to No Man’s Land and find out about the atrocities of war. Find out what the characters in Private Peaceful had to endure and get those tissues ready as you’ll need them.
During Design Technology, you will also find out what meals were created using rations. People during the war had to be very creative with their culinary skills and you will also have the chance of baking carrot cookies.
Some pupils will be able to make poppies using recycled bottles which will be taken for the Remembrance Sunday Ceremony at Albert Park. The poems, written in English, will be attached to them for the people of Middlesbrough to enjoy.
Autumn 2 Frozen Earth
Discover the true story of Matthew Henson who had the opportunity to escape his terrible home life and run away for an adventure of a lifetime. Research artwork by Bob Patterson and Bart Hanna, who both incorporate polar bears into their designs. Explore the different colours and techniques that are used before creating your favourite piece with clay.
This is always a hectic half term as pupils will have the opportunity to be involved with performing in a Christmas Show as well as have a little holiday to Carlton. This action-packed residential is the perfect treat for pupils and staff. Try a bit of archery, jump from the Leap of Faith, play hide and seek in the dark and enjoy movie night with nibbles. Non-stop fun, mud and memories always happen at one of Pallister’s favourite places.
More details about this holiday will be emailed to you closer to the time.
Spring 1 Evolution
Find out what happened to Charles Darwin when he went on a journey of a lifetime and discovered lots of wonderful things. We’ll be able to read one of Mr Suthers’ favourite books, Darwin’s Dragons. During Design Technology, pupils will have an opportunity to make their very own HMS Beagle before competing against each other with whose boat will sail the furthest.
Spring 2 Staying Alive
Would you accept the heart belonging to a pig if yours was failing and it was the only chance you had to live? This is the dilemma we will be considering when we read Pig Heart Boy this term. We’ll also have the opportunity to write a persuasive speech on organ donation.
Summer 1 Art Attack
What happened when Michael’s dad lost his job? Travel around the world on a boat paid for with the redundancy money of course!
Find out about artists through time. What is the ‘earth’ without art? ‘eh!’
Summer 2 Mexico
Camp Green Lake sounds like a wonderful place although nothing is what it seems. A pair of sneakers have been stolen but who stole them? Children will enjoy reading ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar.
Travel through history and learn about the Ancient Maya, their society and culture. Explore their fascinating achievements and debate whether they were a successful civilisation.
PE is every Friday afternoon although depending on the weather, we could have extra sessions throughout the week.
The girls in Y6 will all have the opportunity to work with Rubies.
More information will be given prior to this enjoyable group starting.
Apollo Arts will be working with Year 6 throughout the year and will be introducing a new instrument, the ukulele as well as drums.
