Welcome to 6T!
A bucketful of determination, a scattering of mistakes, a shed load of happiness, heaps of teamwork, a scoop of enthusiasm and a pinch of nerves, mixed in with a lot of friendship and laughter, is what you will find in the Year 6T classroom as we enjoy our final year at Brighton Avenue Primary School.
We will work extremely hard and be faced with a range of challenges yet we will also party hard and enjoy the rewards! Throughout this year, we show our brilliant behaviour and amazing attitudes to ensure that we reach all of our goals and fulfil our potential.
From studying the historical discovery of the boy behind the golden mask and debating the story of the Trojan Horse to exploring the natural geographical features our world, we will be developing our questioning, reasoning and critical thinking skills which will help us on our journey into Year 7!
Please keep regularly visiting this page to keep up-to-date with the fun taking place in 6T!

w/c 29.11.21- Outdoor Learning- Muddy Monsters
We had Muddy Monsters this week and loved learning all about how to use the fire safely. We really enjoyed toasting marshmallows over the fire. The fire was well needed as we had lots of snow. We finished off the session by exploring in the forest school area. Take a look at some of the fun we got up to.
w/c 22.11.21- Science- Electrical Circuits
Over the last few weeks in Science, Year 6 have been building on their knowledge of building electrical circuits. We have been revisiting the scientific symbols and discussed why these are used over drawing pictures of the components. We then moved onto planning and carrying out our own experiment to test how we can change the brightness or loudness of a buzzer. We are then over the next few weeks going to make our own buzzer games using electrical circuits.
w/c 15.11.21- Children in Need!
Look at some of the fun we had on Children in Need 2021 dressed in our pjs!
w/c 8.11.21- Archery
Take a look at some of the amazing fun we had working on our archery skills! We loved having the chance to take part in archery after our first experiences at Robinwood!
w/c 1.11.21- Maths- Rounding
As part of our Maths this week, Year 6 have been revisiting our place value skills, where we have been focusing on our rounding skills. We enjoyed completing the rounding board game where we solved challenging rounding problems along the board game track! We got very competitive!
w/c 18.11.21- Robinwood!
Please visit this link to find out all about the fun Year 6 have had a Robinwood in our final week of Autumn 1!
w/c 11.10.21- Art- Printing
This week, we have been developing our printing skills using a range of printing tools. Have a look at some of the amazing prints and patterns we have created.
World mental health day
For WMHD, the Y6 and Y5/6 took themselves into their own happy place. They had to describe their happy place, the people they are with and say why they believe this is their place to go when they are feeling sad, worried, angry or lonely.
w/c 4.10.21- RE- Creation and Science
Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at the Christianity unit 'Creation and Science: conflicting or complementing?'. We have been looking at the Creation Story and discussing what Christians believe about how the world was created. After this, we discussed how we thought the world was created, whether we think it is the Creation Story, The Big Bang or aspects of both. We have also been looking at the responsibility that humans have for caring for the world. We created some poems based on how humans have mistreated.
w/c 29.9.21- Science- Blood
Following on from our amazing, yet gruesome, lesson where we made a model of blood using different representations like cheerios, red food colouring and salt, we then gathered all of our knowledge to make some very eye catching posters all about blood. The children's knowledge was outstanding and I think we could have some future doctors.
w/c 20.9.21- Science- Blood models
This week, we have been looking at the the different parts of the blood and the different functions of the these components. The children worked in groups to identify the different parts and functions before making their own models of blood. We even answered some challenging questions about what the blood would look like if a person if sick or has Sickle Cell disease. Year 6T, your ideas and knowledge were outstanding!
w/c 20.9.21- Green Heart Collective
Year 6 had an assembly this week where we learnt all about looking after the environment by reducing, reusing and recycling and buying preloved clothes. Take a look at some of the great posters we made to persuade families to buy preloved clothes.
w/c 13.9.21- Outdoor Learning- Big Allotment
We had great fun visiting the Big Allotment in Bensham, where we learnt about safety at an allotment before completing lots of tasks: weeding, cleaning plant pots, planting seeds and picking potatoes!
10.09.21- First Week in 6T!
It has been an amazing first week back in Year 6T! From getting to know each other to carrying out team building activities, we have had a great week 1 and can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings. We have even had the pleasures of having 'That History Bloke' into school to kickstart our History unit on 'What happened to the boy behind the golden mask?'. Take a look below at some of the fun we had learning about the Egyptians and the Egyptian pharaoh, Tutankhamun.
