Year 6 Learning Log

Have a look at what Palm and Willow have been up to...

Elf Day

The Grinch visited MJS and stole our Christmas joy. In order to save Christmas, the Elf Crew needed to solve a variety of problems and challenges. These included a trail, guess the Masked Christmas Joker, what's in the stocking?, writing a new Christmas song, making a Christmas craft and many others.


Luckily, the Elf Crew worked together and saved Christmas!

DT DAY - Building Bridges


In Year 6, we have been learning about structures and, in particular, bridges.  We looked at different designs of bridges, including: beam, arch and truss. We also considered the materials that are used and their properties.


We made beam bridges and experimented with different ways to make a stronger structure. For example, corrugated and laminated card.


We also made truss bridges out of spaghetti and then wood. We looked at how we could strengthen our structures.


Anti-bullying Week

The theme this year is "Make a Noise". We wore odd socks to celebrate our differences and talked about how we can "Make a Noise" if we are being bullied or see someone else being bullied.

Pudsey Ramble

Today we went on our whole-school Pudsey Ramble. It was wonderful to get out and enjoy the great outdoors whilst raising money for a worthy charity. Lots of mud and lots of fun!

We have created some interesting artwork using the Chiaroscuro technique as part of our Art unit.

Evacuee Day - WWII Launch Day


In history, we are learning about World War II and, in particular, key turning points of the conflict, such as the Battle of Britain.


To launch our studies, we experienced what life was like as an evacuee. We heard Neville Chamberlain announce that Britain was at war, packed our suitcases and bid a tearful farewell to our parents.


We travelled by train to the village of Melbourne (our village did host evacuees during the war) and watched an extract from Carrie's war to help to understand what it was like for evacuees to be away from in a strange place.  We also read The Lion and the Unicorn by Shirley Hughes.

Lea Green Visit 12/9/23


It may have been a wet day but that certainly did not dampen our spirits!

We used our map reading skills to navigate during a walk around Lea and Dethick; practised our bouldering skills in the cave, which included a 'Hanging Tough' competition; rode buggies around a circuit and used our teamwork and logical thinking skills to solve some problems. 


A fun day was had by all!
