The children have read the story of Rose Blanche and wrote poems related to it.
We enjoyed choosing exciting vocabulary to incorporate in our writing and performed them to our peers.



Anti-Bullying Week

This year the theme is ‘One Kind Word.’ In Year 6 we have been spreading kindness by sharing kindness cards, working together to make friendship bracelets and reflecting on how kindness makes us all feel. 


Kindness is a gift everyone can give. 


“Angel has really helped me this week.  She really deserved recognition for the kindness she has shown.” said Jayden. 

Black History Month

As part of Black History Month, we have been learning about Walter Tull, who is widely considered the first African-Caribbean mixed heritage man to be commissioned as an infantry officer in the British Army.  We were captivated by his story and were proud to put our work together to produce a class exploding book.

World War 

During the first world war, soldiers used periscopes to see over the top of the trenches.  As part of design technology year 6 followed instructions to make their very own periscope.
This week in maths we have been comparing and ordering fractions.  Angel, Molly and Harley worked hard and were really proud that their hard work paid off.
Emma and Samiha enjoyed reading the story of Rose Blanche.  Together they worked at home to produce a wonderful poem based on the story.
Insight Day
Year 6 spent an exciting day at Southmoor, exploring their identity.  They took part in a range of lessons including: Sociology, Psychology, Biology and Literacy.
"I love exploring the different parts of the brain." Angel

Christ-maths challenge

Here at Valley Road, we have been getting into the Christmas spirit by completing Christmas maths challenges. Every year group was provided with a different festive favourite and asked to make their very own chocolate-based calculations. I’m sure you will agree that maths can be fun, especially when sweets are involved.



We enjoyed making our own mathematical problems using a traditional tin of Quality Streets. We tried hard to be creative with our maths and made problems involving fractions, perimeter, ratio and algebra. Although we enjoyed completing our challenge we all agreed that the best part was eating the chocolate, once we had successfully solves each other’s calculation. Can you solve our problems?
