Year 6

Our latest Curriculum Leaflets will keep you informed about the Cornerstones projects being studied, including the learning activities that are planned and important day to day information. They will also give information about how you can help your child at home (linked with the taught curriculum) and weekly schedules for activities such as P.E. and home learning.

Evacuated to Murton Park

On Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th of September, Year 6 children from Copley Junior School were evacuated from Doncaster to Murton Park.  On arrival, they were met by an evacuation officer who escorted them to the village hall. During their visit, children experienced what life was like for children during World War 11. Activities included: washing and ironing clothes; making farmhouse crunch and butter; blast taping windows; carpet making; air raid drills and most children’s favourite - extinguishing a small incendiary bomb!

Times Tables Rock Star Launch 2018-2019

Children and staff looked rocktastic for the launch of our Times Tables Rock Star learning for 2018-2019. Miss Mellor explained how important learning times tables is and that, with lots of practice, children need to aim for instant recall of all times tables and division facts. Miss Mellor explained how the times tables rock stars programme works. To begin with, if you need more than 10 seconds to answer questions correctly, you are a rock 'wannabe'. You will climb up the ladder of rock stardom as you get quicker at answering questions accurately - so 6 seconds or less you will become a 'breakthrough artist' and at 4 seconds or less you will become a 'headliner'. Your aim is to become a 'rock star' - you will achieve this when you can answer times tables questions correctly in 3 seconds or less. If your recall becomes even quicker you can become a 'rock hero' and, finally, a 'rock god'!

Our launch event finished with a teacher challenge - five brave (and very competitive) teachers tackled 100 instant recall questions against the clock. Miss Havercroft was victorious with a time of 1 minute 24 seconds!

Children enjoyed creating silhoutte paintings of London in the Blitz.

As part of our work on 'A Child's War' children worked collaboratively to research and present information about an aspect of World War II e.g. evacuation, the Blitz, rationing etc. Here are some of our posters below:

In our maths work, Year 6 used their investigative maths skills to take on the challenge of solving a World War 2 Transposition Cipher.
