In a highly contested competition, Emma won the Christmas card design for MP Damien Moore, with Umaiza a worthy runner up. The card has been made and delivered to the Prime Minister and Our new King Charles! Well done!

A Year 6 newsletter was sent home this week, if you did not receive it, there is a copy here.

Welcome to Year 6.

Together we flourish and grow.

 

The Year 6 team, Ms Fraser, Mrs Kilpatrick, Ms Riley and Mr Tilley, are very excited for the new team! 

 

PE, this term, is on Thursday (gymnastics), please bring the designated school PE kit and take home at half term.  Sweatshirts and tracksuit bottoms are recommended as the weather becomes cooler, pumps for indoor PE and trainers for outdoor.  Tights are not to be worn and remember to tie hair back and remove earrings. 

 

Homework

Each pupil has a Reading Plus account, this programme is very effective in improving reading speed, stamina and understanding.  This should be accessed for at least four twenty minute sessions per week to supplement usage in school.  Please contact your class teacher if a password reminder is required. 

MyMaths is an excellent on-line resource.  Each mathematics concept has an age appropriate lesson to support learning.  Homework will be set each week, using MyMaths, which will further develop work carried out in class that week. 

 

Pupils will also have a topic homework book.  This will include a series of tasks to choose from each week or fortnight.  These will be practical or craft tasks. 

 

The children also have access to TTRock stars for fun times table work.

 

For those pupils unable to access the online programmes or who would like some additional guidance, there will be a drop-in on-line learning session during Tuesday lunchtime. 

 

Reading books are changed each week.  Please bring the book back on Fridays and choose a new book on Monday.  Don't forget to record the reading in the reading record. It is recommended that pupils read and talk about their books daily. 

Should your child have an extended absence, please access the following lesson links to maintain learning habits.  Also use the MyMaths lessons and read+ programme. 

 

Andrew Bedwell visited school with the amazing vessel in which he will be sailing from Newfoundland to the west coast of Ireland - 1900miles. Pupils will be following his record breaking journey via photos and videos on Instagram.

6FK visited the Atkinson to take part in a history workshop about Southport.

Wednesday saw 6CF at the Atkinson for the Victorian Southport show - superb!

Maths experts quizzing colleagues about adding and subtracting mixed numbers.

Thank you very much to Hettie from SASWT for the workshops on personal responsibility. Exciting and thought-provoking, the pupils really engaged with the tasks.

Representatives from Year 6 attended the Eco Centre, along with schools from all over Sefton, to take part in a junior COP27 to discuss climate change, its effects and implications for the future. The conference was carried out just like the adult conference taking place in Egypt at the moment. Pupils delivered presentations on behalf their chosen countries (Linaker represented Bangladesh and Australia) and talked about the problems facing their country currently. A selection of speakers also delivered and pledges were made. An extremely productive day, well done Linaker pupils on their superb behaviour and participation.

Amazing Amazon homework.

A fantastic trip to the Eco Centre to take part in Amazon Rainforest workshops. The new immersive room is amazing!

Superb RE work on anti-racism, justice and equality.

These certainly were not 'Hard Times' and with 'Great Expectations', Charles Dickens travelled through time to share readings from 'A Christmas Carol'.

Spring Term 1

Please complete the homework tasks for this half term's topics.

Summer Term

Following the end of Key Stage assessments, pupils are carrying out a range of problem solving activities or projects. 

PE will be on Tuesdays and children will need their trainers for athletics.

 

Year 6 have worked on a maths enterprise project to create and budget for a theme park. This has been an exciting project and the children have designed amazing rides. To develop this further, Tinkercad (a 3d modelling app) has enabled pupils to create their own rides.

To enhance science learning, pupils visited the maritime Museum in Liverpool to take part in a workshop on the Titanic and explore how the 'unsinkable' ship experienced such a tragedy.

After learning about how to create felt from fleece, the children had a fantastic afternoon wet felting an underwater scene using a range of blue shades. Next, they started a smaller piece, using vivid colours, to make a fish. This will be added to the blue background.

An exciting teamwork challenge! Using 20 spaghetti pieces, one marshmallow (to go on the top), 50cm of string and 2 strips of tape, create the highest free standing structure. Amazingly, one structure succeeded at 53cm!

Summer 1 science organiser.

Floating and sinking were investigated in the outdoor space. Pupils created a boat out of tin foil, looking for features that would enable the point to float when filled with weights.

Aspiration, Inspiration, Motivation, Aim High
