During Anti-Bullying Week we worked in groups to direct, film and edit our own iMovie clips to raise awareness of making the right choices and the importance of always taking a stand against bullying. Our theme 'Change Starts With Us' made us think about the power of our choices and links brilliantly with two of our school values: We Support and Care for Each Other and Together We Are a Team.

Handball in PE
We loved Handball in PE and practised different types of passing. Our first match was a big success and we used our knowledge of other sports like Football, Netball and Basketball to help us with things like teamwork and spatial awareness.
What a super start to our science topic about the circulatory system! Today we dissected hearts and tried to find structures such as ventricles, atria and significant arteries. We loved being able to use scalpels to cut through the tissues and it was great fun to use a practical, hands-on approach to labelling the heart!
Halloween and Bonfire Night Fire Safety
Thank you to the firefighters of Blue Watch from Sale Fire Station who came to visit us yesterday morning. They gave us some really important messages about keeping ourselves safe around fire and fireworks, which is particularly relevant for events happening over the next couple of weeks. We learnt about the dangers of fireworks and bonfires and also had the chance to have a look around the fire engine.
Word of the Day
Every day in Year 6 we look at the Vocabulary Ninja Word of the Day. We have been expanding our vocabulary for our writing but also to aid our understanding in reading. As we have started a new topic in English, we took the opportunity to create our own Word of the Day cards for new and challenging vocabulary we identified in our WAGOLL.
History TASC Projects
To showcase our learning about Monarch Since 1066, we have worked in groups to create Morpho videos. Have a look at the iMovie clips we have created.

We love looking at the word of the day. So, for our new piece of historical writing, we found specialist vocabulary from the WAGOLL and made or own!
As well as challenging ourselves academically, we are motivated to be as fit and active as we can. We love our Daily Mile- especially on a super fresh, autumn morning!
Together we are a team! To ensure we all master our maths objectives, today we've worked in a small team to fully get to grips with very tricky long multiplications!
Peer Editing & Editing Stations
In our English today, we have been editing our ghost stories. We worked in pairs from across the year group, sharing our stories and making improvements. Moving around the room, we visited a number of focused editing stations with instructions for targeted editing work. We have found it’s good to be more focused in our editing!
Using the springboard
Gymnastics - balances for our routines
Gymnastics - Hold your balance - Mannequin Challenge!
Using Logical Reasoning
Some great strategies to work logically to solve this dicey maths problem!
During today's guided reading session, we revised our skills of Summarising. Thinking of a hashtag is a great way to help us summarise! Have a look at our hashtags for chapter 6!
We are loving learning about our monarchs since 1066! We discussed in great depth some of the clauses in Magna Carta which still impact on us today and whether or not we would keep them. Next we created our own clauses and debated the benefits of adding them to our laws today. We have learned what made King John give in to the people and sign the document and how this impacts on us 800 years later!
Place Value Problems
Problem Solving: What do you need?
Today in Maths, we worked in groups across the year group to solve a challenging problem involving properties of numbers. We were given eight clues to find a missing number and then we had to decide which of the clues were necessary and which weren’t.
Maths in Mrs Baxter's and Mrs Taylor's group has been very challenging today! The children have solved a complex place value puzzle which has required advanced problem solving skills and team work!
Great fun in Gymnastics!
To refocus on our school values at the beginning of a new year, we have been working with a variety of materials to create a piece of art. Our artwork will portray one of our school values using imagery, colour and collage!
Which British Monarchs have had an impact on our lives today?
Today we introduced our new topic for this half-term. We have been collecting our initial thoughts about our ‘big question’. Working in groups, we discussed key vocabulary and issues raised. Following this, we gathered our thoughts on what we think we currently know, what we need to find out and how we will find the information we need to answer this question!
How will we demonstrate the Springfield Values?
To refresh ourselves with the school values we discussed the values praise certificates which we had received last year. We chose a value we have not yet been praised for and wrote ourselves a postcard, including some of the behaviours we could demonstrate in order to earn a new praise certificate. We then shared them with others in the class and listened to their ideas. Lots of praise certificates and values tokens are on the way in Y6 Liberty!
At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
