Welcome back to Primary 6!
We trust you had a wonderful Easter and are looking forward to all of the exciting things we have planned for this term! This term we will be learning about Early Explorers as part of our World Around Us topic.
Please enjoy looking through the photos below, these will hopefully give you a taste of life in Primary 6 at Mossley Primary School.
Meet your Primary 6 teachers!

On Thursday 11th May, P6 Room 21 had a 3D Shape Blitz Morning! During the morning we completed five different activities all to do with 3D shapes. We used a Key Stage 2 Maths App on the school iPads to reinforce our knowledge of the properties of 3D shapes, we made posters on the nets and properties of 3D shapes, we made a Venn Diagram to compare and classify 3D shapes and we labelled the properties of 3D shapes.
We hope you enjoy looking at the photos of what was a truly exciting morning of maths!!
As part of our Area and Perimeter topic, Primary 6 carried out a maths investigation. Their task was to design enclosures for Farmer Ted's animals that had recently escaped. Farmer Ted was very particular about what he wanted for his farm and so the children had to experiment with perimeter to create the best enclosures for the animals.
We hope you enjoy looking at some of our fabulous creations!!
On Wednesday 1st March, P6 completed this term's STEM project entitled, 'Viking Towers.' The task required the children to use a range of materials to design and build a Viking Tower. The tower was to have a rotating turret upon which a monk could stand and look out for approaching Vikings. The turret was to operate remotely and should be able to make a 360 degree turn.
The children had to first discuss ideas for how to best make use of the materials available to them and then had to work together to build their Viking tower. The photos above show some of the fantastic efforts that were made by the children.
On Friday 3rd February, we hosted an 'Inside Out Day' in aid of Stand by Me, a charity that operates in Ethiopia and other countries across the world with a focus of ensuring that all children have access to safe, clean water.
We hope you enjoy looking at some of the outfits chosen by our children and we would like to thank all the children and parents for supporting such a worthy cause.
On Friday 27th January, Primary 6 had a Viking Day. Since the beginning of January, we have been learning about Vikings in World Around Us and so took this opportunity to have a Viking themed day.
In the morning, the children had a Viking fashion show in their classes, showing off their costumes and home made shields and weapons. The children also took part in a Rune Art lesson led by Mr. Moreland, a Viking clay lesson led by Mr. Uprichard and got the opportunity to delve deeper in the Vikings' history in Miss. Stewart's 'Viking Museum.'
We would like to thank all children and parents for the hard work they put into preparing for today and hope you enjoy looking at the photos of what was a truly wonderful day.
Despite an inauspicious start our trip has been excellent so far. The hostel is lovely and full of character. The food has been good and we've all had enough to eat. Once we had dinner we headed to Potsdamerplatz and enjoyed the Christmas market for an hour or two. No spoilers about the gifts you will receive! This morning we headed to our partner school in Bad Saarow. We were made extremely welcome and received a tour of the school before joining in some Christmas songs and playing games. We used some of the German we have been learning and even watched a Christmas play.
After lunch we did a treasure hunt around the beautiful spa town of Bad Saarow, spotting the local sites and walking out to one of the many lakes in the area. This evening we are relaxing in the hostel, filling in our diaries and playing some pool. We may even get some sleep!
Day 3 Woodhall Room 19
The weather didn't dampen our spirits today, it just made our activities even more fun! This morning everyone challenged themselves with high ropes activities and perfected their technique during archery sessions. Canoeing in the wind and rain wasn't easy but through good teamwork, encouragement and hard work we managed to get to the end of the canal and back! Some crazy children even jumped into the River Bann (with permission). Tonight we are continuing to build friendships through games. All the children have been so well behaved, well mannered, given every activity their all and shown great enthusiasm - they are each a credit to you and have been a pleasure to have on this residential. See you all at 3pm tomorrow :)
WOODHALL 2016 Primary 6 Room 19
We all had another exciting day on our residential! We explored White Park Bay and found many interesting items! We were all brave and had a go at caving, learned how to make a fire and learned about rock formation at Ballintoy Harbour! Tonight we're enjoying a 'movie and munch' night'. Everyone is very sleepy and are looking forward to an early night, ready for canoeing on the River Bann tomorrow followed by High Rope activities. All are well, safe and having a ball!
P6 Room 19 - Woodhall!!!!!
What a fantastic first day!!! All the children had a ball and thoroughly enjoyed all the activities... They are now all exhausted and fast asleep! We are looking forward to our beach walk tomorrow. Look out for photos tomorrow!
