Year 6


Homework 16.9.16

Congratulations on the first full week back at school. It’s been exhausting but packed full of fantastic learning.

This week, we would like you to complete the following chapters in your punctuation and arithmetic booster books. In addition to this, we would like you to learn the next ten spellings in your reading records from available to community. Remember we expect a sentence for each word and the definition if you are not sure what a word means. It is essential that you understand the meaning of all spelling words to ensure you use them confidently and accurately in your work.

Have a lovely weekend year six!

Welcome Year 6 2016-2017

We’ve had a fantastic start to the new school year in Y6. Having conquered the long walk to the top of the school, we were greeted by smiling faces on Tuesday morning.

So far, we have begun our class book The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. The gripping story about Bruno and his family has sparked our interest and we are now keen to find out what he has spotted outside his window.

Additionally, we have refreshed our knowledge of the four operations in Maths and have been introduced to our new topic WW2. Can you explain to friends or family why the war broke out?

This week we expect you to complete the first chapters of your Arithmetic and Punctuation SATs guides and learn the first ten spellings in the year 5&6 spelling list found in your reading records. As always, we expect this to be completed by Tuesday.

Congratulations on a fantastic first week back! We can already tell that it is going to be a wonderful year full of hard work.

27.04.2016 Youth Citizens

On Wednesday the students of year 6 travelled to Linford Christie Stadium to participate in the TfL Youth Citizens initiative.

The children had the opportunity to work with Police Officers, Fire Fighters and members of TfL to learn skills that will equip them in being safe in their home and in public.

Some activities the students worked on were:

  • Learning etiquette of tube and bus travel
  • Learning how to ride a bike safely
  • Importance of having a working fire alarm
  • Stranger danger
  • Importance of wearing a seat bely

The students were all very inquisitive and not only asked lots of questions but were also eager to share their knowledge. They were fantastic role models for our school and we are sure they will put what they learnt into practise in their everyday lives

9.3.16 Fulham Readers’ Cup

Fulham Readers’ Cup,

By Khadijah.

On the 9th of March, nine girls from year 6 (Azza, Asra, Fatimah, Kimberly, Daisy-May, Nadia, Rayan, Meriam and Khadijah,) went to Thomas’ School in Fulham to take part in an event called The Fulham Readers’ Cup. We had a mentor called Katie who was very encouraging; she helped us study the books that we were going to answer questions to.

We went to Thomas’ School by bus, when we arrived we were greeted by a very kind lady from the Thomas’ School foundation who gave us some snacks in handy bags. After eating (and waiting for everyone to arrive), we went into a room to start the competition.

When we went in the room, the author of The Dream Snatcher (Abi Elphinstone whose book was the subject in one of the rounds) explained that to become an author all you need is a curious mind.

The first round of the competition was ‘The Boy in the Tower,’ by Polly Ho-Yen. Asra, Meriam and Rayan competed in this round. Since they were first, they were a little shy however towards the end they gained courage. The next round was ‘Fortunately the Milk,’ by Neil Gaiman. For this round, it was: Nadia, Daisy-May and Kimberley. They did amazingly for this round and Nadia made sure to press the buzzer. The final round was ‘The Dream Snatcher,’ by Abi Elphinstone. Khadijah, Azza and Fatimah played this round. The final round was a general knowledge round played by Daisy-May, Meriam and Fatimah.

After four amazing rounds, we had a total of 1200 points taking us to second place.. We had a wonderful time and had learned many things, for example: if you have a goal, try your best to achieve it. We are very proud of ourselves and earned a mini pencil case and a £10 Amazon gift card. We wish we could do it all over again!

Fulham Readers Cup

By Asra.

On the 9th of March nine girls (Azza,Asra,Kimberely,Khadijah Daisy-May,Fatimah,Nadia,Rayan and Meriam)from year six set off to Thomas ’school to take part in a reading competition. Helping us study, was a mentor named Katie, who was very encouraging;also supportive in many ways.

When we got there we were greeted by many welcoming smiles,after,we were taken into the room which the competition was being held in.We had four rounds including the books we were given by Katie: Boy In The Tower played, by Asra, Meriam and Rayan(first round),Fortunately the Milk, played by Kimberely,Nadia and Daisy-May(round two) ,Dream Snatcher,played by Khadijah,Azza and Fatimah (round three) and finally general knowledge played by Fatimah, Daisy-May and Meriam.

A remarkable part of the evening was when we met a humorous author; Abi Elphinstone who wrote the dream snatcher.She was very inspiring and claimed that all you need to right a story is a curious mind. She told us many stories about how she had put together a story. She also told us about how she suffered from dyslexia and thought differently from others.

After amazing rounds of answering questions and buzzing, they finally revealed the winning school, which was unfortunately Fulham Primary. Coming second, we were very proud ;Hotham came third and Langford came fourth. We learnt many things including that you can achieve anything if you put effort in it.

9.3.16 Wild Science Visit

This morning Year 6 were treated to a visit by some very special guests. The team at Wild Science came in to present a workshop to assist our learning and understanding with one of science units of evolution. After enthusiastically sharing all of our knowledge with the presenter we were introduced to some animals.

We firstly had the chance to meet a Madagascar Cockroach. These cockroaches have adapted to their environment and evolved the ability to make a hissing sound. This hissing sound scares away any predators as they think a snake is present. All of us touched the cockroach and some students were even brave enough to hold it!

We then met Milly the Skinny Pig. Milly is similar to a guinea pig but due to a genetic mutation it doesn’t have any hair and has big bulgy eyes. We all touched Milly’s soft skin and learnt that without humans care this species wouldn’t survive in the wild.

The last of our guests was meeting Annie the Corn-field snake. Over time this species has evolved its appearance to camouflage from predators in cornfields. We also learnt that Annie can open her mouth to three times its size to eat its favourite food (mice) in one big mouthful!

It was very interesting to hear about all these examples of animals adapting in the wild.

2.3.16 Science Open Morning

Year 6 had a fantastic Wednesday morning completing a range of scientific investigations all in conjunction with our school theme of ‘POTIONS’.

Students conducted a range of experiments both individually and in groups. Some of these included creating our very own lava lamps and also exploring all the properties of magnets. One of the most popular investigations proved to be creating self-inflating balloons. Students discovered that by mixing vinegar and baking soda in a bottle, enough energy could be created to inflate an actual balloon. Lots of students linked it to being similar to shaking up a bottle of fizzy drink.

Students were very inquisitive, asked lots of questions and loved the opportunity to share their learning with all of our visitors.

26.02.16 Year 6 Trip to Fulham Cross

This week, Year 6 visited Fulham Cross girls’ school on Wednesday to see what life will be like in secondary school, the children participated in a range on activities and were credited with incredible listening skills and representing Sir John Lillie impressively.

Please remember year 6 of your SATs Buster homework and spellings this week. Did you remember Circumference, Diameter and Radius last week?

Well done for an incredible Poetry week, in year 6 we focussed on Personification and writing personification poems to describe a single object. We then studied the Highway Man: civil

Alfred Noyes (1880-1958)

The Highwayman

PART ONE

I

THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—
Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

II

He’d a French cocked-hat on his forehead, a bunch of lace at his chin,
A coat of the claret velvet, and breeches of brown doe-skin;
They fitted with never a wrinkle: his boots were up to the thigh!
And he rode with a jewelled twinkle,
His pistol butts a-twinkle,
His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jewelled sky.

We then wrote the next verse and practiced reading aloud our prose.

Year 6 also enjoyed writing Haiku, kennings and narrative poems.

Christmas Cards

Year 6 made Christmas cards as part of our D.T project, we will be selling them at our Carols around the Tree tonight and should sell plenty as they amazing!

Upper School Assembly

Mr C got all of Upper School exercising first thing this morning as we danced the Australian ‘Nut bush,’ what a great way to begin a Friday!

Remembrance Day Trip 11.11.15

Year six visited Silence in the Square at Trafalgar Square on Wednesday and participated in the two minute silence, the children were fantastic and enjoyed writing their thoughts down before and after the silence. We then took a walk down Whitehall and saw the Cenotaph where many wreaths had been laid. Other highlights was passing the Women in War memorial where children were able to name some of the different jobs women were involved with in the war and we saw where our Prime Minister lives at 10 Downing Street, not to mention the incredible Big Ben that towered over us as we approached Parliament Square. Lunch at St. James’ Park was also memorial as a Goose decided he wanted lunch with us…

Workshop with Tim Hall

Year 6 were treated to a workshop with a man called Tim Hall on Wednesday, Tim specialises in motivational workshops, aimed at telling our year 6 children that they can achieve anything if they practice, if they want to do something they can achieve it and above all listening skills! Year 6 performed a range of team building exercises and the favourite was building a tepee in the top hall. It was fantastic to see children working together to achieve a tricky task! Tim said our year 6 children were some of the best children he has ever worked with – what a compliment, Miss Benharch, Mr Treweeke and Miss Hillard were very impressed!

  7. UNEXPECTED CLOSURE OF FULHAM SCHOOL DUE TO GAS LEAK

    There has been breaking news that a school in Fulham has closed down for 2 days because there has been a gas leak. Sue Hayward and the office were texting the children’s parents to say that Sir John Lillie Primary will be closed because of a gas leak. The gas leak could have been very dangerous and the school closed on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th January 2013.
    Mrs Hayward suggested that the school should be closed. Miss Jackson said ‘’that’s unbelievable’’.

    Miss Folkard said to the children in year 6 that the children should have homework because Wednesday is a school day and if the children didn’t have school on Thursday they would have to go on the school blog and do the rest of it.

  8. UNEXPECTED CLOSURE OF FULHAM
    SCHOOL DUE TO GAS LEAK

    On Tuesday 22nd of January 2013, the school teachers at Sir John Lillie in Fulham found out that they had a gas leak.
    They were thinking it would get worse so they closed the school for 2 days. The 1st day is when they fixed it but the school rang the parents to tell them that there was no school on Thursday as well because they wanted to double check that the gas leak was fixed.
    When everyone found out there was school on Friday the children were so annoyed and the parents were so happy that there was school.
    Abdirahman from Year 5 said, “I’m so upset, why do I have to go back to school. I wish I had another day off!”

  9. UNECXPECTED CLOSEURE OF FULHAM SCHOOL DUE TO GAS LEAK
    On Wednesday the 23rd of January Sir John Lillie Primary School has been closed because of a serious gas leak. Miss Jackson said that’s unbelievable , the children parents were waiting for news until the gas leaking has stopped leaking.
    Eventually the parents received terrible new that the school needed one more day to get warmer .Sue said Im sorry but the school must be closed immediately to keep your children safe.
    Sadly 6f could not go to their trip on the 23rd of January and they had to residual their trip. Miss Folkcard said can this get any worse.
    6J and 6F were set to have homework due on Wednesday and Thursday and the rest of it is due on the blog. Joy said that’s so unfair the homework was set by Miss Jackson and Miss Folkcard.

And do you feel proud of your self when you do it?

    I am on the blog to inspire you and to make you feel better. If you have any comments please don’t feel shy please reply and express your feelings.

  31. Last Friday a group of children from year 6’s went to the Lyric theatre to see Cinderella. I think Buttons was the best character because he made us all laugh. My favorite bit was when 5 people walked onto the stage and started to do ‘Gangham Style’ (everybody laughed.) It was really fun and I enjoyed it.
    At the end of the play Buttons got his fairy wings and started to fly. When we got back to school we ate are lunches. The step mum and the ugly sisters were really funny, I wish I could go again. I also liked it when Buttons chanted ‘ that’s not your present’ when somebody tried to steal the shiny present. All the teachers who came enjoyed it as well.

  39. Miss Folkard I done my homework and brought in my homework book I just need to do the sentences where should I do them

  40. Farmers put fertilizers and pesticides on their crops so that their crops grow better. But these fertilizers and pesticides can be washed
    through the soil by rain, to end up in rivers. Fertilizers and pesticides are harmful because they cause algae to grow. The algae then destroy
    water plants. People are sometimes careless and throw rubbish such as bottles and crisp packets directly into rivers.

    Effects of pollution

    Pollution kills water plants and animals.

    Polluted water also carries diseases. When animals drink the water, they may get diseases which can kill them. People can even get these
    diseases by eating the infected animal. This happens a lot in poor countries in Africa where people get untreated water directly from the river.

    Rivers look unsightly when there is rubbish in them.

    Polluted rivers smell bad.

    Solutions

    Efforts are being made to clean dirty rivers. Water companies like Southern Water are spending a lot of money to clean up dirty rivers. There
    are fines for companies and people who deliberately throw rubbish into the river.

  41. hello Miss F!
    I hope you are doing well with the new 6F !
    I am really enjoying Lady Margaret and have made lots of new friends😀 I have a half day soon so I can come and visit🙂

    4) Did you know London is sinking at an estimated 12 inches (30cm) every 100 years?

  54. Mr Duffy here is my speech for the mediator jacket

    In Sir John Lillie school we have some children who are mediators.

    Who are mediators?
    Mediators are children who will be in the playground to help children. For example if a young child had lost their friends or had nobody to play with, the mediators would help them find someone to play with or help them find their friends. Another thing a mediator would do is if a child is having a fight they would try and help them resolve it and if it is to much for them the teacher would help solve it out.

        How long does our story have to be? I’ve already done 4 pages!!! plus i’m dgoing to do extra homework and it’s a suprise but i’m worhing at it now. Also I wanted to ask you something, do you know at the top of the page it says click here to write facts about Ancient Greece is it for 6D or us?

      • Wow Nermen you have been busy! I am looking forward to reading your story and seeing what extra homework you have done! Of course you can put your Ancient Greece information on there as well, I’m sure Mr Duffy would be pleased. See you in the morning.

        Miss F

      • I’m extra lucky because my reading book is about Greeks so I have a lot of facts to write about them. Also I was thinking could I do the extra homework i n my homework book.Plus Ms Bates said that i could practise what i learnt in maths today, so can i please do it in my homework book and i’m not sure if i’m going to finish it off today either because it was really long.
        – & also Ms Bates told us to go on the n-rich website, i went on it and it was really good. i’ll try finish off the rest of my extra homework today🙂
        HAPPY HALOWEEN

      • Hi Miss Folkard, how are you doing? This week has past so quickly!!!
        I hope that your having a great time. Also did you like my story? I hope so🙂

  57. What was life like for slaves?

    Life was hard and rough they had small sheds to sleep in and never
    bathed. Life for them was not healthy. they didn’t have good times like we have now days. They had to work all the time from early morning to night. They have to work for people. They get whipped most of the time. They had to walk around not healthy all day, they had to walk around dirty, and they don’t eat whenever they want. This is what like was like during slavery.

      • Miss Folkard, i lost the sheet of paper so i don’t know what the he spelling questions were and i forgot the spellings’ so could you please put it on the blog so i can bring it in on Monday because i will be cheking on the blog to see if you have replied yet.

      • I’m afraid I don’t have the questions with me at home Nermen. I can remember a couple of them though so here are the ones I can remember:

        When did slavery end in the uk?
        Where did slaves travel from?
        What was life like for slaves?
        How did slavery come to an end?

        You can use the brainpop website to help find the answers. If you want to have a go today that’s great but if not I can give you a spare sheet tomorrow. See you in the morning!

  58. My homework:

    about slavery

    1.Where did most of the slaves travel from to Britain?
    the west Indies

    2.How did the slave trade come to a end?
    A man called Abraham Lincoln stopped by writing a letter

    3.What was life like for the slaves?
    it was a very hard life for all the slaves

    4.what were slaves used for?
    they were kepted as farm labourers and if they didn’t work they could get killed.

    5.why were Africans used as slaves?
    because if they talk about native Americans they refer to Africans.

    6.When did the slave trade end in Britain?
    The Civil war (1861-1865)

    • Well done for finding out some information Cody. Try to find out a little more about what life was like for the slaves.
      Also, native Americans and Africans are not the same thing. Native Americans are the original people of America and Africans are from Africa.
      Have a good Sunday evening, see you in the morning!

    • I agree Anisa, though remember the title, ‘Should smoking be banned in public places?’ Think about the for and against. People who smoke do you think they want to be outside, should people have the choice to smoke or should people be told what to do?

      Remember we ARE NOT advocating smoking but think about the arguments for both sides. A balanced argument is showing you can be fair to both sides, regardless of your own opinions, that is until your final paragraph when you can then give your own opinions.

      Keep going. . . .

  79. Within an arm’s reach of the developing Olympic village in Stratford, another young athlete continues his daily routine designed to elevate him to the status of Olympian. JJ Jegede has established himself as one of the most exciting British athletes around, with the East London resident touted as a potential 2012 Olympian primed to reignite the long jump event.

    The necessity to overcome adversity is rooted within Jegede’s DNA; injury has already played a pivotal role in his brief spell as an athlete. The inception of his long-jump career can in fact be traced to an injury – after establishing himself as a footballer of immense potential at just 13, his dreams were extinguished by persistent problems with his knees
