Hello and welcome to the web page of 6 Holly!
We can't wait to show you what we get up to throughout the year...
6 Holly are really astounding us with their efforts with their homework this half term. We have had some very detailed and realistic shields as well as some very colourful and eye-catching mosaics. One that really impressed everyone was Amber's. Amazing work, Amber!
If you would like to see everyone else's efforts, then please scroll down and click the link near the bottom of our class page. We can't wait to see what else appears this term.

Maths Games - Rounding
Here in 6 Holly, we love to be a little competitive and battle against our partner in maths games. This week's game was one where we had to round our way to mathematical victory. We had lots of fun and consolidated our rounding skills at the same time. Well done to all the champions!
Maths in 6 Holly
We love using Tarsia Triangles to show our understanding of different aspects of maths. This lesson was all about multiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 1000. The children in our class proved to be very competitive. Great to see!
6 Holly Reading Buddies
In our classroom, we really like helping each other out with our learning. This helps us to improve and also build on our relationships with our peers. Here you can see us busy in DEAR time. Our class reading buddies love to help each other!
Science - Water Resistance
In our science lesson this week, we had a great time making boats. We had to make a boat with only one piece of tin foil, that would both float, move across water the fastest and hold the most cargo. We used all our understanding of water resistance and streamlined objects and had great fun doing so! Have a look at the photos to see just how much fun we were having!
In our French lesson this week, we have been learning all about actions. We loved playing the games to help us with our vocabulary understanding. Take a look ...
As you can see, Fenton is really getting in to DEAR time in 6 Holly!
The Body Coach Workout
We loved the Body Coach Monday workout today. We really got our hearts racing and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We can't wait to try Tuesday's!
School Councillor and Team Captains
After lots of speeches and voting, Year 6 chose their School Councillors and Team Captains this week.
A huge well done to Alyssa and Jacob who were chosen to represent their houses; Mars and Neptune. As well as a big hand to Adam, who was chosen by his classmates to be our School Councillor.
I am already sure they will fulfil their new, important roles to the very best of their ability.
Turning Over a New Leaf
At the start of the year, Mrs Cvijetic set the school the challenge of 'turning over a new leaf'. This meant that it was a great chance for us (teachers included) to think of areas we know we can improve on and start the school year by working to do this!
It was a really tough decision for Mrs Marsh as she could only pick two children from a class that was very well behaved to start with!
The chosen two children who received the certificates were:
Harry - a self confessed chatter box who decided he would try hard to not talk so much. Harry's behaviour has been impeccable and he very much deserved his certificate.
Jasmin - she could sometimes be a little shy with her work and not want to show it to Mrs Marsh. We do not know why because it has always been done to a high standard and Jasmin is already growing in confidence.
Well done Jasmin and Harry (along with your classmates) you have both made an excellent start to the year!
Kallie seems to be starting the year as she means to go on! A massive well done to her, after she was able to collect ALL her trophies from the 'End of Year Sports Presentation Awards'.
Timeline of History
We have been starting of pur topic of 'Empires of the Ancient Worlds' by investigating timelines of history. We looked at everything from the Stone Age to the Romans to the Tudors and beyond.
We now understand a little bit more about where the Ancient Greeks fit into History and are ready to start learning all about their lives.
Science Lessons in 6 Holly
So far, the shiny new 6 Holly are making an excellent start to the school year and working their socks off! This was no different in Science this week. We loved using the Newton metres (which we found out were named after Sir Isaac Newton). Take a look at us investigating both the mass and weight of objects so we could then work out what their weight would be on the moon! Lots of fun was had destroying Mrs Marsh's classroom in the process!
This year, it's all about the girls where our buddies are concerned. So far, they are doing an excellent job in their roles. Well done, girls!
Push Up Days - July 2018
5 Holly (aka the new 6 Holly) worked so hard on their two push up days with Miss Lowe (soon to be Mrs Marsh). They drew some amazing Roman Soldiers or Greek Amphoras (vases).
Harry did an especially good job, completing both activities to a high standard!
I think we are going to have an excellent year!
