Welcome to St. Philip’s Primary

Year 6

Welcome to your Year 6 Class Page. You are proving yourselves to be the ultimate role models of the school and are becoming exemplary leaders. We are really pleased to see you are really embracing your roles as Reception Buddies; Sports Leaders; Eco Committee members; Pride Team Captains;  Morning ; Librarians and Chicken Coup Monitors.  Both Mrs Hewitt and I are excited about watching you continue to grow and flourish as independent, resilient and hardworking individuals.

As you are probably aware, we LOVE books in Year 6 and we like to hear about what you have enjoyed reading.  Complete a book review, or a book recommendation book mark, and place it in our reading den for others to see; spread the word if you have come across a good book!

Keep your eye on your Class Page for photographs of our learning journey.

As part of our enterprise project, Year 6 explored what made the fizz in bath bombs.  They discovered it was the chemical reaction between acids and alkalis. Using red cabbage universal indicator, Year 6 tested the PH levels of a range of substances.  Take a look at the chemists in action!

Following our topic on the transatlantic slave trade, Year 6 visited the Liverpool Slavery Museum where they explored slavery further. They also took part in a workshop on human rights and learned about some of the brave and inspirational people, past and present, who have worked tirelessly to campaign for the human rights of others. Take a look at our pictures.

On our class wish list was to work in a 'real science lab' and the teachers at Canon Slade CE High School made this come true! Take a look at the pictures to see us as brilliant biologists and cracking chemists...
