Y6 Computing – Using Word/Google Docs

Here’s a video from a few years ago. Your class may use Google Docs/Sheets, but it is very similar to Word and EXCEL. Good luck.

The 100 is Coming…. But What Is It?

What could it be? Have you seen some posters around school? A hundred what? Well, my attention have certainly been grabbed.  A purple form for the most entertaining, inventive idea of what it could be. But make sure you expand your ideas and give detail. Explain WHY.

Are You Up For The Kindness Challenge?

So, how are you getting on with the challenge? Let us know what you have done and what positive effects it has had.

Welcome Back and Happy Roald Dahl Day!

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday! We are all very excited to see you all back at school and hope that you are all full of enthusiasm for the new school year.

Today, as you probably know, is Roald Dahl Day, so please let us know what your favourite Roald Dahl book is and why. I think mine is probably Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it is full of humour, has a sprinkling of danger, lots of suspense and of course is a fabulously constructed story. I love both the movies that have been made too, however, I have a particular fondness for the old one due to watching it as a child.

So, which Roald Dahl book do you think is a real page-turner and you would highly recommend it to someone in your year group?

Happy blogging and remember to read the blog rules before writing a comment.



World Environment Day! What Can You Do?

Happy World Environment Day!
Today is World Environment Day, which is a day set up by the United Nations to raise awareness and encourage people to protect the planet. This year it is focusing on beating plastic pollution.
Plastic pollution is destorying our planet and the problem is at crisis point.
* 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year
* That is enough plastic to circle the Earth 4 times every single year
* Plastic kills 1.5 million marine animals and birds every year
* By 2050 they have predicted there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight
* Around the world 1 million plastic bottles are bought every minute
* 5 trillion plastic bags are sold worldwide every year
* 50% of plastic produced is only used once and then thrown away
With these daunting facts, its time to take action.
The students in KS2 have been taking action by not bringing in plastic in their snacks today. We have also set up a competition whereby the children will be noting down each time they refuse single-use plastic and then the child that has refused the most plastic by 18th June will win a prize in the end of year assembly.
Now it’s time to do your bit. Help save the planet and refuse single-use plastic!

Y6 Scratch- Adding a Timer and Score


Shooting Sprite and Adding a Background

Hi, this video is from a few years ago and a few things may be different. I’ll make a new one as soon as possible and swap them. However, I just wanted to show you what comes next. Thanks

Digital Learning Competition

Hi all,

As you hopefully know, the competition has been extended. Below is the prise for the best entry. It’s a BBC microbit and inventors kit!!! A microbit is basically a pocket sized PC that you can code on and the kit, that comes with it, helps you do lots of exciting  projects and experiments. You can use a micro USB or Bluetooth to connect it to other devises too.

As Charlie and Raphy created a wonderful, historical documentary – I want them to help me make a movie. And what’s so good about that? Well, we will use a new 360º camera that we have recently bought! I can’t wait. We can create fantastic 360º videos that can be viewed on an iPad or VR head set!!!


So, get creating!
