Maths

In Year 6 we have a Maths focus on conversion facts. Regular practise helps the children become fluent and confident which will then support them as they build their Maths knowledge giving them a strong foundation ready for Secondary school. Please see below for ways to support your child at home.

World Book Day!

We had a wonderful World Book Day exploring our new book ‘Leon and the Place Between’ in class and we wrote some brilliant pieces choosing vocabulary that would create setting and atmosphere. We also spent some quiet time in the library before we did some reading with our Year 1 reading buddies!!

Heart Dissection

Today, Year 6 students at Sacred Heart School had a remarkable experience as part of our Science curriculum. They had the opportunity to dissect a heart, gaining a hands-on experience like future scientists. The significance of this activity cannot be overstated, as it provided a unique and memorable learning experience.

Under the guidance of our biologist, Mrs Noronha, the students carefully observed and explored the intricate details of the heart. They identified different chambers, valves, and blood vessels, discovering how they all work together to keep our bodies functioning. This practical approach to learning allowed the students to engage with the subject matter on a deeper level, enhancing their understanding of the structure and function of the heart.

The heart dissection activity also fostered valuable scientific skills, including careful observation, precision, and teamwork. Students worked collaboratively in small groups, sharing their findings and discussing their observations with their peers. This encouraged communication skills and helped them develop a scientific mindset, where inquiry and curiosity are encouraged.

By providing Year 6 students with the opportunity to dissect a heart, we aimed to inspire a passion for biology and ignite their interest in becoming future scientists. This experiential learning approach not only enhanced their knowledge and understanding but also allowed them to develop crucial scientific skills that will serve them well in their future studies.
