Year 6 @ Holy Family

Class of 2014/15

Football Tournament

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jan-26-2015

Well done to the members of the class who represented Holy Family in this term’s football tournament.

Mr Wing and Mrs Pearce were very proud in the way they acted throughout and their brilliant team spirit!

Was it fun?  Can anyone add any stories that happened whilst the rest of us were back in class?

Our new science topic is dissolving so we began the lessons by having a go at dissolving.

Our aim was to make a list of solids that do or do not dissolve. We also had to see if they changed the appearance, smell and taste of the liquid (some pretty nasty tasting ones too!)

Class Party

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jan-16-2015

Year 6 clubbed together for their first class party of the year.

We had games, crisps, some delicious home-made cakes, lots of music, balloon animals, pass the parcel, dance-offs, pop and some funny forfeits!

Did you enjoy yourselves?  Would you pay for another party?

Victorian Models

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jan-11-2015

Year 6 again have showed that we have some talented artists!

Our latest piece of art was based on our Victorian topic. Each person had to research the clothes of a Victorian person (rich, poor, army, school etc.).  We then had to use the research to create a sketch of the character.  Finally, using clay, each member of the class made their character and painted it.

There were some brilliant end results!  Check them out!  Which is your favourite?

Jesse Tree

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-30-2014

Each day through Advent the whole school has met to share a story from the Old Testament.  Each time we began by lighting the Advent wreath then teachers and members of our class took part in sharing a reading before choosing children to hang symbols on our Jesse Tree.

Mr Waywell’s task was to sum up the all of the stories on the last day so that we could review what we have heard and get ready for our final Advent service.  Year 6 helped out by dressing up in some pretty silly costumes to be the main characters of Bible stories.

The assembly was enjoyed by everyone and many teachers and pupils said how much it had made them laugh.

Thanks for your help…I thought you were all ace!

Year 6 does the X-Factor!

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-30-2014

A HUGE congratulations to our X-Factor finalists.  They have worked their way through 10 rounds and finished in the top 3!

The competition began back in October and everyone in the class took part.  We had some great acts  and it was brilliant to see everyone’s confidence grow as they sang in front of the class!

Christmas Pringles

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-30-2014

In our last week before Christmas Year 6 used some creativity and skill to turn a boring Pringles tube into a festive container.

We had fairies, penguins, reindeers and many more!  The best part was that we made our own truffles to fill them up when we had finished!

What did you think of the truffles?  Did your families like your tubes?

Christmas Disco

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-30-2014

The best way to end a term and get into the festive spirit is a Christmas Disco!

This year the whole school had their disco at the same time, with infants in the infant hall and juniors in the junior hall.

There were lots of sweets, plenty of games, face paints and even some tattoos!  (My favourite part was the whole of the juniors dancing to the YMCA!)

What did you think?  Did you enjoy yourself?

Christmas Dinner

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-28-2014

Thank you to Mrs Miller and the cooks for a delicious Christmas dinner!  We had some crackers too…what was your AMAZING prize?  Can you write your favourite cracker joke?

Here is mine:

What did the snowman say to the aggressive carrot?

“Get outa my face!!!!”

Cross Country

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-17-2014

More running today as Year 6 completed their final cross-country of the year.  This time it had a festive twist as everyone wore a festive hat (or their antlers!)

As a reward for their hard work (and braving the cold once more) we ended with a hot-chocolate (squirty cream and marshmallows too!)

Reindeer Run

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-17-2014

To raise money for Brian House, today the school held a ‘Reindeer Run’.

Wearing antlers and a flashing nose, the whole school took part in a run around the school (juniors twice!)

Miss Linton led everyone in a warm-up first and then we all braved the cold weather and ran enthusiastically…good job everyone!

Walking Club: Stannah

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-14-2014

This month’s walking club took us around the estuary at Stannah.  Sadly we were not as fortunate as usual and the weather wasn’t the best (it rained for the most part!)


As ever the walk was an eventful one!  We:

  • Saw lots of boats (some very old ones!)
  • Walked in some long grass
  • Got stuck in mud
  • Dug Kyi and Sheick out of mud
  • Jumped in pools
  • Scared some horses
  • Built a den
  • Screamed when Mr Waywell pushed us too high on the swing
  • Jumped in puddles
  • Got very wet
  • Got even more muddy!
  • Finished with ice creams
