 Term 1: Horrible Histories - Vile Victorians.

“On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, Year 6 went on a trip to St John’s House Museum in Warwick.  When we got there, we had to dress in Victorian clothes and go into the classroom.  We spent the morning with Miss Roach, the teacher.  She read us a story and then we had to practice our handwriting on slates.  We also did some maths problems about pennies, shillings and pounds.  Later, we learnt about a laundry maid’s job.  After lunch, we had a look around the museum.  There were World War II weapons, as well as Victorian toys.  Thank you to the adults who came with us – Mrs Hawkin, Mrs English, Mrs Tanner, Mrs Davis and Mr Hagger.”

 - Hasan Ali; Anas Hussain; Kyra Hickman and Luke Neal 

 

We looked at the story of 'Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens and wrote our own version of the 'workhouse' scene.

Here is the display of our work.

 

 Term 2: The Firework Maker's Daughter

 Our D & T focus this term has been researching and designing our own firework packaging.

 

Term 3: Shakespeare

This term, we will be finding out about Shakespeare and his many works.

We have already read 'Macbeth' and 'The Tempest' and will be focusing on a setting description for our 'Big Write'.

In history, we will be learning about the causes of the War of the Roses: here we are drawing Tudor roses using a compass and protractor.

 Here is our work on display:

 Term 4: Living Things

During term 4, we thought about the natural world. We had lots of discussions about animals and their rights. One of our areas to focus on in literacy was poetry and so the children were able to practise their skills, then had their work displayed. There was also an opportunity to think about animal markings and produce some artwork around this topic.

 

Term 5: Revision and SATs

The children are working hard at the moment in preparation for their SAT tests. However, there is still time for lots of fun - we are trying to make the most of any good weather!

 Here we are enjoying the sunshine and trying our hand at pointillism!

After working hard all morning, we decided to relax with the Year 2's and read some stories.

...and rehearsing for our May Day celebration!

And we've finished!

The children have all worked incredibly hard and we are very proud of them.

Here they are enjoying a celebratory hot chocolate and pastries.

A huge thank you to Stephen's mum for providing the snacks.

Here we are enjoying a film and eating brownies.

Thank you Molly's mum!

May Day Celebration

Here we are taking part in the May Day celebration.

The procession, the dance and the coronation.

Term 6: Circus

 

On Thursday 7th June, the year 6 class went to a Kwick Cricket Tournament at Banbury Cricket Club. There were 4 schools in total: Cropredy, Bishop Loveday and Orchard Fields. We had 3 teams: Hardwick A, Hardwick B and the Girls team. Our captains were: Zak, Stephen and Olivia. The PE value of the day was, ‘honesty’ and our three badges were awarded to Archie, Borys and Izzy. Team B came fourth in their group, the girls came second and team A were the winners of their group! Overall winners were Cropredy but we all had a great day. Thank you to all the adults for their help.

On Friday 8th of June, the year 6’s went bowling. We had 5 people on each team, we had a lane per team and had 2 games each. Lots of people scored STRIKES!!! Once all the teams had finished, we all ran into the arcade. Miss Mills even let us have candy floss from the candy floss machine! The year 6’s played all kinds of games from shooting to dancing.  On the walk back to school, we played at Spiceball Park. It was so much fun! Thank you to all the adults that helped organise the day.

This term, Mr Pemble has been joining us every Friday morning with a group of children to run a fitness club.

Here they are sharing their skills with the other Year 6 children.

Leavers' Party

This year, as a special treat, the children were given the opportunity to cook their own party food. On Thursday and Friday, they worked with Mrs Hawkin to produce cakes, sandwiches, salads and even a mocktail. The party started at 5pm and everyone seemed to have a fantastic time.
