Class 12 Year 6

Our classroom displays 

Class 12 have been learning all about Ancient Greece. Tony North visited our class and we learnt many hoplite tactics, and re-enacted The Battle of Marathon. It was a thoroughly engaging day and class 12 had great fun. See pictures on the website of Class 12 dressed as Greek hoplites. 

Class 12 had the pleasure of having Amanda Fleming in to teach them all about pulleys and electric motors. This was linked to Design and Technology and our Literacy topic. They had a fantastic day and created their very own electric Christmas themed buggies. 

Manchester Actor Company visited St Richard’s today to perform poems to our Year 6 children.  There were various poems performed from authors including William Wordsworth, William Shakespeare and Wildred Owens.  Ruth, Gavin and Nathan brought all the poems to life and the children and adults thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon watching them.  The children also enjoyed asking questions at the end.  Thank you Manchester Actor Company. 

All Year 6 children from St Richard’s attended the Marist Centre for a day of reflection and took part in various activities to learn about responsibility.  They took part in small and large group sessions learning how to be responsible in school, at home, in the community and to be responsible for their own possessions and those of others.  All the children enjoyed writing their own prayers, taking part in small group drama sessions, showing their understanding of God’s love for us and how we can show our love for Him. 

In religion, Class 12 have been covering ‘Loving’ as our religion topic.  We discussed how love is shown for others with a big focus on unconditional love.  We understand how values inspire and influence Christians to demonstrate unconditional love.  The children created a jigsaw heart of many different ways that unconditional love can be portrayed.
