Year 6's Blog

What we've been learning about:

Year 6 have been chosen to trial the use of Twitter instead of the blog to see what people think. So far, we have found that photos can be uploaded far quicker, so we should be able to have many more for you to see! It also means that children can help compose the tweets and ensure that anything they think is important is included. 
You do not need a Twitter account to see the page but would need to set one up to be able to 'like' and comment on posts.

We are in the process of setting it up and starting to tweet, so please use this link to have a look: 

Please feel free to let us know what you think and if you have a preference.

Sporting Success

Our Year 6 sports teams have had a fantastic week. Firstly, the sports hall athletics team took part in the Sheffield city final - the first time Bradway have ever made it that far. They managed to come 5th on the day and, as the competition started with more than 50 schools, they should all be incredibly proud! There were some particularly strong performances including a victory for Amy in the hurdles and 2nd place for the mixed relay team.

The same day, the girls' football team took part in the South Yorkshire final and managed to win! Some girls had even taken part in the athletics in the morning as well! They will now progress to an area final against teams from places as far away as Liverpool. Mr Cooper and Mr Perkins were incredibly impressed with the positive attitude everyone showed, despite the awful (and very cold) weather. We look forward to the next round and seeing how far they can go.

We are now in the process of selecting a team for the upcoming handball competition. Last year we managed to come 2nd in Sheffield, so hopefully we can go one better!

Have a good weekend everyone.

The Deep

What a fantastic day out! We hope everyone had a really good time and now you all have lots of ideas for creating your own sea creature. We were really impressed with the amount of notes that were taken and how much of an interest you showed in the exhibits. The aim is to now use everything you have learned about sea creatures to begin to generate ideas of your own, ready to write a non-chronological report. Feel free to look online to get even more ideas, particularly of special skills/tricks your creature may have.

It has been a great first week back, despite being miserable weather, so well done everyone. Have a good weekend.

This week has been very busy! Everyone has taken part in some Christmas-themed maths with some great teamwork shown. In literacy, everyone took part in a Christmas SPaG quiz and it was very close deciding the winners. Tomorrow is our party and remember, if you bring in £1 for Mrs Heap's charity - Shelter, you can wear a Christmas jumper and slippers. We are looking forward to seeing all the crazy jumpers you arrive in!

We would like to say a Merry Christmas to everyone in Year 6 and all their families. It has been a fantastic start to Year 6. You have all worked really hard and should be very proud of how you have settled into the routine and how you have tackled the SATs papers we have done so far. 

Have a lovely two weeks and see you in January!

Christmas Performance

We have been really impressed with how well everyone has learnt the lyrics for our scene in Cinderella. We have some amazing singers and performers. Our ugly sisters have been incredible...willing to sing in front of everyone and they have done brilliantly. Thank you to everyone who has brought props in to be used and to you all for behaving so sensibly and singing your loudest. 

In lessons, we are finishing off our Christmas wish poems for Santa. There have been some very unusual requests: making sure dad doesn't snore, a wish that turns them into a fish, a new fez and a harp with fifteen strings! They are very creative and we are really looking forward to you all performing them during the week.

In maths, Mr Perkins's group are finishing off their work on fractions and Miss Svoboda's group are doing some lessons on shape with a Christmas theme.

Keep up the hard work...only one full week to go!

An Introduction to Bradway Primary

Selected Quotes


Just wanted to congratulate the school and all those involved on yesterday's enterprise event.  It was a fantastic opportunity to raise funds whilst engaging the whole school in the initiative. Great to see such good ideas and some budding sales, marketing and advertising stars of the future! All the children seemed to be involved and enjoying themselves - I met some very persuasive sales teams and was impressed by the level of enthusiasm from staff and pupils alike.

My son has been excited about this all week, being very proud of his contribution and it was a pleasure to attend it with him. "
