St Andrew's (Barnsbury) CofE Primary School

Canterbury Class (Year 6)

Welcome to Canterbury Class!

Our class is named after the beautiful Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, and we start the year learning the history of this wonderous building to help us understand more about why it is such an important place for Christians around the world.

Year 6 is such an exciting year, and it's always a proud moment to finally be the oldest class in the school. It's an important year too; with our SATs in May, where we get the opportunity to show off everything we have learned in our time at St. Andrews. This doesn't mean that we don't relax and have fun though, at the start of each year we head off on our school journey, this year being the Isle of Wight - 5 whole days away from home!

Our year is filled with exciting and education school trips too; from regular visits to the library, to local parks, London universities, music halls, and participate in film festivals as well as regular visitors to our school too.

It's in year 6 where we really start developing our independence, both as learners and as people, all ready for secondary school. We're role models in our school, and to each other and proud to be Canterbury class.

Discovery With Three workshop

Year 6 welcomed Alan and Jess from Discovery With Three who delivered a workshop on Stop Motion Animation. We worked in groups of 4 and 1 pair to create a stop motion animation videos using Lego. We decided on movement by shooting photos, approximately 5 shots for 1 second of film adding text, audio and sound effects. We used blue tack to secure our shots and invisible fishing wire to have Lego figures fly. It required great communication, film editing skills, patience, teamwork and lots of great ideas to produce our videos.
