Learning and News

Tuesday 15th June - During science day, we attended a virtual Q&A with Professor Brian Cox and discussed the role that women have in STEM. Year 6 used their scientific enquiry skills to investigate how density, buoyancy and up-thrust contributed to the sinking of The Titanic. We conducted two investigations; the first was answering the question, why does a peeled orange sink, but an unpeeled one float?

Week commencing 07.06.21 – This week we have taken part in an E- Safety week. We have learned all about empathy, maintaining healthy relationships whilst online, the laws of cyberbullying, screen time, digital wellbeing and how to keep our personal information safe. To conclude the week, we created a Sway to display our learning.

Week commencing 24.05.21 - Over the last few weeks in art, we have looked at how artists use perspective and illusions in drawings. Here are some examples of our work.

During First Aid Week, Class 14 have explored the ways in which we can help casualties who have had an accident. This includes: the recovery position, CPR and what to do when someone is having an asthma attack. We have: made model blood to show how our body reacts when we bleed, made paper lungs to see how asthma can affect airways and practised CPR, the recovery position and role played certain emergency scenarios.

Week commencing 03.05.21 - This week in English, we have written a narrative based on the book "A Beautiful Lie'. We created our own books, including a prologue and epilogue.

Week commencing 19.04.21 - We have started our science topic by exploring classification techniques and we grouped sweets according to the classification key.

Animal Classification is our science topic this half term. Did you know that on the planet there are billions of different types of living things? The main ones you’ve learned about so far are animal and plants, you’ve also touched on things like bacteria and viruses, now these are not animals, they have their own kingdom within living creatures. This half term we will investigate the 5 main kingdoms: Plants, Animals, Monera, Protists and Fungi.

Red Nose Day 2021 - We have written our favourite jokes to put in our windows at home. We want to share a smile with our community.

During this half term, we will be exploring Evolution and Inheritance. The Earth is very old. In fact, scientists have worked out that it is 4.6 billion years old. From looking at fossils and working out their ages, scientists have been able to find out when life first started. In Year 6, we will be learning how species have evolved over thousands of years.

W C 8.3.21. This week in science, we used our knowledge of surface area to create a paperchain that was malleable yet strong to see how large we could make our paper chain.

WC 01.03.2 - In DT this week, we have developed skills in frying, poaching, boiling and scrambling eggs.

As part of our 'connect' well- being session this week, we have drawn the other half of our friends face as a way to understand perspective.

Throughout this topic, we will investigate the function of the heart and measure lung capacity.

Did you know?

  • The heart beats around 3 billion times in the average person’s lifetime. 
  • If you put your circulatory system on a straight line, it is actually long enough to orbit the Earth two and a half times!
  • The human stomach can stretch large enough to hold almost 1 gallon (4.5 litres) of water. Where does it all go?

Our new history topic for this half term is 'How did WWII impact our area?'. We will be exploring how the events of the second World War effected people, transport, food supplies and the landscape of our local area.
