Learning and News

Week commencing 26.4.21 - In PSHCE, we explored what makes a team work effectively and well together. We used communication skills to build a bridge that had to meet a specific criteria and time frame.

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.

In science this week, we explored Darwin's theory of finch evolution by using rice and utensils to see which beak size would be most desirable when searching for food.

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.

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.

Our topic in science this half term is 'Healthy Bodies'

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?

In Art, we have used alternative techniques to create a piece based on Monet's Garden of Giverny. (11.12.20)

Class 13 researched how women, children and soldiers were effected in their everyday lives during the second World War. (4.12.20)

Class 13 explored how pitch could be represented by hand movements using the Solfa scale this week in music. We applied this knowledge when recreating 'songs from WW2' (27.11.20)

In art, we recreated some of Monet's landscape pieces by using impressionist techniques to capture the light and create shadows (20.11.10)

Class 13 explored how silhouettes were created by forming shadows and drawing the outlines. We used opaque objects to block the light (13.11.20)

This week in science, Class 13 explored how light travels and what happens when it passes through translucent and transparent objects. (6.11.20)

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. Research and enquiry will lead our learning in this topic as we delve into this life-changing era.

In DT this week, Class 13 have started to measure and create the bases for their electronic games.

In DT, Class 13 have been practising their skills in creating circuits for a future electronic game.

This term, our geography topic is 'Where does our stuff come from?'. We will look at how our food, clothes and other everyday items get to our front door. Year 6 will explore transport links with other countries on other continents and the journey of items from production to consumption.
