Autumn Term - Week 4
Continuing our Fairy Tales, we have, this week, written our own setting and character descriptions and have particularly enjoyed writing scary and ghoulish expanded noun phrases.
In maths, we have expanded our knowledge of working with decimals and in science, we have used Bob (our 3D human torso) to explain the whole circulatory system to our friends.
In art, we have enjoyed creating our own 'Truisms' - posters with a meaningful message.
Autumn Term - Week 3
This week, Year 6 have begun their Fairytales with a Twist topic and have been reading the fantastic Zombierella. As part of that learning we have been acting as journalists, reporting on the appalling murder of Mr Wolf by the Three Little Pigs!
In science we have learned about the structure of the blood and re-created the parts of the blood using some sweet treats. (Don't tell on us... but we ate them afterwards!). In art we have been learning about the crazy life and works of Salvadore Dali and have re-created our own version of one of his classic paintings.
Autumn Term - Week 2
This week we have been writing our application letters for roles within our school - Head Boy/Girl, Prefects, House Captains and Sports Captains. In maths we have been looking at place value and in science we have been investigating the role of the heart in the circulatory system.
In our geography sessions we have been discovering the power of volcanic eruptions and the reason for their occurrence. Additionally, we were delighted to welcome our new Spanish teacher and began learning the words for family members.
Autumn Term - Week 1
What a fantastic start to year 6. The children have all settled in really well this week. They have created their own class charter and targets for the year.
We established our classroom routines and began to think about responsibilities the children might like to take on during the year. They then wrote application letters to Mrs Weeks to apply for the roles they would like.
We focused on our wellbeing art work this week and created abstract masks to represent different emotions.
