Year 6 had a wonderful trip to Herd Farm to consolidate our learning from last term about the Stone Age. We had the chance to: dress up, paint our faces, build dens and create fires just like the people from the Stone Age!
Year 6 took part in a wonderful Carnival dancing workshop. We had lots of fun and got to try on some beautiful headdresses.
For British Science week this year, Year 6 were experimenting with baking. This linked to our Science work on micro-organisms. We had lots of fun making bread in different batches, tasting it and writing down our observations.
As part of our Literacy work this term, we have begun making papier mache dragon eggs. We blew up balloons then coated them in layers of tissue paper and newspaper dipped in PVA glue mixed with water. Our next step is to paint them, we can't wait!
Last half term our topic was Ancient Greece. We learned all about Ancient Greek life, as well as about their myths and legends. Here are some of our favourite Ancient Greece-style pots that we made. We couldn't wait to take them home!
As part of our discussion text unit, we have learned all about modal verbs. Here are some photos of us placing modal verbs on a continuum to help us decide whether they express certainty or possibility!
In our Literacy lessons we have been learning all about discussion texts. For our "hook" for this topic we played real life Pokémon Go in the playground! Our final discussion text piece will be titled "Should children play Pokémon Go?" and the most improved writer will win an extra Poke-prize!
