In Year 6, our history day was all about the Stone Age. We did all sorts of fun activities, including: face-painting, making our own paintbrush, creating cave paintings, watching a theatrical production called ‘Prehistoric Park’ and completing linking quiz sheets, turning the playground into a Stone Age cave using chalks, creating a paper woolly mammoth and more!
Year 6 spent the day covering objectives they missed in Year 5 due to lockdown. These included: demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes; explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials (i.e. ash); and describe the changes as humans develop to old age.
We have been reading 'Holes' by Louis Sacher as our class reader this half-term. We have immensely enjoyed reading the book and meeting all of the characters, like Stanley and Zero. In the novel, the children live and work in a desert-like area called Camp Green Lake. For our DT learning, we had to design and make a shelter for this habitat, using materials from the scrap shed. We split in to two teams and had to select materials that were appropriate for the job, as well as figuring out how to join them together while working as a team. Who do you think built the most effective shelter?
In our Music lessons, we learned how to play 'Blinded By Your Grace Part 2' by Stormzy on the glockenspiel and chime bars. Here is a short clip of us playing the song.Blinded By Your Grace Part 2
We've really been enjoying doing our Maths work this half-term, especially our work on volume. Here are some photos of us using linking cubes to create cubes and cuboids with particular volumes as part of our A task.
In Spring 2, we made collages inspired by William Morris. We used digital photography to create our collages.
In Year 6, we have been learning to play the Glockenspiel and Chime bars. Here is our lovely rendition of Jingle Bells. Enjoy!
On the last afternoon of half-term, we had a wonder Christmas party. We played classic party games such as: pass the parcel, musical chairs, musical bumps and sleeping lions. We had lots of fun!
Year 6 planned an investigation to see if variations in circuit components can change the outcome of a circuit
In Autumn 2, Year 6 made Greek pots from clay. We designed, sculpted, painted and glazed our pots independently.
