THE LEGENDARY LEARNERS
This term we are exploring natural disasters and will be working in groups to create models based on natural disasters. IN preparation for this we have been exploring images and the impact of natural disasters. We have been developing sketches in our art books and exploring the use of pencil crayons, pastels and charcoal to represent mood and movement. We have worked on mixed media drawing incorporating photographic images and have begun to discuss plans for our final 3d model in our groups.
Our artist of the half term is JMW Turner we have been exploring his techniques for representing extreme weather in his artwork.
Compare and Group Together Everyday Materials on the Basis of Their Properties
Children in Team AF and LL recapped their learning and knowledge of properties of materials. They revisited and defined property language such as: insulating, magnetic, flammable, permeable, flexible, magnetic and absorbent. The children collected a range of materials and suggested a range of tests they could carry out to test certain properties. Pupils developed their own recording methods and criteria for testing and measuring. They compared, described and sorted a range of materials by their properties. Pupils recorded their findings and fed back to the class.
In Year 6 we felt we couldn't let Queen Elizabeth's 70 years on the throne go by without using it as an excuse to engage in some amazing learning activities. Children worked in pairs to research the fascinating life of Queen Elizabeth they then went on to explore features of a factfile before developing their own. The children created an amazing selection of masterpieces which have been entered into a national portrait competition. This was in addition to a range of other art and craft activities to mark the occasion. We learnt and performed the national anthem and then enjoyed getting stuck into a celebratory afternoon tea.
Pupils were lucky enough to enjoy a musical performance by Music Hub staff. Children learnt about different instruments and the instrument families they belonged to. We explored music from different places and times and pupils thoroughly enjoyed sharing their thoughts and opinions. Conversation carried on back in classrooms and inspired pupils to explore, share and perform some of their own favourites.
Well done to our Y6 pupils who successfully completed the Bikeability course. It is great to know you guys have demonstrated great listening, superb cycling skills and a clear understanding of how to keep yourselves safe on the roads. Well done!
Year 6 Develop their Model Making Skills Further through Plaster of Paris and Exploration of a Range of Paint Finishes to Recreate the Splendor of Ancient Egypt
We have been working incredibly hard in Year 6 completing a unit of work on algebra and mathematical formula. We have also been converting units of measure and revising the properties of shape. In literacy we have continued to develop our research skills finding out about Buddhism and Ancient Egypt. We have been exploring diary writing and developing our grammar skills. We have been learning about the Active and Passive voice and the subjunctive form.
Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed making the transition from French to Spanish. We have worked hard to learn the basics and to explore the geography of Spain. We have been building key vocabulary and developing conversations in class.
Our oldest pupils in school have thoroughly enjoyed being back in the ICT suite and developing their computing skills. Pupils have applied their coding skills to create online games. We have worked on a range of Internet safety projects including: educational games, identifying risks and creating projects to help pupils keep themselves and others safe
