THE LEGENDARY LEARNERS
In class we have explored a wide range of biographies, based on the lives of different people through history up to the modern day. We unpicked the features of a biography and had a go at writing a class biography as a shared task. In preparation for Bonfire Night Team LL were set the task of researching the life of Guy Fawkes. Pupils then moved on to developing thier own biography writing based on his life.
As part of our wellbeing work this half term Team LL have been exploring identity. The class have been putting together presentations celebrating their likes and passions. We have explored peer pressure, the importance of being ourselves and accepting similarities and difference in others. The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their presentations with other pupils in the class.
Whilst learning about the impact of significant individuals in RE, Team LL explored the importance of Martin Luther King on the civil rights movement in America; including the significance of the words in the 'I have a dream' speech' for us today.
Year 6 have absolutely loved learning about natural disasters, tectonic plates and the Pacific Ring of fire. They have applied geography and science to explore the geological make up of the earth and how earthquakes and volcanoes are formed. The class applied their D&T skills to design an earthquake survival kit. During art lessons the class have been sketching a range of natural disasters and are currently in the process of designing models to represent their chosen disaster. Through drama work the class have explored a range of interview scenarios and applied their research skills to find out about a range of disasters around the world and through history.
Fabulous work this half term from the year 6s, who have tackled a topic on circuits and electricity. The children are in the process of planning their own science investigations linked to electricity so watch this space when we return after half term to get practical.
Well done Team LL on an incredibly hardworking half term. The class have completed a place value topic and honed their calculation skills by revising formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Who said long division was tricky? Not a problem for the mathematical megaminds in Team LL. Fantastic application and problem solving with properties of number including: primes, squares and cubed numbers. Our final week will be spent tackling tricky problems linked to BODMAS and the order of operations. A successful half term. Well done!
Outstanding literacy work over the last couple of weeks. Team LL have worked really hard to generate ambitious vocabulary and add a range of devices to produce some amazing descriptions of Alex Rider's journey through the Dozmary Mine. I loved reading them! Well done. I am certain we have some budding fiction writers here at Park Street.
