Term 5

In English already this term, we have been focussing on editing and improving our writing.  While working in partners, we have been using highlighters and our purple, polishing pens to make corrections and add in better vocabulary to different pieces of writing.

Earlier in the term, Year 5 had a visit from ‘THE EXPLORER DOME’. After crawling inside we learnt about the planets, our solar system and our sun whilst looking in awe at the images projected on the walls. We remembered a lot from our Science lessons on ‘Space’ and asked some excellent questions. As we are learning about the Ancient Greeks, we also heard some stories about how the zodiac relates to the Greek Gods and learnt how to spot different constellations in the night sky.

6CM have thoroughly enjoyed their study of Howl’s Moving Castle (written by Diana Wynn Jones). They also relished the opportunity to watch the Studio Ghibli film adaptation. Based on the book, pupils have written descriptively to explore Sophie’s transformation into old age, as a result of an evil curse by the Witch of the Waste. They have written formally to explain the different functions of Howl’s Castle and how it works, as well as writing some incredible character and setting descriptions.

 

In Art, we have also studied how to draw anime characters and have based our artwork around this style of drawing. We have transformed our own self-portraits into the anime style and also mimicked characters from the film.

 

 

Term 4

Year 6 have been trying extremely hard this term, and as a thank you for their hard work, we treated them to an Easter egg hunt! Here are some action shots from our hunt. Happy Easter - have a wonderful, safe half term!

This term, we have been studying the Mayans. To immerse ourselves into the topic, we completed a carousel of activities, including Mayan Maths, Web Detectives, Ancient Art, Timelines and Maps. We worked in groups to capture what life was like in the Mayan times. By taking the journey through the ages, we were able to use our researching, inference and creative skills to learn more about what life was like.

We now have our bands for Rock Steady Music – we have been having lots of fun learning a song of our choice and practising ready for a big performance for the future! Take a look at some pictures of us having lots of fun in our group.

As part of our Mayan topic, we have also begun creating Maya-inspired clay tiles. 6CM have worked incredibly hard on this topic.

Term 3

In Year 6, we are lucky to have Rock Steady Music coming in to teach us! Throughout the next term we will be forming bands in our classes, this will give us the opportunity to take part in playing the guitar, bass, keyboard and drums, as well as singing. We have recently had our first session and would like to share some of the exciting things we took part in!

Term 2

English

Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed our World War 1 topic this term. We have done lots of Cross-curricular working: linking History, PSHE and English together. Following anti-bullying week, we looked at the life of Walter Tull and the reasoning behind him not receiving a Military Cross. We then wrote letters to Ben Wallace (The Secretary State of the Armed Forces) regarding this matter. Fingers crossed we will receive a response soon!

Maths

This term, we have begun looking at data – we started off our topic by creating bar charts and pictograms. We thought carefully about the use of scales and creating a key. Take a look at some of our great work below!

Term 1

 

We have had a fantastic start to the term in Year 6! We have really enjoyed our English lessons, where we have had a focus on ‘The Savage’. Our work on tension writing has been incredible and we have made our new teacher so proud. This terms science topic is ‘Evolution and Inheritance’. We have already looked at genes, fossils and natural selection. Take a look at some of the pictures from our recent experiment. We had so much fun testing out beak sizes with sweets!
