Term 2

In Term 2, 6NF have studied Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo. Set in the fields of Devon and the WW1 battlefields of Flanders, two brothers fall for the same girl while contending with the pressures of their feudal family life, the war, and the price of courage and cowardice. This honest and hard-hitting account of life during World War I has really captured our interest and inspired our passion for reading. Come and read our diary entries based on the emotions of a main character, see how we have explored the language of the book and the effects it has on the reader and our comparison of themes across the book.

We really have dived into this hard-hitting and emotional book and it has allowed us to make huge progress with our reading. We were shocked by the ending, but it brought home the harsh realities of life at war.

Term 1

In Year 6, we have been studying Evolution and Inheritance as part of our Science topic. We have explored the theories of Charles Darwin and his explanation of Natural Selection. We undertook an investigation into different birds’ beaks and their adaptations to their food source. The study Darwin completed into the different finches on the Galapagos island was crucial to his theory and so we followed in the footsteps of this scientific giant and naturalist (whilst having a fantastic time).

 

How are different birds’ beaks adapted to their food source? How do you think they have evolved over time?
