This week we have been adding imagery to our poems as part of our film-making unit in ICT. We selected images for each of our lines in our poems and then put them together using imovie. We then added text and some of us even recorded our sound. We had to do this in pairs so more of us need to complete this. Keep posted for more examples of excellent war poetry in film!

This week we have been discussing Remembrance Day and have thought about life in WW1. We have worked really hard on our war poetry in order to put an e-service together for the rest of the school next week. Above is the artwork backgrounds that we have created to display our writing but we are still working on our poems and hope to share these with you next week. We have also been learning a song to go alongside this work so keep an eye out for our e-service!


Below are some of our write ups we did before half term of our creature descriptions.  Can you spot some of the grammatical features we have been working on in class?

Monday 19th October - Friday 23rd October

Featured work

This week has been a little unusual with some of us being at home so we decided to show you some picture of our Mayan God clay tiles. We have discovered a few of the Mayan gods and understand that they had both a good and a bad side. We tried to represent them in clay. 

Monday 12th October - Friday 16th October

Featured work

This week Year 6 wrote up their evaluations of their Mayan creatures. They thought about their designs, what was good about it, what they liked about others and any improvements they could make. 

We have also been learning about evolution and how we know creatures have evolved. We looked at fossils this week and thought about how they have been created. We produced some writing and also made our own versions (you can see this in the slideshow above). Here are some of the finished products. Next week we will add some paint to protect them and show some more photos - so keep a look out!

Monday 5th October - Friday 9th October

Featured work

This week Year 6 wrote up their Pok-a-Tok (Mayan football) newspaper reports and they were amazing! The children watched a film clip from The Road to El Dorado and pretended they were audience members watching the gods play a match. They have explored using adverbial phrases and speech as well and discovering the features of newspaper reports. Well done Year 6!

Monday 28th September - Friday 2nd October 

Featured work

This week Year 6 made some amazing Mayan creatures. They had to design a creature that would adapt to the Mayan environment (Central America), have a good solid structure and have a working pneumatics systems to add movement to the creatures. Check our galleria of images...

Featured work

Year 6 have started the term so well and have enjoyed discussing the text 'The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse.' We have discussed the 4 themes of:

Love, Bravery, Friendship and Kindness.

They listened to the story and took away one quote they thought summed up their chosen quality and created an amazing piece of art to represent this. Have a look at our photos below:
