Caution! Investigation in progress...

In Science this week, Year 6 have been exploring shadows. We set up an investigation to see if the shadow of a static object changes or moves throughout the day. We checked back each hour to record our observations. We also had fun creating our own shadow shapes and trying to lose our shadows! Luckily the sun was on our side!

Creating our own river...

Today, in forest school, we created our own river! We ensure that it included all of the features we have been learning about. We were so pleased that it flowed exactly as planned. We even managed to create a waterfall!

Farmer Time!

We have had a great time chatting each week to Farmer Zoe. We have really enjoyed learning all about the animals kept on her farm and how they are cared for. We couldn't believe it when she told us that one of the cows is called, Mrs Hereford!

Remembrance Day

We enjoyed creating our contributions to the school Remembrance service. We created black-out poems with some wonderful poppy-inspired art work.

Farmer Time

A while ago, we signed up to be part of the, 'Farmer Time' initiative. We were so excited this week when we found out that we have been linked with a livestock farm in Suffolk. We are really looking forward to virtually meeting the farmers, Gary and Zoe next week when we speak to them on Zoom. We cannot wait to learn all about their farm and follow their journey!

Art: Printing

We have been bust producing our own prints, based on our Mayan designs. We are so pleased with how they are turning out and are really enjoying the printing process. 

Evolution and Inheritance Non-Chronological Reports

We are so proud of our final pieces. We wrote non Chronological reports about our chosen animal. We cannot wait to share these with our parents and carers.

History: Mayan Gods

This week we have been learning about the Maya Gods. We have created some wonderful double-page spreads to show what we have learnt. Our art work and fact knowledge were particularly impressive.

Science: Animal Adaptation

In science sessions we have loved learning all about animals and how they have adapted in order to thrive in their habitats. We have made information pages to explain some adaptations that have taken place.


We have added to our reading display this week. Some children have designed imaginary reading worlds and painted them onto the display. Here are Ellen and Faith with their amazing creations.

Science: Evolution

We have had such fun exploring evolution. We carried out an experiment, using different shaped 'beaks.' These were in the form of tweezers, pegs and chopsticks. We used our beaks to pick up different berries and found that some beaks made it far easier than others.

Hard at work...

The children are really enjoying our new topics of, 'Evolution and Inheritance' and 'The Mayans.'

Here they are hard at work...
