News of the week!   

Check out our slideshow below to see what we have been up to this week in Year 6: 

Monday 12th October - Friday 16th October

Featured work

This week Year 6 wrote up their evaluations to their Mayan creatures. They thought about their designs, what was good about it, what they liked about others and any improvements they can 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 posted!

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 phrase and speech as well and discovering the features of newspaper reports. Well done Year 6!

Monday 28th September - Friday 2nd October

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...

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:
