Banana bread baking!

In our D.T lessons we learned how to make banana bread. It was delicious!

Airport hook!

As part of our whole school hook, Year 6 went on a "flight" to Jamaica! We took our passports and boarding cards through security, had our bodies scanned, put our suitcases through the bag scanner and enjoyed some in-flight refreshments. When we got back to our classroom, we made some tropical fruit juice by cutting up various exotic fruits.

This half-term, our text map is a non-chronological report about Jamaica! We will then go on to write our own report about a different Caribbean island.

History day!

In Year 6, our history day was all about the Stone Age. We did all sorts of fun activities, including: face-painting, making our own paintbrush, creating cave paintings, watching a theatrical production called ‘Prehistoric Park’ and completing linking quiz sheets, turning the playground into a Stone Age cave using chalks, creating a paper woolly mammoth and more!

Science catch-up day!

Year 6 spent the day covering objectives they missed in Year 5 due to lockdown. These included: demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes; explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials (i.e. ash); and describe the changes as humans develop to old age.

Stupendous Shelters!

We have been reading 'Holes' by Louis Sacher as our class reader this half-term. We have immensely enjoyed reading the book and meeting all of the characters, like Stanley and Zero. In the novel, the children live and work in a desert-like area called Camp Green Lake. For our DT learning, we had to design and make a shelter for this habitat, using materials from the scrap shed. We split in to two teams and had to select materials that were appropriate for the job, as well as figuring out how to join them together while working as a team. Who do you think built the most effective shelter?

Glockenspiel grime?

In our Music lessons, we learned how to play 'Blinded By Your Grace Part 2' by Stormzy on the glockenspiel and chime bars. Here is a short clip of us playing the song.

Maths is fun!

We've really been enjoying doing our Maths work this half-term, especially our work on volume. Here are some photos of us using linking cubes to create cubes and cuboids with particular volumes as part of our A task.

Creative collage!

In Spring 2, we made collages inspired by William Morris. We used digital photography to create our collages.
