Year 6

Autumn Term

We have been learning about explorers and how important it is to be curious. Lots of us went to Wales for our residential, where we climbed mountains, went in mines, walked along gorges and many more exciting activities! When back in school, the children continued to learn about explorers such as Darwin and Shackleton. 

We also learnt about World War 2 and wrote some persuasive speeches linked to this. The children looked into the impact the war had on different people and they took part in a drama workshop to learn more about wartime life.

Spring Term

This term the children have been learning about monarch, with the question 'Should Britain still have a monarch?'. We have been debating the importance of a King or Queen and how our country is run. Within this learning adventure, the children have created royal portraits of themselves in Art, learning about historic monarchs and our new monarch, across the Tudor, Victorian and previous historical times. In Music, they were performing their own fanfare.

We then had another learning adventure, which was 'Do our hearts make us who we are?' where the children were learning about xenotransplantation. There were dicscussions around the ethics of this, and the children used the book Pig Heart Boy to support their opinions about this. We also made fake blood and learnt about the circulatory system, and wrote some lovely explanation texts related to this. The children took part in different science experiments, like using skittles to demonstrate diffusion.

Throughout the term, the children have written an explanation text about the circulatory system, a balanced argument about xenotransplantation and a character description linked to the book Oliver Twist. In Maths, the children have been learning about fractions, decimals and percentages, shape and interpreting data. We had a great time being rockstars for Maths Days, celebrating practising our times tables using Times Table Rockstars too!

We also had Fusion, where our local youth club worked with the children and developed their teamwork, through challenges like making towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows, and they began learning sign language too.
