Year 6 pupils in school had a go at photography around the school grounds.  The topic was Winter Colour and we experimented with angle, composition, perspective, zoom and focus. Ollie braved the bitter cold in his shorts as the perfect model!

 

In - school year 6 made Mindfulness Butterfly Mobiles on No Screen Day and tested their Drop Rides. I'd like to say no eggy passengers were harmed during filming, but....

Some examples of art, PSHE, algebra, French and wellbeing from week 6 are below.  Look on the Science page to see examples of our work on buoyancy.

This week saw the final paragraphs and editing of our stories based on the short film, The Little Boat, on Literacy Shed.  We had some excellent final versions, with great description. Some examples are below.

We've had some excellent videos on gears and pulleys this week -week 3.  please keep sending them in!

Watch the first 3 videos in order, to see how gears effect speed.

Connor's excellent pulley.  We had a lot of photos of pulleys but Connor's video shows clearly how a pulley works.

Ffion doing her air resistance investigation, looking at how the size of the parachute canopy affects the speed it falls. 

Here are some more examples of work from week 2 of lock down

There were some very interesting pendulum investigation write ups and results.

What are we learning?

HOLA MEXICO!

PRACTICAL FRACTIONS

We were given flour, water, string, £1, counters and paper and were asked to find a half, quarter and tenth of each item.  We had to think about appropriate equipment to use and have to get equal parts.

CREATION STORIES

We have been learning about and comparing creation stories from different religions and cultures.  We began by creating freeze frames to retell to Judeo-Christian creation story.

MEXICAN MUSIC

We listed to the Mexican Hat Dance and then used graphic scores to represent each instrument.  

MEXICAN FOOD TASTING

We sampled a range of Mexican food and commented on the appearance, smell, taste and texture, before ranking it out of 10.

AGUAS FRESCAS

We chopped and blended fruit to make this popular Mexican drink.

KITES

We made traditional kites that are made to celebrate the lives of the dead.  Some people believe that the kites provide a link between the lands of the living and the dead.

DAY Of THE DEAD

We launched our new topic with a Day of the dead celebration.

BLOOD HEART

HISTORY OF MEDICINE TIMELINE

We researched the key events in the history of hear medicine and placed them into chronological order to create a timeline. 

BALANCED DIETS

We learnt about how to keep our hearts healthy by eating a balanced diet.  We looked at the 'eatwell' plate and discussed the different food groups. 

HEART DISSECTION

To launch our new topic, we had the opportunity to dissect a pig's heart in order to find out about the different parts of the heart.  We used pigs' hearts as they are the closest to a human heart of those available to us for dissection.  We syringed water into the blood vessels and watched where it went, as well as cutting cross sections through the heart to study the four chambers.

METRE AND PULSE

To link with our topic, in our music lessons, we learnt how to tap the pulse or beat in a piece of music.  We also learnt to mark the metre of a range of different pieces - in 2, 3 and 4 time.  We then learnt and performed a rap about the heart and added body percussion to our performances.

RAINBOWS

We took part in a whole school project to create a rainbow when we returned to school.  We began by learning new stitches by sewing Binka bookmarks before creating our own patches for the rainbow.  we used a range of stitches and sewed on embellishments such as buttons, sequins and patches.
