It has been another busy half term in Year 6. Please look at our learning journey to see some of the exciting and interesting learning we have been taking part in.
These pictures show us during our first trip of the year to Burnley Court. 6x visited the magistrates court and 6z went to see the Crown Court. We took part in a mock trial based around cyber bullying. On our trip, we were accompanied by Councilor Parkinson who is our chair of governors and Mrs Bullock who is another of our school governors.
Our English lessons have been based around the classic novel, Oliver Twist By Charles Dickens. We began our learning by tasting gruel which is type of watery porridge eaten by people in Victorian workhouses. We analysed the character of Bill Sykes by completing a role on the wall activity which was followed by us creating a Twitter account for the villain.
Here you can see some of our practical Math sessions from this half term. In this lesson we were rounding decimal numbers and building models.
Autumn One Learning Journey
Our first half term in Year 6 has been extremely busy. Please enjoy looking at our learning journey which shows some of our interesting and active learning.
For our Science topic, we learnt all about the circulatory system. We used a measuring cup and water to try move the same amount of liquid in 60 seconds as the heart does. We also designed and carried out our own investigations to find out how exercise alters our heart rate.
In PE, we worked with Matt the sports coach. We focused on the skills and techniques needed to take part in invasions games. During each lesson, some of us worked together to design and lead the warm up sessions.
In English we read The Unforgotten Coat by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Using this as inspiration, we researched and wrote a report all about the country of Mongolia.
Also in this half term, we learnt about endangered animals using the book Can We Save the Tiger? as our inspiration. From this we wrote persuasive speeches aimed at governments to encourage them to help endangered animals.
