Geography Project: Should Animals Be Kept In Zoos?
For our geography project, we have been writing balanced argument about whether or not animals should be kept in a zoo. We have been learning about different biomes and compared them to Britain's biome. We also went to the zoo and did some data analysis about the animals that live there.
Making Pasties 28.01.19 - 15.02.19
For our Spring Term DT project, Year 6 made pasties that would have been suitable for a poor Tudor to enjoy. They had to research Tudor food before sampling a pasty and designing their own. They then made shortcrust pastry and filled it with different vegetables. At the end of the topic, the children tasted and evaluated what they had made.
Tudor World Trip 10.01.19
We went on a trip to Tudor World to learn more about Shakespeare and the Tudor Theatre. We did three workshops in the morning and looked around the Tudor World museum before going on a walk around Stratford-Upon-Avon with Shakespeare himself! We saw the house where Shakespeare grew up, the Church he's buried in and learnt lots about his life. We are going to use this information to write some biographies about him in our English lessons.
Lights, Camera, Action Immersion Days 07.01.19 & 08.01.19
To start our new Lights, Camera, Action topic, the children created, wrote and performed their own mini movies. Here are some of the pictures from over the two days.
Natural History Museum Trip 18.09.18
On Tuesday 18th September, we went on a school trip to the Natural History Museum to attend a workshop about volcanoes and earthquakes. After the workshop, we looked around at some of the exhibits. It was a great trip and we learnt lots more about our Natural Disasters topic.
Immersion Days 04.09.18 and 05.09.18
For our first two days of year 6, we did some immersion activities to do with our new "Conflict: Natural Disasters" topic. We imagined that there was an imminent volcanic eruption and had to design an emergency kit and conduct some research into volcanoes. On the second day, we created our own volcanoes and made them erupt using mentos and coke. We had to "evacuate" to high ground on the playground and create our own flags to try and get people to rescue us. It was great fun!
Transition Week 16.07.18
To start off transition week, we played a "getting to know you" game outside using the giant Jenga! On each piece of Jenga, there was a question that had to be answered about ourselves. It was quite tricky to keep the tower standing - it fell over about 5 times by the time we got round to everyone!
