Well done to our Stars of the Week - Ewan and Joseph.
We have been blown away by the fantastic home learning our year 6s have shared with us this week. Well done to you all. Here is a sample of some of the stunning work we have received:
Welcome to our Year 6 page.
In the Autumn term we have been studying WW2. This has included creating comparative timelines of events leading to the outbreak of war, from the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 to rationing ending in 1954.
Our core texts this term have been Goodnight Mr. Tom and Once.
In writing, the children are writing a variety of genres and for different audiences and purposes. They have written poetry based on the blitz; sarcastic film reviews based on the film version of Goodnight Mr. Tom; persuasive letters to local companies and much more. Between half-term and Christmas, children will be working a chapter continuation linked to our core text.
Here are so examples of our work so far:
In science, children have been investigating the circulatory system. They have planned and conducted experiments about heart rates and exercise; made models of the circulatory system and heart and are building up to dissecting a pig's heart on 20th November.
In history, we have looked at many of the key moments and turning points in WW2. Soon, we will be enjoying a visit from local Historian, Andy Armstrong, to look at what life was like for bomber crew during WW2.
Here are some more examples of work linked to our topic:
In computing, we have started building websites based on WW2 using the web based software, Weebly.
