This week, Year 6 have been busy cooking Cheese and Tomato rolls so that they could write a set of instructions aimed at younger children. Here are some photos of what they did:
Year 6 have been learning about the Ancient Mayan civilisation in History. They have identified which modern day countries were the location of the area. They have also looked at some artefacts and considered what the evidence tells us about the time period. They placed some of the main time events chronologically on a timeline. Finally, they have identified the different groups of people in the society, reflecting on the hierarchical pyramid.
Year 6 have been discovering and developing an understanding of impressionism, through artwork by the famous artist, Monet. They have been increasing and refining their skills, by following the techniques used by this particular artist.
In science, we have been identifying the different functions that the human body carries out. We had to recreate a drawing of a human body, identifying the veins, blood vessels and heart. Here are some pictures of the fun we had!
Mrs Emmerman and Mrs Fogg have been extremely impressed with the gymnastics that have been taking place during the Year 6 PE lessons. All the pupils have been developing a number of skills, including balance, which is an essential aspect to this sport. It has been lovely to see the progression in competencies.
In Year 6, we have been designing and making puppets, using skills such as cutting, sewing and glueing. We customised the puppets by adding features such as eyes, nose, and some children added teeth. We were really pleased with our outcomes!
Year Six pupils have been developing their artistic skills, during our recent topic of perspective drawing.
They considered the technique of foreshortening, enabling them to create the illusion of a character coming towards the viewer.
This fantastic example was drawn by YamLam.
