6MS 2018/19

Welcome to the Spring Term

This half term out topic is Japan.

In English we have been reading Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger . We have written lots of formal texts and made our own Yoda.

We wrote poems about Japanese Cherry Blossom and made fans depicting it.

Using Origami, we made some Japanese ladies.

After learning about mountains and volcanoes in Japan we made relief maps from salt dough.

In science we have been exploring electricity.

A road safety workshop reminded us to always be alert.

We enjoyed a Sushi workshop.

We dressed up foe World Book Day and took part in a book swap.

 

During science week we made our own Lava lamps.

We used clay to make Kokeshi dolls. The decoration needed a steady hand!

Our model rickshaws all have their own personalities!

Lino printing was a new experience- thankfully not too many plasters were required.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to 6 MS

For the second half of the autumn term our topic is the Ancient Maya.

We made mosaic masks.

Our Mayan murals look very modern!

Weaving God’s Eyes was difficult to begin with but we stuck at it.

Some great models were made for homework.

Now Press Play led us on a Mayan adventure.

Cooking Mayan Chocolate Chilli Truffles was a sticky business!

Our class assembly was based on ‘The Arrival’ by Shaun Tan

In science we have been learning about inheritance and adaptation . We used the nature garden to look at why bright coloured worms would not survive and set up an experiment to find out which beak would be best for different foods.

Finally we had a party to celebrate the end of a busy term.

Have a good break and see you all in January!

 

We started the year with an art project. The theme is animals. We look forward to seeing you at the forthcoming exhibition.

 

Our topic is Ancient Greece. We started work straight away , using the atlas to investigate the geography of the country. We also visited The British Museum to examine artefacts. We learnt a lot about  daily life  in ancient Greece and the stories told in myths.

We have done a lot of work!

A wonderful Trojan horse complete with a hidden door in the base was made for homework.

In computing we thought about how to stay safe on-line. When publishing poems about Greek mythological creatures we learn how to put an image in the background.

 

In science we visited the nature garden to measure the light levels in different areas. Through the year we will investigate the relationship between the amount of light and plant growth.

We have been using our Light topic to practice working with variables.

In PE we have been developing our ball skills and tactics through basketball.

In RE we have been looking at Holy Books

To celebrate the end of our Ancient Greeks topic we had a Greek day! We baked Greek biscuits and tasted a range of Greek foods.

We also designed and made a Greek Sandal.

For Big Draw we listened to some disco music and drew each other in dance poses. The silhouettes were then stuck onto a  background of collaborative mark-making.
