ICT in Year 6

We got to try out the new laptops today in ICT! They are brilliant and meet all our needs and wants for a fun and very informative ICT lesson. This is one of our lessons on Friday mornings where we are lucky enough to explore the wider curriculum with teachers who are also experts in their field – P.E. with Mr Cumin, Music with Mr Scott and ICT with Mr Passam – what a brilliant way to end the week!

Art in Year 6

This week in Art we drew a desert landscape with a focus on perspective, giving it a 3D effect. We drew it step by step and had to make sure that we were very careful with our lines in order to add the correct amount of depth to the picture.

Year 6 trip to The Natural History Museum

Today, Year 6 visited the Natural History Museum and attended an exhibition for topic on volcanoes and earthquakes. They also got to experience what tremors of an earthquake would feel like – within the exhibition. They identified the different tectonic plates. Additionally, they saw the destruction caused by volcanoes and earthquakes of our past.

For Science, children explored the beginning of life on earth, evolution, how fossils are formed and things we learn from them.

Printing in Year 6

In Year 6 we have been exploring the work of Victorian artist William Morris. We have been mimicking his work in our sketchbooks and making our own floral and nature themed designs based on his work. Today we chose our favourite and etched it on to a piece of polystyrene to use to make multiple prints of the same design. It was lots of fun and so interesting to see how different everyones designs were!

 

Investigating Biographies

Today we compared the biographies of Anne Frank, Tom Daly, Barak Obama and Florence Nightingale. We looked at the organisational features and structural features, noting down key words or phrases we might use in our own writing. We then ranked the biographies deciding which we thought was the best and why.
