This term, we have been reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. The story has inspired lots of our work, including diary entries, maps and artwork (inspired by Hokusai). We have also been learning about orangutans and the threat posed to them by palm oil plantations.
Children in KS2 have been thinking about ‘connections’. After learning about and creating the sounds of the London Underground, we created poems using metaphor and presented them in the style of a tube map. Inspired by Banksy, we created artwork with a message; encouraging people to connect in person and with the outdoors, instead of through screens!
As part of our travel themed topics, 3/4P, 4/5SL and 6J joined together to celebrate all things aeronautical. We learnt about the history of flight, investigated the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and created loop gliders, investigating which would fly the furthest. Finally, we collaborated on a Da Vinci inspired flying machine mural! Take a look…
This term, Year 6 have been busy learning about the world of animals. We’ve designed our own Safari Parks and written poetry based on the book ‘The Lost Words’.
Whilst learning about habitats and adaptation, we’ve had the chance to look after five dragon eggs! We’ve learnt about habitats around the world and how animals adapt for the winter months.
As part of our work on the book ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner, we used Lego WeDo to create our own moving froglets 🐸.
Welcome back to a new year in Year 6!
This term our topic is ‘Roll Out The Red Carpet’. This topic is all about Kings and Queens, life in Tudor times and film making!
To start the Autumn Term, we have been focusing on the book ‘The BFG’ as part of a whole school project. We have created ‘Dream Jar’ poetry and written incredible character descriptions about The BFG.
We have also used the book as inspiration for Rich Tasks. We’ve used our numeracy skills to design our own Giant Country and to draw and measure life sized giants!
