Summer Term 2019

This week we have been supporting Y1 with their science work. We helped them plan and carry out an investigation to find out which paper aeroplane travelled the furthest.

We investigated how the beaks of finches have adapted to suit the enviroment where they live. It was decided blunt beaks would be better for eating seeds.

This half term in Art we have been exploring pattern and shape. We created these colourful tessellations.

A big thank you to Mason's mum for the yummy cakes and Rhys's grandparents for the chocolates. They were greatly appreciated!

Tucking in to our delicious SATs breakfast!

We went on a Treasure Hunt in Bramblebank Wood. A series of grammar and punctuation related questions were hidden amongst the trees, which we had to answer. It was great fun and demonstrated our good understanding of grammatical terminology.

Welcome back!
This is a busy term in Y6, as we are preparing for our SAT tests in May, beginning our transition to secondary school and performing in our production 'Edith's Wartime Memories.' 
In English we will be reading a range of non-fiction texts about Charles Darwin. Also, we will be writing letters, diaries and reports from the viewpoint of Darwin.

In maths we will be revising: fractions, decimals and percentages; using standard methods to add, subtract, multiply and divide; properties of shape; converting units of measurement and problem solving.

Trip to The Deep

Maths trails we made with YR and Y1

Miss Tyson challenged us to get into teams and create information posters explaining what fossils are, how they are formed and who Mary Anning was. These are the results:

Entry Point

Life on Earth

This term our IPC topic is called Life on Earth.

The Big Idea

First there was the big bang! Then life began on Earth 3.8 billion years ago. But when did humans arrive and where did we come from? How do different parts of your body function and how are humans different from other animals? If we can find out the answer to these questions perhaps we can figure out where we are heading in the future…

In Science, we’ll be finding out:

  • How life began in the sea then came out of the sea
  • How fossils provide information about living things from the past
  • Why the dinosaurs died out
  • About the classification of plants and animals
  • How plants and animals reproduce
  • How living things evolve and change over time
  • How humans are different from other animals
  • About the brain, nervous system, bones and muscles in your body
  • How plants and animals are adapted to their environment
  • How adaptation leads to evolution
  • Whether there is life on other planets

In Technology we’ll be finding out:

  • What foods early humans ate, grew and cooked
  • About prehistoric food and cooking techniques
  • How to prepare a healthy meal

In International, we’ll be finding out:

  • How superbugs evolve and spread around the world
  • How we can improve the health of the world's children
  • Why we should prevent species extinction
