Come and have a look at all of the exciting things we have been doing in class so far this year!
Summer Term 1
This term we have been very lucky to have a talk from the Fire Service. We learnt all about how to stay safe at home and what to do in the event of a fire.
In English, we have been writing a recount about a Scavenger Hunt that Year 6 completed on the William Allitt field.
Spring Term 2
In Science we have been learning about Living Things and their Habitats. In our lesson we learnt about the classification of living things. We then designed our own zoo, deciding where to place the animals.
During Science week we learnt about the different ocean zones. We then had to create a video to show to the rest of the school during assembly.
In Geography this term we have been learning about the Caribbean. We had to research Jamaica and then we had to present our findings to the rest of the class.
Spring Term 1
We have been very lucky to host the Living Eggs hatching in our classroom. We have seen the eggs hatch and now that the chicks are strong enough we have been learning how to handle them correctly and care for them.
In English we have been learning about Persuasive Writing. During our first lesson, we worked on presentations where we had to sell a boring object to the rest of the class.
In RE we are continuing to learn about Sikhism. This week we have been learning about the formation of the Khalsa. We read the story as a class and then in our groups we performed it to the rest of the class.
Autumn Term 2
We read the myth Theseus and the Minotaur in History. We were then challenged to create our own labyrinth for our beasts to live in using Lego.
In English this term we are writing our own Greek Myths. We have been using art to create our characters and settings.
In History we have been learning about the Ancient Greeks. This week, we had to order key events from this time period on a timeline.
Autumn Term 1
A big thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend our INSPIRE Spelling Workshop on Monday afternoon. We had lots of fun making board games to learn our spellings with.
For our Instructions topic, we have been building models of a Colosseum. We are going to be using our experiences to help us write a set of instructions later in the week.
In RE this year we are learning about Sikhism. This week we have been retelling stories of Guru Nanak using drama.
In History, we have been exploring different punishments. We were given images of different punishments and we had to predict what crime the punishment was for and in what time period it might have been used.
In Grammar, we have been revising what we already know. Here we are playing a game where we had to match the term to the definition.
In English, our first writing topic was Instructions. We linked this to our History topic of Crime and Punishment. Here we are acting out many of the gruesome punishments that existed in Tudor times.
