Come and have a look at all of the exciting things we have been doing in class so far this year!
Summer Term 1
We have then worked as teams to complete a variety of challenges linked to our theme parks. We have had to draw our parks to scale, work out the costs of running our theme parks and calculate our profit and loss.
After we had completed our SATs, we began a Maths projects called Theme Park Maths. First we had to design our dream theme park.
We then debated whether or not Year Six children should sit SATs.
This term, we have been learning all about how to hold a debate. Our first topic was "Graffiti: Vandalism or Art?"
Spring Term 2

We have been playing games in Grammar to help us learn about Subject/Verb agreement.
This week, we have been learning about different nets of 3D shapes in Maths.
In Computing this term we have been learning how to make a dressing up game using Scratch.
In Science this term we have been learning about electricity. We have been using equipment to build and test different circuits.
We have been using drama to help us develop our ideas before we start to write.
In English this term we are learning about horror stories. To start our topic, we created vocabulary banks for horror settings and horror characters.
In Maths, we have been learning all about geometry. We have been learning how to use a protractor and investigating interior angles in different shapes.
Spring Term 1
To finish the term, we have been learning about explanation texts in English. We used the OK Go music video (This Too Shall Pass) as a stimulus for our writing. After watching sections of the video many times with our partner, we then gave a verbal explanation about how the contraption worked to the rest of the class.
In Maths this term we have been learning about measures. In this lesson we were looking at time and finding the difference between two times on a 24 hour clock. We had to search around the Year 6 classrooms to find different bus stops, with each bus stop having a different time gap question.
In Science, we have been learning about the Theory of Evolution. During this lesson, we researched different scientists who had ideas about evolution.
For our writing, we were going to sell a luxury holiday to our reader. This meant looking in travel brochures to get some inspiration first. Some of us even tired to plan Miss Swain's next holiday!
We started our Persuasive writing topic by testing our selling skills. We had to sell boring objects from around the classroom to the rest of the class!
Autumn Term 2
