Year 6 Learning Examples

PSHCE

In PSHCE this half term, we have been looking at our network of people who are important to us, friendships, changing relationships and what to do in new social situations.  We have discussed each situation, and the students have applied their understanding to their own lives.

Our Environment

In Science the Year Sixes have been enjoying studying evolution and inheritance.  After learning about Wallace and Darwin, we went searching for specimens in our own environment!

Basketball

The Year Sixes have been focusing on basketball skills in PE.  “Passing” was a key focus for our drills this week; that coupled with fast feet, and we almost forgot about the outside temperatures!

cLAY dAY

Clay Day was a hit in Autumn 2!  We created clay heads in the style of David Shillinglaw and then painted them. 

Light

Year 6 were enthralled with the last lesson in their light unit. They looked at different coloured filters and saw what colour the new filters changed to. They filled in their own table of results and there were some surprises! Great prediction and interpreting results Year 6.  

Maths Challenge

Our Year 6 team won the Maths Challenge hosted by Coleridge Community College! Congratulations to all who took part. We are very proud of how well you worked together.

English

Hot seating a character in English allowed us to better understand their action together with various story elements. Tableaus (still poses) from the story “The Journey” by Francesca Sanna embeds some of the finer details, and allows us to include ideas in our own writing. 

Science

We used a practical investigation to help comprehend and then demonstrate how light travels in a straight line. We have used our experiences with reflecting light to create periscopes and have “reflected” on the understood law related to it. 

Maths

Here we are showing our skills with manipulatives in maths.
