AUTUMN 2

This half term, we have written biographies about some inspiring famous people and are now studying Romeo and Juliet! The learners have really enjoyed acting out some of the scenes and writing in role as the different characters. 

Our History unit has been all about the Ancient Greeks and we were really fortunate to take part in a workshop run by the brilliant Past Productions. During the day, we learnt about some of the Greek Gods, performed some Greek plays, created some Greek plates and took part in a few Olympic events!

Check out some of the outcomes:

AUTUMN 1

We have had a great Autumn term so far with the learners really meeting the extra demands that Year 6 brings with it.  We have been fortunate to have visits from the police and Paul Sturgiss (the world's tallest basketballer) as well as an online session with author Burhana Islam

who recently won the Fantastic Book Award.

In Geography, we ended our topic by researching how humans are having a negative impact on the environment but more importantly what we can do to change this. Some of the posters we created are below.

                                         

 

In art, we finished our unit where we used the grid method to enlarge, reduce and distort image whilst maintaining perspective. Our final piece was based on Bradford-born artist David Hockney's artwork and the end results were absolutely stunning as you can see in the photo below!

We have recently introduced Knowledge Organisers for our science and geography topics. Knowledge Organisers are a really visual way of representing all the key concepts that the learners will encounter during each unit and can be used to pre-learn areas or as a retrieval tool after we have covered parts in class. 

Attached below are the Knowledge Organisers we have introduced so far for you to download. They have also been uploaded to Google Classroom.
