6K Class Work
6K's Autumn 1 Class Work
We studied events of WW2 and in particular evacuation and how this affected family life. We had an evacuation day when the children came in with their tags on and special requests from their families for their host family.
We studied the book Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian – learning lots about evacuation through the main character William who was evacuated to the countryside where he was taken in by Mr Tom.
The class were set a homework project of making an Anderson Shelter and we had a variety of styles including a cake!!
6K's Autumn 2 Class Work
We worked with Hi-Impact to dissect a lamb’s heart to help learn about the circulatory system. It taught us about the different parts of the heart.
Our class novel this half term was Holes by Louis Sachar.
The children enjoyed this book so much it became the theme for our Year 6 Assembly.
Holes also formed the theme for our Class Display.
DT week was held during Autumn 2 and the children had to design, plan and make an electric powered vehicle. We used construction kits to investigate and then worked with partners to try and make a vehicle that moved by electricity.
6K's Spring 1 Class Work
We used world, localised maps and Google Earth to identify sites where the Ancient Maya civilisations settled. During this topic we looked at how important religion was to them and designed our own Maya Gods
We discussed the legacies that the Maya left behind such as calendars, writing, astrology and their number system.
6K's Spring 2 Class Work
We are currently studying the novel Wonder by R J Palacio. It is making us all think about how we treat other people, particularly as we will be starting a new school soon, just like Auggie the main character.
We are currently busy writing speeches using emotive language trying to express why we should all be accepting of others. We will perform our speeches for each other and some will be posted here soon!!
