In Year 6 our Butterflies are growing beautifully in the pupa/chrysalis. The chrysalis is a hard shell that caterpillars form as an outer layer of protection while it turns into a butterfly.. We cannot wait to see the next stage!

Monday 21st March: Today we looked at Invasion- Hockey. We had to think about changing tactics and how to be the best attacker.

World Book Day: We celebrated in style with our whole Year 6 theme of ' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' great effort made by all!

Spring 1 'Pandora' Parent Quest Letter.

R.E. Key Question: how have we developed our key ideas arising from our study of Genesis 1? How and why are these helpful or inspiring or not? Today we looked at the difference between religious questioning and scientific. We decided that it is okay to believe in all theories in relation to creation of the world.

Science- Skill: to plan a scientific enquiry to answer questions and use it to test results. In this lesson we had to use a light source and an object to see how the shape changes.

History- Key Question: How can we tell what lives were like in Ancient Greece by looking at artefacts? Today we travelled back in time to an Ancient Greek market. We had to look at many primary and secondary sources to see if we could tell what they were used for and what it would be like.

In today's History lesson (links to Geography) we had to answer the Key Question: Who were the Ancient Greeks? We had to create a timeline, find Sparta and Athens on a map and use Koinonia to work well together.

Autumn 2 'Fallen Fields' parent quest letter.

15.11.21 Skill: to create a matching mini sequence using apparatus. Today we recapped our mirroring and matching skills, we then used those to create a sequence using; canon; unison and mirroring techniques.

This half term we are learning about World War 2. We have started out history lessons creating the timeline of WW2 and researching facts about the war. These facts will help us to write a non-chronological report about the war in English lessons.

In Science, children were learning about different components of blood including red cells, white cells, platelets and plasma and during 'Blood investigation' they were able to create 'blood'.

Team work is very important in year 6. We were working together in RSHE lessons and learning about the importance of well-being finding solutions how to keep our physical and mental health well and strong.
