WOODLANDS with a Mayan theme

Today, we explored our Ancient Mayan topic outside of the classroom.  We used natural resources to create a headdress and even crowned a few queens.  Added to that, we made some miniature Mayan temples and houses.

 

The woodland site has changed quite a lot recently so we created some designs of what we would like to it be like in the future. 

 

Of course, it wouldn't be us if we didn't have a crazy moment - the 'Maya-Maya' Slide, to the tune of a popular song that you may know.

ENGLISH & DRAMA

As part of the classic fiction unit in English, Year 6 have been learning about Rudyard Kipling and his use of animal characters.  To help us with our dialogue and punctuation learning, we decided to act out small but humorous conflict scenes.

Pigeons and bread.

MORE MESSY SCIENCE

In Year 6, we have been learning about blood...so why not make some?

 

We used a variety of food and kitchen products to symbolize the different components then mad some of the red stuff.

 

Practical activities really do help our learning and, above all, it's FUN!

 

Keep posted for more gory activities in Year 6.

YEAR 6 HAVE A NUMBER 2

In science, we have been learning about the human body and this week we looked at the digestive system. 

 

Learning from books and websites is fine but the children really engage when the lesson is practical.  So we decided to make our own 'model' of the digestive system from food entering the mouth, right through to... well... you know what at the other end. 

 

Well, that's one thing the children never thought they'd do in lessons!

We said that it might be a bit gory...

NUTTY KNITTERS

Today we had a visit from the Nutty Knitters as part of an ongoing WWI project.

 

The children had taster sessions in knitting and crocheting.  It was a real challenge but the children loved it and begged for more. 

 

Keep your eyes peeled for future knitting and poppy based activities...

TRAIN PROJECT: October 2017

Well, when you set a homework project about a topic that we are going to study in class, you're not too sure what the results will be...  

I needn't have worried as the children from this amazing class have produced some truly wonderful pieces of work.  Artwork, models, cakes (Yum, yum!), research, posters and even remote control trains were brought in and boy were we impressed.

I would like to pass on my thanks to all of the parents, grandparents, other family members and friends who have supported the children as your efforts really do make a difference.

Thank the stars that I have such an awesome class!!!!!!!!!

A selection of photographs from the children's fabulous work.

Here are a selection of our photos from our trip to the Nature Reserve. We started off with a health check the area, talking about what we liked and suggesting improvements. Then we enjoyed a lot of problem solving and creative activities using sticks, leaves and other natural items.

Throughout the year, we will be learning about Shakespeare's play 'The Tempest' through the medium of music.  Here is a first attempt.  Who said learning isn't fun?
