Welcome to Year 6
Michael Carroll Alien Landscapes
We've been refining our art skills and developing our knowledge about perception and depth by creating alien landscapes in the style of Michael Carroll.
Free Verse 'Deep Space' Poetry.
Our recent writing included some top-class, philosophical, free verse poetry about the universe and its wonders as well as some interesting, deep space artwork.
We used a variety of art tools and effects to create the impression of deep space.
Strengthening Structures and Anderson Shelters
We learned how to strengthen structures and how Anderson Shelters kept British people safe during WW2.
Rationing in WW2
When learning about rationing during WW2, we decided to investigate a recipe ourselves and made some bacon and potato cakes. They were delicious!
Children in Need
We turned out school hall into a Penny Fayre for the whole school to raise money for Children in Need. In small groups, we designed, built and operated games stalls for children to play on and made it fun for them to donate for Pudsey's worthy cause.
Outdoor Maths - Circles
Armed with measure wheels and metre after metre of measuring tapes we went out into the yard to investigate the measurements of circles.
Using atlases and maps we investigated timezones across the world. If a plane leaves Japan at 12:05 AM and heads due East can it go back in time? It turns out no but the concept interested us nontheless...
As part of our learning in Science about the effects of drugs and alcohol we investigated how these substances can impair our senses using special goggles to simulate it.
Internet Safety Day
We investigated how our interests and internet use link us all together in ways we never thought possible!
NEC Futures and Digital Art
We visited NEC Futures and were lucky enough to have a special session investigating digital art and how programs can be used to create and edit images in amazing ways.
We spent the morning at SafetyWorks in Newcastle. We spent half an hour in each area learning about everything from Metro safety, First Aid, Fire emergencies to the role of the police in out communities.
