Year 6

Class Showcase

Click the picture to see what year 6 have been learning this academic year.

We are working on.....

Our topic this term is  'British Breakthroughs and International Inventions'.

This term the children will have the opportunity to be incredibly creative through our exciting topic. We will explore the development of clocks, linking this closely with our English text and the children will have the opportunity to make their own. We will also be looking at the development of photography where the children will create their own pinhole cameras and will have the opportunity to use a photography kit to develop their own photos. Our learning will be further developed by our trip to the Science Museum next term.

Astronaut Guides to the Solar System

We have been using the app MSQRD to generate images of ourselves as astronauts! We added these to our 'Astronaut guides to the Solar System' which we researched and created on a handy keyring! Here are some pictures of our images and our guides.

Monday 30th October - Friday 3rd November.

 This week, all the classes have been looking at art projects because its creativity week. Through the week Mrs Hillier took six people out to do silk painting.On Monday, Mrs Philpot explained In Assembly that this week we were looking at a painting called Coq Rouge Dans la Nuit by Marc Chagall, then after assembly we had to get marble ink and put one drop into the water so it would make an affect on the painting .On Tuesday, we flipped the painting over,then we sketched and coloured it. The next day, year 6 got the laptops and went on Revoulution Art Junior, then we had a go at making our characters from the painting. On Thursday, we planned our review based on the picture. On Friday, we wrote up our own review about Coq Rouge Dans la Nuit. We then re-created the picture from the painting so we could glue it onto our marble picture.
