Year 6 had an introductory assembly about their new exciting venture. Film week plans are beginning, with story mapping and script writing taking place next week.
In maths, we used the skipping ropes on the field to create shapes which have parallel and perpendicular lines!
After learning and singing ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’ in Mandarin, we had to write the body part words in Mandarin and place them on our friend’s body correctly
This week we started our habitat diorama projects. Our first task was to create the background and our creatures. We enjoyed exploring the different materials available. Next week, we are going to create moving parts for our dioramas and share them with Year 5.
As part of our ‘Light and Dark’ topic, we investigated how to create simple series circuits to light a bulb. We then challenged ourselves to find out what happens if more bulbs or wires are added to the circuit.
In PE his week, we combined all of the skills we have been learning in order to play a game similar to basketball. We used chest, shoulder and bounce passes to work as a team and practised our dribbling skills too. Game on!
A fascinating afternoon of dissecting flowers in science. We identified flower parts and discussed their function.
In geography this week, we investigated places around the world that it stays light or dark for weeks at a time. We played a game of country bingo to see which team could find the different countries in an atlas. Our favourite was Iceland because of the Northern Lights and huskies!
This week, we have been learning about perpendicular and parallel lines. What better way to learn than to make them ourselves! We challenged ourselves to create 2D shapes that have both kinds of lines in them. What shapes can you think of?
