Year 6, 2021 Archived
So far this term, we have read Shackleton's Journey by William Grill and written descriptions of Antarctica:
We then read Suffragettes and the Fight for the Vote by Sarah Ridley. We wrote newspaper articles about Emily Wilding Davison's tragic death at Derby Day 1913.
In maths lessons, we have been improving our understanding of place value in numbers to ten million, and calculating using all four number operations, including learning efficient written method for long multiplication and division.
In Music, we learnt and performed the song Happy by Pharell Williams.
In RE Lessons last half term, we learnt about how Christians show their belief that Jesus is God incarnate. The children imagined what it would be like if Jesus were around today.
They learnt about the different ways that Jesus described Himself through Bible study of the book of John:
- I am the bread of life (John 6 v.35)
- I am the light of the world (John 8 v.12)
- I am the gate (John 10 v.9)
- I am the good shepherd (John 10 v.14)
- I am the resurrection (John 11 v.25)
- I am the way and the truth and the life (John 14 v.6)
- I am the true vine (Jon 15 v.1)
They interviewed Reverend Susan about her beliefs, posing a series of questions.
In Computing lessons, we made use of the new Lego Spike Prime kits to build and programme robots to carry out a series of tasks based around a rescue mission following an earthquake. The kits and lessons were funded by BAE systems and the Royal Navy.
In art lessons, we explored a range of media to create drawings of fruit and vegetables and produced portraits of Ernest Shackleton and Millicent Garrett Fawcett.
Rainbow Pledge Day
We helped to keep the village clean and tidy during our Rainbow Pledge Day.
We learnt how respect is built from our actions by building a tower of respect. We explored how making wrong choices could break down our strong foundations of trust.
