As part of our Year 6 Geography work, we’ve been studying Biomes. These are specific environmental regions around our planet, but they have very different conditions. This work shows how we created information posters to compare and contrast the geographical locations and features of these differing Biomes.
The children have learned a lot this year about the world and they can’t wait to learn all about Temperate Deserts!
6PC, 6TF, 6EM and 6JD all showed their support for charity by wearing red!
Fun was had all round!
This week, 6PC, 6EM , 6JD and 6TF have ALL been learning about the famous and highly well-known artist 'Gerhard Richter'.
Year 6 have been looking at his painting techniques and how he uses 'layering'to create some amazing artwork.
We have all been inspired by the high standard of work, and have decided to give it a go!
Below is the work in progress! We can't wait to see the final masterpieces!
Today for Maths Day, Year 6 have taken part in a fun Maths activity (which you may already know!) called Battleships.
This, however, is a slight twist compared to the board game! This task, saw Year 6 destroying each others 'battleships' and using an 'X' axis and a 'Y axis' with both positive and negative numbers.
The children loved this activity!
This week, 6PC have been investigating, comparing and contrasting the Rainforest biome with other biomes across the world (Tundra, Grassland, Aquatic etc).

Year 6 having been reading and answering questions on the their latest BUG Club book 'Risks and Thrills'. Within this book, there is a variety of mini stories, poems and information documents. This week, we have been looking at the spooky short story of The Red Lady which sees a mysterious lady whom is wearing red garments, saves a sailor from his doom of a sinking ship. Afterwards, she weirdly disappears!
The children were asked to draw the beach where the events happened by only using the description from the text!
This half term, Year 6 are looking at the famous artist of Alberto Giacometti who is famous for his sculptures. The children have learned that Giacometti used to create his designs in an unique way- the limbs, arms and legs are longer than usual!
