We hope this is going to be a great year and look forward to working in close partnership with you.

Maths - Key Instant Recall Facts

Year 6 LOVE being Scientists! 

 

 

This week in Science, Year 6 have been investigating how sound travels and how different aspects and variable can change the pitch of a noise. 

Our experiment consisted of 5 bottles, all filled with a different amount of water. Once blown into, each bottle made a different pitched sound (either a flat or high pitched sound). 

I am sure your children will share the results with you!

 

The facts which the Year 6 children LOVED.... 

 

Did you know that sound travels quicker through water and solids, then it does through air? 

 

Did you know that you cannot hear anything in space? 

 

Did you know that the vibrations in the molecules cause the sound to travel?

Year 6 Scientists investigating Magnets and the Magnetic Fields...

 

Today, Year 6 have been investigating the North and South 'pole' sections of the magnets and why identical poles repel and the opposite attracts. 

We have learnt lots of facts and I am sure your children will come home and share their newly-acquired knowledge with you.

Being Artists- Year 6 have been inspired by David Hockney

 

For Art, Year 6 have become artists and have been looking into the well known artist, David Hockney. 

 

Throughout his career, David Hockney has been an important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960's and because of this, he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th Century. 

 

In discussion with the classes, it is obvious that Year 6 liked the bright colours, textures and tones that he has used, as well as the unique things and objects  within his paintings. 

 

Below are some of the pictures that we have tried to re-create!

Year 6 are being Poets

 

On Monday, Year 6 were lucky enough to spend some time with a local poet (Ian Bland) and enjoy a range of different poetry.  All children had a fantastic time, and many have found a new love of poetry. Below are some of the finished products of some children performing their poems.

We hope you are as blown away with the poems as we are!

Evacuee Freeze-frames 

 

For the past few weeks, Year 6 have been learning how to become historians and have been focusing on Evacuees of World War 2. For this learning activity, children created a freeze-frame of the evacuees saying goodbye to their parents at the train station, before leaving to the countryside . In books, children then added speech bubbles and added emotions and feelings into them.
