We have been working really hard in Year 6 in a range of curriculum areas. Our coding skills are really improving as we practise every week, we had a lot of fun practising our pointilism skills in art and our DT lesson linked to yeast was very interesting!
In Geography this week, the children have reported on the latest facts and figures of deforestation and understood how human behaviour impacts this. They have used a combination of scientific and geographical knowledge of the planet, climate change and deforestation to present their findings.
Take a look at 6EO's informative news reports below!
For Science, Year 6 have been investigating how children (offspring) inherit physical features from their parents. For this task, the children had to match the Year 6 teachers (Miss Hutson, Mr Cole, Miss Offlier and Mrs Jenkins) to their parents. Children had to use their knowledge of physical inheritance (hair colour, eye colour and facial features) to decide which offspring belonged to which parents.
6PC thoroughly enjoyed learning about this and it left them with a variety of questions such as: What did they inherit from their parents?
Do animals and plants also inherit physical features from their parents?

During our DT lesson talking about types of bread, the children mentioned having rainbow bread when they were in Foundation Stage. We looked up a recipe to see how it was made. Maddison chose to make some at home at the weekend (along with some bread buns). They look fabulous! Well done!
