This half term, we took part in the Level 2 Bikeability, learning about how to ride safely on the roads. We also showcased our learning in our Year 6 class assembly. We’ve only been in Year 6 for half a term, but there was so much to share.
In science we have been learning about the classification of living things. We found out about the work of Carl Linneaus and his classification system which is still used today. We used classification keys to identify different species before creating our own classification key.
Our history unit this term explored what life was like during Victorian times using the census to make inferences about people from the past. In English, we read Oliver Twist and learned more about rich and poor lives during this period. We learned about the author Charles Dickens and read ‘A Christmas Carol’ exploring how Ebeneezer Scrooge’s character changes throughout the story.
In D&T, we have been investigating ‘Grab and Go’ products. We tasted a range of products and learned about the nutritional value of each. We followed a recipe to make Spring Rolls and evaluated the product. Finally, we designed our own Grab and Go product.
In maths, we have been working hard to learn how to calculate with fractions using all four operations.
In RE, we explored the concept of incarnation and the big question “Was Jesus the Messiah?” We learned about how Christians put their beliefs about Jesus’ incarnation into practice in different ways to celebrate Christmas and continue to spread God’s light.
Finally, we visited St Peter’s Church and had the opportunity to both share our learning and ask Reverend Jonathan questions.
