What a fantastic first term! Since the beginning of the year, our Y6 pupils have impressed us with their attitudes, enthusiasm and engagement in all of their learning.
The beginning of Autumn 2 was very exciting: we went on a 3-day residential to Thornbridge Outdoors, participated in our annual Lantern Parade on Bonfire Night, and we received our brand new art sketch books! We have loved developing our drawing skills, focusing on mark making, creating texture and 3D shapes, and are extremely proud of our sketch books. We are looking forward to developing our skills further next term, ready for our final Lowry-inspired piece.
Our WW2 learning has continued this half term, and we have enjoyed researching how women were affected during and after the war in our local area. We have also learnt more about the evacuation in Britain during this time and have produced a narrative, drawing on our core text (Goodnight Mr Tom) for inspiration, as well as some beautiful double-page information texts. We are making great progress in writing and have developed our understanding of different sentence types and the effect of these on the reader.
We have also really enjoyed our science learning this half term. We have learnt about Electricity, building on our prior knowledge and deepening our understanding of voltage, electrical currents and working scientifically to carry out investigations.
We are eagerly anticipating a very busy, but very enjoyable, Spring term in Year 6!
