In Year 6, we have been learning all about light! We have learnt which materials reflect light the best and how light travels. We have been applying this knowledge to an investigation where we made periscopes! Following this we have written our own detailed set of instructions on how to make a periscope!
What can you remember from our topic?
Can you tell me what the key words: opaque, translucent and transparent mean?
It was Anti-bullying week this week and in Year 6 we discussed all the different types of bullying including online bullying and what we can can do to help. In our lessons, we have created a leaflet which helps people who are being bullied and reminds them of all the strategies to help!
In maths we have been doing lots and lots of work on fraction methods and we have just finished our topic of measure!
Our next topic is on area and perimeter and we started by looking at shapes that have the same area and different perimeters and vice versa.
Can anyone think of a shape that has an area of 50cm squared?
Our new topic for this term is WW2! So far we have looked at WW1 to help us understand a little better. We’ve looked at how WW2 started, who the allies and the axis where and who some of the famous people were. We then thought of some fab questions we would like to find out about!
We have begun to look at maps of the allies and axis and which countries invaded each other. What can you remember? (I’ll give you a clue)
This term Oxford Grove have had the fabulous T-REX smiley reward where we got to see a live dinosaur in action! We learnt lots of key facts about dinosaurs, science and fossils.
Then we split off into our groups to create our own films using green screen! We had so much fun during our morning! What did you enjoy the most?
This afternoon, year 6 had their sports assembly! We took part in lots of races, had fun and our parents came to watch us!
Which race was your favourite?
In our art lessons, we have been learning all about Lowry and trying to recreate a painting in the style of him! This included matchstick figures, looking at the foreground, background and middle ground.
What have you learnt? What’s been your favourite part of the topic?
History is my favourite subject and I’ve loved teaching all about the Industrial Revolution this term! We’ve learnt so much about the inventions, inventors, timeline, factories, the cotton machines, the poverty!
What has been your favourite part to learn about? What can you recall?
