Mrs Wilkes' Maths Set + friends: On the last day of term, Mrs Elwell and Mrs Wilkes' Maths sets were lucky enough to make pancakes as a fun way to learn about ratio. They all had a fab time while also reinforcing a tricky maths concept and enjoyed eating their delicious pancakes!

Recently, Year 6 welcomed our parents for a fantastic art lesson.  This was the first lesson where we investigated Maya artwork, patterns and symbols; the children and parents had a lovely time trying out the different techniques in our sketch books.

Our science topic this term is based on the circulatory system and learning how it transports oxygen, water and nutrients around our bodies through the blood.  In order to get to grips with how water and nutrients are absorbed into the blood stream, we had a very messy but very fun lesson recreating the digestive system, from mouth to the "end".

 As part of our Down with Darwin topic and D&T, the children have designed and printed their own Darwin-themed t-shirts. We have been blown away by the creativity and artistic skills shown by the children! The children were able to model their t-shirts for the whole school during a recent assembly.

Year 6 had a wonderful festive morning creating some stunning pieces of winter art.  Children used water colours to create some beautiful backgrounds and then created some fabulous trees to complete their work. I'm sure you will agree that the final pieces are magnificent!

Our wonderful team of Gonk Makers in Year 6 have been working hard, in their spare time, to make Christmas gonks. They then sold these to raise money for our Dementia Friends charity which our school council are supporting.  
We are thrilled with the amount of money they made, this amount was then matched by a member of the HSA bringing the total to £200! 
The money has enabled us to buy some specialist gifts to support people living with dementia and alzheimers  in our local community. We have sent these gifts to three local care homes. Well done Gonk Makers - we are incredibly proud of all of your hard work and you should be proud of yourselves too!

As part of our Down with Darwin topic theme, we made our own fossils out of Plaster of Paris. We then used these to write a set of instructions in our English sets. I'm sure you'll agree they look very realistic! They would fool Alan Grant himself.

Hexagonal Work
Year 6 have really been enjoying their artwork this term. They have been developing their shading techniques to create different parts of an animal. We also had a magnified look at part of a Galapagos animal. We talked about how stroke direction can alter the effect and the importance of blending colours to create the correct tone. Can you guess which animal these are from?

Year 6 Residential

Year 6 went on their residential to Frank Chapman from Monday 15th May to Friday 19th May. A fantastic time was had by all - you could tell by how tired they all looked when they go back - including the staff!
