Miss Barber, Mrs Sanders, Mr Pusey, Mrs Whiston and Mrs Youngson welcome you to the Year 6 page. Here you will find useful information about what is happening in Year 6 and some helpful tools to assist you in your learning.
Spring Topic: Gallery Rebels
For our Stunning Start, we took a virtual tour of The National Gallery in London. Our main task was to navigate our way around the different gallery rooms and find eight paintings. For each painting found, we had to: locate its position in the gallery; find its title; the name of the artist; the date it was painted as well as up to three additional facts about the painting. We had great fun!
We have been learning about the colour wheel and the three main colour categories: primary,
secondary and tertiary. We have been experimenting with mixing and blending colours to try and
create our own versions of the colour wheel.
#ThankYou100 Remembrance Work
Year 6 spent the final week of half term focusing on the centenary of the First World War. We are proud to share our appreciation for the countless people who helped, from soldiers to Girl Guides. Across the year group, we have written poems and letters of thanks to show our gratitude and commemorate those who dedicated their lives to the war effort. We also created artwork, focusing on perspective and composition, using watercolours and pastels.
Hola Mexico! We will begin by experiencing a Mexican-style festival including opportunities to experience traditional customs. During the topic, the children will learn about: Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebration; the differences between life in Mexico and the UK; the geographical features of Mexico’s Chihuahuan desert; traditional legends, writing glyphs and the ancient Maya Gods & Goddesses. Our topic will provide plenty of opportunities to develop our Year 6 art, music, drama, history and geography skills.
