Year 6 completed a science experiment to explore the effect that fatty deposits have on blood flow. They concluded that the more fatty deposit build up there is in a person’s blood vessels, the harder it would be for the blood to flow through.
Year 6 were set a homework task over the half term to create a treasure map. This was a task set f9llowing on from their recent geography lessons. Their map was required to demonstrate the different elements of maps that they have learnt. For example, map symbols, a key and grid references. Below you can see just a selection of the amazing pieces that were created!
Year 6 have really been enjoying their geography lessons. In today’s lesson we looked at how height can be shown on a map. The children used potatoes to represent a hill and drew their own contour lines onto them.
In English this week we are working towards writing our own newspaper reports based on Kensuke’s Kingdom. We started the week by looking at an example newspaper report. The children were given the report cut up into its different paragraphs and they had to figure out which order they went in to recreate the article.
To celebrate completing their final SATs paper of the week, Year 6 partied around the school and onto the field. They then enjoyed a dance and sing-a-long to some of their favourite party songs. All of the children have worked so incredibly hard this week and they should be super proud of themselves! This celebration truly was well deserved. Well done Year 6!!
To end our history unit on the Maya Civilisation, we looked at the possible theories regarding the civilisation’s decline. It was clear to us that there are so many theories as to why it declined, but no one actually knows for sure the real reason why. Working in small groups, the children took on the role of arguing why it may have been due to a particular theory. For example, we had Professor Poor Soil in one group and Dr Drought in another.
