Autumn 1 2017

A Child's War and Fallen Fields

Imagine leaving home for an unknown period of time, packing your belongings in a small box, no bigger than a shoe box. The children will need to think carefully what they would need and to bring their box of belongings into school.

The children will think carefully about which part of the United Kingdom they might have been evacuated to. They will think how it might have felt to have evacuated and separated from their families. 

They will use the Diary of Anne Frank to write from a child's perspective of war and of the persecution of the Jews. 

They will read Goodnight Mr Tom and use this as a basis for their own writing. 

The children will research the impact the war had on Coventry and find out about the symbolism of the poppy from World War 1.

Darwin's Delights

Today Gogle Expeditions came into school to show off their new education app 'Expedition.' By using virtual reality technology, the children were transported to various places around the world including underwater reefs, volcanoes and the Galápagos Islands. All of this through a simple free app from the App Stare and the Play Store.

Year 6 explored the Galápagos Islands ready to write persuasive texts in English where the children will try to persuade people to go and visit the Islands.

Imaginative Learning Project: Darwin's Delights

During this project, the children have been learning all about Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution.

Paleontologist

Year Six were lucky enough to have an exciting visitor into school to launch their new learning project, where they have thinking about Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution. A paleontologist came in to help them investigate fossils and bones. The children thought about how life on Earth has changed over millions of years. 

The children then carried out an experiment to decide why birds' beaks may have changed over time.

Here are some photos of their special day..

Maths

The children in year six have been learning about the properties of shapes. They have drawn 2D shapes on and added the angles, vertices and lines of symmetry, they also marked in the perpendicular lines and have made their own revision cards to help them remember their learning. 

They having been finding the area and perimeter of triangles, rectangles and parallelograms after drawing giant shapes on the playground.
