In year 6 we started the year by going back in time to the 19th century. We learned all about the Victorians and what life was like in our area during the Victorian era. We studied the classic novel 'Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens and the children got in role and acted out the famous scene where Oliver asks for more.
During the second half term we are learning all about crime and punishment through the ages. Using our core text 'Wild Boy' the children will be studying crime fiction and writing their own short stories. In design and technology the children are working in groups to design and make a French guillotine. Watch this space.
During the first half term Year 6 learned all about North America. We explored the history of Native Americans and wrote our own legends. In art we looked at the pointillisim technique of George Seurat and produced pictures of famous North American landmarks.
In our Science lessons we carried out a number of investigations involving electricity. We discovered which materials were conductors and insulators and made our own burglar alarms.
This half term we are learning about natural disasters. We will be researching different types of natural disaster and then making our own books. We will also be creating paintings of volcanoes and tsunamis using acrylic paint.
