Year 6 news...
We have enjoyed our p4c sessions so far this year, we spoke about our growth mindset lesson on ‘Brain vs Calculator.’ We came up with our own discussion questions and voted for our favourite to discuss.
Our topic this half term is Water. We have been looking at the water cycle and the features of a river. We used different art techniques to create some art work inspired by the post impressionist style of Vincent Van Gogh.
In science we are studying light. We have investigated how light travels, how we see, different sources of light and how we use them.
Year 6 have been very lucky this year to be working in our new classrooms at school.

Diversity Art Day
Year Six produced some fantastic work during our whole school art day. They focused on a piece of work called ‘Black Children Keep your Spirits Free’ by artist Carolyn Mims Lawrence. The children looked at the use of shape and proportion in drawings, before adding a range of colours.
The topic during Spring term is Egyptians. Year 6 have enjoyed designing their own pharaoh head dress in Art, re-capping previous knowledge from their Egyptians topic from Year 3 and reading and studying the opening of a text based on an Egyptian adventure (Secrets of a Sun King).
Year 6 are beginning a new class text by David Almond called Skellig. The children enjoyed looking through a mystery box filled with clues about the text and made predictions about what they thought was going to happen. They then looked at a variety of front covers for the text and made further predictions. We are looking forward to finding out if our predictions were close.
