Year 6

We have begun to make our shelters we have been designing in DT. It has been such a great opportunity for us to work collaboratively and enjoy our last few weeks at school together...

We had a class picnic to say farewell to Miss Baker...

Thank you for all of the contributions

Year 6 Detective Day - We have had so much fun being detectives working out who the murderer was. Clues were left at the crime scene to help us identify the suspect.

We completed an escape rooms in the school hall... we had to solve Maths clues to work out the letters, of which gave us a clue to where we would find the treasure...

To finish off our afternoon we completed a Harry Potter virtual escape rooms.

In Science we have been exploring how the heart works. To help us label the heart, Mrs Wormington dissect one to show us the 4 chambers and what the main arteries and veins looked like...

Music Day in Year 6... We were given the country Oceania to explore the music within this part of the country. We used the music to create a graphic score in the style of Jon Pule...

Music- This week in Music we have been creating our own rhythms to express our musical identity...

In French today we have been learning to ask and say which sports we prefer...

Creating our own lyrics to a beat...

In Music today, we have been using the rapping techniques and use of rhyming couplets to create our own lyrics to a beat. Bailey's was fantastic and he wanted to share his...

In French today we were learning the vocabulary for sports, we then played a matching game to see if we could remember them...

In Art today we were painting in the style of Paul Nash, we used his idea of drawing a landscape within pencil and then adding a layer of water colour first before finalising the painting with the oil paints. Take a look...

Today Year 6 have been exploring a variety of primary resources form WW11, comparing the equipment they had to resources our Army have today. We had such a great day!

Today we had a visit from two little ducks...

We really enjoyed hearing all about how Lexie cares for the ducks. Thank you for bringing them to meet us. 

Final day of Science week- we created butterflies using felt tip pens and dropping the water on top of the ink spots to see what would happen. We had so much fun!

In DT we have been learning how to plan and shop for a family meal. We had to begin by thinking of a dish, which has been inspired from a Great British Dish, and then create our own family meal. Based upon our ingredients needed, we then used online shopping to cost up our meal to see if it was reasonable. We learnt lot's about how to consider offers, buying products based upon their 'use by' or 'best before' dates and much more...

In Year 6 today we grew our own rainbows...

We discovered that this was known as the capillary action, we discussed how the three forces: cohesion, adhesion and surface tension allowed the liquid to move up and form the rainbow. The use of the forces works like a chain which pulls the water up the kitchen roll.  

Today we completed the ice investigation... these were our findings...

We discovered that the colour of the skittle did not affect the rate in which the ice cube melted. We identified it was not a fair test as not all ice cubes were the same size, due to some being broken when  taken out of the ice cube tray, which could have caused a change in our results.  

Todays science investigation consisted of us adding water to skittles to see what happened... look at our fantastic results. We then went onto adding different temperatures of water, including salt. The results didn't change, however the speed of the reaction differed.

Science Week @ Northlands - 19.04.21

 

This week Year 6 will be exploring colour. As part of our science investigations we have been exploring chromatography. 

We have begun by separating the colours of our felt tip pens to see what pigments were used to make them...

We made predictions based upon our previous learning and experiences...

As scientists, we then began to experiment and observe closely what happens when we create a chromatogram...

Finally we analysed what pigments were within each felt tip colour. We then identified that chromatography was the separation of different dissolved substances. In this case, the felt tip pens contain different colour pigments. We identified that some pigments were more soluble than others meaning they moved further up the paper. 

Fantastic Theme homework by Ellie - what an amazing model of a trench within WW1

Roll up, roll up... today is the day Year 6 went to the circus... It was on the 1st of April that Mrs Wormington and Miss Baker had turned our classroom into a circus tent.

Year 6 were so excited, they could not wait to experience a day at the circus...

All of the children really enjoyed being acrobats; learning how to juggle, spin the diablo and hang from the trapeze. It was such great fun. 

Pupils share;

"I have had a fantastic day, I really enjoyed going on the climbing frame and swinging on the ropes."

 

"I have never been to a circus, my experience today was amazing."

 

"I have had the best day."

 

 

 

We then ended our fantastic day watching 'The Greatest Showman' with popcorn and juice- courtesy of Miss Baker

Design & Technology

Exploring Scottish dishes and food tasting oatcakes

In Maths we have been reading and plotting coordinates.

In art we were testing out ideas to use for a final designs. We have been exploring Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Glasgow rose and creating our own designs.

Today in Music we have been learning how to record notes within a stave. We then used the ipads to play our notes on a piano.

Today in art we have been creating our own designs based upon the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Some of us have chosen paints; others have chosen pastels or tissue paper. Take a look at our designs.
