You are now entering the Year 6 Zone! WELCOME to all!
In Yr. 6 homework is given out on different days of the week. Look at the timetable for the day each homework should be given in.
This is our final term at Winscombe. We have a busy term ahead with SAT week and rehearsing and performing our Key Stage 2 production where we will be the stars! In the mist of all this we will be studying the fascinating civilisation of the Maya. We are excited to be moving on to secondary school but we are sad to be leaving our lovely Winscombe.
In this new year we are "springing into action" with our topic called "BAM" (Body and Mind). We will be learning a great deal in this science topic. For example we will study the Cardiovascular system and its function as well as learning about health and fitness. We will test a hypothesis practically and study Picasso's portraiture.
We have looked at Pablo Picasso's portraiture and have created our own portraits, initially in black and white using mark making techniques. Have a look at our fantastic art work below.
Science week - The science of food - testing apples
Thatchers came into school to help us understand taste. We also tested for starch and acidity in different liquids. It was great fun.
We are having an exciting time in our first term as Year 6. We have been lucky enough to have our residential camp at Hooke Court in Dorset where we had a great time taking part in lots of activities over a 4 night stay.
We are now very busy with our topic " Full Steam Ahead" working hard on all our studies. We are learning about Victorian Britain, particularly finding out about Isambard Brunel and his achievements and legacy. Plus what it would have been like to have been a child in Victorian times.
Full Steam Ahead
We are really enjoying our topic this term. We have learnt all about how children lived in Victorian times including the jobs and difficult life they had to lead if they were poor.
We have been studying William Morris as part of our topic this term. Have a look at our colourful art work in the style of his work.
Year 6 had a fantastic week at Hooke Court taking part in lots of different activities. Have a look at what we did below.
