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.
Sadly this is our final term at Winscombe yet we have much to look forward to.
Phew!! A truly busy but fun last term!
On Monday 22nd May Year 6 were extreme lucky to take part in a chocolate workshop. Mrs Clark from The Chocolate Tart told us all about the history of chocolate as well as teaching us to make Knackali (round discs of chocolate). We found out this linked closely to our topic as the origins of chocolate comes from the tropics. We had great fun making the chocolates and we even got to lick the spoon after we had finished making our treats!
Walk 4 Wildlife
On Friday 19th May the whole school took part in a sponsored walk which was organised by Year 6. We measured the field and set out the route so we would walk 1Km. We drew maps for the school to follow. We also devised and completed a presentation to each class to ensure they followed the correct route and understood the rules. Luckily it was a lovely, sunny day and the whole school had great fun walking together and raising money for the Rainforest Trust. We also hope to be part of a Guinness World Record attempt of a mass sponsored walk!
In the spring term we are studying "Body and Mind" BAM!
Hula Hoop workshop
We were lucky to take part in a hulla hoop workshop on Friday 31st March. We were taught lots of skills including how to move our hips, keep the hoop spinning and different tricks. We really enjoyed this and had lots of fun.
We have been lucky enough to have had a hockey workshop with Mr Mason from Churchill academy. We learnt different hockey skills and has a great deal of fun! Look at the pictures below
Pablo Picasso Portraits
We have completed an art study of Pablo Picasso looking at how he used line and colour in his portraits. We took photographs of ourselves, cut them up and rearranged them to create our own Pablo style of portraits using mark making skills. Our first design used black photos and black pen. Look at our fantastic portraits!
Life Skills and Bristol Museum
We have already been lucky enough to travel to Bristol and visit Life Skills and the Bristol museum. At Life Skills we learnt a great deal about keeping safe. At the Bristol Museum we studied different art styles and visited each art gallery.
We had an exciting time in our first term as Year 6. We were lucky enough to have our residential camp at Hooke Court in Dorset where we completed fantastic activities. We stayed for 4 nights and had a lot of fun! Please take a look at our photos of our great adventures.
When we returned from camp, we were very busy with our topic " Full Steam Ahead" working hard on all our studies. We learnt more 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.
We also took part in the St James' Remembrance Service on Friday 11th November. We read out the poem "In Flanders fields" by John McCrae.
