Black History Month
As part of Black history month, Year 6 have learnt about the impact Martin Luther King Jr. had on the rights of black people. The children were very inquisitive and enjoyed learning about his life and listening to part of his "I have a dream" speech. They have written a biography about his life and thought about what they would change about the world.
Year 6 had great fun learning how to be safe riding their bicycles on roads around the school. They learnt how to safely ride avoid parked and moving cars, how to cross a road and turn in a junction. Some of them were even challenged to cycle around a roundabout.
Lights, camera, action!
Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed creating a documentary about Iceland as part of their topic of "Weird and wonderful world". The children worked in teams to research an area of Iceland and create their script. Using our new blue screen and camera the children took on the roles of camera operator, director, sound operator and actor to create their documentary. Each group's documentary will be edited together and we look forward to seeing the final production.
As part of our learning about evolution, we went to visit the Parks Trust and learnt all about the timeline of our Earth and different rock types, as well as searching for fossils. We really enjoyed our day (luckily, the weather was kind to us!) and were able to apply what we had learnt when we got back to school, investigating fossil formation. See our photos below!
