This week, Year 6 have learned about people migrating from Mexico to America. We have looked at the different biomes in Mexico like deserts and rainforests and have written setting descriptions using figurative language!

Team Resilience have created some Arctic art work and written brilliant descriptions of the landscape over the top.

Year 6 had a go with Now Press Play, we listened to an Arctic adventure and acted out the story!

You are challenged to design your own loo roll design, illustrate the different stages of how toilet roll is produced after watching a clip on YouTube to help, creating your own airplane made out of toilet roll and trying to make strong enough to fly. Please remember to photograph your work and log into Class Dojo and upload it so that I can award your Dojo points.

End of term fun with the snow machine

Team Resilience have worked extremely hard today, they have used their determination and resilience to draw detailed sketches of dragon eyes!

Year 6 have used clay to create dragon eyes.

Elf day!

Re-enacting the Battle of Hastings!

Team Resilience have made shields ready to re-enact the Battle of Hastings later this week.

We have made castles with drawbridges this week. Year 6 worked brilliantly in their groups to create their model.

On colour day, Year 6 all created their own art work on separate squares and then put them all together to reveal the whole picture.

Team Resilience really enjoyed colour day! It was lovely to see everyone dressed in red.

This week, Year 6 have launched their new topic 'Why did people build castles?' We took part in knight training, learning what it took to become a knight.

We have been recapping contractions.

This week, Year 6 have designed their own theme park.

We have written descriptions of a fairground, using exciting vocabulary.

Team Resilience launched our new topic 'Why does the Goose Fair come to Nottingham?' today. We tasted fairground food, played fairground games and used the green screen to create pictures of ourselves on rides.

This week, we have made emotions in a jar. We thought about what colours we should use for each emotion.
