Art Day in Year 6 was all about our topic ‘Codebreakers’. We started with practicing some drawing techniques that can help us create intricate and repetitive patterns. After that, we explored photographs of various historical coding machines (for example the Enigma machine). Inspired by the codebreaking history, we created our own individual collages. Finally, we worked in groups and designed and made original coding machines with different functions. When we finished, we presented our work to the rest of the class. Thank you Bow Arts for a creative and engaging day!
On the 23rd January 2019, Y6 visited the Imperial War Museum. We went there to learn more about the World Wars.
The museum showcases the experiences of modern conflict. We got to explore the the causes of war and its impact on people’s lives. We also had the opportunity to travel through the trenches and view different war vehicles.
On Wednesday 14th November, Year 6 visited the Museum of London Docklands as part of our learning about World War Two. We examined real objects and discovered what they were used for in WW2. We also explored the museum exhibits and learnt about the effect of the Blitz on the Docklands. We had a fantastic time.
Children in Year 6 explored aquatic fauna and flora in a pond dipping session. They explored the adaptation of freshwater invertebrates to their natural habitat by examining pond animals using magnifying glasses and binocular microscopes. In addition, they used classification keys to identify the invertebrates. In school, they wrote instructions on how to pond dip.
Year 6 had the best time on their end-of-year trip to Chessington World Of Adventures Resort. The sun was shining, the rides were stomach-churning and the laughter was never-ending. Next day, we also wrote some pretty thrilling recounts of the Vampire Ride. What a treat for all the hard work this year! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
