Year 6 have been learning about Crime and Punishment in History. We learnt about why innocent people were found guilty of the crime of witchcraft in Salem, and the punishments they received.
In Big Write, we wrote play scripts to convey our historical knowledge and inspired by The Crucible by Arthur Miller
Here is a fantastic example by Bailey
Today we wore odd socks to celebrate our differences!
We will be doing work all week around the theme ‘Change Starts With Us’.
This group had to find evidence of the theme of Jesus’ return in an advent prayer.
They then researched the symbolism of the advent wreath.
Today we used our creative skills to make up a dance routine around a theme drawn at random. We were superheroes, robots, penguins and Olympians to name just a few!
We had to keep to a beat of 4 and built up our dances to include more moves.
We have used a range of skills to create our mixed media collage pieces, including layering, ripping, drawing and water-colours.
Please check back on Monday for the photos as I am having some technical difficulties this evening.
Year 6 feel like they have got better at using the tissue paper to build texture, but still need to work on filling the page. We said that we might start with a colour wash next time.
We have been delving into the world of division this week. This group have used practical resources to answer tricky problems which require remainders to be interpreted!
Year 6 have really enjoyed netball this half term. Lilly was a teacher today and led a group for me! she was amazing! Thank you, Lilly!
