History - World Wars
During our history topic we have learnt about the blitz and significant people and events during WWII. We found out that Coventry Cathedral was bombed during the Blitz in 1940 where it was left a ruin. During the Blitz, people were told to build air raid shelters so they could shelter in them if they heard an air raid siren, warning them that bombs were about to be dropped. Year 6 have learnt about the different air raid shelters used during WWII and they made some for homework.
P.E - Gymnastics
In our P.E lessons we built on our P.E from Year 5. We have worked with partners and small groups to create sequences which included different balances such as counter tension balances. In our sequence we had to sometimes work on our own and at other times with our group, using the apparatus that had been set up.
Science - Evolution and Inheritance
During our science lessons we learnt all about evolution and inheritance, fossils, variation and about our own families. Through this topic we have also found out about the key scientists which have led in evolution and inheritance: Charles Darwin, Mary Anning and Alfred Wallace.
Art and Design
Through our Art lessons, we learnt about the artist Lui Bolin. His art is all about camouflage, he creates visual art where he camouflages himself in places such as The Great Wall of China. We also tried to create a piece of art which had some camouflage in it.
Recently, we went on a residential to Robinwood, Dobroyd Castle in Todmorden. Here are a few photographs.
