Autumn 1

Topic- History- WW2

To engage our Year 6 children in our WW2 topic, we had a really exciting WW2 day! We put the children through their paces in boot camp and created some beautiful Blitz art work.

 

In their first topic lesson the children have been learning about WW2 and the events that led up to it after WW1. Here are their timelines of events that they created in pairs.

On Tuesday 6th October 6a and 6b had a virtual meeting with Judith Rhodes. She tells the story of her mum who was evacuated at 15 years old. The children were interested in what she had to say and ask so many questions. It was a little strange Judith not coming in, but the children made the best of it. Please ask them about it!

Art- WW2 artists

We have been learning about the war artists Eric Kennington, Henry Moore and Victor Lundy. We learnt about the artists first and discussed what we liked about their pictures. We then created an information page in our sketch book, where we wrote about which picture we liked and why, how they made us feel, research some information about the artist and had a go at replicating their drawings.

Science- Circulatory System

Yesterday, the children began to learn about their Science topic and what a journey through the body looks like. They looked at the heart, blood vessels and blood.

They created their own circulatory system on a tshirt after Miss Wood model how it worked. She used a tennis ball soaked in paint to show how the heart pumps blood around your body and balloons to show how your lungs work when you breathe. Some of the children’s circulatory system diagrams are below.

On 7th October the children got to make a model of the heart from plasticine. They were really excited about this and have produced a variety of different models of the heart. Next week we will be using our models to label parts of the heart.

Year 6 learned all about blood yesterday afternoon and what is in it as they made their own bag of blood! First in went the plasma (orange juice), then red blood cells (jelly bits) then white blood cells (marshmallows) and finally platelets (cheerios).

They have learned about what job each of these components do and why they are so important, as you can see from their amazing information texts! Well done year 6, great scientific learning this week!
