Autumn 2 term (October-December)

Topic: History (Stone Age)

Science: Evolution

Literacy: newspaper reports

On Tuesday, Year 6 reported the news of a Stone Age artefact found under the North Sea in preparation for them writing their own newspaper report.

We were really lucky today to have a visit from Amanda Harper, BBC Look North Leeds News reader. She came to talk about how to report the news, and how to write an effective news article. She was very interactive and the children loved her! The children even got to hold a camera and a microphone. We’d like to thank her for taking the time to come and teach us.

Autumn 1 term (September- October)

Topic History

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

Science

On Wednesday, year 6 learned about what is inside our blood. We made our own version of blood and had some messy fun!

 Literacy

We’ve been reading Letters From the Light House so in English we are going to write diary entries from the perspective of characters in the story during the Blitz. To start us off, we asked the children to do some drama based around an extract of the text and then we created our own pieces of music to go with this.
