PE: Dance, Movement & Gymnastics

Last half term we created a sequence of dances based on our Space topic. Year 6 worked in small groups to produce different formations and transitions, using counts of 8 to stay in time with the music. We created group motifs and worked in unison to  form a fantastic final routine!

Dance

In PE, we have been looking at Movement and Dance. We are focusing on spatial awareness, body control, rhythm, timing, transitions and teamwork. We have learnt new body moves which we will put together into a sequence and dance based around our Science topic, The Solar System. 

 

Science

We had a visit from the Planetarium, which was amazing! We learnt so many facts about our Solar System and even managed to have a question and answer session afterwards. This is going to help our learning so much!

We researched information about the planets  in our solar system and created our very own planets. First, we needed to use paper mache and balloons to create the shape. When these had dried, we carefully painted the correct colours, creating texture and detail. Finally, we made fact files and displayed these in our classroom. 

 

Art

We had a close up photo taken of our face, then traced around it using tracing paper. Using the transfer, we copied our face again and used a combination of fine liners/marker pens to add detail. Finally, we added coloured crepe paper and newspaper articles/images from World War 2 to create a background.. 

In our first lesson of the half term, we used the grid method to copy an image of a World War II plane. Afterwards, we enlarged and repeated the image onto A3 paper.  We added detail and shading, making sure we kept within the correct gridlines. 

In our third lesson, we created a water colour wash to match the background from the original image. 

 

 

Hello Yellow Day

To celebrate World Mental Health Day, we all came dressed in yellow. We worked in groups to discuss mental health and what we could do to help. Together, we made a short video. 

 

Homework Tasks

We've been so impressed with homework tasks completed so far this half term. To view your homework tasks click here.

Forest Schools

We played games and had lots of fun in our woodland! We explored, made rope swings and built dens. Then we sharpened sticks with vegetable peelers and finished the session with a wolf howl around the fire! 

 

Science

In science, we are learning about animals and their habitats. We are looking at the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. Also, we are describing the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals. 

The photos below show our first scientific study, we started with a parent plant (sempervivum) and each picked a plantlet. Next, we put soil into a plant pot and added the plantlet. The plant that is produced (from the plantlet) will be a clone of the parent. 

Identifying parts of a flower

We dissected a lily head and labelled the parts of the flower.

PE

As a warm up activity in PE, we worked as a team to navigate around an obstacle course. We had to keep the ball balanced in the air, with only one index finger touching the ball!
