Educating the Whole Child
Year 6 have had another busy half term. This half term, our topic focus has been on the Ancient Greeks. As part of their learning, the children had a Greek Day in which the children got the opportunity to dress up in Greek attire and take part in some drama performances as well as understanding more about what life was like for the Ancient Greeks. Alongside this, the children also took part in bike ability. Over the period of a week, the children had the opportunity to develop their cycling and safety skills. The children did really well with this and all received a certificate and badge for their participation.
This half term Year 6 have been engrossed in learning about climate change. We have learned about the causes of global warming, and how we can all do our bit at home to be greener! We have also been studying the scientist Darwin and his theory of evolution. Did you know that animals have adapted to their environments to be able to survive? In our final week of the term, we designed and made our own pizzas! We thought very carefully about the design and purpose of our pizza and then planned and made it from scratch.
Year 6 have had a very busy first half term with all of our new learning. As part of our kings and queens topic, we visited Windsor Castle to understand history of the British monarchy. While there, we took part in a workshop called monarchy through the ages where we learned about different kings and queens and the history of Windsor Castle. We also learned how the Magna Carter was created and why. After this, we toured Windsor castle and were VERY LUCKY to get to visit the Queen’s final resting place in St George’s chapel, along with Prince Philip and her parents. We hope the children have a fabulous half term and look forward to welcoming them back for Autumn two, ready to learn about Climate Change!
