Year Six Curriculum Map 2020/2021
Return to School, Autumn One 2020
It is wonderful to have the children back in school, learning alongside each other again. They have shown a huge amount of resilience and thrown themselves back in to their learning 🙂 We are very proud of them.
Science: Invertebrate Spotting and Classification
Today, Year 6 enjoyed ‘invertebrate spotting’ in our school garden and grounds. They used a classification key to help classify them into different invertebrate groups, such as insects, arachnids, molluscs, myriapods and crustaceans.
Inner-Self and Outer-Self Portraits
Year 6 have been reflecting upon their inner selves by drawing and colouring their inner-self and outer-self portrait, which depicts their physical face on one side and their hobbies and interests on the other side.
It has been wonderful seeing some of the creative learning that Year 6 have been doing this week 🙂 The children have been busy doing a variety of activities, including drawing birds; sewing their own face mask; drawing their own flower fairy; and using collage to create cards. Well done everyone!
Optical Illusions in Art:
Year 6 recently created their own optical illusions and used shading to show form. They really are brilliant pieces of artwork!
It is wonderful to see the children creating brilliant artwork. Here is a beautiful piece, using just masking tape and chalk on the ground:
The children have clearly been busy with their distance learning since the Easter holidays. It’s fantastic to see some of the activities they have been doing, such as posters about the importance of bees; ‘Super Bear’ competition designs in support of the NHS; and posters celebrating Earth Day!
Easter Holiday Activities:
It has been so lovely seeing some of the wonderful creations and activities that the children have been doing over the Easter break. These include painting pebbles to recognise our NHS heroes; creating animal art out of recycled objects; creating board games; and working on projects. It looks like they have had a fun and creative time!
This week the children in Year Six created line drawings of animals. We have been so impressed with the care and detail that has been put into the pictures. Here are some of their beautiful works of art.
