Year 6 Art

This week during art, year 6 looked at what needs to be considered before starting a piece of art. We compared 2 artists styles and thought about their view point. Our drawings started with a focus on the ‘natural forms’ included and created our image of London also considering the scale and content.

Year 6 Science

During science we conducted and experiment, our goal was to see how animals adapt and camouflage to aid in their development to ensure survival. We collected coloured sticks to highlight that the camouflaged sticks were harder to find and so were more likely to survive as their less likely to be eaten and can then breed. We then took this information and displayed it on our bar charts.

Year 1 Science

Today in science, Year 1 measured their hand spans and the length of their feet. They worked in groups to construct a bar chart so that they could easily compare the measurements. In some groups, it was true that people with the longest feet had the biggest hand spans and people with the smallest hand spans had the shortest feet but in other groups it wasn’t. Therefore, we decided that it is only sometimes true. We are going to continue our pattern seeking in science next week by exploring questions such as do people with the longest feet jump the furthest? And can people with the biggest hand spans hold the most sweets? We are excited to continue our investigations.

In geography today, we started our new topic all about rivers. We looked at the water cycle, what a river is and researched the ten longest rivers in the world, locating them on a world map with the help of an atlas and chrome books. We look forward to our class visitor next week who will help us to broaden our knowledge even further.
