Year 6

Art Week

We started the term off by exploring the artwork of Banksy. Banksy is an anonymous street artist whose distinctive art and political messages combine dark humour with graffiti executed using a stenciling technique.

English

In English, we made links to our Thematic learning while reading ‘The Secret of the White Buffalo’ which is a Native American tale. We made predictions and then wrote letters (as Blue Cloud) explaining to the villagers how to use the special pipe to help them work together in harmony. 

Picture 1 We started by making predictions about the story.

Maths

In Maths, we have been using bar models to help us solve word problems. We then use formal written methods to add and subtract our numbers.

Science

We have been learning about Electricity and investigating different types of circuits. We tested different circuits to find out how changing the voltage and number of components alters the brightness of a bulb or the loudness of a buzzer. 

Picture 1 We used the correct symbols in our diagrams
Picture 2 We can draw circuit diagrams using symbols
Picture 3 We made predictions about what might happen
Picture 4 We investiagated series and parallel circuits.

Picture 6 We found out about scientist Thomas Edison

English

We have been reading and exploring the poem ‘The Raven’ by Edgar Allen Poe. It was written in 1845 and, therefore, contains many old-English words which are not in use today. We have discussed the mood of the poem, its meaning and the poet’s use of figurative language for effect. We also watched The Simpsons version which helped to develop our understanding of the poem. And yesterday, we were treated to a new pop-up book of The Raven - which we love!
