    Published 08/10/21

    This week, the children brought in fossils from home to help bring our science lessons to 'life'. We are learning about living things, evolution and inheritance and for this lesson focused on how fossils give scientists clues about organisms that lived in the past.

  • Here's hoping for mould!

    Published 01/10/21

    We learnt about microorganisms in our science lessons this week. We found out that not all microorganisms are bacteria and protists - some of them are fungi too! Mould is an example of this as it is made up of millions of tiny fungi. They start off as microscopic spores which are carried through the air, but when they land somewhere with enough moisture, nutrition and oxygen to grow, they develop tiny fibres called hyphae, which can be seen as fuzzy patches in different colours.

  • Colour Theory

    Published 16/09/21

    As a part of our art topic looking at the works of Mark Rothko, this week the children developed their understanding of colour theory. They used primary colours to create secondary colours and then mixed these to create a range of tertiary colours. They also examined the effect of adding black or white to a colour to create tints and shades. The children will build on this skill next week when we examine the psychology of colour and answer the question: what effect does colour have on us?

  • Lindy Hop!

    Published 10/09/21

    As a part of our WWII day, the children in Year 6 spent the afternoon playing games and dancing the Lindy Hop to help them understand how people kept their spirts up during the war. We were really impressed with the children's dedication and enthusiasm, as well as their ability to laugh at their mistakes! Here you can see 6H getting into the swing of things, but also take a look in the folder to the right to see other highlights from the day.
