Year Six - Hawthorn and Sycamore
Year 6 have looked at some fantastically creative topics this half term, including using food to represent the components of blood!
In Science, we learned to identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood. We discussed the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on their way our bodies function and the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals.
We learned about the impact of Climate Change and what we can do to stop it, created our own stop-motion animations and choreographed a performance to The Hall of the Mountain King by Edvard Grieg.
In Year 6, we had a fantastic time learning about World War 2, making Bird Houses, exploring light and even learning how to climb the rope in PE!
We particularly enjoyed pretending to be evacuees and creating our own ration books, reflecting on how it might have felt for the children and families who had to do it for real.
