In 6 Horowitz, the children have worked hard understanding the word ‘inspiration’ and considering what this means to them.
The children have also worked hard to create a piece of homework, show-casing their inspirations (Most inspired by key figures in Black History Month) and their quality is extremely impressive! Class staff have greatly enjoyed the different approaches to the homework and the effort put into this!
Mrs McGrory and Miss Edey are so proud of the work the children have been giving in - keep it up!
What we have been learning in Autumn One
6S — What an exciting start to the year we have had! Our topic this half term has been Extreme Earth. The children have loved learning all about hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes and so much more. They produced some fantastic volcano artwork using pastels which we have displayed in class. We also created earthquake simulators in Geography. We designed and made structures out of cocktail sticks and marshmallows. We tested these out by placing them into a tray of jelly and giving the tray a good shake! This helped us to understand more about what life must be like living in an earthquake zone. In English, we have been reading a book called ‘Wisp—a story of hope’. This story inspired us to write our own ‘hope’ stories.
6H — We have had a fantastic start to Year 6! This term, we have discussed the word ‘inspiration’ and what this means to us. We have been able to apply this to Black History Month (October 1st—October 31st) by looking at key inspirational figures throughout history. We have been inspired by Martin Luther King JR, Rosa Parks, Pele, Muhammad Ali, Maya Angelou and Mahatma Gandhi, and from this, we have discussed why their actions are symbolic in history. Our WOW moment this term has been our research and work at home we have produced. We have produced so much work at home that Miss Edey and Mrs McGrory have had to expand our WOW Wall! Hearing about these key figures have not only given us knowledge, but it has helped inspire our writing in English and our stories we have created—all about the need to have hope!
As Year 6, we are so proud of the fantastic term our children have had.
