Spring Term - Mayan and Aztec Printing
Using card and string as our printing tools, we have designed and produced some detailed geometric and symmetrical patterns based on Ancient Mayan and Aztec art.
Spring Term - Designing and Making a Lighthouse that Flashes
We have been reading a book called Letters from the Lighthouse that is set in WW2. In DT, we have been developing our programing knowlege so that we could make a light flash. We then designed and made lighthouses into which we could put our flashing lights. We had to evaluate during the designing and making stages to ensure that our designs matched our design criteria.
Spring Term - London Visit
Everyone was very excited as we set off on our annual visit to London. During the three days, we visited Madame Tussauds where we met The Queen and the Incredible Hulk; we had a tour of The Houses of Parliament where we saw a live debate and our local MP, Hilary Benn, took time out of his busy schedule to speak to us; we were amazed by the extraordinary fossils, bird, insects and mammals on display in the Natural History Museum; and we were able to see the close up the artefacts that we had found out about during our autumn term WW2 history topic. The youth hostel was cosy and as we were just a street away from St. Paul’s Cathedral, we always knew what time it was! One of the highlights of the trip has to be watching an evening performance of the musical Mary Poppins. The acting and dancing were magnificent – we all had huge smiles on our faces and we couldn’t stop our feet from tapping along to the music.
Autumn Term - Learning how to play the Ukulele
The wonderful sound of ukuleles playing can be heard if you stand near Year 6 on a Tuesday afternoon. Learning the chords A, F and C, and joining in with many singing and rhythm activities is lots of fun.
