Year 6 Blog
This term we have been doing a wide range of tests in preparation for our end of year SATs: arithmetic, maths reasoning, grammar, reading and spelling. We moved the tables, so NO cheating was possible, and we were provided with all the equipment we needed. Reading was the hardest or should have been because it was the first test of the new curriculum from 2016.
In our literacy lesson we have been focusing on a book called Rose Blanche written by Roberto Innocenti. The book is about war and Rose's perspective of what happened. We have had a few experience days, brainstormed vocabulary, acted as characters from the text and used Chromebooks. Finally, we have been working hard to plan and write our own endings for the story.
This term, in art we have been completing a unit called 'Make my voice heard'. We started by focusing on graffiti tags and learning what the laws are about graffiti. One of the classes began to look at the work of Kathe Kollowitz. We have been writing our names in block letters, then we were adding cool features around it to make it more like the vibe of graffiti. We will be going on to colouring them in with different colour oil pastels to make it look nice and colourful and to stand out.
In our history lessons we have been learning about Wonderful Women. We have been focusing on the fact that women were not allowed to do the things they wanted to do. They were not allowed to have jobs or to have the rights that they wanted to do such as vote. They were forced to marry a man that their father chose even if the lady didn't like him. As a female student this is an interesting topic, and we can't wait to learn more about it.
