Welcome to Year 6

 In Year 6, the children will be working hard to revise previous learning. We will also be introducing and exploring new concepts across the curriculum to extend their learning.

In English, we are finding out about the Goliath Bird-Eating Spider. We will use the facts that we find to create a non-chronological report informing the reader how the arachnid becomes a predator and how it protects itself.

Our Maths work will be focusing on units and conversions of measurements. For help with Maths at home, take a look at Boothville’s Maths blog.

The Amazon Rainforest is our topic this term. We will be discovering the many flora and fauna that can found in the differing layers and what part they play in the food chain. We will be showing off our artistic skills to hide and extend a photo from within the depths of the rainforest using a range of artistic devices.

Our focus in Science will be Electricity. We will be identifying how circuits work, exploring the effects of voltage and comparing variations in how components function

The Great Wave by Hokusai has inspired our artwork.

We listened to the story inspired by this print:

and listened to Claude Debussey's classical piece La Mer which was also inspired by the artwork 

We have then experimented with differing lines, shapes, patterns and textures. Focusing on details such as the spikey fingers, the bubbles, the lines and waves helped us to create these masterpieces.

This term, we have been learning about Space. We have explored the constellations today and produced some fantastic representations.
