Geography Day The Story of the Icelandic Flag | Guide to Iceland

In today's Geography day we travelled to Iceland! 

First we explored where in the world Iceland is and how long it would take us to travel there. We found human and physical features of Iceland. We then compared the climates/weather for Iceland, our previous country Brazil and the UK. 

 

The Nowhere Emporium 

In English this term we have been reading The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie. A story about a breathtaking world of enchantment and magic. We have created our own setting descriptions to describe The Nowhere Emporium. Please click on the pictures below to ready our setting descriptions. 

Art- Still Life 

In art, our topic is still life. We have explored the work of artists such as Paul Cezanne and Jaromir Funke looking at how they create shade and light to make their work appear 3D and realistic. We have then developed these skills to help us create our own piece of still life art work. We selected three objects the explore and sketch our final piece.  We then also created Negative Medium, where we tried to see light and shade in a new way. The children picked out the shape of their composition using erasers on a lightly shaded background. 

 

DT - Waistcoats

This half term, we have been using the design criteria set by the pupils in FS2 to design and make a waistcoat for their class teddy bear. We used the deign, make and evaluate process to try to create an innovative and original waistcoat that was suitable for the purpose and audience.

Geography Day

Class Shakespeare have had an excellent Geography day today. We have ventured to Brazil, explored the location and how long it would take us to get there. We have also researched the human and physical features of Brazil and looked at what climate zone it falls into. 

Bikeability 

Class Shakespeare have had an excellent week taking part in Bikeabilty!

The children have shown impeccable behaviour and a thorough understanding of road safety.

Well done Year 6. 

 

 

Starting back in September 2020

For children who have not got any siblings in school, their start time will be 9.00am, lining up on the right hand side of the barrier gate. The finish time will be 3.00pm, where you can collect your child from the pathway down Beech Close at the front of school. Your child will be escorted when crossing the road to meet you. For all other Year 6 children, the start time will be slightly different and this will be on your individual letter that was sent out on 10.07.20. These staggered start and finish times are in place to minimise congestion and contact with other bubbles of children.
