What are we learning about in Year 5/6 this year?
Engage Trip: Chill Factore (March 2019)
The year 6 children had a fantastic week with INTO University. After a busy week researching, creating, presenting, writing and visiting Norton Priory Museum, they then spent the day at the Manchester University Campus on Oxford Road where they had a tour, visited lots of local attractions and finished with their own graduation ceremony!
Blood Heart! We started our Spring term with an investigation into the heart...
The children enjoyed using our Virtuali-tee (augmented reality t-shirt) to take a closer look inside our bodies! We observed how the circulatory system worked and travelled down an artery!
Visiting Manchester Art Gallery
On the 30th and 31st October, we visited Manchester Art Gallery. We explored the galleries, making sketches of our favourite pieces and comparing the different styles of art. We loved that there were so many types of artwork and now we can’t wait to start creating our own.
A colourful start to our Gallery Rebels project!
On the first day after half term, we spent the morning creating different types of art to kick start our new project. We made our own marbled paper, created our own colour wheels, observed what happens when different colours mix, thought about how different colours make us feel and made our own graffiti art on the laptops.
When we visited Abbey House Museum in Leeds, we became detectives in a Victorian murder investigation and had fun exploring a Victorian street. It was great fun and helped us learn more about life during the Victorian era.
Engage: What a fabulous start to our project this term ‘The Revolution’ (Bread making, gruel eating and beautiful sewing)
