We have had an amazing afternoon out at Forest School!
The Battle of the Beaks
When Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands, he noticed that the finches that lived on the different islands looked the same but had different beaks. This formed the beginnings of his 'Theory of Evolution'.
This week in Science, we had the 'Battle of the Beaks' - some beaks are better suited to certain foods. It was VERY noisy but so much fun!
Problem Solving with Percentages
One of the trickiest things we do in Year 6 Maths is solve problems involving percentages. We are becoming really increasingly confident!
The Witches of Macbeth
As part of our English unit, we have been performing as the Weird Sisters - the Witches. It was great fun and we were brilliant!
We had to give advice to Macbeth... What should he do next?
We told him our thoughts through 'Conscience Alley'.
Our new Science topic is investigating Evolution and Inheritance. This week, we looked at fossils and tried to decide what creatures may be descended from them.
This term, we are going to be creating our own pieces using musical notation... but not necessarily the type you would recognise. Today, we followed our 'conductor' and created whole class music.
Today, we were straight back into our learning. We were given the challenge of investigating the way light behaves when shadows are formed. Mrs Sample gave us free-reign to decide what we wanted to investigate and how to record our results. We showed a deep understanding of the way light travels AND how to carry out a fair investigation.
She was VERY impressed!
