In Year Six we have been challenging ourself with coding.
Year 6 have been pretending that we have been marooned on an island and we needed to survive (the cold.) We foraged for food, built shelters with raised beds, lit a fire with flint and steel and cooked on the campfire. We had so much fun, thank you to everyone who helped us have an amazing day.
We have been given five tasks to complete over a set amount of time, using our history, ICT, maths and literacy skills, as well as being co-operative and fair to produce a creative Mayan Project.
Thank you to everyone who was involved. We hope you all had so much fun learning about … stereotypes, respect, the islam faith and being unique. from Kayla, Luke and the fabulous house captains.
Our first term in Year 6 went extremely fast and we learnt so much in such a small time frame! For example we very quickly leart how to add fractions, convert between fractions, decimals and percentages using strategies like: using our times tables to find equivalent fractions and common factors.
We have written short stories about being washed up and surviving on the island.Creative experiences have been in abundance including: a music workshop with Anita and Duncan, Brazilian carnival, theme area, green screening and Morfo’s. We all feel really blessed to have these fun times with many lovely people.
We looked at the hat designer Philip Treacy to influence our own headdresses – which we successfully made. We wore these to our Brazilian carnival where we learnt traditional dances including the samba!
