Active Learning (The World Around Us) - Investigating a Viking's Diet

To find out what a Viking's diet was like, we carried out a Viking Poo Investigation. We had to find evidence within the 'poo' that would give us clues to what type she of food they would have eaten. It was interesting to learn how healthy Viking people were and ate basic but healthy foods.  Definitely no fizzy juice, chocolate or crisps!!

On Wednesday 4th October, Y6B were introduced to Izac9. These are a set of 9 cubes that aim to stretch pupil mathematical problem solving. We began on Wednesday by having a look at the cubes and discussing in our groups what could be sorted using the cubes they were given. Watch the video below and see how quickly everyone became engaged in the task at hand.

Active Learning - Numeracy (working together) 

 

Today we were looking at Function Machines.  We had lots of laughs being the 'machine' with lots of beep sounds for good measure! We were learning about an input and output, a function and how to make a Function Machine work in reverse.  We then got into groups of 3/4 to make our own Function Machines, showcasing our understanding at the end! See our photographs below.

Friday 1st September - Kandinsky Art

In Y6B, we were studying the art work of Russian born artist, Wassily Kandinsky. We began by discussing the three primary colours and explored how these colours could be used to make all the other colours.  After completing a colour wheel, we used the new colours created to paint our own version of Kandinsky's painting entitled 'Squares with Concentric Circles'. Have a look at our photographs showing us hard at work.
