As well as exploring rhythms, Year 6 have also been practising singing a song in two then four parts! Although they found it tricky to stick to their part, they enjoyed singing the song as well as learning about its origins.
Year 6 have enjoyed sharing what they have learnt. They were able to answer key questions about the topic and they produced some really informative writing.
Year 6 identified descriptive words and phrases in the story. They then used thesauruses to find suitable synonyms for the adjectives that the author used.

Year 6 worked on their own versions of a piece of Art by Emil Nolde, called ‘Wildly Dancing Children’.
They studied the composition of the piece and the ways in which the artist had created an impression of rapid movement. They sketched out ideas in their book before, finally, recreating the artwork using pastels. Their hard work is really paying off!
Year 6 are using their reading de-text-ive sessions to gather information about The Titanic and present their findings in their own non-fiction text. Today, some of our de-text-ives researched information about the sinking of this famous ship. They used both their reading & maths skills to find out the order in which the lifeboats were launched after the disaster. They chose their own way present this information.
