In DT lessons, we are designing and then making an Alpine chalet. Today, after we finished our designs, we made a model using art straws.
Today, Y6 have been learning about ratio and proportion. We used cubes to make models.
Today, we had some more visitors from Sheffield University, who told us all about the work they do with fruit flies and zebra fish to help them to develop modern medicine.
The children created mutant flies and fish based upon their genetics.
This linked well with our recent Science learning on genetics and inheritance.
Yesterday we were lucky to spend the whole day with our special visitors from Sheffield University who came to school to teach us all about genetic traits and inheritance. We made key rings to show our own genetic traits, and then discovered how the inheritance of genes is a random process which can skip generations.
It was an enjoyable day. Thank you to our special guests.
We have all enjoyed celebrating books on World Book day.
We started the day with book bingo, then a book blanket.
We listened to the author, Sophie McKenzie, talk about the new book she has written and how she gets her ideas.
Ms Marsh was our ‘mystery reader!’ She came to read to the class.
We made some book-themed bunting to decorate our classroom door. All classes are doing this. The class with he best-decorated door will win a prize of some new books for the class.
