The Year 6 have been amazing today! They have listened intently, asked a lot of really fascinating questions and been fully engrossed in the information Dave was imparting. The children have had the chance to hear about a range of issues related to the Amazon Rainforest; understand who and what lives there and how they live harmoniously together; begin to understand the types of animals and plants that live in this type of environment and begin to 'light the fire of interest' in our new topic.
The Year 6 have had to carry out a fair test by changing one variable and keeping all the other variables the same whilst investigating the size of a shadow e.g. changing the position of a torch to the object and seeing what happens to the size of a shadow. Additionally, they had to make conclusions from their results as to what has happened to a shadow when the variable has been changed.
The Year 6 have had to crawl through the tunnel to the tomb, observe carefully what they saw and then made sketches ready to explain to their group what they have discovered. This is to experience how a tomb may have been discovered by Howard Carter - the egyptologist that discovered King Tutankhamun's tomb.
As part of European Languages Day, the Year 6 looked at George Seurat and his painting techniques of Pointillism. They used this technique to recreate their own George Seurat style Eiffel Tour painting.
