In R.E, pupils have been learning about Jean Vanier, who started the L’Arche Community for people with disabilities. Year 6 have come to understand that God has blessed us all with talents: we can achieve justice for all through being non-judgemental and demonstrating compassion. Furthermore, if we open our hearts, we have so much to learn from people who have disabilities.
Year 6 have been catching up and closing the gaps in their learning! They have reviewed a Year 5 topic and through an explanation text, they have learned how the earth and Moon move in relation to the Sun. WE watched some awesome videos and realised the Awe and Wonder of Creation as well as the technological advances which enable us to understand the Universe better.
Following in the footsteps of William Wordsworth, Year 6 wrote their own version of Westminster Bridge, but on Tower Bridge. Wordsworth wrote his great piece 219 years ago and the children were asked to compare the imagery and language of 1802 to today.
Year 6 conducted a fair test in science to observe whether the size and shape of the beak of a bird would affect the number of worms it could consume. They recorded their data using Google Sheets, working out the average and learning how to input formula.
Pupils then went onto create charts displaying their results. They were able to create several charts by learning the chart icon and deciding on the chart which best highlighted their results.
This lesson was thoroughly enjoyed. The pupils welcomed the opportunity to expand their knowledge of applying data to technology. Pupils reported boosted confidence and preparedness for secondary school.
