Welcome to Sweden class! We are Year 6. Miss Walker and Miss Wild are our class teachers. Mrs. Purvis and Miss Maxam are our Higher Level Teaching Assistants.
Year 6 have been learning about how light reflects. They worked together to investigate which surfaces make the best reflectors. After analysing the materials and making a prediction, they carried out a fair test in their groups and then formed a conclusion.
We’ve been really enjoying the outdoors over the past couple of weeks. We had a week of Forest Schools sessions with Jules which were great fun – as always! In our PE lessons, Laura from Active Education has been doing some brilliant rugby sessions with us, and helping to improve our co-ordination and teamwork skills. Then last week, we had a visit from Greening Wymondham, who kindly gave each child a tree sapling to plant and look after at home! We hope everyone’s managed to find a pot or a nice space to plant it in.
We have been learning to draw detailed sketches of objects in different sizes, keeping features in proportion and including details. First, the class used magnifying glasses to look closely at pieces of fruit and veg and draw them in their sketch books; then they enlarged their favourite drawing as a pencil sketch; then they completed another version of the same fruit but using pastels or paints. Some chose to replicate the same colours through careful colour mixing, whilst some chose to use a surreal approach and produce a pink kiwi or a blue pepper!
Our Year 6 trip to Norfolk Lakes has been booked for 18th-20th March 2024. A letter will be sent home this week, but please have a look through this powerpoint to find out more information about activities, accommodation and costs.
