Year 6 had a fascinating afternoon researching iconic Cornish historical figures with Ed. After this, the children were treated to a show from The Kernow King (Ed) and ‘The Cornish Caretaker’s who brought some famous Cornish heroes and heroines to life with a mix of humour, drama and fun!
Children in Year 6 this week have started their Bikeability training programme.
Here they are, ready to set off safely on the roads!
Year 6 took part in a BBC Live Lesson to plan a story for the 500 word story competition.
500 Words judges and authors Charlie Higson and Frank Cottrell-Boyce and author and illustrator Elys Dolan shared tips, answered questions and showed the class how to write a whole 500 Words story in the space of a single Live Lesson. At the end of the lesson, David Walliams read the completed story to the class!
Year 6 visited Pool Academy to learn about rationing and Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. In their first workshop, children made some delicious carrot biscuits using the foods that would have been rationed during the war. In the second session, the children watched a show in the ‘Space Dome’ about the origins of life.
Last week Year 6 used the life of the artist Piet Mondrian and the Blitz as inspiration to create a cubist piece using pastels. Here are just a few of the finished pieces.
As part of our topic of ‘Evolution and Charles Darwin’ we visited Feadon Farm to meet Gary and the team who showed us a wonderful variety of wildlife. The children were given a wealth of knowledge about various adaptations living things have and how humans can have a huge impact on their survival.
