As we begin our topic about mining, we have started to develop our skills using charcoal. We hope to use the dark colours and smudging techniques to create a scene that captures life in the mines. However, before we begin our masterpiece, we have learnt about the different aspects of drawing a sphere including the highlight, core shadow, reflected light and the cast shadow. By carefully applying the charcoal and smudging, we were able to create a 3d sphere on our paper.
We have thoroughly enjoyed taking our learning outside. To begin our learning journey this year we took on a huge challenge: to measure the trees in our school field. We learnt different methods about how this can be achieved by watching expert tree surgeons who use the principles of trigonometry. We must admit though, we couldn't quite believe that they worked. Once we had found our distance from the trees, we then accurately used metre sticks and teamwork to carefully work it out.
Hi Year 6,
I hope you are all enjoying the holidays. At the moment, I am spending time looking at all the exciting things we will be learning about over the next year and making sure our classroom is super safe. Personally, I'm incredibly excited and looking forward to being in our classroom, becoming absorbed in our lessons, and of course, getting to know you all a bit more. On our first day back, we will have a really nice day. During the morning, we will look at how we are going to work safely and make some decisions together, I will share things about me and I hope that you will do the same: I always like to know about your hobbies and interests as I will aim to include these as much as I can during our lessons. In the afternoon, we will spend some time looking at how we can look after ourselves and exploring all the different emotions we may have faced throughout lockdown and also about going forward, and look at how we can make ourselves feel better and making sure we have a fantastic year ahead. I don't doubt it for a second!
See you soon Year 6!
I hope you liked my embarrassing video! During the selfie video parts, the video showed a mirror image which may have you slightly confused. Don't worry, the classroom hasn't magically changed. I will meet you at the year 6 conservatory door. Naturally, there is always something I forget and this is no different: we shall wash our hands when we come in and throughout the day too! See you soon champions!
