8th – 12th March 

We are hopefully into our final week of online learning. We await confirmation from the Government but hopefully we will be back in our classroom from the 15th of March. We are running a competition/raffle this week. There are two Just Eat vouchers as a prize. To be in with a chance to win you must submit work for each day this week. The winners will be presented with their prize in school next week. Well done for all the hard work over the last few months, one last week of work at home and I am really looking forward to seeing you all back in the prefabs next week, (hopefully!).

We are into our 3rd week of online learning. Well done to everyone for all of the hard work you’ve been doing while at home. The organisers of the Write to Read project have arranged for everyone in our class to get a novel so they will be delivered to you this week, so keep an eye out for that. Keep up the great work and hopefully we’ll be back in our classroom soon.

Have a look at some of the great work 6th class have been doing so far this year!

Graffiti Art

World War II Silhouettes

Science Week in 6th Class

As part of Science week, we investigated the difference between acids and bases using red cabbage as a universal indicator. To carry out the experiment we soaked red cabbage in boiling hot water and strained it. We took a sample of different liquids/substances and discussed the universal indicator scale. We predicted whether each substance would be acidic or basic and then added some red cabbage water to see. We compared the results against the indicator scale to decide whether they were acidic/basic. We then organised them from most basic to acidic.

Science Week Art

We then reused the red cabbage water to experiment with fabrics. We dyed the material by soaking it in the red cabbage water. Using pipettes we added some other liquids like lemon juice, vinegar and toothpaste to explore what changes they would make to the material. We created some lovely patterns!

 

Keith Haring inspired mural art

Procedural Writing Tutorials

We have been working on the genre of procedural writing. We have written some recipes, instructions, directions and experiments. We then used Adobe spark to create tutorial videos for a range of procedures. Here are some of our videos.

Christmas in 6th Class

Have a look at our 3D winter/Christmas scenes that we constructed using lots of different materials and with wonderful help from Tony.

We made snowmen using socks, rice, elastic bands and markers. They turned out great!
