Launch Day Spring 1: World War 2
Launch Day Autumn 2: Amazing Animals
The children spent the start of the day reminding themselves of the key systems of the body. They explored the structure of the skeletal system in our science lab and learnt some interesting facts about the digestive system.
Year 6 then used resources from home to create anatomically correct models of human organs. They researched key facts and used these to create posters and poetry about the heart and the lungs. Finally, the children conducted their own investigation based around animals and their organs.
Launch Day Autumn 1
Year 6 launched their topic for the next two half-terms 'Our Changing Climate'. The children explored five types of biomes and their physical geographical features. They carried out research into how the different climate of each biome affected the type of wildlife that can be fond there. They also looked at how changing climate can have a negative effect on the biomes. They then selected a biome of their choice, researched it in more detail and created a diorama which included appropriate fauna and flora.
