Year 6 Term 1 Newsletter

Life as a Year 6 student at Kings School is always busy! We began our first term by studying biographies. We read biographies and autobiographies of a variety of famous and ordinary people. To complete the unit, students produced a PowerPoint on a chosen person that they presented to Year 5.The second English task was studying poetry with powerful images. Year 6 mastered the art of writing poetical images to help the reader to see and feel the poets ideas. Some students are still writing excellent poems in their own time.Year 6 wrote and performed shadow puppet shows based on Ancient Greek stories, which linked with our Science topic of light. They worked in groups to make shadow puppets, write scripts and experiment with ways to block and disrupt the transmission of light. They produced some highly entertaining Greek theatre with great effects.To help us understand the different periods of Ancient Greece, Year 6 constructed a pottery timeline. The students produced a piece of pottery for the four periods of Ancient Greece. They then decorated each piece with a design from that time period. When the finished pieces are lined up together with their notes it shows a clear development of ideas and culture.In recent Science lessons on electricity, Year 6 experimented with building different types of circuits. To show their knowledge of circuits they constructed skill testers to test their nerves. To complete the unit on circuits they were given the task of building an alarm using a contact switch to protect the class set of iPads. Some excellent problem solving and design were demonstrated in these sessions.Year 6 impressed during Science week. Aagya, John, Isaac and Heart represented their respective houses in the Key Stage 3 Science Quiz. Far from being overawed by the occasion they were able to show off their excellent knowledge of Scientists. The Year 6 children all produced a Science Fair project to a high standard and they should all be commended for their efforts.To finish the term Year 6 represented Malawi for the Christmas production Children of the World. They constructed their own leaf skirts and tie dyed t-shirts for their costumes. Karla choreographed the dance after watching a video of Malawian children dancing at Christmas. It was an excellent performance and the children added instruments to complete the African vibe.Looking forward to a successful Term 2.
