Year 6

This term in Science we studied Evolution and Inheritance and Animals including Humans. Children looked back at how today's modern people evolved through time. We had a wonderful workshop which really helped build our knowledge of evolution through time. We looked at many fossils that were 1000’s of years old. We learnt in depth about how our bodies worked in our Animals Including Humans topic. Topics such as the different blood cells and how they worked, how the circulatory systems works and how exercise, drugs and alcohol effect the body. This linked very well with our English topic and we produced some fantastic cross curricular writing.

In year 6, we have been looking at electricity and how to make parallel and series circuits. We looked at the importance of electricity, how it powers our world and how to use it safely. Children experimented with different voltage batteries and how it effected the brightness of bulbs. For our outdoor learning day, we investigated climate change and how this is effecting the melting ice caps and rising sea levels around the world.
