Welcome to Helsinki Class
Feel free to look over the children's homework menu to see what different opportunities they have to further their learning and embed knowledge learnt at school. Homework is expected to be handed in by Friday, every week. We would like the children to select either a Maths or English homework alongside another subject each week. Therefore, two pieces of homework should be completed.
Autumn Term Topic 'World at War'
In English we have been learning Rose Blanche through drama, music and art. Here we are in acting mode.
We then created our own musical compositions to go along with the text. We tried to convey the mood and atmosphere of Rose Blanche.
In Science we have been investigating light. Here we were trying to prove that light travels in a straight line. We attempted to change many variables to try to alter the outcome. This was just the beginning of our light experiments.
We also tried to prove that light reflected, by introducing light into a dark box so that we could see the object inside.
We have been visited by Coach Joe and he has been teaching us how to play hockey. From dribbling to passing we are aiming to use these skills in a game scenario.
Autumn Term 2 - World At War
In science we have been exploring electricity. We built circuits and then incorporated them into our artwork relating to contemporary transport during the War.
Year 6 welcomed Private Billy into Jubilee this term. He showed us what it might have been like for soldiers in boot camp. He showed us artefacts from the First World War and even taught us the ways in which soldiers protected themselves from their enemies and the chemical weapons that were used.
In Art this term, we have been getting festive with watercolours. We have been aiming to evaluate and improve our technique using watercolours and create better images each time. These efforts were only our second attempt and they already look amazing.
Spring Term Topic 'Running Wild'
To broaden the children’s awareness in science to how animals adapt and potential reasons for endangered animals’ numbers dwindling, the children were enthralled with a visit from Eagle Heights (which is a wildlife foundation located near Dartford).
