Sharing the Planet: The ocean environment can be altered by human activity.

Thursday 14th February

The children were asked to research the following question:  ‘How are coral reefs being damaged by humans?’ Be creative – could you record your own news report (making your own video/radio interview), write your own newspaper article, make a 3D model, produce an information leaflet?

Some children created models, others made PowerPoints which they shared on our Goggle Classroom – this allowed the class to use the Chrome Books to view each other’s work as they were able to open the PowerPoints in Goggle Slides. 

Sunday 10th February

The children in Redwood have used the chrome books to research what the government and large companies are doing to address single-use plastic problem. Here are Tyler, Abigail and Ruby’s reports about what is being done to #passonplastic.

Children worked in groups to create a dance to tell part of the story of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. We used the following piece of music: ‘Camille Saint-Saëns – Danse Macabre’.


Thursday 7th February

Here are some examples of the artwork that the children have created having studied Pointillism.

Wednesday 6th February

Here are some examples of Redwood’s Narnia writing: we’ve written character descriptions, diaries, newspaper reports and a narrative piece. They’ve really enjoyed reading the book and are now looking forward to watching the film in its entirety!

Tuesday 4th December

Year 6 enjoyed an exciting day of outdoor learning last week, linking to the some of the children’s questions about their learning journey – Globetrotters. The children were split into teams and had to work collaboratively to complete four orienteering tasks. The children were competing to complete the tasks in the fastest time to earn stars for their team. The stars could then be exchanged for equipment to help them build a shelter in the woods.
The children developed their understanding of map symbols, how to follow maps and basic orienteering skills whilst also developing their ability to work as part of a team.
It was a fantastic morning and lots of fun was had by all. We are extremely proud of the children’s approach to these tasks and the determination they demonstrated throughout the day.

18th September

In gymnastics, we have been practising the following shapes – straight, tuck, pike and straddle. Today we worked in threes to begin to create a routine to music that incorporates these four shapes. We thought about different ways of transitioning from one shape to another.

In our Learning Journey lessons we have been learning about the skeleton, muscles and joints. We created our own models of the elbow joint, showing how antagonistic muscles work together to relax and contract when the arm is moved.
