CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK
During Book Week, Year 6 had a workshop with Sue Allonby- a local storyteller. They learned a traditional story (one which was not familiar to them); practised the skills of storytelling (so creative vocabulary, concentration, memory and oral retelling); then they performed the story to years three, four and five during assembly.
During this half term, we will be concentrating our studies on Charles Darwin and evolution. We will have the opportunity to develop many science skills such as understanding changes over time (the Earth and living things); explain how fossils can help us find out about the past; and investigating how animals and plants have adapted to their environment throughout time.
So far, the children have been involved in simulating the Earth's changes over time-from its ice age to present day. They made great predictions; asked lots of scientific questions; and then discussed what they thought had happened explaining why.
