Our children were sent a pronunciation guide by a Welsh-speaker. Here they are showing how to say the names of the different Welsh counties. Green screen was used and two of our children got to use Mr. S’ mac to edit the video.
Thank you to Cameron from Code Green, who came in to talk to us about how networks work. We learnt about computers, ports, network cables, routers and network cabinets. The children have been asked to find out how the internet works at home too.
The Year 6 Lions have been discussing what communication was like for their parents and grandparents when they were growing up. After that, they shared how children communicate in the modern day. We have also spoken about the first times that special adults used the internet and what it used to be like.
As part of our Topic, Evolution/Revolution, the Year 6 Lions have been using line sketching and shading techniques to produce detailed drawings of The Crystal Palace. By using our sketchbooks we hope to see how much our skills have improved by the end of the year.
Lots of children are enjoying reading in Year 6 at the moment. Thank you Mrs. Allen for letting us order in these stories written by England midfielder Frank Lampard. One or two of our children read a whole book in one night!
Year 6 are enjoying planning an Easter Fayre – thinking about stalls, staffing and equipment needed. Next, we will be using our knowledge of spreadsheets to calculate outgoings and to predict how much profit we could make. Mr. S has been very impressed by the business acumen on show!
