Topic

Evolution & Inheritance

Year 6 participated in a Battle of the Beaks experiment to help gain an understanding of Darwin's theory of Evolution. 

 

Extreme Earth

 

We made some models from recycled materials to demonstrate the problems the Earth faces from climate change. We also tried to be positive and think about the things we can do to minimise any of those problems.

World War One

 

 

Our first topic is World War One. We are learning about its causes, where the fighting took place, life in the trenches, life back home, how propaganda was used and how the Treaty of Versailles eventually led to the origins of World War Two. Here are some interesting websites about our topic:
