WELCOME TO YEAR 6 OWLS

Owls are creatures of great integrity. They are also serene and wise, using all their senses to adapt to their surroundings. The wisdom of an owl enables them to be unafraid and tackle any challenges they may face.

AUTUMN TERM

 

Autumn Term Curriculum Map

18.09.20 - Art - Jo Di Bona
In Art this week, we continued our journey by looking at Parisian-born street artist, Jo Di Bona. He combines aspects of Pop-Art with graffiti. We took an example of his work and tried to replicate his style and techniques using collage, drawing and colouring. We were very impressed with the outcomes - take a look! 

09.09.20 - Our first Science lesson - The composition of blood.

The blended ingredients create a blood smoothie.
The ingredients look like Blood when viewed under a microscope.

Today in our Science lesson, we began by learning the 4 main components of blood. Plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets play important roles within our bodies. We made a "blood smoothie" to show these components and blended it up to show how these tiny cells are invisible to the naked eye! Some of us were even brave enough to try some! If you would like to make a "blood smoothie" at home, you will need: 

 

  • White Marshmallows
  • Pineapple juice
  • White Hundreds and Thousands
  • Raspberries or strawberries
