In Year 6, we are beginning to pen an autobiographical piece about a significant event in our lives. To get started, we had to match significant events to either a famous inspirational person or one of our teachers.
It was really quite tricky, but very interesting.
Did you know:
one of our teachers used to ride motorbikes?
Jessica Ennis-Hill was bullied?
Barrack Obama had an Arican half-sister?
As part of our topic this term we have been learning about Charles Darwin. So, this week in science we have been identifying inherited and environmental characteristics. We sorted the characteristics in to three categories - inherited characteristics (those we inherit from our parents) and environmental characteristics (those affected by our surroundings).
Did you know that tongue rolling is an inherited characteristic?
We have also been preparing and practising for our class assembly which is next week. check back soon for photographs of our last, ever class assembly at High View. We hope to see you there!
We have had a wonderful first week to the Autumn Term. The children have settled in beautifully and have already begun to set an impeccable example and act as role models for the rest of the school.
Our first week has been packed full of exciting lessons all linked to our current topic 'Inspirational people. Aspirational us!'
In science we have researched gene inheritence and are looking forward to extracting DNA in our experient in the next couple of weeks. In literacy and reading we have researched Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution in preparation for our first piece of writing where we will be creating a biography about his life!
