In Year 6, we have been reading and enjoying 'The Giant's Necklace', by Michael Morporgo. We worked as a team to recognise the key events within the story and place them on a chronological timeline that we created.
By understanding how to sequence key events, the structure of a text and chracter actions, we will be able to structure our own short stories, in a similar style!
The 12 Labours of Hercules
For our Greece topic, we have been exploring the 12 Labours of Hercules.
First, we looked at various texts explaining the various labours. We then explored various different interpretations of the labours caused by its origins as a spoken tale, rather than something that was written down.
Then we wrote our own scripts, based on these texts, about one of the labours which we were assigned with by random draw! Finally, we got to perform the labours in front of the class, effectively re-telling the 12 Labours of Hercules.
This was lots of fun - well done year 6 on some super acting and scripting!
In Year 6, we have been learning about shapes and their properties. Having learnt about vertices, edges and faces, we moved on to look at nets of 3D shapes and the best way to draw them based on a 3D representation with precise measurements.
Everyone had a go at making nets, with some children able to create triangular based prisms, octahedrons and square based pyramids. Some valuable lessons were learned about laying out nets systematically and relating measurements to square centimetre paper, but everyone managed to produce some good 3D shapes!
