Easter Holidays

 

It's the Easter holidays now. Hope you are enjoying the sunshine but still staying safe. You could make your own Easter garden, or Easter cards. Here are some other ideas for things to make and do at Easter. 

 

Bunny Cups

 

Marbled Eggs

 

You can marble the eggs using nail polish mixed with water. Ask for permission before you do this!

 

Egg vases

 

Easter Nest Cakes

These Easter nest cakes are easy to make and delicious to eat:

Here is the link if you want to try the recipe:

It's the weekend again, and we should have been breaking up for the Easter holidays today! We would have made our Easter cards and baskets this week, and the Easter bunny would have delivered the creme eggs today. However, you could still make those Easter cards at home. There are loads of good ideas on the internet for how to make your cards. My children made some yesterday, and we posted them to their grandparents (who we are really missing). Have a go at making your own, and send a picture by email of your design. We will post it on the website and twitter. Take care all, enjoy the sunshine this weekend, but stay safe and stick to the rules.

We were going to be learning about "fair trade" in geography last week and this week, but unfortunately we didn't get chance. So you could use the websites below to research what fair trade is, and write a report about it.

It is available for all year groups, so if the Year 6 one is a bit tricky, try one of the other year group's.

Hello Year 6! Well for most of you, your first week of home schooling is done. I hope you have tried some of the tasks from the grid we gave out, or some of the work we put lower down on this page.

Welcome to Year 6's Webpage 2019/2020

 Mrs Mutton and Mr Bradley (6M), Miss O'Shea and Mr Bradley (6S), Mrs Walker
 
 
Come and see what the children in Year 6 get up to at Woodgate School.

The Shang Dynasty - China

This half term, Year 6 are studying the Shang Dynasty from Chinese history. We are also learning about Chinese New Year. This includes a visit to Chinatown in Birmingham, and a visit to Ming Moon! Watch this space for photos of our trip.

Art

 

 

The children in Year 6 learnt about Edvard Munch, a Norwegian born, expressionist painter, and printer. The children created many forms of different artwork in the style of Munch for the topic on volcanoes.

Charanga Music

 

 

Year 6 have enjoyed our music lessons using our scheme called Charanga. The learning in this unit is focused around one song: Mamma Mia by ABBA - a unit of work about ABBA, their music and how they contributed to the development of pop music. This unit incorporates an intergrated approach to music where games, the dimensions of music (pulse, rhythm, pitch), singing and playing instruments are all linked. The children are fully enjoying these music sessions.
