IPC - Brainwave

Year 6 kicked off the new year with the IPC unit Brainwave. Our learning has been focusing on how we learn. We have focused on the parts of the brain, the different types of learners that there are and how to teach new skills to other people. We have created graphs, written information reports and created our very own brain hats. Take a look below at some of what we have been doing. 


IPC - Building a Village

During Autumn 2, our new IPC unit is called 'Building a Village'. Our learning will focus on the key ameneties that a village requires and what makes a successful settlement. We will also be focsuing on grid references when using an atlas, key European rivers and the origins of the names of towns and cities. Furthermore, we will also be focusing on the effective use of persuasive features in English. Our goal will be to persuade the general public  to visit our village that we have created during our Entry Point. 

Entry Point 

As part of Entry Point into this unit, the children created their own village. We learned about the key ameneties that a village requires and then the children worked in groups to create each of them. The Entry Point required the children to use lots of Personal Goals. In addtion to this, the children then needed to decide what tourist attraction they would have in their village and also a village name. 

Villager Profile

What does a village need? Villagers! In addition to creating their own village (which you can see below) the children were given a role within the village. From train drivers to school teachers, each child was given a different role and family name. They then had to create a back story as to why they moved to the village in the first place. Why not take a look below at one of the villages created and the names of each village in Year 6.

English - There's a Boy in The Girls' Bathroom

During this half term Year 6 will be focusing on the Power of Reading text ‘ There's a Boy in The Girls' Bathroom' by Louis Sachar. The text is about a boy called Bradley who is not the most well-behaved boy at school. It rounts his journey from troublesome pupil to a boy who is kind and caring. Why not read the blurb below. 

There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom

"Give me a dollar or I'll spit on you." That's Bradley Chalker for you. He is the oldest child in the class. He tells enormous lies. He picks fights with girls, and the teachers say he has "serious behaviour problems." No one likes him - except Carla, the new school counsellor. She thinks Bradley is sensitive and generous, and she even enjoys his far-fetched stories. Carla knows that Bradley could change, if only he weren't afraid to try. Sometimes the hardest thing in the world is believing in yourself.
