Nurturing hearts inspiring minds

Year 6 Blog 2019-2020

We have created our own islands, using our knowledge about biomes and climate zones. We have written our own reports about our unique 'Lost Islands'.
 
 
This week, we have transported ourselves to the Galapagos Islands to think about the nature of this special island and its endemic population. We have completed our 'Stranded' narratives linked to our text - 'The Lost Island of Tamarind'.
This week we have been persuading people to rescue us via a 'Message in a Bottle'. We have continued our exploration  of the Galapagos Islands by looking at Charles Darwin and his 'Theory of Evolution'. 
Charles Darwin created sketches of many of the creatures living on the Galapagos Islands. We have been practising our sketching techniques to produce our own sketches of an animal endemic to the island. 
We enjoyed a phenomenal visit to the Natural History Museum, which was a remarkable experience. We all had a brilliant time!
We all enjoyed the 'Big bang' science and engineering day! We have started to look at how scientists can use fossils to support the theory of evolution. We have been 'working' for the Natural History Museum as writers to encourage visitors.
