In science, we have recognised that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited Earth millions of years ago. We carried out an experiment involving bread and Haribo sweets to show how fossils form under layers of sediment. We understand that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents. We even did an activity relating to the Mr Men to learn about inherited characteristics! We have been identifying how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environments in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.
Year 6 have been busy learning all about the fascinating architecture of religious buildings. We have delved into the world of perspective, positive and negative spaces, scaling using grids, creating tonal effects, and experimenting with different mediums. We have also explored the work of famous architects, including Antonio Gaudi and Zaha Hadid, whose contributions to the field of architecture are renowned! Through our learning, we have gained a deeper appreciation of the intricate designs and features that make religious buildings such an important aspect of our cultural heritage.
