History - The children became experts in one of the Ancient African Kingdoms and created posters to share their findings with the rest of the class. They then learnt about the Triangular Slave Trade routes and what the three different journeys consisted of. This week, the children have looked at different sources of evidence to understand what life was like for the enslaved African people who worked on plantations.
English - Year 6 have written some fantastic newspaper reports about the Amistad Mutiny.
Science - this half term's topic is 'Living Things & Their Habitats'. Children have been learning to identify the kingdoms of life and to classify living things within those kingdoms. They have looked closely at vertebrates, fungi and yeasts. Within this unit, the children enjoyed investigating the conditions mould needed to grow and completing scientific drawings of some mushroom spores!
History - Year 6 were really lucky to be visited by a professor from Nottingham University. He ran a workshop on Black History - which included learning about the life of Marcus Garvey.
