Year 6 have had a busy start to the term which has included a visit from Zoolab, bread making with Roberts Bakery and the first T-day of the year.
The theme of our T-day was ‘Rainforests’. The children overwhelmingly voted to design their own animal adapted to surviving in a rainforest environment. Weird and wonderful creatures were devised showing, not only, great imagination but also that the children were able to apply their knowledge gained over the previous weeks. In groups, we worked together to compose a musical journey through the rainforest using percussion instruments to develop sounds and moods. Not to be deterred by the Autumnal weather, we collected natural materials from the school grounds and combined these to create jungle inspired collages.
The day ‘flew by’ and provided a great opportunity to conclude our topic in a fun, enjoyable and creative way. Well done, Year 6!
