This week has been a collaborative week for Year 6V and 6P. At the beginning of the week, we shared our water learning with Year 1 and in turn they shared what they had been learning with us. The Year 6 learners also taught them specifically about water pollution and how it impacts on sea life. On Thursday, Year 6 enjoyed going to see year 7's art exhibition of work inspired by Andy Goldsworthy's natural art.
This week, Year 6 completed their Big Write. They took the learning from the last few weeks linked to the genre of explanations to write an explanation of the Water Cycle which they had learnt about through the lens of geography in Learning Journey. The key learning goals were to ensure it was written in the third person and present tense as the Water Cycle is something that is continuously happening rather than being in the past or future.
In maths the Y6 learners have continued in the quest to be better Learning Facilitators than the current mob at iCAN. They have planned, resourced and prepared lessons to teach the other Y6 learners. At the halfway point of these lessons I would definitely say that these Y6 learners have bright futures as teachers ahead of them. The lessons have been amazing and educational. LFs from other classes have even dropped in to receive some top tips from the Y6 teachers!
