Year 6 have been learning about the Mexican festival ‘Day of the Dead’. They have made clay masks and followed instructions to make and decorate biscuits.
Year 6 have been attempting to solve a crime in school this week as someone has stolen the school credit card. The children have been using the skills they have learnt throughout their ID topic to investigate the crime scene by looking at evidence, questioning the suspects, comparing height and shoe size and taking fingerprint samples. We’re hoping to solve it soon!
Year 6 have been finding out all about fingerprints this week, in preparation for writing a report. We have also looked at our own fingers to see what type of pattern we have and have started to make a printing tool with our fingerprint on it. We are looking forward to see how they turn out next week.
We are visiting the police station tomorrow to find out lots more information and have our fingerprints taken! Pictures to follow.
As part of our new topic ‘ID` we have been looking at the meaning of identity. We have created new identities by mixing up our own, made word clouds using words to describe our own identities and are in the process of writing shape poems about ourselves.
