We have made it to Friday at the end of a strange week for Year 6, we started the week by making poo (!) and ended dressed up in our Christmas clothes.
In our Science work this week we have been looking at the digestive system and how it works to extract the nutrients and energy we need from our food. As part of this session, we had great fun creating a model digestive system using, among other things, an old pair of tights. We took it in turns to be different parts of the system including a lot of squeezing in the intestines. The final product (made of a mixture of biscuits and lemonade) was unnervingly realistic!
This week we have been continuing to work on our Fairtrade i-Movies. This has included working in groups to write our scripts and storyboard our animation. Children have been working hard ‘screen testing’ sections of their script and creating all sorts of buildings and equipment out of paper. We hope to complete our final films next week before the end of term.
We finished off this week in two ways. First by donating food to a local food bank so that everyone in Dunmow and the surrounding area has enough food to eat over the Christmas holidays. Second by filming our Christmas messages for the online digital calendar. This was quite a challenge as it is hard to be sensible and pay attention when wearing a set of fairy lights or your Christmas jumper.
One more week till the Christmas holidays!
