Topic 2 

This term we are looking at The Renaissance. We found out that  Renaissance started in Florence, Italy, a place with a rich cultural history where wealthy citizens could afford to support budding artists. Members of the powerful Medici family, which ruled Florence for more than 60 years, were famous backers of the movement.  We started by looking at the life and work of Leonard Da VInci.  Children have created a biography of his life, looked at perspective by recreating The Last Supper and even brought Mona Lisa bang up to date by placing her in 2020.  Can you spot the ones placed in Featherstone?

Renaissance Maths -  In Maths, children investigated Leonardo's Vetruvian Man theory by measuring their limbs and finding out what the relationship was between the measurements. 

In Science,  Year 6 are looking at Charles Darwin and his theories of evolution.  We found out that Darwin's theories were not very popular and he was often ridiculed by the press of the time!


Topic 1 - GERMANY

Well, Year 6 certainly threw themselves into our first topic - Germany.  We found out about the Berlin Wall and held our breath as we read about the daring escape attempts by those imprisoned behind the iron curtain. We followed Gerta and her family in our class book, Night Divided which brought to life what life was really like for those families separated by the wall.  We immersed ourselves in German culture, learning the language and sampling some delicious (and some not so delicious) traditional German foods.  Finally, we celebrated our own Featherstone Oktoberfest, creating our own headgear, learning the Schuhplattler and singing the traditional Bavarian Prost song.  What a start to the term!

Congratulations to Chloe for bringing home the gold in the recent Virtual British and English Age Group Championships - what an inspiration she is!
