Study Zone - Year 5 and 6

Welcome to the Study Zone!
The Study Zone is home to Year 5 and Year 6. We know how important it is to be engaged with our learning, challenging our thinking and questioning our ideas. We understand that discussion is an important aspect of our learning, helping us to see different perspectives, different methods of solving problems and also helping us to be open to exploring different ideas.
We like to work in a variety of ways: peer learning to share our understanding; talking buddies to think things through; working in groups or individually to achieve our work. We strive to be independent learners and know it is okay to get 'stuck', as we learn from our mistakes. We mostly work at our tables but sometimes work together on the carpet in groups with the teacher. Some of us choose to work on the carpet during indepent tasks as we find this more comfortable and so can focus more easily.
Summary of Summer Term Topic - Dig for Victory.
What a wonderful end to the summer term. The children have been like sponges, soaking up the learning and really engaging with the work. They have shared family stories of WWII, completed homework projects and spending lots of their own time researching and reading book about the war. We've made some fantastic and tasty WWII recipes; focused on proportion and observational skills with our sketching of aircraft; created batik bunting; learnt about rationing and the home guard; created war poetry and much more.
We're now looking forward to our next topic 'Potion Commotion' in September.
We have had some amazing homework coming in this term related to our Dog for Victory topic. Lots of miniature victory gardens, artwork and baking. Lots of time and effort given to completing work to a high quality. Well done to those of you who have already completed some of your tasks. I look forward to seeing the rest by the end of term!
