Year 6 Wolves


Christingle - Our Christmas visit to All Saints Church

Festive Light Decorations

As part of a Science/Design and Technology unit on electricity, the Wolves worked together to create a Festive Light Decoration. Each decoration had to include a homemade switch (see below), 5 bulbs and a moving part. The resulting decorations all worked brilliantly (with the aid of a power pack for a little more omph!) and looked fantastic.

Switching in up in Science

In Science, as part of their Festive Lights Design and Technology project, The Wolves were set a challenge of creating a switch which enabled a bulb to be switched on/off and remain in that state without being held. The Wolves were free to design their switch as they wanted but couldn't use the 'folded piece of card' method. The resulting designs were really imaginative, and perhaps more importantly, effective.

RAF Sudbury

As part of their history work on World War 2,  the Wolves wrapped up warm and disappeared into the mist. Following a short walk from school, the Wolves found themselves standing on one of the original runways belonging to RAF Sudbury (Stn 174) which was home to the 486th Bomb Group from March 1944 to November 1945. Using a combination of Ordinance Survey and original site maps, the Wolves were able to identify the location of many of the buildings, including the control tower, which would have once stood on the site. There were also a selection of plane impressions as we walked the length of one of runways! The Wolves turned into historians upon the discovery of eyelets cemented in the ground in, what would have been, the maintenance area of the base. What were they used for?

Rainforest Collage Creatures

As part of our work on the Amazon Rainforest, the Wolves produced these spectacular collage creatures. After deciding on which animal they wanted to create, the Wolves drew their own outlines before filling the space with a collage effect. The creatures looked amazing - each with their own personal appearance.
