Da Vinci - Year 6

Welcome to Da Vinci - Year 6!

Miss Armstrong, the class teacher, and Mrs Johnson are the members of the Da Vinci Team.

 

In Da Vinci class we believe that together we can create a fantastic, positive and stimulating learning environment, where everyone can thrive and truly enjoy learning.

 

Thinking about yourself isn’t always easy, but it can be fun.

 

This half term our concept is IDENTITY and we will be using sections of the book Can I Build Another Me? by Shinsuke Yoshitake to find opportunities for thinking about who we are, why we behave the way we do and how we can and do change over time.

 

In Science, we will be looking closely at Charles Darwin’s discoveries and how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.  We will use some of Darwin’s scientific drawings to make comparisons to similar drawings done by Leonardo da Vinci as we learn about his life and his art.

 

Our computing unit will link directly with the art unit with the focus of IDENTITY linked to self-portraits.  P4C sessions will look at the use of digital imagery in the media and the effect on how people see themselves.

 

In RE, we will revisit our ideas about Islam, exploring the meaning of ‘sacred places’ and link it to mosques before focusing on what ‘sacred’ means to us.

 

Our Spring Newsletter and overviews will give you more information about the curriculum in Da Vinci this term.
