Story mapping and circulation in Y6

Home » News » Story mapping and circulation in Y6

Happy New Year everyone and thank you for very thoughtful and much appreciated Christmas cards, gifts and messages before the holiday.

This week, Year 6 began by listening to the fairy tale 'Little Red Riding Hood'. Once we had heard two different versions of this age-old classic (one ably read by Leo), we ventured to the hall and worked in groups to role play the story. Photos show us busy with this task.

Next, we organised ourselves into writing pairs and story-mapped the key events, illustrating our work to make it memorable.

In the afternoon on Monday, we completed a spag test and then began our new science topic 'The circulatory system'. Before we learned anything, Miss Lake asked us to draw a 'What we know now' picture. There were looks of dismay from some as we realised this would be tricky, but we were reminded that when we did this task again at the end of our topic, we'd be able to show just how much we'd learned. Straight afterwards, we watched a video which began to help us understand this critical part of our body's function.

Today, we read a new version of Little Red Riding Hood and unpicked what made the writing work so well. We also completed guided writing and shared writing to talk about and work on an opening to our tale. There was lots of discussion about precise vocabulary and many said how much this had helped them with ideas for their independent writing.

After break, we marked spag homework, completed a task to help us with this week's tricky spellings and marked our spag test. We realised that we are confident with some aspects of grammar, and that there is lots left to learn.

We continued work in science by creating a human model of the circulatory system. We set up the classroom to replicate the heart and lungs and acted as parts of the body, blood, oxygen and carbon-dioxide moving through the circulation system. This was lots of fun and by the end, we had already acquired new vocabulary: chambers, ventricles, atrium, valve and more besides. We think our body is an amazing creation!

To end our busy two days, we read more of our novel 'Exodus'. What an exciting part of the story this is as Mara explores the highly-futuristic New World city.

Enjoy the rest of your week, Year 6.

Miss Lake
