This week in DT, Year 6 have been continuing to learn about the origins of the Cornish pasty. We researched the ingredients that are needed to make shortcrust pastry and created our own recipes.

The children demonstrated excellent understanding this week through use of roleplay and freezeframe in our RE sessions. This generated some deep discussion and helped us to better understand how people's beliefs might impact their behaviours.

In Year 6, we have been very busy eating pasties this week! In Design and Technology we looked at the origin of the Cornish pasty and also learnt more about the benefits of eating local food. We carried out a taste test at the end of the lesson and voted on our top pasty. The pasties were very popular and there were no leftovers!

Year 6 have been doing some deep thinking in RE this week. We've been learning to define the terms 'theist', 'atheist' and 'agnostic' and considering some of the reason's behind people's beliefs. The children demonstrated wonderful insight and asked many excellent philosophical questions.

This week in art, Year 6 have been looking at different works of art and thinking about the deeper meaning behind them. We had a classroom debate to discuss our thoughts and talked about how people may not always see the same thing. Next lesson, we will be making our own piece of art, inspired by our research.

Year 6 have been exploring their creative side this week in our writing lessons. We gathered lots of exciting and inspiring vocabulary to create similes and rhetorical questions. We then used these to write our very own poems, celebrating roots and identity.

In Year 6 we have been learning about Carl Linnaeus who created a system for classifying plants and animals. This week we looked at different animals and generated questions to tell them apart. The children really enjoyed this and came up with excellent questions to show off their knowledge of animals. We will be working towards making our own diagrams to classify animals in the next weeks.

Year 6 held their school councillor elections today. The children wrote spectacular, persuasive speeches which they presented to the class before a secret ballot to choose who the children wanted to represent them in their final year at Treloweth( (no pressure then!) The children went bananas when Luca and Jake were elected! Everyone was so supportive of each other, we were all very proud and impressed. Well done Year 6.
