Jungle Fever!

Welcome to the jungle! Our classroom is turning, bit by bit, into a rainforest.

The children in Class 6 have been working really hard to create stunning rainforest leaves, animal skin patches (after studying Henri Rousseau’s ‘Surprise’ painting, felt butterflies and ‘all about me’ snakes – it’s all getting wild!

We have already been on an exciting visit to The Living Rainforest. We were stunned by the variety of plants and vegetation within the domes and loved observing the range of animals there – we were so excited to finally spot Cinnamon the sloth (after much searching). She was beautiful. It was so fantastic to see the animal that Bussage had adopted as part of the Erasmus + project in the flesh! A great day was had, and the experience is now helping us to have a better understanding of rainforests.

One Night In Africa

Year 6 performed fantastically, making all the Bussage staff (especially Mrs White and Miss Corbett) really proud. It was a superb performance of singing, poetry, drumming and dance. What a wonderful way to end your theme and your learning journey at Bussage.

Welcome to our summer term theme,

In Class 6 this term we will be focusing on human and physical geographical features of the continent of Africa, looking more closely at Kenya which is where our link school is situated, as well as researching a range of the other countries found in this vast area of land. 

Our theme began most excitedly with an amazing trip to London to see a performance of The Lion King, we loved it!

The singing, dancing and acting was inspirational – hopefully we will get some tips for our end of year African performance in July.

We have also been looking closely at African art, in particular the use of African masks. We researched them, did paper symmetrical designs and then created detailed 3D designs from clay. Look at the art work proudly displaying in our classroom.

Year 6 visit to ‘We the curious’, January 2018.

What an intriguing day out was had by Class 5 & 6 at ‘We the curious’ in Bristol. The children participated in a workshop called, ‘Digest this!’ in which they learnt about the journey that food takes through the body through the digestive system. They also made toothpaste and used a fair test to see which was the most effective.

Later in the day the children attended a science show, ‘How my body works’ – during this they learnt: how the heart and lungs work; how a balanced diet is essential to give the body the energy needed to work effectively; and they also found out how muscles work in pairs. All the children had a great day, and a lot of science learning was had!DSC_0739 DSC_0740 DSC_0742 DSC_0735 DSC_0734 DSC_0733 DSC_0732 DSC_0726 DSC_0725 DSC_0700 DSC_0703 DSC_0698 DSC_0697 DSC_0694 DSC_0691 DSC_0690 DSC_0689 DSC_0688 DSC_0687 DSC_0686 DSC_0685 DSC_0684 DSC_0683 DSC_0681 DSC_0679 DSC_0678 DSC_0677 DSC_0676 DSC_0675 DSC_0673 DSC_0671 DSC_0669 DSC_0668 DSC_0667 DSC_0666 DSC_0665 DSC_0664 DSC_0663 DSC_0662 DSC_0661 DSC_0660 DSC_0659 DSC_0658 DSC_0657 DSC_0656 DSC_0655 DSC_0654 DSC_0653 DSC_0652 DSC_0651 DSC_0649 DSC_0648 DSC_0647

Spring Term 2018 – I’ve got you under my skin!

I've got you under my skin front picture

Year 6 have returned this term to find that they are to become scientists! They are embarking upon a scientific term-long journey to find out all about the human body. 

After receiving a video message from Professor Noah Deyor asking for their help, the children began straight away by discovering why a skeleton is so important to humans.

They found our about the bones in a human skeleton and that we each have 206! They worked in teams to make life-sized skeletons – who can now be seen living in our Class 6 laboratory!

Autumn Term2017 – Evacuate! Evacuate!

‘Evacuate! Evacuate!’ Class 6 certainly did just that at the start of their new theme of learning for the term, heading off to Bewdley for a blitz and evacuation experience. Arriving excitedly at our location for the start of the day (Bewdley Museum), the children clambered down from the coach dressed in their 1940’s attire (teachers too) entering a world from the past! Amanda and Christine, the historical presenters, informed the class about life during World War 2 and the many ways families had to adapt to stay safe. Learning how to put on a gas mask, in addition to what to do when the air raid siren was sounded, the children had an authentic and most enjoyable time whilst learning so much! They loved squeezing into the Anderson shelter imagining they were part of a real air raid! The best was yet to come…the actual evacuation!

Marching in pairs through the town towards the train station, the children eagerly awaited the distinguished blast of the train’s whistle and the puff of steam as the train slowly chugged into the station; the experience being made even better by the happy accident of bumping into some adults – who were real life evacuees during the war – on the station’s platform, also awaiting a journey on the steam train. They shared their real life experiences. Singing ‘We’re going to the country!’ as the train pulled away, the children were able to imagine what it would have been like for evacuees in the 1940s, empathising with their worries and excitement too. A wonderful day was had by all, with a wealth of knowledge gained from the day’s activities, the children were set up for the rest of the term’s learning; enthused and ready to learn more!
