Looking at how living organisms evolved and how we have become humans by illustrating the layers of earth in jelly. The children had to ‘excavate’ the jelly to see what was in each layer. They could then make their own evolution timeline from sweets.
We analysed the structure, different types and design of the skate ramps in preparation for making our own. On our return to school we have produced accurate drawings of our observations and will be looking at ways we can interpret the different features in to the design of our own mini skate park. Do we want a steep ramp for speed or a 45 degree ramp for trick practise? Year 6 will be busy designing, constructing and testing these ramps over the next few weeks.
