Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Project - ID

Who do you think you are? Let's discover what makes you....you!

This half term Year 6 pupils will explore the world of human identity and how our unique features can be used to tell us apart from others or help to solve a crime! They will learn about their unique features such as fingerprints and footprints, genes and DNA but also consider the similarities between themselves and others in their families.

Pupils will complete various types of writing on the theme of identity and express their personal opinions and views.

Remember - there's only one you: you're one of a kind!

Autumn 1st half term - 2016

Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Project - Revolution

Are you listening boy? What is 99 + 46? Come on - faster now, we haven't got all day!

This half term Year 6 will be finding out about super strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. All pupils will need to make sure they are on their best behaviour as punishments are unquestionably terrible!

Pupils will be discovering a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the first flushing loo!

Year 6 will be researching a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered.

Full steam ahead to the Victorian age!

Year 6 - Victorian Day - Friday 9th September

Pupils in Year 6  were transported back in time to the Victorian era as part of their 'Revolution' Cornerstones ILP (Interactive Learning Project). Boys and girls were educated in different classrooms learning very different subjects. Silence reigned in both classrooms as Mr Newbold and Miss Eastwood were transformed into two super strict Victorian teachers.
