Stikbot stop-motion animation: we have been refining our skills to craft a short animation to show a machine's functions, looking for different ways to improve our camera angles, drawing accuracy and believability.

As an entry point into our reading of The Highwayman, Miss Hulland and Miss Fiolaki dressed up: could the children identify these new characters from their costumes and clues?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in 6DH!

More stop-motion animation experimentation. Superb collaboration and creativity. Thank you, 6DH!

Computing: experimenting with the Stikbot app to practise our stop-motion animation techniques.

Thrive fun: what can you do with a slinky and a bouncy ball?

To be inspired and be inspirational! Aaden enjoyed our whiteboard animation so much that he made an Anime-style cartoon at home.

We all enjoyed experimenting with whiteboard animation. In pairs, we practised creating a stop-motion animation using a whiteboard and an iPad camera before sharing with each other.

We are so very proud of our art work! After reading 'The Viewer' in English, we designed and made our own Viewmaster slides, combining PSHE and Art. We thought about significant events in our lives and illustrated them.

Pudseytastic! Thank you for supporting Children in Need 2020 on Friday 13th November.

Our English unit is based on 'Until I Met Dudley' by Roger McGough. We have been reading and writing explanations for how everyday machines work. Here we are rehearsing our active explanations using story mapping.
