Linked to our topic, 'Evolution and Inheritence', we began to study fossils to begin to understand how the world has evolved. We looked at different types of fossils and used different sketching and shading skills to draw them. Then we designed our own fossils and chose one to create into our own replica fossil. We created a prototype to practise skills, such as layering, to use in our final fossil replica.
Year 6 have been making links to their coding skills from previous years. We developed our understanding of the 'script' which gives computers instructions. We have built onto these skills to begin to add timers and scores to eventually create a game!
