Number Day 2021! Year 6 had a fun maths filled day where we learnt about number sequences, the Fibonacci spirals and how puzzles are created using numbers. We even had a go together at the parent maths question.
Rosie tells tales! We had a fantastic interactive workshop with Rosie who helped Y6 to understand how to create empathy for characters when composing a story.
Mental Health Awareness Week! Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 10 to 16 May 2021. This year, we were invited to immerse ourselves in the '5 Ways to Wellbeing', while reconnecting with nature across the week. The areas we focused on are: • Connect • Be Active • Take Notice • Keep Learning • Give. The main activity we completed to was to build a den/camp using natural resources. We worked in teams to take notice of the environment around us and connect with each other to produce our designs. This activity also gave us the opportunity to be active and learn about the world around us.
ART - Under the theme of 'togetherness' we each designed our own cube to represent ourselves, we then joined them together to create a class piece of art. The colours and geometric design are eye-catching!
Year 6 have been enjoying our school library. We spent time in the quiet space catching up with our favourite books. We also started a book club to recommend books we have loved reading.
Science - We investigated meteors and impact craters; in particular we tested how the width and depth of an impact crater is effected by the size and weight of the meteor. This experiment related to the innovative work of NASA and the recent landing of the Perseverance Rover on Mars.
Additionally, we mixed milk, food colouring and washing-up liquid to visualise the bonding properties of these ingredients - the chemical reactions were fascinating to witness and gave us a better understanding of how the world works.

Geography - In our Geography lesson we researched the biomes of the world. We then worked as a group to present our findings to the class.

Our local community schools police officer, PC Simon did a fantastic workshop for Y5 and Y6 on keeping safe in our local area.
Topic - Save the rain forest. As part of our learning about the rainforest we learned about what we can do to protect the plants and animals. We produced posters in groups to share our knowledge with others.
Science - Using Microscopes. As part of our learning in Science we used microscopes to investigate gut bacteria.

This is a great way to explore shapes while interacting with nature, building spatial awareness and fine motor skills! For this easy activity, all you need are sticks and rubber bands.
First, create 2D shapes with your sticks. How many shapes can you make? What are they called? Next, make flat 3D shapes. Then, challenge yourself to make 3D models of each shape using rubber bands to connect your sticks. Finally, use your imagination to transform your models into something new (tiny houses, space ships, boats, etc.)!
