Year 6GB have been learning a range of athletics skills this term! Here they are trying out hurdles!
Today we were visted by Alice who spoke to us about bow to stay safe on the roads – especially when walking to and from school.
In science today Year 6 learned about how adaptations have allowed different species of birds to develop different beaks over time. They then had to separate a mixture of bird seed by designing and creating a beak out of pegs, tape and cardboard.
Year 6 collected samples of mud from around the school and mixed it with water to allow the layers to separate. Then they measured the different layers of silt, sand, clay and organic matter. They compared the results for different soil samples from around the school to identify what was different in the samples.
Here are all the photos from World Book Day! We had some brilliant outfits and pyjamas and the class attended a storytelling workshop in the afternoon!
In last Friday’s topic lesson we designed and created buildings to withstand earthquakes! We learnt about some of the different measures architects make to protect a building from an earthquake and the built them from art straws and placed them a shaky table to see if they would survive!
Our PE leaders took today’s PE session! They used their leadership skills that they have developed through the realPE program and led different groups to play some sports and games! Thye were focusing on looking for great teamwork and sportsmanship.
In science today year 6 built upon their learning about light and discovered how opaque objects create shadows. They also saw how the size of the shadow could be changed by moving it’s distance from the light source. They created a shadow puppet play to demonstrate how scientists Robert Hooke and Isaac Newton had differing ideas about light.
