Year 6 were invited to Crookhorn to watch their science show. We were able to ask numerous questions and watch a range of experiments. We learnt about liquid nitrogen, air pressure and how your mind can play tricks on you. We were praised for asking insightful questions and our behaviour throughout the show.
Open Classroom 22.09.17
Year 6 would like to thank all the parents that were able to attend Open classroom to see your child's learning environment and their current learning. The children were extremely proud to show off their learning to you.
Love of Reading
Year 6 have been showing off their love of reading, selecting books to read silently and speak to other peers about they have read. Pupils are currently reading War Horse as a class text and using extracts and clips from the movie to support their writing unit.
Technology of Memory Event
Some pupils from year 6, were randomly selected to attend a Technology of Memory event at Crookhorn. They were able to use computers to design their own memory stick and stick the components to ensure it would work correctly. 'I can't believe I made my own memory stick!' stated Alfie.
Our First Week in Year 6
During our first week in year 6, we have explored the outside environment to start our longitudinal study. We are learning about our class creature and comparing it to other classes. We are also exploring how the seasons and different habitats have a different effect on the amount of class creatures found in each area.
We have also begun our topic based 'Ancient Greek Myths and Legends'. We have learnt about the story of the god, which we have performed to other year groups in sharing assembly. We have learnt some individual stories about each god including he God of War, Ares.
We have enjoyed our first week in year 6 and are looking forward to the year!
