Yesterday afternoon, Year 6 were tasked with creating a boat made out of paper and one sheet of foil. The boat had to float and be able to withstand different weights in the water.
This afternoon, Year 6 enjoyed a spectacular feast of scientific madness. The University of Manchester showcased some very cool experiments for the children who all had a lot of fun.
Next week, the children will be writing poems in English.
We are having our dress rehearsal for the Christmas performance on Monday, followed by our performance in church on Tuesday.
The children will also be treated to a pantomime (oh no they won’t) by Chaplins this week.
In the afternoons, the children will be completing STEM-based activities.
This afternoon, Year 6 undertook a battle of wits, poise, knowledge and determination. It was a tense, yet useful game to improve their SPaG skills.
This week Y6 will be writing narratives in English.
We will be further exploring living things in science by looking at adaptations.
In maths we will be looking at angles and perimetre.
This morning Open the Book once again taught us about the story of Moses.
We learnt about how the Israelites wandered through the wilderness after escaping Egypt’s rule. They moaned and groaned throughout their journey. Moses apologised to God for their behaviour and God then provided food for the Israelites; however, they still moaned showing they weren’t grateful of what God had done.
