Topic

In our Topic work we are studying natural disasters. One of our lessons involved investigating where earthquakes and volcanoes occur.  We learnt that most volcanoes and earthquakes occur at plate boundaries. This activity involved putting the plates back together to create a world map.

Year 6 visited London. We saw the House of Commons and the House of Lords and both were debating different topics. We went on a river cruise and saw lots of London landmarks. Finally we went to the Natural History Museum and looked at some of the different exhibits.

Animal Visit

As part of our Living Things and Habitats topic in Science Year 6 had a visit from Spike, ‘The Animal Man’. The children had the opportunity to touch and handle some of the animals.

“The animals looked scary but in the end they were adorable. My favourite animal was the Gecko.” Reported Jack.

Year 6 House Hockey Competition

On Thursday 15th February we held our inter-house hockey competition. Houses were divided into two teams and played each other. Congratulations to Elm who came first place scoring 15 points. In second place was Ash, scoring 14 points, third place Oak with 10 points and in fourth place Willow with 8 points. All teams displayed excllent teamwork and resilience during the afternoon.

                                                        

Greek Pots

We have been looking at Ancient Greeks in both our Topic and Design and Technology. In ancient Greece, potters were responsible for gathering, moulding and firing clay into vessels. Once the vessels hardened and were decorated, the potters sold them in the agora, or marketplace. The four main pottery styles include geometric, Corinthian, red-figure and black-figure designs.

                                              

Professor McGinty

This week year 6 enjoyed a visit from the hilarious Professor McGinty. The crazy Professor took us in his amazing time travelling machine back in time to the Ancient Greeks. We had an opportunity to handle some Ancient Greek artefacts and some of our pupils dressed in Ancient Greek costume.
