REQM Silver Award

At the beginning of the spring term, year 6 began to read their class text which is called ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar. Everyone is enjoying the book so far and we have produced some super pieces of written work based on it.

Our ‘Rainforests’ topic has led to a wide variety of work: from Amazon Indian art to producing bar charts. The children created the class display by looking at the different layers of vegetation and animal life in the rainforest.

Our ‘Living Things’ topic in science has led us to look at how all living things are classified. Currently, we are in the middle of an experiment which involves growing mould on bread in various conditions. I just hope we remember where we’ve placed the bread in a week’s time!

Mrs Roberts is the teacher in Year 6.  She is supported in class by Mrs Acharya and Mrs Barras.

The Year 6 children have all settled in well and are beginning to get to grips with the hard work and expectations that comes with being in year 6. We have spent quite a lot of time talking about being role-models for the rest of the school and building a desire to do well.

Earlier in the term we held our own alternative Olympic Games. Events included paper aeroplane making and flying and a ‘Kim’s game’ memory test. The city-states of Corinth and Athens were the winners. We will continue our work on the Ancient Greeks until Christmas.

Our science work on light saw us trying to turn cereal boxes into periscopes. We had quite a few successful attempts and it all helped with our learning about reflected light.

Attached are some photos from the Olympic Games.
