Great fun dressing up for World Book Day
Year 6 trip to Brunts. On Thursday, Year 6 went to Brunts and participated in a STEM day. They experienced how life would be in secondary school and tried out some new lessons like how to use a bunsen burner.
Biomes - Mr Corrigan had a rest and allowed us to teach each other about the biomes we had studied in more depth.
We made biomes in a bag with cress seeds sealed in a ziplock bag- hopefully we should see growth by the end of the week!
Topic week - Biomes. It was difficult sorting photos by characteristics, even when you know the names of the 7 biomes we are studying( tundra, taiga, temperate forest, grassland, savanna, tropical rainforest and desert).
Investigating circuits in science. Over several weeks we found out how different series or parallel circuits affected the output of lightbulbs.
Thematic week. Learning about L. S. Lowry, pencil techniques, colouring with pastels and perspective.
Topic Week: On our visit to Newstead Abbey we met some actual Victorians. Jane the scullery maid showed us how clothes were washed and dried using lots of elbow grease and a mangle. Then we had to clean some of the family silverware. Mrs Drew, the cook, took us into the kitchen to lean how to make butter and create some decorative bread rolls. We also met the very famous Dr. Livingstone, who was visiting the owners, fresh from his adventures exploring Africa. It really helped us understand about life in Victorian times.
Topic Week: We learned about famous Victorians by finding information that was scattered among the classrooms in order to build up a fact file.
Topic Week: We began by placing the Victorians on a timeline of British History. Of course, Mr Corrigan expected it to scale using 1mm per year so we had to work out lots of measurements. Then we worked as a team to put the labels in the correct places.
Peer editing in English. Supporting each other to make sure our writing is as good as it can be.
In maths we have been using place value charts and counters to help understand what numbers mean and how to add, subtract and multiply them.
The canopy in our reading corner is a big hit !
Wow! Look how busy the teachers have been over the summer creating exciting places for children to enjoy their favourite books. If you have any favourite books, bring them in and share them with your class.
