In art and topic, we have been studying Greek Architecture. Taking inspiration from the Parthenon and its architects Ictinus and Callicrates, we have designed and made temples in one or more of the three orders: Doric, Ionic or Corinthian.
It has been science week this week and Year 6 have been investigating blood!
They have been looking at what makes up blood and what jobs each part has. Look at our blood models.
This weeks Golden Rule is Be Gentle. Year 6 voted for two wonderfully gentle girls: Lara and Brooke. It is wonderful to have such amazing children in our school.
We have been looking at nets of cubes and using our problem solving and reasoning skills we could say why the nets would and wouldn't work.
Using concrete objects is so helpful!
What a wonderful ceremony, the third Movers and Shakers of the year!
Massive progress has been celebrated! Over one third of the year group has been a Mover and Shaker so far. We are really proud of you!
This weeks Golden Rule was listen to people. Jack and Eva were voted by their peers as good listeners, which we all agree with. Amazing! Keep it up!
This week we have celebrated Safer Internet Day. As well as many other activities, Year 6 were given the task 'If I had one wish for the internet, what would it be?'
Demonstrating creativity, we produced dramas, songs, posters stories and even coded an animation.
Look at our amazing work.
Today we have been experimenting with circuits to further our understanding how voltage affects the brightness of the bulb or the loudness of the buzzer.
This weeks Golden Rule winners were Faith and Amy. Two wonderful role models showing how we follow the golden rules. Fantastic girls.
As it is Children's Mental Health Week, we have been looking at different strategies to keep our mind healthy. We even got to try some out! Exercise was a definite favourite, as was mindful colouring. Some of us have started trying meditation and yoga at home.
