We took part in a guided reading carousel where all our reading skills were tested at different stations. We worked mainly in pairs to sort true and false statements, correct and improve 3 mark questions, skim and scan for key vocabulary and matched questions to their answers. Who knew guided reading could be so much fun?
Today we had our parent workshop. We were given a challenge where we had to use a variety of materials to create a 'boat' that not only floated on water, but held different amounts of weight.
We used card, plastic, paper, tape, glue, corks, lollipop sticks, straws and many other materials to make our creations.
After we began testing them, we soon realised the larger the surface area of the boat the more weight it would hold: this is because the weight was distributed more evenly!
We then had to use our maths knowledge to total the weight that the boats held before they began to sink!
We also observed that the boats with more cardboard sank quicker as they absorbed the water and dragged the boat down. The ones with plastic on the bottom were able to float a lot longer as they were water resistant.
We had a wonderful World Book Day in Year 6. It was amazing to see the effort put in to the different outfits the children had on - from Harry Potter inspired outfits to the real Gangsta Granny herself - it was truly wonderful to see! We enjoyed taking part in our final World Book Day parade at High View too!
Later on in the day, we had the opportunity to share our favourite books with another year group. 6SH visited Year 3 and 6JB were visited by Year 2. Again, everyone had a fantastic time whether it was reading to another, listening to another read, doing the silly voices or listening to an adult, the children enjoyed sharing their books - check out our pictures below!
We had an amazing day!
Today in maths we took part in revision stations. Each station was set up with different activities involving 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We worked in small groups as a carousel and supported each other in completeing the actitvities, we worked hard to remember all we had learnt about shape throughout key stage 2 and also learnt some new, interesting facts about shapes. We are looking forward to building on our knowledge and applying this to lots of different problems and investigations!
