What a week we've had! Parachute design in science, Anglo-Saxon gods in history, brush techniques with acrylics in art, negative numbers in maths, coding in computing, top-class PE with Miss Cowling - the list goes on. However, the writing this week has been particularly special. Year 6 were taking on the role of Stanley Yelnats from 'Holes' to write a letter to his mother, with some superb results. Fantastic work all round, everyone!
We have leapt back into science this week, with an investigation into friction: just which material will make the best brake pads for a new design of tricycle? Here are the children in action, putting different ideas to the test.
Year 6 have made a cracking start to the year so far, and already feel like a fantastic team. There is so much potential in the room - we're really looking forward to the year ahead. This week, we've dived into the curriculum, reading 'Holes', writing about Stanley and Camp Green Lake, exploring place value in maths, deepening our understanding of forces in science, and dipping our toe into the Anglo-Saxon history of the North East in history. We've even found time for some assessments! Well done all.
