On Wednesday 13th March, Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to Queen Mary's College to take part in a Science afternoon put on by A.W.E. The focus was on 'Space' and the children were lucky enough to experiment with gravity, forces, pressure but most importantly they designed and built their own spaceships and test them using some intense air-pressure. Below are a few shots form our time there.
Happy New Year and welcome back to what is destined to be a busy Spring Term.
Our topic for the first half of this term has a Geography theme and is called 'Going Global'. During this topic, the children will be thinking about the connections they have to different parts of the world as well as completing a research project on a part of the world that is new to them.
With SATs not so very far away, we will be devoting a little more of the timetable to preparing the children for the tests and we will be holding another round of parents evenings before the half-term break so that we can let you know how they are progressing.
Our indoor PE sessions will now take place on Wednesdays and outdoor PE will be on Fridays. The children will be encouraged to take their kits home each weekend so that they can be washed and dried for the following week.
A Topic Web for this half-term and Homework Booklet are set out below.
If you have any queries about the forthcoming SATs or anything we will be covering this term, please do not hesitate to contact me..
