Year 6 Mrs Kelly

Children in Year 6 have impressed us all with the hard work that they have put in over the past weeks on the run up to their SATs. Today has been a fun filled day, which has been well deserved. Children have created origami frogs and butterflies and used their ART skills to decorate. Look at how amazing the results are!

We were so excited to receive funding from the Turing Scheme allowing us to take all of Year 6 to Rajkot in India. We were linked with Panchshil School in Rajkot. Children visited cultural areas of interest : The Gandhi Museum, Pradyuman Park Zoo and Chokidani Resort.  We attended school everyday to learn all about Indian cultures and traditions. What an amazing time we had!

Our lumiere festival this year has an Indian theme in preparation of our visit to India this month. Our parent workshop in Year 6 was a great success!

Our Science topic this half term is "Forces". We have investigated water resistance and air resistance as part of our topic.

Our Science topic this half term is "Forces". We looked at how forces are used when designing buildings. Which team could build a structure to support the heaviest mass?

We visited the Centre for Life in Newcastle to learn more about Earth and Space. We learned all about the stars and nebulas in the planetarium, built a rocket to travel to Space, learned all about how fire and ice can work together and even drank from a toilet!

We've been learning about circuits in Science. We designed some games using a simple electrical circuit.

Year 6 have been digging holes to get into character! We're currently reading "Holes" by Louis Sachar
