We were exploring the outside space today and we were collecting...anything!
The pairs or groups then drew tally charts to show what the found. It was interesting as some groups presented their findings in a variety of different ways and then we had good conversations about how the data could be interpreted.
With a swimming gala and rugby event already under our belts, there has been a sporty feel to the start of term! We have also had a focus on SATs preparation whilst talking about Evolution in our Science based topic and we did some work on bullying in PSHE too.
I hope you have enjoyed the first (albeit short) week of term and have a good weekend.
We started looking at Darwin's theory of evolution a little bit today.
We discussed a little bit how the human form has evolved and how some scientific theories show that life all started from one single cell.
Do you have any probing questions about the topic or where mankind has come from?
After 2 really encouraging terms of Sport Leading from Y6, we have tried to find new ways to make sure we are introducing other members of the school community to new and interesting games at lunchtime.
This afternoon we had a good chat about including varieties of game types and we played some of them too.
Thanks to those who have volunteered their time and well done for all the impact that you have had on the rest of the school so far!
You have completed 2 of 3 'long terms' in Year 6 now! With only the Summer to go, make sure you take every opportunity that comes your way in primary school. I am sure the summer term will flyby as quickly as Autumn and Spring have!
Congratulations to our cup winners: Poppy, Gracie, Sam, Izzy and Charlotte for reflecting our school's core values so well and achievements for commitment to running.
Our overarching theme for our topic after Easter is all about evolution and the scientific journey of mankind. Any books about Darwin or the evolution cycle that you might have, or could find from the library, might be useful to give you some background knowledge on the topic.
A little bit of SATs practise in the holidays might increase your confidence levels for the week commencing 12th May. (I will put a few extra word problems on 'Maths of the Day' during the first week of the holidays, if you want to have a go).
Have a lovely break; look forward to seeing you back in school on Tuesday 23rd April.
This afternoon we discussed about the sugar content in coca-cola and we did an experiment with water to show this; then we learned about how nutrients are transported through our body.
Our experiment showed a can of diet cola being placed in a container of water alongside a can of non-diet cola and the level at which they float is compared. The diet cola floats closer to the water’s surface than the non-diet coke suggesting that the liquid inside has a lower density. A plastic cup is placed on the top of the diet cola can and sugar is spooned into it until it sinks to the same level as the non-diet coke. The amount of sugar it takes to do this is comparable to the amount listed as being in the non-diet cola.
