WELCOME TO THE SPRING TERM
Happy New Year! Cannot wait to get the new term underway and start our new topic.
Before we do turn our attention to the Spring Term I would just like to think about our last term. We had a great Autumn Term and learnt a lot about the Ancient Egyptians. I was particularly impressed with the homework tasks that the children completed from canopic jars to Egyptian themed board games to pyramid models, including an imaginative use of rice crispies! The time and effort that went into the homework tasks was impressive and I can't wait to see what can be produced for our new topic.
The Year 6 children have continued to plan and conduct experiments in Science with a focus on forces and we will be looking at animals and their habitats, including micro-organisms, this term.
Before we broke up for the Christmas holiday we enjoyed a lovely afternoon at the church where we 'experienced Christmas.' Thank you to all the adults who helped to provide such a hands on learning experience, the children thoroughly enjoyed all the activities.
Welcome to our first blog of the term. What a jam packed first half term we have had learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We had a great History off the Page day to kick our topic off and we hope you enjoyed our class assembly on the last day before we broke up; we have certainly learnt a lot about the Ancient Egyptians so far.
We have also been having fun learning about forces. We have been planning experiments and learning how to write them up correctly with a hypothesis and conclusion. Next we are hoping to use our knowledge of forces to investigate how the Ancient Egyptians actually built the pyramids.
In English we have been learning how to write a portal story using the Talk for Writing method. Watch this space, and twitter, for examples of our work.
Miss Pettit has also appointed our first school librarians to help with the running and development of our library. Alesha, Lexi, Anna and Aaron will be proudly wearing their school librarian badges!
