Year 6 bought in a number of items, such as a 1p coin, a newspaper and photos of their families, to put inside the Time Capsule. The children then buried it and wrote instructions on how to find it.
As part of our topic, Year 6 will be creating a time capsule to be buried and then re-opened in fifty years! The children have written a fact file about themselves to place inside along with an item of their choice. Please can the children each bring in an item to place in the time capsule (bearing in mind this will not be returned) for example, a photograph of their family, a newspaper, or even an advert of an item used nowadays. We will then be burying the capsule within the school grounds. We look forward to receiving your items. Please ensure these are in by the end of term.
This half term, spy Jamie Bond asked the Year 6 children to complete an investigation. The children were asked to find out which surface created the most friction and would be the most appropriate for a 'get-away' surface. See if the children can tell you which surface was the best!
This week the children explored circuits and discovered how electricity works! They also got a chance to visit Fort Purbrook for our Junior Citizen trip. This taught the children the importance of seaside safety, fire safety and how to look after the environment!
This half term, we have been learning about volcanoes and how they are formed. In groups, the children had the opportunity to design and make their own 3D volcano. Using our key jigsaw pieces the children used a variety of skills to create fantastic models- which they very much enjoyed. Thank you for the donations you sent in which enabled us to be able to resource this activity.
Year 6 have come home this week with a SATs revision pack. Please can any test papers and spellings be returned by Friday 13th October. We thank you for your support in helping your child succeed.
If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Year 6 team.
This week Year 5 and 6 had a great opportunity to test their Maths skills in a problem solving day. The children really enjoyed themselves and came away enthralled.
