Year 6 have had a fantastic start to the year. They are all becoming very mature and reliable young people, relishing the responsibilities that come with being the oldest in the school.
Our Topic this term is ‘Are We Expert Explorers?’. We’ve been enjoying reading ‘Journey to the River Sea’, which has taken us across the Atlantic to Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest. With that, we have compared the physical and human geographical features of the UK and Brazil and are looking forward to trying some coffee art after half term. We’ve been delving deep into the theory of evolution, learning about Charles Darwin and understanding how animals and plants have adapted to their habitats.
In PE, with been thoroughly enjoying playing Tri-Golf, designing, trialling and coaching in our own chipping and putting drills. We also sent a team to the trampoline dodgeball festival – a super 3rd place finish was the icing on the cake – an awesome day!
We’ve become quite the entrepreneurs too; having decided on some exciting end of year trips we’d like to do in July, we’ve been planning and holding some events to fundraise for the events. So far, we’ve held an ice-cream sale and are currently doing a staff car wash. Next half term, we’re planning a cake sale and movie night.
