Welcome to Year 6!
Around the World in 80 Days!
We are working on our Around the World in 80 Days topic, looking at different countries, continents, geographical features of our world, and many other fascinating themes too.
The children have been experimenting with electricity, creating a light celebration for Phileas Fogg after he returns from his famous journey! We have even made dimmer switches out of old pencils.
We had a fantastic residential. We all challenged ourselves, made new friends and memories that we can look back on with fondness and pride for years to come.
We are so proud of how well the children are approaching each challenge. Well done year 6.
Autumn Term 2016
Our topic for the term is called 'Thrills and Spills', and we will be exploring all kinds of themes and subjects relating to fairgrounds, circuses and carnivals.
To kick things off, we had a very exciting visit from a street performer, Simon Chainey, who taught us lots of different circus skills; from juggling to hula hooping, and staff balancing to sock poi twirling.
We also had a stupendous fire show! We were all amazed!
I will shortly be adding links to useful websites and documents that can help with revision and practicing for the SATs. I am very confident that with hard work, dedication and motivation, we will have a fantastic year!
