6 + 1 makes…

…. for a happy memorable event!

This afternoon, our oldest children combined with some of the youngest children in the school, to share Year 6’s work on habitats and adaptation.

Year 6 created clues and took the Year 1 children on a hunt around the school grounds.

We then shared some of our fantastic animals, that we had created in our English work.

The children worked really well together and cooperated beautifully.

Cheers – the Year 6 Team : )

Calling all cavemen (and women!)

Wow! Year 6 had a great day today at the Wide Horizons centre in Eltham.

We made a human timeline, spanning from the palaeolithic period to the present day…

Made cave paintings…

image image image

Met some of the local wildlife…

image image

Used our bare hands (almost) to make fire…

image image

And, finally, built our own shelters…

image image

…all in the glorious spring sunshine. A really enjoyable day and the children were fantastic.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a peaceful Easter break.

Thanks.

We’re loving angles instead…!

Year 6 arrived to find their desks covered in masking tape!? They then had to decide which angles were acute, obtuse or right.

Next, they had to use a protractor to check whether they were correct and see if they could accurately measure the angles created by the tape!

Tomorrow, we will try and identify and classify the shapes we can see on the desks…

Mixing Mania

6A are preparing to create their own versions of Carvaggio’s Medusa. As part of their preparation they have had to learn to make any colour they need using just these powder paints:

We spent the afternoon trying to match colours to the swatches we were given.

A real challenge was to try and make black from the colours we were given…

Have a great half term.
