The 6.2 Minion Challenge
In Year 6.2, we like to encourage reading
Each week, the children will have the opportunity to be in the reading draw.
They need to be using their homework diary effectively, recording all reading at school and at home, writing down their homework tasks and important messages and also have their diary checked and signed by an adult.
Keep an eye on the lucky winners and the even luckier Minions that get to go home and take part in the weekend reading.
Blood models in Science
Year 6 have been learning about the circulatory system. Today, we learnt about the different functions of blood and what it consists of. This includes red blood cells (cheerios and red food colouring), white blood cells (marshmallows) and platelets (pom poms) as well as plasma and other vital nutrients for our bodies to survive.
A very exciting lesson with some fantastic questions.
Shreshta said, " I was really impressed with the teamwork that we used. It was very exciting to find out different ways of finding the lowest and the highest possible number."
Grace said, "It was really fun working with Emma and Erin. They were really kind to use and I hope we can do this activity again."
Maddison said, "I enjoyed this because it was very exciting. We got to try and use different techniques and it made me feel confident."
For our Global Explorers themed week, we have been studying the perilous journey of Ernest Shackleton and how he attempted to be the first to cross Antarctica in 1914.
We listened to his opinion through our conscience alley and decided if we would join the team on it's journey. By the end of the week, we will be writing letters to Ernest himself as to why he should allow us to become a key member of his team and join him on Endurance.
During our STEM activities, we have looked at the different equipment, food and clothing that we would need and have an informed decision as to how we would keep ourselves safe should we visit the Halley VI research station on Antarctica. This had led to budget setting and lots of discussion and team work.
