STEM Week 11.03.19
What a great week of STEM we have enjoyed. On Monday afternoon, we learned all about DNA and made DNA sequences on a Dance Mat!
Tuesday was our pig heart dissection day and we also saw a 3D printer in action.
The Science Fair on Thursday was particularly impressive and thank you for supporting your children with this.
See some pictures below.
As part of our topic, we have read extracts of Goodnight Mister Tom. We would like to show children part of the film during our WWII topic day.
The film tells the story of a child evacuee from London.
The film is rated ‘PG’ due to: ‘moderate frightening/intense scenes’ and ‘moderate violence’.
If you would prefer for your child not to watch this film, please let us know before Thursday.

Year 6 'Marle Hall Landscapes' - January 2019
It has been an absolute pleasure spending a week with your children. They have done you all proud and have represented our school fantastically well.
I hope you enjoyed the photos. We tried our best to get lots on. We are extremely proud of all the children and would happily repeat this week in a heartbeat.
Friday 16th November
This week we were all really hyped up about the most amazing trip EVER- Marle Hall! We have also been doing some super sums in mathematics with a protractor... we’ve been doing angles! Yippee!!!
In English we have been using all our year 6 knowledge about vocabulary, semi colons, relative clauses and subordinating/coordinating conjunctions - *phew* that’s a mouthful!
On Thursday 15th November, we had a whole day focused on remembrance day!
Did you know that the cornflower is the French remembrance symbol (like we have the poppy)? We also made Haiku tunnels about the war – it was really interesting!
So far year 6 has been epic and so exciting!
Marle Hall here we come! WOO!!

Friday 9th November
After a well deserved rest we returned to school and started our new learning theme...
Our first piece of work was writing what we knew about natural things on the Earth. After that we made our front covers out of card to represent the four Elements which are fire, earth water and wind. In Science, we talked about erosion and the three main types of rock. Also in Science, we made models of the three main rock types out of sweets, so we could learn how they are formed. The three rock classes are sedimentary, metomorphic and igneas.

Friday 28th October
This week, on Monday, we evaluated our Tudor purses and made a timeline about Tudor monarchs - did you know that King Henry VIII was paranoid about hygiene and Elizabeth I burnt all her portraits? In Maths, we were solving word problems about decimals and in English, we learnt about active and passive voice. Finally, we had the first day of parent’s evening.
The most fun part of the week was when we made bread in the shape of hedgehogs (then ate them) on Thursday; it was the last day of parent’s evening. On Friday we evaluated it and recorded scientific findings.
In PE, we had our last session of tag rugby.

Week beginning: 3rd September 2018
Reminder: Thursday 13th September is House Captain election day. If you want to put yourself in the running for election, come prepared to give a speech to some of your house members and Mrs Sheepy.
This week, Mrs Sheepy and Mr Grana have been interviewing children for the role on executive commitee. There are 4 roles: Chairperson, Vicechairperson, Secutary and Treasurer. The interviews started Friday 7th September and ended at 1: 20.
We have started our first topic in year 6 which is Toil and Trouble. This is where we are learning about the Tudors and William Shakespeare's Macbeth.
Our highlights in maths was where we had to work out a multiplication grid without using the digit 9. With Miss Helm we were doing decimal numbers.
In science, we were investigating that light travels in a straight line and we had to shine the light through a makeshift paper cylinder
