    Heart Dissection

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    The class had a great experience cutting into hearts! It was amazing to see the chambers, arteries and valves up close. The children acted exceptionally mature and used this opportunity to extend their learning.

    STEM Workshop

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    We were lucky to have two workshops provided by Air Bus this term which were very exciting. The children were challenged with designing and building the biggest and strongest plane wing out of Kinex. Every group worked extremely well together, listening to each others' ideas and trying different methods.

    The Human Heart

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    We have spent two lessons looking at the heart and its role in our bodies. We all have one, but what does it actually do and how? The class recreated the circulatory system using some drama to understand how the heart is a double pump and it supplies our body with oxygen while also removing waste like carbon dioxide.

    Netball

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    In PE, year 6 have been doing netball with Mr O (when the weather has been good enough). Mr O is the specialist sports coach and the class have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the rules and skills required to play netball. They have had lots of small matches on the playground and skills have improved greatly over the past few weeks.

    Hans Zimmer

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    In Music we have been focusing on the famous movie score composer Hans Zimmer. The children recognise his music from films such as The Lion King, Kung Fu Panda and Pirates of The Caribbean. We have been focusing on a powerful piece of music called 'Earth' and children have been interpreting the song based on their own thoughts and ideas. They created some art from listening to the music and today we started creating our own music starting with a music Shimmer.
