This half term (Summer 1 2018) Year 6 have enjoyed studying the question ‘Is there life out there?’, looking at Earth, Space and everything in between!
As our Maths and English lessons have focused on SATs preparation, the children have really enjoyed the project based approach to topic. For homework many pupils created 3D models, including a full model of the solar system!
As part of this unit we have read the novel ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cotterell-Boyce and even wrote some of our own ‘Longtown Conspiracy Theories’ .
In Science, the children have been learning all about polymer products (by far their favourite part of the topic) resulting in producing their very own slime.
Next half term our topic will be ‘London Calling’ preparing for our up-coming residential as well as learning about our capital’s rich history.
The Year 6’s half term highlight was receiving their leavers hoodies and celebrating the end of SATs week with a well-earned bowling trip!
