In English we started the term off working on a non-chronological report about the Manchester Ridgeback dragon.
To help us learn the text we stepped it out. When you step out a text you take a step and retell a part of the text using actions and a storymap.
In Science this term we are learning about Electricity.
We enjoyed making circuits and then drawing them in our books using the correct symbols. We then moved onto testing which materials are conductors and which are insulators of electricity.
In Year 6 one of the trips that we go on is to Junior Citizen at the Fire Station on Rewley Road in the centre of Oxford.
During the morning we got to take part in 8 different safety activities provided by the Junior Citizen Trust and its partners. We experienced different safety scenarios and had the chance to practice making a 999 call. All of the activities were interactive and taught us a variety of life skills.
We have had a fantastic strat to a new school year! Last week (11th September 2017) most of year 6 spent the week at Kilvrough Manor in Wales. We experienced lots of different fun and exciting activities such as body boarding, climbing, scrambling over cliffs, coastal walks, team building and rock pooling. The children also showed many of our school values - unity, repect, responsibility and friendship.
The children who stayed at school worked on a superhero projcet where they designed and developed their own superhero logo.
