Some important things to remember in year 6:

-Our Dance day is Wednesday. 
Children will need their P.E kits on these days but P.E kits should remain in school all week.  
Homework will be given out on a Monday night and should be returned to school Friday morning.
Children should read at home every night as part of their homework and ensure that their reading record is signed by an adult.

We have been studying the work of the American photographer Ansel Adams. He loved to take beautiful pictures of nature in black and white. He took them in black and white as he believed colour would distract him from the beauty of nature.
Ansel was famous for making photography a form of Art.
We cut up his images to create a landscape of our own in a collage style.
Have a look at the pictures below!

We had the most amazing time in Scotland last week for our Year 6 residential!
The children were so well behaved and showed how brave they could be on all of the fantastic activities! Some of these included; climbing, canoeing, kayaking, abseiling, archery, rifles, obstacle course, high ropes, night line and many more! The teachers were extremely proud of the children and enjoyed watching them conquer their fears, well done Year 6!
You can find even more pictures on our school twitter page!
 
Jack Mc- 'I liked the obstacle course and getting muddy!' 
Holly- 'The hardest bit for me was the high ropes, but everyone encouraged me to do it.' 
Chidu-'I liked orienteering because I liked the independence and realising I can do things by myself.' 
Caiden- ' I enjoyed the challenge of the activities and the fact that I may never get to do them again.'

We have been learning all about the human body. This week, we have designed and conducted an experiment to test which type of exercise increases our heart rate the most in one minute. We learnt all about pulse and how to measure our heart beat. When we finished our experiment, we completed a line graph to show our results. Have a look at the pictures below!

As part of our 'Global Week' activities, class 6P have been using Mathematical data and spreadsheets to create chloropleth maps. A chloropleth map is a thematic map in which areas are shaded or patterned in proportion to the measurement of the statistical variable being displayed on the map, such as population density or income. Our maps show areas of undernourishment across the continents of Asia, Africa and South America. Have a look at the pictures below!
