In Autumn Term, we will be learning about...
Year 6 had an exciting visit from Simon at UTC, who spoke to the children about opportunities to attend UTC in Year 7. The children had to work in teams to design and build a bridge out of lego that would hold 1KG of weight. It was so much fun that Simon is coming back again!
Our first school trip in Year 6 was to the National Marine Aquarium for the STEMFest 2019. The children worked as teams to build a pirate ship to successful transport 'cannonballs'. The all-girls team won, well done! :) Next, the children worked with Princess Yachts to make their very own plaque! This involved filing the wooden edges, hammering the metal plaque into place and engraving their initials! To finish the day, the class went on a virtual reality tour along the Plymouth Sound on a yacht. The children had a brilliant time and were well behaved! :)
To start our new topic, the children became the Year 6 archaeologist team! They had to work in pairs to find the hidden ancient Egyptian artefact, using the skills required of an archaeologist. Once the children found their artefact, they recorded their finds in their books and managed to show their curiosity by asking some great questions about their find!
