Spring Term 2019

We’ve just had a Design and Technology Day! Each class have researched, designed, created and evaluated different products to sell at our Young Enterprise Marketplace, which will be held tomorrow! Year 6 have created some amazing felt purses and wallets, which put into practice various skills! They even had time to bake some delicious chocolate chip cookies!

As part of World Book Day, Year 6 took part in a quiz, read some of their favourite books, designed front covers for their short stories with flashbacks, and spent some quality time reading with their Reception Buddies!

In a recent Maths lesson, Year 6 worked in small groups to match fractions, decimals and percentages dominoes to form a loop!

During the Electricity topic in Science, Year 6 have been creating their own ‘Steady Hand’ games whilst constructing circuits. They needed to make sure their conductors were working properly and everything was wired up correctly!
