Stargazer express

Maths Measuring

Sycamore class  have been working on units of measure this week. Today the children had great fun measuring a range of objects (and humans) found in the year 6 classroom and then converted the measurements into decimal fractions.

Amazing Adverts

Year 6 have spent the week working on persuasive adverts for imaginary theme park rides that they created. All of their hard work came together today when they used the iPads to create radio adverts. The results were amazing!

Fairground models

Year 6 have worked incredibly hard over the last 2 days, designing and making moving models of fairground rides. Every model contains a moving mechanism: either a cam or a pulley. Next week we will be evaluating the effectiveness of our creations against our original design criteria.

Thorpe Park

Year 6 had an amazing day at Thorpe Park at the start of the term and kicked off their ‘Scream Machine’ topic with a bang. Lots of fun was had on many of the rides and Sycamore class behaved impeccably throughout the entire day.

Hola Mexico!

Year 5 and 6 have been working hard for the last 6 weeks on their topic ‘Hola Mexico!’ This afternoon we finished off with a Mexican extravaganza, with the children performing the Mexican hat dance, singing La Cucaracha, eating ‘day of the dead’ bread and Mexican sugar cookies Continue reading

Playtime madness!

Sycamore class have been having a great time at playtimes recently! The addition of tyres and other materials to the playground has created many hours of fun across the last two weeks. The adults have loved seeing year 6 work together as a team. Go Team 6!
