Tigers - Year 6

Over the last few weeks, Year 6 children have been learning basic First Aid. We have learnt how to do a Primary Survey, how to put a casualty into the recovery position and how to treat minor bleeds and nose bleeds. We will be learning how to apply bandages and slings over the next few weeks. The children have been extremely engaged and have loved the practical elements of the learning. Keep it up Year 6!

We had a fantastic first few days back at school. We learnt about Isambard Brunel and had the opportunity to design and make suspension bridges of our own. We tested their strength using Victorian weights 4/1/19

The Victorians- spring 2019

 

Welcome back everyone and a very Happy New Year to you all! Let's make 2019 an awesome year for learning! smiley

 

Our topic this term is the Victorians.

 

We will be exploring what it was like to be a child in Victorian Britain, as well as looking at great inventions, monarchy and empire.

 

In English we will be studying 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty before moving onto 'The Nowhere Emporium' by Ross Mackenzie and 'The Greatest Showman' (2017).

 

In science we will be looking at 'evolution and inheritance' and making links to our Victorian topic, too.

 

Our mathematics learning will look at measures, percentages, ratio, algebra and area this half term, as well as lots of recapping of topics already covered.

 

Our trip this term will be to the Great Gressingham Victorian School where children will have the fantastic experience of a day in the life of a Victorian schoolboy/ schoolgirl taught by Mrs North.

 

We are super excited to get started on our learning journey! As always, keep checking in for updates of our learning.

Thank you to everyone that donated to the Operation Christmas Child Project - we had some fantastic donations and as a class were able to fill 4 shoe-boxes. We filled 2 for boys (ages 5-9 and 2-4) and 2 for girls (ages 5-9 and 10 -14). The children that receive these boxes will be extremely grateful. What a fantastic thing to do! Well done Tigers 8/11/18.

We have been learning about light and how we see the world around us. Today, the children made periscopes to help them to understand how light is reflected, enabling us to see around corners 21/9/18

Autumn 1

I am  looking forward to an action-packed first half term with the new Tigers!  Since it is the centenary of The Great War, we will begin our learning journey together studying the causes behind it and exploring how it impacted on our locality.

In English, we will be kick-starting our learning by studying some fascinating poetry of WW1.

In Math, we will be studying number and place value, ensuring that we are secure with numbers to ten million.
