This week year 6 welcomed Karen from Hampshire fire and rescue who explored with us keeping safe from fire. We discussed the risks found in our homes as well as the importance of checking our smoke detectors once a week. Karen then talked to us about getting out of our house in the quickest (and safest) way and we designed our own escape route plans to share with our families.
This week in science we have kicked off our electricity learning by making predictions, testing and then explaining our knowledge.
We used lots of electrical components to build our circuits and test them out, giving reasons for them working and not working. We then were set the challenge to see who could design and build the ‘trickiest’ electrical circuit!
What a fantastic week we have had with such an array of exciting activities. We have learnt how to mould a frog from clay using joining techniques and then paint it meticulously using acrylics. On Wednesday, we were engineers constructing a box from balsa wood which we then created into Xbox and Playstation controller boxes.
We have den built, played sports, decorated biscuits (in the most extravagant ways) and learnt that printing can be so much fun. Luckily, we have been adorned with art shirts all week to keep clean!
Today we are going to have fun on our bikes or scooters (rain permitting) and then chill this afternoon watching a film and a few treats to nibble on.
It has been a really super week and we have enjoyed all being together and it being such a great team!
