Year 6 Greek food tasting

When you need to design and make your own Greek Salad what better way to research then to visit the ‘Greek Market’ and do some food tasting! That’s what Year 6 did this week and were surprised to find some new foods they like including olives and feta cheese. We are looking forward to our master chef experience of making our Greek salads over the next few weeks!

Football – Gold medals!

On Thursday 21st March 2019 Ms Mays picked a Year 5 football team (along with two Year 6) and they were Hector, Cody, Harry G, Sid, Freddie, Noah D, Marley, James, Aden, Ethan and Timmy. They successfully got a gold medal. They lost the initial league but then they came back with a victory in the lower tier. In the final they won 2-0 with Hector scoring the first and Harry G the second against Ringwood B. At the presentation they proudly walked up to receive their prize. Then they went home to show their carers their success!

Year 6 – Arithmetic

Who said arithmetic had to be lots of boring calculations!? This week we looked at revising BODMAS and then debated the answer to this problem!

Handy hint: look at each mans hand! If you want to know the answer find someone from 6JJ who can explain the problem to you!

Year 6 – Fire safety

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.

Year 6 Animations

Year 6 have turned their hand to being animators. Creating their own characters, scenes and stories we have shot and discovered how many photos it takes to make a very short animation! Most of all we all had fun and were excited to share our finished animations with one another.

Year 6 – More science!

In science this week we have been exploring how light is reflected and refracted. Who knew why a straw never looks straight when looking at it through a glass filled with water? Well we now understand it is not our eyes playing a trick on us, but the light refracting!
