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!

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!
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.
Do you know your Bronchus from your Alveoli? Year 6 have been learning all about the circulatory system and today explored the lungs. We built our own lung system, labelled the key parts before explaining how the lungs work and the key functions.
Year 6 have been using acrylic paint to produce their own cityscape. What effective artwork, which they were rightly proud of!
Year 6 have been exploring figurative language and have now used it in their own rain descrption writing. Can you spot the any of the skills we looked at in this piece of writing?

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!
