Class 6 enjoyed learning about Archibald McIndoe during their trip to East Grinstead museum. The injured RAF pilots would have used clay during therapy to regain the use of their hands so Class 6 had a go at creating clay sculptures of themselves.
This week in science we have been looking at the importance of a balanced diet. We compared snack wrappers and discussed which snacks were healthiest and why. We learnt how to read nutritional labels so that we can make decisions about our food choices.
Class 6 have had a great first week back after half term! We have started our fractions block in maths and children have worked hard on simplifying, comparing and ordering fractions with different denominators. In English we have started looking at local history during WW2. Children have researched the Whitehall bombing and taken on the role of people who might have been there are the time.
Congratulations to the children achieving their Level 1 and 2 Bikeability awards!
This week we used what we have been learning in our P.E. lessons to come up with a circuit activity for our buddies. We adapted the exercises really well so all of Class R could join in and have fun!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit from Mr Hobbs who brought in his WW2 vehicles and artefacts for us to look at (and climb on, try on, examine etc...!)
In our science lesson this week, we carried out an investigation to find out if there was a relationship between the type of exercise we do and our heart rate. Most groups found that running/ sprinting increased our heart rate the most! This was because the heart needs to pump harder to take oxygen to our muscles.
Please find below the presentations shared at the 'Meet the Teacher' and France meetings today. Please come and see us if you have any questions.

Welcome to Year 6!
We enjoyed our 'Stunning Start' - a visit to Newhaven Fort to begin learning about this term's World War II topic. Hope you enjoy the photos.
