PGL Liddington!

39 children from Year 6 spent a fabulous five days at PGL Liddington. The children were able to experience an  incredible range  of activities including: archery, zip wire, sensory trail, problem solving, abseiling, open canoeing, quad biking and raft building. They had to use a range of skills including communication, co-operation and resilience, as well as having to overcome their individual fears! No matter the weather, the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and never ceased to amaze the teachers that accompanied them and the PGL instructors. Well done to all the children for their fantastic behaviour and constant enthusiasm.

Emirates

On the 11th January, 20 of our lucky Year 6s got to go to the Emirates Stadium for a STEM project called TeenTech City of Tomorrow. In preparation the children had to create unique buildings, for a city of the future, out of recycled material that would then be presented at the event to a team of industry experts. The children had a fantastic day full of enthusiastic inventors and speakers, interactive challenges and a tour of the Emirates Stadium.

Evolution and Inheritance

The next topic in Year 6 is ‘Evolution and Inheritance’, where the children we be learning about how humans, animals and plants have evolved to adapt to an ever changing world. The children will also be learning about features that we inherit from our parents and how this creates the diverse world we live in.

To begin the topic the children came to school dressed as humans 1000 years into the future. We had a range of well-thought out and interesting ideas about how the world could change.

Fit for Life

The first topic of the year for Year 6 was ‘Fit for Life’. The children learnt about the importance of a healthy diet and staying active. To begin the topic the children invented their own ‘Crazy Games’, a range of obstacles course and games with a wacky twist. Of course, no crazy game would be complete without crazy clothing to match.

As part of the topic the children complete a healthy eating homework project, which encouraged them to design and cook a healthy three courses meal at home. The pieces of work we got back were absolutely brilliant. We can’t wait to see what they produce for the next topic.

To end the topic Parrot class enjoyed making, and eating, fruit kebabs with a range of fruit of their choice.
