Welcome to Year Six
Mrs Travis & Mrs Ali (Year 6)
Before half term, Y6 took part in the BBC’s Terrific Scientific investigation. For three days they undertook an online task, an activity (walk/run for 15 minutes, a bleep test and the control-sitting still for 15 minutes) then repeated the online task. The results were sent to the BBC and the BBC commented, “Overall the run/walk had the biggest impact on Year 6’s attention and memory, their attention and memory increased after exercise.”
As part of our ‘welcome to year six’, we get to all go away together! In our second week of year six, we went to Brathay in the Lake District! We did a range of activities throughout our three day/two night stay. On our first day we all went on a mountain climb up Todd Cragg.
On our second day we went canoeing and climbing. We Canoed on Lake Windermere, luckily we had some fantastic weather and the views were amazing… We also got to jump in at the end!
On our final day we did Ghyll Scrambling, this is where you climb up rivers and waterfalls, it was AMAZING!!!
We really did have an amazing time at Brathay and we learnt so much about ourselves and our class mates.
In our first week back at school we celebrated ‘Art Week’. Each year group learnt about and produced art work from a certain movement or artist. Year six are looking at the Dada movement or Dadaism.
