In Science this half term, our topic in Year 6 is Adaptation and Evolution.
We have been looking at creatures and animals and seeing how they have adapted to survive in their habitats.
We have looked at different habitats and compared things that are similar and things that are very different.
Last week, we went out into the school grounds to explore our nature garden.
We became mini-beast detectives!
We tried to find different creatures and see what features they had to make them suitable for living in a garden environment.
“I really like it when we explore. Lessons are fun when we go outside.” Nozuma
This week, we were visited by a travelling play company.
We sat and watched the Mister Shapeshifter Play in the hall.
Sports UK have been in to school this half term to work with Year 6. We have been learning how to play Frisbee!
When we were told that this year our competition would be Frisbee, some of us couldn’t see how this would be a competitive game!
How wrong we were!
Frisbee, when played correctly, is a highly skilled, fast paced and an extremely energetic game.
We have enjoyed learning the different kinds of throws and catches and it has been interesting to learn how the rules of a Frisbee “match” works.
We hope to win the competition at the end of this term…
Check back for further updates on our successes!
“I really love our Frisbee lessons! I look forward to my PE on a Monday to compete against the other children and try out the new skills we have been learning.” Starla
We are looking at Special People in RE this term. We have been studying special people from different religions.
One of the stories we looked at was The Good Samaritan.
We acted this story out in class before producing our own versions on storyboards in our books.
“It was fun acting out the story.” Oliver
