In Science we are investigating electricity. We are constructing circuits with an increasing number of components and contrasting the effects this has on the function of the components.
Year 6 have really enjoyed reading the book Holes. Some activities included creating models of the deadly Yellow spotted lizards and writing information texts about them. We also inspected the camp and wrote a letter to the sheriff urging him to close it down. We enjoyed using ICT to write newspaper reports about Kate Barlow as well as make wanted posters. We were glad to not come face to face with the Warden and her rattle snake venom nail polish!
Year 6 have been enjoying PE with a coach from Leeds Rhinos, teaching them athletics.
Year 6 enjoyed an informative trip to Harrogate College to learn all about how to make informed decisions when faced with danger. We learnt how to respond effectively to emergency situations and accidents.

Year 6 love going down to reception to listen to their buddies read. Today was even better because we were all dressed in our pyjamas!
Year 6 have been exploring sequences, finding 'nth terms' using algebraic formulas and investigating relationships between numbers.
Year 6 hot seated the characters from the poem 'The Highwayman' to find out more about their thoughts and actions.
In English we have been doing lots of work on a narrative poem called 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. We have done some fantastic work on figurative language and explored the authors use of metaphors, similes and personifications to create imagery. We have created our own metaphors and displayed some in the corridor. Feel free to pop in and see our creative ideas.
