Y6 Show Preparation gets underway! /

This week the Y6’s have been hard at work developing their Thornbridge writing piece and they’ve particularly impressed Mr Hastey and I with their resilience and efforts. This afternoon they earned themselves a bit of a treat so we put our literacy books away and replaced them with song lyrics! If you haven’t already found out, this years Y6 summer show will be based on the Disney film: Mary Poppins. I think you’ll all agree with me in saying that these guys are sounding great considering we’ve only spent two sessions looking at the songs!

SATs Revision Timetable /

We have now handed out our SATs revision timetable this morning-it was a little bit scary when we realised there are only around 5 school weeks now left to revise! We have all worked extremely hard up to this point and I’m sure this is continuing at home from the fantastic results we have had this term! Here are a list of useful websites that may also aid your revision at home.

We’ve had some great fun over the last few days all linked to our topic….designing circuits for the Titanic’s lookout tower, building propellers to power our ship and testing materials to see which would work best for the Titanic’s bulkheads!

Miss Redders Vs Class 11 /

I have recently decided that I think the school day should be extended until 5pm to allow for extra learning time. As you can imagine Class 11 were appalled by the idea. However, I have already drafted my argument to Mr Banham that I think he will find quite convincing. It’s now up to Class 11 to see if they can persuade him otherwise using the skills we have looked at recently in literacy….

More Tallant Troubles….. /

After landing safely using our parachute design Mr Tallant was then hit by the terrible weather in Fiji. Deciding to flee the island his only means on escape is to sail his way to freedom! In order to help him do this we have looked at buoyancy today, explaining why things sink or float.

Can you tell Mr Tallant how he will know if his raft to escape will sink or float?

What did you find out today that you didn’t know before?

Did anything surprise you when doing the experiments?

Some eggcellent ways to save Mr Tallant! /

Living up to his usual standards Mr Tallant has managed to get himself into a bit of a situation! His plane needed to make a crash landing and he needed a parachute to get him to the ground safely. After spending the week learning about forces Y6 thought they might be able to help! We created some parachutes and tested them (with mixed success) unfortunately some parachutes may leave him with some minor injuries.
