Positive, Respectful and Safe

Miss Bottomley - 6AB

6AB have made an amazing start to the new school year. It has been wonderful to watch them all settle in so quickly and meet friends, old and new. This term we are learning about 'The Victorians' and incorporating a fascinating local element linked to the Emma Colliery. This links nicely with exploring electricity in science and The Salvation Army in RE. We are looking at the work of Picasso in art and of course there is always plenty of computing, French, PE and outdoor learning. If the last few weeks are anything to go by, we can all look forward to a fantastic year ahead.

Maths Investigation

Last week, we went round and round in circles! We explored the different parts of this shape and through our investigations, discovered the magical number 'pi' and how we could calculate the circumference and area using this special number. Here are some photos from the investigation.

Forest Fridays

We are loving our time in the forest area. So far there has been orienteering and giant hide and seek. This week, there was a highly competitive scavenger hunt and we used items found on the forest floor to create words. Can you guess what the children spelt out with their items? We have also started work on our nature art. Some fantastic imagination at work here!

Nature Art
This week, the children have created some fantastic nature art and built shelters. Their creativity, as well as their use of pattern, texture and colour, has really impressed and the results are superb!

Keeping fit and healthy

Launched in Health Week, 6AB have been making great strides to improving overall fitness and keeping their hearts healthy. Every day in October, we are trying to move a mile. We are so lucky to have such lovely surroundings which encourage us to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air. Hopefully our challenge will continue long after October has finished.
