This week in year 6, alongside preparing for our end of year performance, the children have started their science topic of ‘Light’. The children had to prepare an aim, carry out an investigation and conclude their results.
The writer of the week goes to Rhys for preparing a detailed report. Well done, Rhys!
A huge ‘well done’ to all of our Year 6 children who completed their SATs papers this week. This pictures shows the delight they all felt after finishing their final paper (we threw scrap paper, don’t worry!)
We are all extremely proud of your hard work and positive attitude.
Miss Smith & Miss Cope 🙂
This afternoon in year 6 we spent some time painting our clay hearts we made a few weeks ago.
We had an enjoyable afternoon after our hard work so far this week due to our mock SATs.
Today Rowan were able to complete their memorable experience of a sheep’s heart dissection! We investigated each side of the heart and compared it’s size, then made two incisions to see inside the atrium and ventricles. We even poured water into each of the veins and arteries to investigate whether they took blood to the heart (veins) or away (arteries). As we had cut the side of the heart open we could see the water flowing out!
In Redwood today, we finally managed to dissect hearts! We worked in groups of 3 or 4 and identified the features of the heart that we had been looking at so far this half term.
We then spent some time dissecting the heart using scissors and sharing what we could see. Some of us even put our fingers inside the aorta!
We had a great time and wrote detailed recounts about the experience as part of our literacy writing.
This week in year 6, the writer of the week goes to Harvey Rosa who has produced a detailed, descriptive shape poem based on the heart. He has really grasped the emotion behind the poem also. Well done, Harvey!
This morning, Redwood made a trip to North Melbourne Library. The children learned about the process of getting a book out of the library, the different sections found inside the library and also the different libraries around Essex.
The children were extremely respectful and asked intriguing questions. Some even registered to get books out! Well done, Redwood.
