Exercise Experiment

In year 6, we have been learning about how exercise affects our concentration and how we learn. We have been carrying out an experiment in science to investigate this. Before carrying out the experiment, we monitored our heart rate and noted down the score we achieved on times table rockstars. Last week, we sat for 15 minutes and then monitored heart rate and scores afterwards. This week, we walked for 15 minutes and next week we will run for 15 minutes. We are excited to find out how each activity affects our concentration.

Enrichment Week Remembrance

This week we have been learning all about Remembrance, the children have completed lots of different activities related to this topic. They have all made a poppy using PVA glue and red paint, researched all about Remembrance and created a mind map with lots of different facts. The children did a sunset painting using water colours and then used a template to create a silhouette. It has been a fantastic week. Please look at our pictures below. Enrichment Week Enrichment Week Enrichment Week Enrichment Week Enrichment Week Enrichment Week

In the trenches

This week as part of Remembrance week we have been looking at the First World War. We turned our classroom into a battlefield with trenches. We learned about what soldiers did all day and even had a go at fighting the enemy. We are going to use this experience to produce some diaries later this week. Have a look at what we did below.
