Year 6 Project - Tomorrow's World
Text messages, emails, websites, blogs and podcasts. There are so many ways to communicate. Learn how to set up a class blog and build a homepage on a subject of your choice. Suggest ways to improve your school website, and hopefully the headteacher will listen to your ideas. Discover the movers and shakers in the world of technology, the people who’ve shaped the modern world. Perhaps you might be a visionary for the next generation. Build robots and circuits, break codes and investigate gadgets galore. Why not write a thriller narrative in the style of Anthony Horowitz? Then, on request from MI99, build a website for a new Spy School. What pages will it need? One for gadgets? A secret lunch menu? You decide. Let’s start today on Tomorrow’s World.

Please find attached a copy of the PESE (Primary Education Secondary Education) Transfer presentation. This presentation was sent, via email, to all Year 5 parents in May 2020. As a school, we would have held a meeting to discuss the process with you but, as the school was only open to Key Workers, this was not possible. If you have any queries about the process please contact the school and we will be happy to help or direct you to Schools Admissions.
For those parents who have applied, on behalf of their children, to take the Kent Test, the test date has been set for Thursday 15th October 2020.

Now that the weather is much colder, we ask that the children's PE kit contain jogging bottoms (and a zip-up if possible) for their weekly outdoor PE session.
This week's homework is;
What a memorable experience dissecting a lamb's heart was! We were able to investigate the four chambers of the heart and the arteries and veins. It was fascinating!
We also made artificial blood, representing the main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets.
When it's raining outside and you still want to get your body moving, why not try your hand at speed stacking? Year 6 are quite the masters at this sport!
Our Indoor PE session this week allowed us to learn a new game where we could refine our co-ordination and agility skills!
Following their research in Science and their persuasive writing lessons in English, Year 6 have been using the Chromebooks to create their own anti-smoking adverts.
This term we have written various non-chronological reports about The Heart, its function and how to keep your heart healthy. Great work Year 6!
This week in PE, we took part in Boccia and Curling working in small teams to perfect our aim and accuracy skills.
Year 6 have been perfecting their sending and receiving skills in tag rugby. Here they are practising the 'pop' and 'spin' pass down the line in a race against the clock. Great work Year 6!
This week we have been investigating algorithms to see if they are accurate and efficient. Here we are following a pre-written algorithm to order a set of numbers.
When it's raining outside, Zumba is relocated to the classroom. Here we are dancing away and busting some groovy moves! 🕺👯♂️🕺🏽
This afternoon, Year 6 spent their DT and computing lesson evaluating the home pages of different websites. We were investigating features such as headers, logos and navigational links. This will then help us to design our own websites. Watch this space for our creations!
