Year Six...the final year of Primary School...being at the top of the tree! This thought can make children nervous or anxious...not so our new Year Sixes...they have settled in amazingly well and are already working hard. They’re busy practising multiplication tables; using numbers up to ten million; they’re really enjoying our class reader, Cogheart; and many have been busy writing letters and speeches in their bid for a role of responsibility within the school.
This afternoon they have enjoyed a hands on Science lesson, classifying materials. Using a selection of gooey, sticky, squidgy, hard, soft and wet things, they decided if they were solids, liquids and gasses by noting their properties; they also discovered that oobleck was a non-Newtonian fluid. Much messy fun was had by all!
