Clip ‘N Climb

Year 6 challenged themselves a completely different way today, when we visited Clip ‘N Climb! Everybody showed superb communication, teamwork and resilience skills to step out of their comfort zone and to try a new challenge. It was amazing to see how the children all developed in both climbing techniques and confidence from the start of the session to the end. Some pupils even climbed up the challenging walls blindfolded and backwards too!

Year 6 made me incredibly proud to be their teacher!  The level of support and encouragements which they showed each other was amazing!  Well done Year 6!

Design Technology

Year 6 have been investigating how bridges are constructed and analysing the effectiveness of each design.  In this lesson we explored ways in which trusses are used to strengthen bridges.  We selected to create either a lattice, warren or pratt truss and then carefully measured the amount of weight which it could support.  Some of our truss bridges surprised us! Take a look at our photographs!

Rounders

Over the half term, Year 6 have been developing their throwing, catching, fielding and batting skills.   We then incorporated these skills into our rounders matches.  We understood how teamwork and communication was essential for the team to work well together.

Design and Technology

As part of our Design and technology work , we have designed and created vases using clay. Here are our sculptures. When they have fully dried we will use various techniques to paint and decorate them.
