Shell-less egg

Children in year 6 have been learning about Osmosis using the shell-less egg experiment. The children soaked eggs in vinegar to dissolve the shell, followed by soaking the shell-less egg in syrup to dehydrate it. Children weighed the eggs after each step to record the difference in weight.

Here is a link with instructions for anyone interested in trying the eggsperiment at home:

Muffin Sale

For the past few weeks, year 6 have been making muffins to raise money for their leaving party. We want to thank you all for your contribution and hope you enjoyed them.

Science

Children in year 6 have been learning about nutrition. They learnt about the five food groups and why it is important to have a balanced diet. Each child put together a meal, using all five food groups.

P.E.

 In PE this term year 6 are learning to play tennis. We have started off by throwing and hitting the ball accurately and learning about the different ways to hit a ball. Some of us found this quite tricky at first!

Rounders

Year 6 played Football Rounders on the field. It was wet, rainy and windy, but everyone was having fun.

The strongest players were Alisha for her kicking skills, Imogen for running three rounders and Teegan for catching the ball incredibly well. Some people need a little more practice, but all players are equally important. As people say there is no I in TEAM.  

Everyone had a great time.

Design & Technology

In Design and Technology, Y6 have been creating their own healthy recipes. They had to decide on a healthy meal or food, cost the ingredients on a supermarket website and then make and evaluate their products.

Some children chose to make healthy lollies from fruit whilst others made fruit and chicken kebabs!
