Welcome to Class 14!

Class teachers - Mrs Pearson and Mrs Baron

Hello and welcome to class 14. We are pleased to welcome all of our year 6 children into our class and hope that they have enjoyed their first few days. The children are settling well and are becoming prepared for the year ahead.

Watch out for photos from our first week in Year 6 coming up very soon. 

In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to speak to us regarding your child, please do not hesitate to come in and

see us.

 

Thank you

What are Microbes?

 

 

As part of Class 14's 'thinking scientfically' lessons, we have ben learning about micro-organisms and microbes. Last week, we made 3 different types of microbes - bacterium, virus and fungus using materials they were provided with.

This week, we have been focusing on useful microbes. We learnt that bread dough rises through the action of helpful fungus known as yeast.

 

Here are our Year 6 children, carrying out an investigation using our 'observation' skills to see how useful microbes help bread dougn rise.

Fun with FUNDA
During today's session, our Year 6 children had to 'think outside the box'.  Children had to solve a number of problems using resources around them as well as the other children in their group.  This really tested their resourcefulness and ability to work as a team.  At the end of the lesson, the children were given instructions to a challenge which they need to solve ready for next week's lesson....good luck Year 6 and remember......all of you need to get to the other side of the river using only your hoops - the challenge has been set!
