Year 6 Out and About
Last week on Thursday afternoon Year 6 spent a wonderful afternoon in Walpole Park, playing games and eating ice-creams in celebration of the end of SATs week. It was a well deserved break, Year 6 worked confidently and calmly all through SATs week, taking everything in their stride. Well done Year 6!
Yesterday, the year group headed off to the Natural History Museum, seeking to learn more about our extreme earth and the animal classification system. Exploring the mammal, reptile, amphibian, fish and bird galleries gave the pupils lots of insight into the scientific grouping of living things, a topic we are studying in science this term. The Earthquake and Volcanoes exhibition provided lots of opportunities for hand on geography experience - including an exciting chance to experience what it might feel like in a real earthquake!
At the end of the day we were treated to a show all about volcanoes and earthquakes, we were taught how to recognise the signs of an impending volcanic erruption so that we could save Volcano Town from being destroyed.
If you would like to know more about our visit do ask a Year 6 pupil, or have a look at the latest Year 6 photo album.
