Problem of the Week

Have a go at this problem over half term. Can you find all possible outcomes?

Space - a final frontier

Using mathematical equipment, the children were asked to draw two planets before using a mixture of paints and a dry brush to create a paint stippling affects and create both the surface of these -planets as well as the atmosphere in outer space.

Space - a final frontier
Focus Week- Space The Final Frontier

Year 6 really enjoyed using virtual reality headsets to journey through space and learn lots of new facts about the planets within our solar system. Children were able to compare each planet to earth and it gave them a fantastic insight into how other planets are different from earth.

National Fitness Day in Year 6

Today as part of National Fitness the children took part in a 30 minute Joe Wicks primary school workout. The children worked incredibly hard encouraging each other all the way and showed real grit and determination to push themselves to the limit.

National Fitness Day in Year 6

Date Given: Wednesday 27th September 2017    Due Back: Monday 2nd October 2017

Today is World Fitness Day

L.C. to develop a new exercise sequence to support people in getting fit and healthy



- Think about which muscle groups you would like to exercise.

- Use your scientific and sporting knowledge to make sure there is a rise in heart rate

- Make it as unique as possible; maybe you could film yourself completing the sequence or construct a how to guide.

Polite reminder: can all children with

outstanding Robin Wood forms please

return them AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Breaking news - New solar system discovered

Tuesday 26th September 2017 After hearing about the discovery f the new solar system that orbit Trappist - 1, the children wrote fabulous news paper articles and then applied this knowledge to create iMovies - I think you'll agree we have some potential broadcasters of the future.

September 25th - What a fabulous start to our 'Space - the FInal Frontier' Focus Week. Following a super launch assembly, the Year 6s worked out that our planet from the newly discovered solar system has many similiar features to Uranus. They used inference and prior knowledge to work out the clues that were given. 

Check in tomorrow to see where our learning takes us. 
A reminder to all children that from 4pm Friday -9pm Sunday there is a battle of the bands on TT Rockstars. Who will come out on top 6L or 6J? Keep on rocking.
Maths Challenge 18.9.17

The children in 6J started their week by having a go at this problem from Nrich. They worked out that you needed to have two odd numbers and two even numbers that were positioned opposite each other in the number ring to make sure all the differences were odd. The next challenge is to explore how to make all answers to in the ring an even number and what happens if we use addition instead of subtraction? Would all the numbers still be even? Have fun investigating.

TT Rockstars is here!

This week has seen the launch of the new and exciting maths website and app TT Rockstars in school. TT Rockstars is a great way for children to have fun with their times tables whilst increasing their confidence. Children will be using TT Rockstars in school but we would also like to encourage children to log on at home and play along with their Rockstar.


Keep On Rocking

Maths Challenge 4.9.17

Each week we will be publishing a weekly maths challenge for all children to have a go at both in school and at home. One of the main reasons we use challenge tasks is because they provide opportunities for all children to work like mathematicians. While the content within these tasks can be quite simple, the level of thinking required is sophisticated. In this way, challenge tasks fit very well with the aims of the primary mathematics National Curriculum of fluency, reasoning and problem-solving. Developing problem-solving skills provides valuable opportunities for children to think mathematically. We look forward to seeing what solutions the children can come up with
