Hunting for Fossils

Year 6 enjoyed an hour of fossil hunting today - trying to extract chocolate chips from the cookies! It was a slow and delicate process!

Fascinating Fossils

Year 6 enjoyed their fossil talk from Mrs Howe today. We will be learning more about fossils in the coming weeks so can't wait to get started. It was exciting being able to touch the fossils and see them first hand.



Wind Power

In light of all our work on Zimbabwe, Year 6 were designing alternative energy sources today including the use of wind turbines. Have a look at the making process and also our finished products!

Water Carriers

Year 6 had to carry water as people do in Zimbabwe. They completed the daily mile route but found carrying the water hard going and keeping all the water tricky!

They also attempted to clean dirty water. Ask the children about what filtering material was best - the results shocked us all!

Meccano builds inventive brains!

Year 6 were lucky today and used their Science, Engineering, Technology and Maths skills to build Meccano. The school was lucky enough to receive £400 worth of Meccano for free and Year 6 took great pleasure in testing it for everyone!

So much problem solving and co-operation happened this afternoon!

A new class 6!

Today, Year 6 have been looking at differences between species. They were given green for the body, yellow for the features and white for hair. They were asked to create a living thing from their items. Look how different they all are! I think year 6 enjoyed themselves!

Tree Planting

As part of the Woodland Trust Plant a Tree day, Year 6 organised for years 1 and 2 to plant our trees.

57 trees were planted around the school grounds. Grass was removed, soil dug over, holes dug, trees planted, canes put in to support and protective covers were put around the new saplings.

Hopefully many of the trees will take hold and grow with the classes who planted them!

Thursday 21st November - Stir Fry Group 1

Our first group went shopping today, buying the ingredients for a stir fry. They stuck to their budget and cooked a delicious stir fry which was eaten and enjoyed by all! Not a mouthful left for very hungry teachers!

After, we moved onto the beach to complete a scavenger hunt, games and mosaic designing.

Southend Museum and Beecroft Art Gallery 3.10.19

Year 6 enjoyed their trip to Southend Museum and the Beecroft Art Gallery today.

The Southend Museum was exhilarating to look around. We learnt about many eras in time. This trip has inspired our class to make their museum in a shoe box. Looking at the artefacts and exhibitions has opened our eyes to the world.
By Jered
The Beecroft Gallery was amazing to look around. It made our morning special, it even inspired us to make our own shoe box museum. The art therapy by children was impeccable. It opened our eyes to what some children feel when in care. It was great to see.

Big thanks for the little bugs!

Year 6 would like to say a thank you to Mrs Bradford-Hughes' mum for her generous donation of the insect/beetle collections. They loved looking at the details of each bug and it ties in wonderfully with our book, 'Beetle Boy'.

Beetle blood!

Today, year 6 made beetle blood! They found that when you imparted warmth/energy on the mixture, it turned into a solid. If you let the mixture just settle on your hand, it became a liquid.

Some in year 6 related this to Newton's laws! Everyone had fun!

Hello, hello, hello - what's going on here then?

Year 6 have enjoyed a detective day! Firstly, we had to investigate a messy classroom, looking for evidence. In the afternoon, we looked at our fingerprints, footprints and analysed handwriting to give us clues.
