The children in Year 6 had a fantastic morning with the engineering company, Leonardo.
After being split into teams, the children had the opportunity to construct towers using marshmallows and spaghetti - the tallest tower, which measured 75cm, won the challenge! To encourage team work even more, the children were challenged to design a model car which would move by itself using a balloon. The children loved this challenge and came up with some fantastic models. They had a race to decide the wainner and I believe the winning car is actually still going!! Overall an inventive morning with our fantastic Year 6s.
The children in year 6 enjoyed a day learning about different careers. They took part in several activities such as: job Top Trumps, pictionary and speed dating. They asked several fantastic questions; they behaved impeccably and were able to reflect at the end of the day.
The Human Heart
The children in Year 6 enjoyed finding out about the four chambers of the heart today. After discussing the different vocabulary and seeing a computer generated heart in motion, the children had the chance to draw and label their own heart before making a working model of a heart in the outdoor classroom.
Tring Museum and College Lakes
The children in Year 6 enjoyed two trips today as a treat for all the hard-work they put in towards their SATs. First, we took a tour around Tring Natural History Museum where the children enjoyed looking at facts about the different animals there and even spending some time sketching them.
After lunch, we all boarded the coaches again and visited the beautiful bird sanctuary at College Lakes. We split off into smaller groups and visited the different bird hides around the lakes. Luckily the weather had cleared up by this time and the children were able to walk the whole way around the lake taking in the sights as they went.
The staff from the Natural History Museum and College Lakes praised our children for their fantastic manners and consideration towards others during the trip.
Well done Year 6, we are very proud of you.
Mr Mellett, Mrs Varnals and Ms Cosgrove
Like the rest of Year 6, 6C are working extremely hard in preparation for sitting their SATs in May. As the day fast approaches, the children can be seen here writing a draft of their persuasive newspaper report about reducing food waste.
