So far this year ...
Our first topic was Blood Heart. We all had a fantastic time discovering how the heart works and what makes up the circulatory system. The journey of the blood to the lungs and then around the body was the basis of a non-chronological report.
We even made our own 'blood' and were able to identify the four layers before researching their functions.
Caving at Porth Yr Ogof caves.
Canoeing on the canal
Our final day at the beach
Our second topic of the year is 'The Victorians'
We began the term with a surprise Victorian day. The children had no idea that they would become Victorian school children for the morning.
They were able to experience learning times tables by rote,drill, being 'caned' and wearing the dunce's hat, while adhering to the strict rules imposed by the teachers and TAs. Referring to adults only as Ma'am or Sir was just one of the many rules inflicted on Year 6. We had a visit from the Headteacher who also stood by the Victorian values, leading to an afternoon of letter writing in order to explain to Mr Spooner why they didn't want the Victorian ways enforced permanently.
