Y6 Class News – 24.3.23

Spring 2 wk 4 Update

Science – ‘Battle of the beaks’.  As part of our work on Evolution the children investigated how different birds have adapted different types of beaks in order to make the most of the food available to them in their habitat.  We simulated how effective different beaks types were at eating a wide range of foods in order to better understand how adaptation helps an animal to survive and then thrive in its habitat.

Galapagos Giant Tortoise

CONGRATULATIONS To all the children in Y6 as they became the proud ‘adoptive’ parents of a Galapagos Giant Tortoise. Our donation to the Galapagos Conservation Trust will work towards the continued protection of these astonishing creatures, which are unique to the islands.

English. We have begun to plan a non-chronological report on the Galapagos islands. We have researched the islands and their landscape, some incredible animals, which are found there, and some of the threats the islands face.  Our aim is to create a factual and informative report to help people understand these incredible islands a little better.


PE. We continued playing Netball this week, with some very competitive and exciting matches between the house groups in each class.  The games were very close and the children remembered so many of the rules, strategies and techniques used in the game. Unfortunately the weather got the better of us and we had to postpone the final few matches until next week!

Maths. This week we have explored perimeter, area and volume. Please ask your child the formulas they have learned to help them with their maths; they should be able to identify 5 methods (1 for perimeter, 3 for area and 1 for volume). These formulas will be used in secondary school so it is worth testing one another’s memory and accuracy using them this weekend!
