First we did some orienteering. We searched for boxes scattered around the school ground. We were put into groups and searched for the seven boxes. Each group had a box with a named continent. We had to unscrew the boxes and find out what creature was inside. Each box also had a note with a different job we had to do e.g. create a shelter for our creature. Our job was to create a camouflage shelter where it was protected from predators. We had so much fun!

Our note said we had to make jewellery for our animal. We used a saw to cut a section of wood off a stick and drill a hole through the middle. We then attached some string through it to turn into a necklace. We had loads of fun and I loved using the tools to make our necklaces. We wore protective glasses and gloves to keep safe.
Class 6 have been testing absorbency in materials. We came up with our prediction, a clear method and then carried out a fair test. After the excitement of the experiment, we then wrote a conclusion outlining our results. All done without any water spillages!
Class 6 have been writing non-chronological reports about the Greek gods and goddesses. We have been using our Working Wall lots to help us with our writing.
Class 6 had an exciting (and wet!) afternoon on Tuesday 14th January with Mr Oakey. Outside, we built on our teamwork skills and made pyramids out of canes. We were then challenged to make bigger and even bigger pyramids by joining all of them together. Have a look at our photos to see the final pyramid!
We have started our new topic of the ancient Greeks and their legacy! First of all, we sequenced events in British history and placed the ancient Greeks in that. Then we looked more closely at events in ancient Greek history. We had to make sure that we got our sequencing correct for BC - it can be a bit tricky to get our heads around!
