6 Curie Bike Ability

Week Beginning 24th September - Somerville are in the driving seat as it were as they hone their biking skills to become more proficient on the roads!

STEM week (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Seeing as Year 6 could not visit space (the rockets were all booked), we used toilet roll as a guide to find the relative distances between each planet and the Sun.

Year 6 Accelerated Reader Competition. Each class is working as a team to read and embrace the Accelerated Reader scheme. An incentive is that the class with the highest word count at the end of the term will be able to nominate a Year 6 teacher for a forfeit. Last year saw Mr Tucker complete the ice bucket challenge. Mr Sohal had to dress up a as a woman and sing a nursery rhyme. Mr Thorpe had to eat as many dry crackers as he could in an allotted amount of time and Miss Giles was the recipient of a custard pie in the face! Please encourage your children to read. These are the results so far for the end of the week (Thursday 18th October)

STEM Week continues with the children having the privilege of a number of guest speakers. Year 6 were fortunate to the have the company of Mr Davies on Wednesday afternoon who talked about his links with Science and Maths. He discussed the use of Radar and Space and one class had the opportunity to do some spy work by cracking codes.

Beat the Flood! Year 6 were given the brief of creating a flood resistant house using only a select number of materials. The houses had to be sturdy yet lightweight and economically built.

Week beginning 1st October. Turing's turn as they safely navigate the streets of Bushmead!

SPAG Resources. As part of our on-going literacy, year 6 have been incorporating spelling, grammar and punctuation activities within literacy lessons as revision and preparation for SATs. Please have a look at the following powerpoint which includes these activities and would be a great staring point as revision for your child.
