Welcome to Ms Pateman's class!
Our next topic is... Sh! Top Secret!
Year 6 have started this topic with a question: can we parachute our spy behind enemy lines without a fatality happening? The spy in question is an egg-ceptional raw egg and only the most egg-cellent scientists will be able to use their skills learnt about air resistance to design and make a canopy both the right size and shape, as well as a supportive structure to carry the spy. What an egg-speriment!
During this topic, the children will be learning map-reading skills so they can meet a fellow secret agent at any landmark around the world. Year 6 will be writing their own spy chaptered story and our book study for the next few weeks will be the first book in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz: Stormbreaker.
PE will be gymnastics and dance on Mondays and indoor/outdoor games on Thursdays.
Our Year 6 swimming slot is Tuesday afternoon.
