Pond Dipping at the Soanes Centre

 

 

Children in Year 6 explored aquatic fauna and flora in a pond dipping session. They explored the adaptation of freshwater invertebrates to their natural habitat by examining pond animals using magnifying glasses and binocular microscopes. In addition, they used classification keys to identify the invertebrates. In school, they wrote instructions on how to pond dip.

We’ve had a fantastic first day with activities such as abseiling and the mini Olympics. We are all back in rooms getting ready for our first night’s sleep.

Day 2

Children having a fantastic time with all the fun activities.

Chessington!

Year 6 had the best time on their end-of-year trip to Chessington World Of Adventures Resort. The sun was shining, the rides were stomach-churning and the laughter was never-ending. Next day, we also wrote some pretty thrilling recounts of the Vampire Ride. What a treat for all the hard work this year! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

World of Work in Year 6

For World of Work week, Year 6 had a visit from a Management Consultant and a Pharmacist. They both gave us an insight about their profession and how they manage their workload. They spoke about the challenges they faced and how they persevered. The children took part in a small activity to match the name of the medicine to its function. They asked relevant questions to find out more information about our visitors and their job roles.

Year 6 pizzaiolos making their own pizzas

Year 6 attended a workshop in Pizza Express. We learnt about the origins and the ingredients of Pizza Margherita and then turned into pizzaiolos and prepared our very own, delicious pizzas! On our way home, we stopped at Brick Lane to admire the lamp posts that we helped to design earlier this year. What a fantastic trip!

  

 

Parliament

Year 6 visited The Houses of Parliament. We had a tour around the premises and were given the opportunity to see The House of Commons and The House of Lords in action! Furthermore, we took part in a fun and interactive workshop. We used this experience to write a recount.
