Science Week 2019
In Year 6 this week we have been focusing on our science skills! We have learnt a new science fact everyday and we have looked at the systems of the human body, paying particular attention to the circulatory system. We participated in an experiment involving measuring our heart rate and investigating which exercise caused our heart rate to increase the most. As well as this, we found out how the hard the heart works to keep all our blood pumping around our body - did you know that your heart beats on average 100,000 a day! What an amazing muscle! To make things even more exciting, real pig hearts were available for us to dissect and discuss, we were all looking forward to getting our hands on the hearts as you can see by our pictures.
Leader in Me
This term we are putting first things first and thinking win-win. This means that we always do what we have to do before doing what we want to do. We are developing our skills as problem solvers and trying to think about what others want not just what we want.
This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.
