Year 6 are self-isolating until Monday 30th November. But this has not stopped us! We have been doing our Science learning on Seesaw.
We found out this week about what carbon neutral means, and how we can make our homes more energy efficient (to stop us wasting so much energy).
Here is a slideshow showing just a few examples of the amazing learning that was done on Seesaw last week:
This term we have learnt so much! We have found out about different types of energy, types of fuel, how electricity is made, what global warming and Greenhouse Gases are…The list goes on! Paul created a quiz to help us check how much we can remember.You can try it out here: https://www.quiz-maker.com/QADYUUU72
On Wednesday we made our own presentations about the types of fuels we use to produce energy. Check out Althea’s from Dragon Class.
Althea did a presentation about renewable and non-renewable sources of energy.
Before we went outside we put our wellies and coats on. We got mixed up by the teachers into four groups. We explored the kitchen, and where things are in it. We also visited the chickens, guinea-pigs, the poly-tunnel (where we grow tomatoes), the rabbits and the pond.
We discovered a chicken’s egg in the compost, that the rabbits can bite us, and a red pepper growing in the poly-tunnel.
Here are some fun challenges to try during the summer holidays.
Any one can do them, but if you have a Children’s University Passport to Learning you can earn credits too. Just take photos of you doing the activity, or keep a scrapbook, and show them to Mr Wickens in September to earn your stamps.
Don’t forget to sign up at your local library for the Space Race summer reading challenge- if you read 6 library books during the summer you earn a medal and can claim 6 hours in your Passport
Today, six of us took a trip to the University of East Anglia. We went to attend a very special Children’s University Graduation; it was special because all of us have completed more than 100 hours of extra-learning and have got over 100 stamps in our Passport to Learning!
We arrived at 9.30am and put our beautiful blue caps and gowns on. Then we took part in a ceremony that featured students telling us why university is so amazing, and a special Mad Science show from Dr DNA which was lots of fun! We all went up and collected our certificates and got a big clap. After that, we went out side and threw our hats in the air!
After lunch, we went on a tour of and got to see lots of cool parts of the campus- including the Avengers HQ!
