Trip to the Museum of Science and Industry
On Tuesday 14th March, we had a wonderful time at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester! This fit into our theme, "A World of Bright Ideas" and the children were able to get some hands-on experience with some scientific revolutions!
Here is a link to SATs resources that you might find useful:
Year 6 Spring 2 Spellings Overview
PE is now on a Tuesday with Commando Joe and on a Friday with the 6S team. Please make sure you have the correct PE kit in school on both days.
In the first couple of weeks of Spring 1 the children revisited invasion games and practised the skills of attacking and defending. Here are a few photo's of what they got upto.
We are currently embracing the love of reading for pleasure, and as such are enjoying being read to by your children every day in school. For this to continue - please ensure your child brings their reading book to school every day and take every opportunity to listen to them read at home too. This could be reading to grown-ups or even sharing a bedtime story with a younger sibling.

THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
We are currently learning about the circulatory system and the different components of blood. To help the children visualise what this might look like, we made blood using a range of household items, including; food colouring, cereal, mini marshmallows and water! Who knew blood could be so tasty!

WHITE BLOOD CELL SUPERHEROES
The children have been getting creative to showcase their understanding of how white blood cells act as 'superheroes' in our bodies, keeping us healthy by fighting viruses and bacteria.

Although it wasn't Sunday, Year 6 walked to Bolton town hall for the annual remembrance of those who fought in the wars.
As part of our theme topic 'War of the Worlds' we enjoyed a trip to the Imperial War Museum in Manchester. We saw thousands of genuine artifacts from the war. It was fascinating!
