Year 6

Maths Challenge March 2019

The children competed in pairs in a morning of rigorous maths problem-solving against other schools. They really enjoyed the event, which was held at Norwich School.

Year 6 have spent the first few weeks of term learning about the Galapagos Islands. We have learnt about the geography of the islands and why their eco-system is so special. We have also been studying the animals which inhabit the islands and identifying how they have adapted to their environment and how, over time, this has led to evolution. For example, the children found out that the Galapagos marine iguana is the only iguana that swims in the ocean and the saddleback tortoise (which can live to 150 years old) has a longer neck to help it stay cool and find food in dry conditions. We also laughed at the blue footed booby’s mating dance and watched baby iguanas escape from racer snakes!

Next, we’re going to learn about Darwin and his Theory of Evolution.

The Greeks!

Year 6 studied the Ancient Greeks during the spring term. We learned about their gods and myths, as well as looking at their cuisine and their influence on the modern Olympic Games. Our study culminated in hosting our own Greek Olympics with our freshly made tzatziki ready for our hungry and successful competitors.
