Year 6 Explore Earth

Year 6 have certainly had a sensational start tot he new term with lots of 'sticky' learning taking place. On Tuesday 8th January we immersed ourselves into our new text 'Brightstorm' by Vashti Hardy. Our activities included folding our own sky-ships from origami, making our own compasses out of corks,needles and magnets, using co-ordinates to find our way around the 'The Great Wide' and creating some lovely pieces of sky-ship art.

On Wednesday 9th we have been on a whistle stop tour of Earth's natural phenomenons; earthquakes, tsunamis,volcanoes and hurricanes! 
The children created their own models of tsunamis and volcanoes, built and tested earthquake proof building and recorded live news reports during hurricane winds! A fantastic couple of days in school which have got the children ready for the some great learning this term.
