Mrs Hodson - Year 6 Teaching Assistant

Welcome to Year 6 - we are really looking forward to having you all as leaders of our school and we cannot wait to see what you achieve in the coming year. 

Testing our bridges

Today we made our bridge designs come to life, we thought about triangulations and suspension and how we could strengthen paper to make it stronger. Some of our bridges held over 1KG of weight and some of us showed great resilience when things got tough! Well done Year 6. 

 

MEET THE TEACHERS MEETING FOR YEAR 6

MONDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER AT 3PM IN THE SCHOOL HALL! 

COME ALONG TO FIND OUT ALL ABOUT WHAT THIS YEAR HOLDS FOR YOUR CHILD!

If you are unable to attend please see the PDF below which shows some of the information we shared at the meeting. 

THE FIRST WEEK IN YEAR 6

What a start to Year 6 our pupils have had! All of our work has been based on the book "SOMEONE BUILDS THE DREAM" by Lisa Wheeler and Loren Long. We have learnt about famous bridges around the world and we have completed some paired challenges on making strong bridge structures. We have worked together to design our own bridges and next week, we will build these and test them to see whose is the strongest! 

All of the staff in Year 6 have been so impressed with how well the children have settled back in to school. They have been very well-behaved, well-mannered and have worked fantastically well with each other on the challenges. Check out some of the pictures below!
