Woodlouse Choice Chambers 

6B enjoyed an interesting afternoon building a choice chamber for woodlice. The children designed and built the choice chambers having decided upon either a light v dark habitat or dry v damp. We then went out to the field to collect the woodlice and let them explore their new (temporary) home. We recorded their behaviour over a set period of time and will use this data in our science reports which will be written this week. The woodlice were safely returned to their original habitat at the end of the afternoon. 

6B enjoyed playing fraction games with their partner. We have been learning how to compare and order fractions including how to find common denominators. Everyone has worked really hard - keep up the good work!

Some examples of the work 6B have been working on this term

Mrs Scott kindly brought in her extensive and fascinating fossil collection for the children to share. 6B become fossil detectives for the afternoon and enjoyed analysing the fossils and discussing their thoughts. They all handled the fossils respectfully and with due care and attention - and, of course, everyone washed their hands before and after. 

Fascinating Fossils

Mr Archer has been teaching 6B all about paradox sketches and they have loved having a go! All of the children have made numerous attempts and have produced some fantastic sketches.

Hard at work

Amelia and Melanie are now super confident at using long division.

Merry showing why, our mathematical friend, Colin was wrong.
