Which drinks are bad for our teeth? #WerringtonSTEM25-11-2020 | 17:09:58 | No Comments

Today Y6 set up an investigation to see what effect different drinks have on our teeth (especially if we don’t brush them!).

We used eggshells because they contain similar chemical compositions to the enamel of teeth.

We also had some great questions, such as, ‘are teeth bones?’

We can’t wait to see what the milk, water, orange juice and coke do to our eggshells over the coming days!

How does exercise affect our body? #WerringtonSTEM07-10-2020 | 15:16:24 | No Comments

Year 6 have been investigating the how exercise affects our bodies.

There was some excellent group work taking place and our ‘Together we Succeed’ motto was very evident!

Portraits: Walter Tull07-10-2020 | 15:03:52 | No Comments

During our ongoing art work – portraits of key historical figures – we have learned about Walter Tull.

Walter Tull was both a professional footballer player and a soldier during World War One.

Walter had to give up his career as a footballer to help out in the war, but he then became recognised as the first black officer to lead white British soldiers into battle.

Hearts #WerringtonSTEM05-10-2020 | 10:38:25 | No Comments

Year 6 had a fascinating time exploring a real animal heart during one of our science lessons! Pupils who wished to were able to hold it before Mr Hubbard & Mrs Walker dissected them for further investigation. It gave us a superb insight to the structure of a heart and we were able to make really strong connections to the work we’d done earlier in the term.

Thanks to Miss Turner for obtaining them for us!

Portraits: Key Historical Figures (The World Wars)05-10-2020 | 09:23:01 | No Comments

During our art sessions, we are exploring some of the key figures of WW1 & WW2. So far, we have focused on Anne Frank and Sir Winston Churchill. Here are some of our portraits:

Our next key figure will be Walter Tull who we have already started learning about.

Life Cycles of a Plant #WerringtonSTEM05-10-2020 | 09:15:53 | No Comments

In Year 6, we are investigating life cycles. We are starting by looking at the life cycle of a plant (broad bean) and will be observing any changes we notice to our broad bean seeds over the next couple of weeks. We will then compare the life cycle of a plant to that of different animals (including humans).

Optical Illusion Artwork25-06-2020 | 15:57:11 | No Comments

We have been super impressed with the artwork produced by our Y6 pupils this week! What has been particularly impressive though is how well they have persevered with the task as it was most certainly not a quick one! It did mean that not many of us finished – me included! However, we also found out that Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, Mona Lisa, took about four years to create so to get what we did done in a couple of afternoons is pretty good going. Quite a few of the children have taken their home to finish – we’d love to see what the final outcome is if you are happy to share!

Welcome back Y6!11-06-2020 | 14:16:12 | No Comments

This week we were delighted to welcome back a number of our Y6 pupils. The children have quickly got back into their stride and adapted quickly to the small changes we have had to make to keep everybody as safe as we possibly can.

My personal highlight has been watching the children chatting, playing, laughing and joking with each other at break times (whilst maintaining social distancing of course!).

A few of our pupils have even stated that they are particularly enjoying the space as they all currently have a table to themselves!

Gymnastic routines16-03-2020 | 15:31:12 | No Comments

In Y6, we have been working on our gymnastic sequences forĀ a number of weeks. Today was our final practice session. Next week, we will be recording our sequence using the iPads before evaluating them.

Here are some action photos for you to enjoy!

Making magnetometers! @ogdentrust #WerringtonSTEM #BritishScienceWeek202013-03-2020 | 15:38:48 | No Comments

As part of our British Science week activities, Y6 thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of making their very own magnetometers during our ‘Phizzi Practical’. The idea for our activity came from the Ogden Trust. It was a great challenge and involved lots of maths skills, problem solving, teamwork and communication but we are pretty happy with the results! You can view some photos of our pupils taking part in the activity below.
