This afternoon we have used our measuring and observing skills to find out about the effect of upthrust on objects. We chose different objects from around the classroom and used a Newton metre to measure the weight of them both in the air and in the water.
Today, some pupils went to Warwick University to take part in Lots of sciences workshops.
It was a very enjoyable day and all the pupils did the school proud with their behaviour and science knowledge.
This afternoon, Year 6 had a hula hoop workshop in the hall with John aka The Hoop Guy. He bought with him lots of larger hoops that made Hula Hooping easier, so easy in fact by the afternoon even Mr Connolly could Hula Hoop!
After Word Up Warm Up, to get us ready for exercise, John taught everyone how to Hula Hoop the correct way, even Mrs Bennett and Mrs McCarthy joined in! Once we learnt the basic stance, Year 6’s were taught lots of tricks you could do for Hula Hoop Dancing by John. We all had lots of fun and left the hall smiling, and red in the face from the exercise we had.
This term, Year 6 have been learning to play volleyball. It looked lots of fun and pupils were using lots of the 5 Keys in their lesson. Working together to learn to serve and play as a team. Perseverance – it wasn’t easy to serve and they had to practise how to serve over and over again.
I really enjoyed taking part even if I was hit in the face!
