Thursday 12th September 2019 - PE - Reach Outdoors: Coasteering

 

Coasteering is an exhilarating, combined rock and water activity that Year 6 have loved! Catered to every individual level, this activity is suitable for those with no fear of heights or water as well as those who may not be quite so confident.  During their Coasteering trip, Hawks experienced rock climbing and scrambling techniques, as well as how to jump from heights into the sea safely. Wearing sturdy footwear, wet suits, buoyancy aids and helmets, Hawks traveled along the Fishcombe Cove section of the coastline; sometimes swimming in the sea, sometimes scrambling on rocks and jumping from rocks into the sea. They all had a fantastic afternoon and even spotted some seals!

Tuesday 10th September 2019 - Maths - Comparing Large Numbers

 

Today, we played a card game with our learning partners to show our understanding of comparing large numbers. We each had 10 cards and one at a time, we turned over a card and chose where to place it. The goal was to make the largest number possible. We got quite competitive towards the end! 

Thursday 5th September 2019 - Maths - Place Value

 

Today, we looked at large number's and talked to each other about the different values of the digits. We then went on to multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000. We used the Maths equipment to help us show our understanding, as well as using the large number within a number story. 

Transition Day

In July, we had a great transition day together. We worked so hard in our Writing and Art sessions that we have already completed a display ready for September.
