This week

This week has been a really fantastic week for Y5/6. All the children have made a real effort to make the right choices and be noticed for all the right reasons. I was left with no choice but to offer the class with reward time at the end of the week for their fabulous effort. Well done Y5/6!

In geography, we explored how fold mountains (like the Alps) were created. We know that this took millions of years but we sped up the process with our playdoh tectonic plates to see what really happened.

In science, we have been exploring evolution and inheritance. Today, we have been learning about genetics including chromosomes, DNA and dominant and recessive genes. We made our own chromosomes and DNA from craft materials.
