AUTUMN TERM 2018

 

The Year 6 team are ready for action.

Mr Fisher, Mrs Kiddell, Mrs Martin, Mrs Skinner and Mrs Wade, will lead the children through the excitement and perils of the final chapter of Northwood life.

 

Already 3 days of 'Team Building Activities' have been planned with the aim to make the children more aware that Year 6, in particular, involves lots of co-operation and working together towards common goals. 

TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES

 

Place the pen as far over the line as possible without touching over the line.

Crossing the river - don't touch the ground !

Cross the Minefield - We were blindfolded and guided by the directions of a team mate !

Helium Stick - Without anyone losing touch with the stick, lower it to the ground.

Marshmallow and Spaghetti Towers - Build the tallest 'free-standing' tower

Some other areas of study that are coming your way.

 

Light and Shadows

Living Things and their Habitats

World Geography

British History through the Ages

Mood and Atmosphere in Art

 

PE is on Thursdays for Year 6, but please ensure that correct PE kit is in school all the time, in case we feel like some extra 'brain-boosting' exercise on a different day.

The Mathletics and Reading Eggs programs are up and running, so log in and practise some Maths and Reading whenever you can.
