Week 10 in Y6 (Nov 18th)

Week 10 in Y6 (Nov 18th)

The week after High Borrans and what an anti-climax! We had to start off with a maths assessment but things soon started looking up…

The school was visited by some of our Erasmus partners from Italy, Lithuania & Poland and they spent an afternoon in Y6 watching a science lesson.  We learned about how CO2 emissions are creating the so-called “greenhouse effect” leading to global warming and climate change.  Y6 scientists came up with ways to deal with raised sea-levels and the increased risk of flooding by investigating the effects of floods in the Endswall Valley.  They were given a budget of £100,000 per town to spend on flood defences – with varying degrees of success…

Our foreign guests appeared to enjoy getting involved with the challenges presented to the pupils and one teacher commented that it wasn’t simply a science lesson, but a science-geography-maths-technology-English lesson.  And indeed it was, proving the Creative Curriculum is alive & well in Y6.
