Year 6 Teaching and Learning Showcase
Everyday during January, edstart have provided a task for the children to complete known as The edstart Daily Challenge where children have taken part and competed against themselves.
We have been using The Secret of Black Rock to create our own version by chunking sections and focusing on key aspects whilst deepening the moment.
Children are back at home but it hasn't stopped some extraordinary effort by some of our passionate pupils! As part of history, the children informed that they would like to know more about some key famous figures during our World War 2 topic. As we started at the beginning of the war and have learnt about Winston Churchill through discussion, chronologically it makes sense to evidence Neville Chamberlain where the children created a chronological report about him.
ProStrike entered the building and our pupils entered the challenge by kicking the ball as hard as they can to measure their shooting speed. They were amazing sportspersons and collecting over £1000 towards the cause. Outstanding! Below is one of our Y6 pupils hitting at a staggering 36mph.

Looking into healthy living and wellbeing, Y6 had to put food choices into some order of their own where they created they ended up creating a healthy food pyramid without realising.
