Hengistbury Head

Year 6 had glorious weather for their trip to Hengistbury Head today. They investigated coastal defences and features, as well as plotting the geography of the local Bournemouth area, considering wildlife and habitats within the park and learning some additional history relating to their evolution topic.

Tomorrow’s World

Year 6 began their topic about the future with a Dragon’s Den inspired WOW day yesterday. The children were put into small groups and set the challenge of inventing and marketing a new product that would make a teacher’s life easier. They then had to pitch their idea to ‘The Dragons’. The winning group designed an app that would scan writing and identify spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. Yes please!

Ukuleles

Year 6 began their Ukulele lessons with Mrs Murray today. These sessions will not only teach the basics of playing a stringed instrument, but will also cover musical notation and inter-dependence when playing as part of an ensemble.
