Mrs Turner – Grylls Class
Welcome To Bear Grylls Class!
We have decided to be Bear Grylls class this year. We chose this name because we felt that he is very inspirational because of all the things that he has achieved so far. He has also shown that he never gives up and is always ready to take on a challenge, and we thought that these were 2 important values for us to try to follow. For example, did you know that he broke his back in 3 places after a parachuting accident, but only 18 months later, he managed to climb Mount Everest?
We have all settled in well to our new class, and are ready for the the challenges of Year 6.
This half term we have enjoyed a trip to Fyne Court to gather some ideas for a portal story that we will be writing after half term. We have also enjoyed doing some Science experiments to see how nutrients move around the body.
Congatulations to the following children who have been chosen to be ambassadors for the school: Amy, Abi and Livia.
Geography Group Work.
In our Topic lessons, we have been studying the major mountain ranges from around the world. Each group carried out research on a different mountain range, before producing a poster that was then presented to the rest of the class. The finished posters are shown below:
For Remembrance Day, we did some poppy-inspired artwork using chalks and charcoal pencils. Our work is shown below:
In our DT lessons, we have been designing bridges. We then constructed them out of wood, using saws and glue guns, before we painted them. Our finished designs are shown below:
