Welcome to 6H

Welcome to the Summer Term and a warm 'Hello!' from Team 6H. 

Hello new term, hello new topic...

Springing into class after a well deserved Easter break, we were captured by the silhouette of a skyline...Now, those buildings and modes of transport really do look familiar. THIS IS LONDON!

Our first challenge came in the form of a postcode and clue frenzy. EC3A Pickle and SW1A 0AA Dong! were the hints that we had to work with. We've never been so relieved to discover a Gherkin in our lives...

 

Next up, the London underground riddle...

Trying to navigate the Tube can be a complex task even with the clearest of instructions...It's a good job we know our Victoria Line from our District Line! Tantalised by the challenge, we even made up some of our own riddles. Miss Healy became very competitive in trying to solve these...

 

You can't start a London topic without a classic photo in front of a traditional telephone box - phone calls to White Hart Lane, Stamford Bridge and the Emirates Stadium were quite taxing today!

 

We have had such a FANTASTIC start to our new topic - bring on the fun challenges ahead!

Hello from Space!  Greetings from 6H, the latest NASA recruits...

 

As we entered our dark classroom, our inquisitive eyes met a mysterious, glowing, star-covered box. Surrounding the box were white, powdery footprints, which abruptly ended at the classroom door. We were puzzled.

 

Bravely, we took it in turns to explore the 'clues' housed inside our new find. Alongside the air of cosmic music, cries of "Ooh, ahh, strange, odd, bizarre!" could be heard in response to each revealed item.

A photograph of a star; bottle stops adorned with symbols, numbers and lines; pictures of strange creatures and a packet of a space-dried Neapolitan ice-cream sandwich...

 

Then, we got the chance to meet this fine fellow...(we mean the red spiky creature on the wall, although Olivia is equally as fantastic!)

Ideas about our new topic started shooting through the sky like comets and meteoroids. This budding clan of astronauts had no doubt - SPACE, STARS AND ALIENS have landed! As for the spiky creature on the wall - we now know it as 'tHe LoSt ThInG', straight out of our new Literacy text written by Shaun Tann.

 

With the clues well and truly sussed, we set about answering a scientific

question.  How does the Solar System function and what is its impact? Using a

variety of research methods, art equipment and drama, we presented our

findings to the wonderful Year 3 children!
