We had a fascinating morning with Dr Diana Davies learning all about life as an archaeologist in the rainforest, exploring maya artefacts, discussing and learning more about the achievements of the Maya and making our own calendar – we were able to make today’s date. We hope to have some of our learning on Dr Davies’ website shortly!
We have been busy investigating the effects of exercise on the body in Science. We have measured our breathing, pulse and heart rates at rest and designed our own experiments to investigate what happens when the type of exercise or the duration of the exercise are changed.
Well done Year 6 for your enthusiasm and effort today at the primary and secondary school singing workshop with Dominic Peckham. You worked really hard to learn the 5 performance pieces and sang beautifully. Here are a few photos of rehearsals, learning about breathing and the concert.
Here is the link to the presentation from the information evening on 10th October 2017.
We spent our final morning exploring the history of Carrisbrooke castle. We walked the walls, saw the castle’s defences and learnt about the important people and events linked to the castle. We met Jack, one of the working donkey’s, and saw how water was gathered from the well. Thank you parents for meeting and greeting us at the ferry terminal – it was a wonderful reception!
