To celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday we had tea and scones this afternoon! How delightful!
On Monday we began our topic about the Heart and the body. So that we kicked off with a bang, the class dissected a lamb’s heart to find out what the heart felt like and see what chambers and vessels it was made up of.
Bravely Year 6 cut open the hearts with blood on their hands and no one decided that they couldn’t do it.
Here are some photos – be warned some are gross!
Once again Year 6 have shown that they are talented artists at the end of the term as we looked at pointillism.
Linked to our topic, everyone (including Mr Waywell and Mrs Whitmore) had to find a photo of an animal and then draw their own version. We then used cocktail sticks, pencils and paint brushes to colour in the animals and the backgrounds using small dots of colour.
Here are the results…aren’t they great!
This month’s walking club was around Beacon Fell.
Though many of our members have visited the fell before, this walk was around the bottom of the fell – and was VERY muddy!
Along the way we:
- Walked, slipped, fell, jumped and got stuck in mud!
- Scared lots of lambs (not on purpose)
- Watched Lucy get very wet
- Had a picnic under a tree (in a muddy field)
- Played man-hunt
- Bought ice-creams
Again another brilliant Sunday! Roll on May’s walk!
