I’m a Year 6, get me out of here!
Today Year 6 did fantastically undertaking a lot of outdoor challenges to begin our new theme. We created amazing head-dresses or garlands so our tribes could recognise us; we built shelters using natural materials and gathered resources that we could find; we cooked over tea-lights and even had to work together to find 20 hidden letters on map. One team managed to find all 20!
Finally, we finished the day roasting marshmallows and attempting a one-match-challenge-some of the tribes were very successful and managed to keep our fire going for some time.
Our Learning this Term
We will be reading Kensuke’s Kingdom in English, continuing our theme of being both stranded and lost. Throughout theme, as well as looking at islands and their geography, we will be focusing on Japan, its culture and as we get close towards Christmas, decorations! We will be learning some basic Japanese and be looking at ways of writing in Japanese.
We look forward to a really exciting term of learning.
