Year 6

Welcome to Year 6
 
Year 6 started off the year with their confidence building camp experience at Knapp House. Everyone had a brilliant time going out of their comfort zone in all the activities and enjoying a bonding experience together. 
Our project this term is 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt. ....A Stone Age Quest.' The first bear we found was the skull of a huge brown bear that was found in Banwell Bone Cave and is now in a museum in Somerset. We enjoyed being shown round the Bone Cave by John and Yvonne. 
We went up to Banwell Woods and collected wood for making fires to see how they lived in the StoneAge. We sat around the fire and listened to the first chapter of Wolf Brother.
Our next trip was to Wild Place where we visited all the animals and were given a workshop about Wolf Behaviour and we could see these magnificent creatures close at hand.

Our favourite subject is science. We tried to identify different rocks by testing them with vinegar. As a class we love doing experiments and have been separating mixtures and seeing how long different substances take to dissolve. 
We were also invited to climb the many stairs to the top of the St Andrew's Church tower and the view from the top was stunning. We saw the clock mechanism and the bells in the tower.
