Year 6

As detailed on the December Newsletter, 9 boys

were put through to the National Finals of the Primary Mathematics Chal-

lenge. 72,000 children were entered and only 33 received a gold medal.

Well done to all the boys for participating in this challenge and for doing

your best and to the following 3 boys for their great success!

To complete our Rainforest

Topic the boys worked in

groups of three or four to

make giant rainforest animals

from wicker. This was a great

team building activity and we

are looking forward to display-

ing the finished products

around the school grounds.

The Year 6 boys enjoyed learning the skills

of debating when doing this topic. Each

group took on a role of a group of people

who are effected, either positively or nega-

tively, by deforestation. The boys were pas-

sionate and articulate and worked well to-

gether on this.

Primary Mathematics Challenge

To understand which household products

come from the Rainforest, the boys had a

tasting session in school, before raiding their

cupboards at home to see just how much we

use in our daily lives comes from the Rainfor-

est. The boys tasted guava juice, pineapple,

coconut and mango.

Bikeability Week

During the last week of the Easter term, the boys took part

in Bikeability, all boys passed level 1 on the first day and

are now out on the roads!
