Heathrow Coding Challenge

The year sixes were very lucky to have some special visitors from Heathrow Airport.  They set us a coding challenge in groups of three. We had to work as a team to finish many tasks for example coding five trucks on scratch to make them move into their correct positions and doing a maths challenge.

 

It was great fun and the winners won a prize, also getting a handshake with the visitors from Heathrow airport. They also got a picture taken with them. We were taught how different types of cargo had to be delivered.

 

Over all, it is highly  recommended by the year sixes. We really enjoyed it and  can’t wait  for you to try it out. We hope that  you will also have as much fun as we did.

Year 6 residential

On Friday 8th of June 2018, 54 kids went on an extraordinary once in a lifetime trip to a place called Gaveston Hall.  I went on the trip with some of my friends – Diana, Beatrix, Rebecca and Amelia – and had the best time of my life.  I loved it so much, I forgot about my family.

First let me talk about the rooms.  If you look online the cabins look way too small and ugly but when you go there its so beautiful (other than the spiders, daddy long legs and mosquitos).  Once you clean up and set the beds, its the best, well I don’t know about the boys.  I was sharing a room with Diana, Beatrix, Rebecca, Sjyan, Shanaia and Preety and it was kinda fun.

Now we can talk about the IN2Action staff.  The staff were the best thing about the trip.  All of them were kind, funny and awesome.  There was little Liam, Demi (Pinky), Crazy Luke (looks exactly like the Jedi in Star Wars), Becky, Shane B (Nanny McFee – very big nose), Shane, Martha, Cheeky Charlie and Clara (butterfly girl).  If you go on the trip you will love them all – I guarantee it!

The activities we did were:  Archery, Tree climbing, hoverboarding, Aeroball, bush craft, sensory adventure, low ropes, Olympics, camp fire, night time forest hike  and many more.

I am positive you are gonna love it!

THE BUILD-UP TO SATs

In Year 6,we have been revising topics so that we are ready for our SAT s. We have been working extremely hard.  SAT s is something that sounds difficult  but the teacher’s support makes it easy and fun.

Every Year 6 child knows that they can achieve their goal and pass their test with success. SAT s is something that you should look forward to and not be scared off.  Are you going to pass ?

We do  some 10-minute tests every week to help us improve and it helps a lot.

Q: How do you get straight A’s?
A: By using a ruler!

Things we get here easily. I hope you learn more about  Fairtrade.

Heart Dissection

Before Christmas, in December, Year Six were dissecting lamb hearts.

We had to work in groups of three and cut open the heart. Each group got one lamb heart. Then, we had to watch a video of a woman who dissected a heart all the way through. We will share with you some experience  that we had.

Victoria: My group had me, Shakira and Diana in it. I was the person who mostly did the cutting because I had lots of experience. Miss Antoniou took some pictures of us and here is a picture of my group: 

Jesica: In my group I had me, Elizabeth and Amelia. I did most of the cutting, just like Victoria, because I love dissecting. One thing I hated was the smell. It smelt like moldy cheese. Here is a picture of my group: 

It was very fun and impressive to the teachers. I hope we do something like this again!
