Tomorrow's World Image

Our Topic this term is...
"Tomorrow's World"

Text messages, emails, websites, blogs and podcasts - there are so many ways to communicate.

Lean how to set up your own class blog and build a homepage on a subject of your choice. Suggest ways of improving your school website and hopefully the headteacher will listen to your ideas!

Discover the movers and shakers in the world of technology - the people who've shaped the modern world. Perhaps you might be a visionary for the next generation?

Build robots and circuits, break codes and investigate gadgets galore. Why not write a thriller narrative in the style of Anthony Horrowitz?

Then on request from MI99, build a website for a new Spy School. What pages will it need? One for gadgets? A secret lunch menu? you decide?

Let's start today on Tomorrow's World...

Some of the Year 6 children going to Five Acres High School had a surprise visit from Mr Jones today, who is the head of Year 7.

They got to ask lots of exciting questions about their new school! Well done all!

Year 6 Transition

As part of transition to secondary school, the Year 6 children are meeting weekly with Mrs Miller, Mrs Morgan and Kathryn to discuss how they are feeling about moving on to secondary school.

The first session was a real success and the children got to drink squash and eat lots of biscuits!

Knex Challenge

The children had a fantastic morning taking part in the Knex Challenge with Mo Follis. The children had to design a castle, which had modern day uses and a drawbridge.
