What a phenomenal trip we had! After a long coach journey we arrived at Windsor, where we had lunch in Windsor Park. We then toured the famous Windsor Castle and got to see Henry 8th's resting place in St George's Chapel. After a short trip to our hotel we spent the evening bowling which was great fun! The next morning we enjoyed a hearty breakfast before another short trip to Harry Potter World. Whether you were a big Harry Potter fan or not, the tour of the studios wowed us all. Memories made! 
Today we had a visit from our local PCSO. She came to talk to us about staying safe this summer and when we start High School in September. She gave us lots of useful tips and answered our questions.

After creating our river models, we presented them at a rivers exhibition for Y3. We made them interactive to help teach Y3 about river features. Afterwards we took feedback and found out what Y3 had learned. Fun and interactive features received positive feedback, while teamwork and organisation were the points for improvement for some groups. We really enjoyed teaching Y3 and learning about rivers and ourselves!

What did we learn about rivers?

Science TASC: Can you create a model to teach a younger child about river formation?

As part of our topic on rivers, we have used the TASC approach to create a project. We have worked in groups to produce a model to teach younger children what we have learnt about rivers, their features and how they are formed. Next week we will hold an exhibition for the Year 3 classes to visit!

NRICH Maths Problem

NRICH Maths Problem 1
Mrs Baxter and Mr Moth’s maths group have worked on a very difficult maths problem today which really tested their skills of solving complex, multi-step problems. The room was filled with exceptional, high-level mathematical reasoning as pairs discussed their methods as calculations. Currently, NRICH doesn’t have any published solutions to this problem so we have submitted ours and hope to see them uploaded soon!

Science Week: Fixperts 

This week we have been ‘Fixperts’, using our design and enquiry skills to solve problems. Thanks to Intergen, Geoff came to visit our class to explain the problems he has due to back surgery. He told us about his difficulties and we thought of everyday jobs, that we take for granted, we could design an invention to help him with. We asked him lots of questions to gain a good understanding of what he would require and then we worked in groups to create an invention using materials from around school. There was some great learning and development of ideas, with excellent results!

 

Check out the video of the results!

World Book Day

 

We have had the best day for WBD 2019! we started the day with a great assembly where we got to see all of the teachers amazing outfits. Then, back in the classroom, we paired up with a character that was very different to the one we dressed up as. Mr Twit (Mr Stanley) and Kissing Kate Barlow (Mrs Baxter) read to us a short piece on how they met. We then had to write our own. I'm sure you'll agree- they're amazing!!

In year 6, we support and care for each other

 

This week year 6 have been on bike ability. Unfortunately, some children weren't confident enough to be taken out onto the roads with the instructors. But, here at Springfield, we don't let challenges like this put us off! 3 children who achieved their targets early, devised a lesson to help and support the children who found it difficult. What a fabulous team we have in year 6: always caring and helping each other to achieve!

What an amazing day we enjoyed by the river as part of our Geography topic! We found so much wildlife and lots of signs of Spring. After learning about the features of a river in our lessons it was great to identify many of them in real life in our local area. Why do you think we didn't see every feature of a river on our trip?

As part of our science topic: Evolution and Inheritance, we have been investigating how animals have adapted over time to suit their habitat. We created interactive, educational displays to show our learning. After creating models of habitats and animals, we added information to explain how they have adapted over time to suit their environment. To check that our work met its success criteria, we invited a Year 3 class to look around our habitat exhibits and give their feedback.

Science TASC: Investigating Circuits

In science, we have started a TASC project. We are working in teams to use our knowledge of circuits and electricity to create a steady-hand buzzer game!

Sequences- Finding the nth Term

Sequences- Finding the nth Term 1
Today in maths, we have been playing a sequences game. The children had to match the answers with the correlating question. These however, were not easy questions; they involved finding the nth term, finding a missing term or matching the nth term with its matching sequence!  

Hour of Code: Minecraft Challenge 

Today we have been completing our hour of code. We are applying the skills we have learnt over the last few weeks of learning about the internet, the world wide web and webpages.

Today in our Computing lesson we learned how to remix a website. We have learnt about the internet, the world wide web and how html is a language used to create websites. Today we used Mozilla x ray goggles to identify html tags and used them to change the information on websites. It was important to realise how easily news can be manipulated and we had a great discussion about 'fake news'.

Quest Story Immersion

We have been reading and analysing Quest Stories. Through our reading, we have learnt language techniques  to create different moods. We have also discovered the content features of Quest Stories. As a short writing task, we worked in pairs to continue an unfamiliar Beast Quest story from a given point. We worked hard to include language for effect, appropriate content and higher-level punctuation. Some amazing writing!

We have been learning all about Ancient Greece in Topic lessons. To demonstrate what we have learnt about Greek Gods, we created educational films using the Morpho App. We chose a God to research and collect interesting facts to teach to others. Then we wrote scripts to embed our learning in. Finally it was the day of filming! We used the Morpho App and filmed ourselves, then edited using iMovie. Here are the results!

Computing TASC: Can you make a 'retro game' using coding?

We have been learning to use coding to create our own computer games. We used the retro game 'Pong' as a stimulus and designed our own themed versions.

Science TASC: Animals Including Humans

Picture 1
To apply the knowledge we have learnt about our circulatory system, we tried to solve the problem: Can you design an evidence-based exercise programme to achieve a specific physical goal? We had to investigate and measure how different exercises affect our heart rate and use this to design an exercise programme from our evidence.

The Lungs

We have been continuing our enquiry based approach to science by investigating the lungs. We were initially given a balloon and some string to investigate lung capacity. At first, we were all unsure but, after the initial wobble, we began to use the balloon and string correctly.
Then, we went outside and worked as a class to create a huge pair of lungs on the playground. The only problem was: it was a competition. We had to work using non verbal communication and only had chalk, balloons and tape to create the trachea, bronchus, bronchioles and avilolis.

Today we have been out on the playground to recreate the circulatory system. Children were given the roles of; the blood; the heart; the lungs and other vital organs. The children then acted as the blood stream showing the double circulation to lungs and to the rest of body, passing through the heart. 

We opened our Science topic with a bang today in year 6! The children were filled with wonder when when we presented them with an unknown organ. Many of them guessed correctly that it was infact a heart. 

The children then had the opportunity to observe and investigate the heart. They then completed challenges to label the features of the heart, experiment with the heart by filling it with water and then finally cutting into the heart to reveal the septum, valves and heart cords. 

The room was buzzing with scientific enquiry and vocabulary. Well done 6P!
