Return to Children

Year 6 – Sea Horses

Welcome to Sea Horses Class!

Our main Class Teacher is Sarah Jane Kimbley and we are also supported by Louise Dembowicz.

  • Tower of London Trip

    On Monday the 14th of October, Year 6 visited the Tower of London to further investigate crime and punishment through the ages. On our visit, we saw plenty of interesting things including the Crown Jewels, the White Tower and the Bloody Tower.

    We learnt about how the Tower was used as a prison, the mysterious disappearance of two princes, the significance of the Crown Jewels and the Legend of the Tower Ravens – we even managed to spot three of them!

    Take a look at some of our photos from the day:

       

  • Crime Scene Investigators – Chromatography

    Year 6 planned and carried out an experiment using chromatography.

    We investigated whether all black felt tip pens have the same ink and whether it would create the same pattern on our filter paper.

  • Bring Your Parents to School Morning – Harvest Cooking

    Year 6 spent the morning learning about Harvest Festivals before writing their own recipe and creating egg muffins.

    A great big thank you to all the parents that came in Wednesday morning, the children loved to have you in the classroom!

     

  • Roman Curse Tablets

    In our Crime and Punishment learning adventure, we discovered that in the Roman times (43 to 410 AD) there was no police force.

    Unfortunately, if the victim was unable to catch the criminal themselves and bring them to court, there was little hope of justice. Therefore, the victims often turned to the Roman gods for help instead by writing curse tablets.

    Year 6 made our very own curse tablets, written in the style of the Romans. We altered our names to sound authentic and researched which Roman god to call upon.

     

  • Crime Scene Investigators

    WARNING! POLICE CRIME SCENE – DO NOT ENTER

    On Wednesday 11th September, Year 6 became Crime Scene Investigators in order to solve the mystery of the missing dog!

    We returned after lunch to find our classroom trashed and no sign of Archie (the French bulldog). However, we spotted a series of clues that we knew could lead us to the culprit.

    Suspects Amy, Louise and Sarah were interviewed, had their fingerprints taken and provided handwriting samples for us to analyse.

    Following this, each group presented their findings and who they believed was guilty. All evidence pointed towards… LOUISE!

    Finally, Archie was reunited with the class as they successfully solved the crime.

    It appears we may have some detectives in the making!
