Battleships!

In maths we have been using a variation of the game Battleships to help us with our understanding of rounding decimals. We selected a grid of numbers to two decimal places and our partner then selected a number to one decimal place. The number on our board that could be rounded to match theirs election would be crossed off. The person with the most numbers left on their board at the end was the winner.

The Liverpool Docks and the slave trade

We are learning about the history of the Liverpool docks this term. One thing we have learned is that they played a role in the slave trade. Year 6 have been learning about their role in this and how this trade took place. We will be producing writing and artwork about this over the next few weeks.

6GD learn about the slave trade.

Scratch!

6GD have been practicing their programming skills using Scratch. They have been completing a variety of mini projects. Remember this is a free piece of online software. Maybe you could try and use it at home. Their are lots of different projects available online, including making games. We will post some on our page as the year continues.

Building a volcano

We are learning about volcanoes  this term.  The children in 6GD are building their own volcanoes and are going to make them erupt. Check back here for videos of them erupting next week. Try and think how 6GD were able to recreate an eruption.

Reversible and irreversible changes

To observe how different materials react when they come into contact with each other or when they are heated, class 6GD made some soda bread. They found that the baking soda created a gas forming air pockets in the bread and causing the bread to rise. These changes were irreversible as a new material (the gas) had been created.
