A love for learning - what have year 6 been up to this week?

Scientists sort and group living things according to their similarities and differences. This is called classification. Scientists who classify living things are called taxonomists. In Science,, the children acted as taxonomists today: they had to decide how to classify vertebrates and give reasons for your classification. Take a look at their criteria and use of key.

On our first day back, we discussed how to identify risks and dangers in and outside the home before devising our own rules to keep safe in the sun. Year 6 have also focused on road safety and the children created posters they could share with other students promoting safe road crossing.

Over the past few weeks, we have been learning about road safety and how important it is to know about the ways children can be independent while crossing roads safely.

This week, we went outside and crossed the road. The children were very sensible and applied all the rules they had learned in class to an outside setting.
