Look what we've been learning!

Welcome to Year 6!
 
This half term we are learning all about space, including looking at the Cold War and the Space Race in history, looking at our place in the universe in science and RE, and having a lot of fun writing newspaper articles about UFOs and the first men on the moon!
 
We have just finished reading our class book for the half term ('The Jamie Drake Equation' by Christopher Edge) and are excited to start our advent book next week!
 
 
Hawk Class performed brilliantly in the cross country at Milton Country Park last week, with the boys taking 2nd, 3rd and 4th place! Certificates were also presented for 'the spirit of the games' - great work everyone!  
We've been watching some of Chris Hadfield's videos from the ISS this week - watch more on the Canadian Space Agency's Youtube channel!

Year 6 had a fantastic time visiting The Institute of Astronomy last Friday thanks to Dr Bothwell, an extremely informative and interesting astronomer who took time out of his busy schedule to teach us all about the universe. We learned many fascinating facts, saw the Institute's very own telescope and even held extraordinarily old space rocks! Thank you to the parent helpers who assisted - your support is invaluable to our class.
