Welcome to Year 6

Stanley Head 7th – 11th March

Memorable Experience – Heart dissection!

Year Six had a superb hands on experience when learning about the circulatory system when we dissected a real heart.  We were able to find and identify the four important chambers, main arteries, veins and even the heart valves!

Memorable Experience – Term 1b

Year Six became WW2 codebreakers today, in order to enrich their learning about Bombe (a decoding machine) designer Alan Turing, who famously cracked the code of the Enigma Machine. They got to embark on a dangerous mission to a fallen plane to retrieve vital settings.  They then used the machine to code their own message, giving German air raid locations to Fighter Command so they could prevent the bombings!
