It’s been a marathon of a week!

We’ve had another great week in Year 6 this week with some brilliant work. We’ve nearly finished our Battle of Marathon writing based on Pheidippedes’ arduous message carrying, we’ve rocketed in our CLIC and SAFE challenges, thoroughly enjoyed sketching the Parthenon and even found time to begin planting the first of ninety trees that will enhance our school grounds. Here are a few challenges that you might want to have a go at answering over the weekend:

How many fables is Aesop thought to have written? Can you find one we’ve not read yet and summarise it?

Can you find out anything about the Parthenon? It will be useful to do some research before our visit to Sheffield on 4th December to do our ‘Offerings to Athena’ workshop.

Where is the best place to take your pulse rate? I’m thinking where on the body not in the doctor’s surgery 😆 Can you find yours? You’ll need to be able to do this when we do our Science investigation later in the week…

Have a lovely weekend and remember that DARE report homework is due in on Monday 😉
