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 πŸ˜† 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 πŸ˜‰

  4. I’m so nervous for year 6’s D.A.R.E graduation. The interesting thing is that Tyler has already graduated for D.A.R.E!

  5. Me and Alex F are practising on our communication role plays. We came up with the idea to get the parents involved. Hopefully they join in!!!:) We have also written a script on what to say. We can’t wait for the graduation!!

  6. I really enjoyed the science we did yesterday. It was really fun learning about pulse rates.

  7. hi Mrs Larkin I think the dare presentations are really coming together now and I know most of the words for the dare song πŸ™‚

  8. You can take your pulse rates on your groin, temple, wrist, neck and at the back of your leg.Over 650 Aesop fables are THOUGHT to have been written.Question!!! How many miles did Pheidippedeis have to run IN TOTAL πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘

  9. I still think ours needs a bit of work and I’m almost finished everyone’s Christmas cards and I think u will all like em

  10. Hi miss I think the best place for me to take my pulse rate is my wrist but my second choice would be my neck. Also I am really looking forward to Monday when we graduate for DARE. As well as that this week I beat my clic and safe scores. :):)
