BBC Live Lessons: Terrific Scientific!


Year Six joined schools across the country to take part in an online lesson about exercise and how it helps us.  After the lesson, we went outside to take our pulse and discover how it changed after exercise.


Our IPC topic this term is "Keeping Fit".  We started this project with an afternoon of healthy activities.  We all took part in an exercise class and then made a delicious, fruit drink.

Keeping Fit!

Year 6 have been using Google SketchUp to design 3D models.
