St Andrew's C of E (VA) Primary


Friday 2nd February

This has been another very busy week in year 6.

In English we have been enjoying our class book, Pig-Heart boy by Malorie Blackman.

In maths we have become experts in perimeter, area and volume. See the pictures below which shows how we met the challenge of making an open box with a volume of 24 cm cubed.

In geography we have been learning about Energy and the Environment and on Friday afternoon we had a debate about the advantages and disadvantages of building more wind farms. At times it got quite heated!

The highlight of the week was most certainly in science. We have been learning about the circulatory system and had the opportunity to really find out about the structure of the heart by dissecting some pig hearts. It was an exciting and fascinating experience!
