Topaz Class Year 6
Welcome to Topaz Class! The children have settled into classroom routines very quickly and are all very excited to be in Year 6 with the additional responsibilities and privileges that brings.
Tour of Britain
We were extremely fortunate to be able to watch the Tour of Britain cycle race last Friday which luckily passed by the end of Marsh Road. The children cheered the cyclists as they went past with gusto!
The children in Topaz class were very excited to deliver their speeches to the rest of their teams in an effort to persuade the children to vote for them as their team captain. All the speeches were of an extremely high standard, presenting the children of St. Mary's with some difficult choices! Well done to all the children who took part - we are all very proud of you - and congratulations to the winners.
We have been looking at the topic of classification in science. We researched the scientist Carl Linnaeus, who created a system for naming plants and animals - a system we still use today.
In art this term, we have been studying macrophotography, and using different techniques in photography. The children really enjoyed posing for their mock album covers!
