Christmas in Y6

We enjoyed our last Christmas at Glenfall with a delicious Christmas dinner and lots of fun and games!

Our Y6 treat afternoon!

For earning all of our Secret Student points, Y6 chose to have a film afternoon. We got into our comfy pyjamas and ate some snacks whilst we watched the film!

Fun in maths!

This term, we have learnt about the properties of 2D and 2D shapes. We can talk about angles and symmetry in 2D shapes and can identify how many faces, edges and vertices 3D shapes have. We classified the shapes into Venn diagrams for another group to guess how our shapes had been sorted.

DT teamwork

In DT lessons, we made a model of a shaduf. We had to measure accurately and use a saw carefully to cut the wood to the right size. We tested out our designs and evaluated them afterwards.
