*TERM 2 YEAR SIX 2011*

Welcome to the Year Six Blog!
This term (Term 2) we have been doing a whole lot of exciting stuff. We got a new teacher called Ms McDonald, but we call her Ms Mac for short.
The first Thursday in Week One we went to Impact Alpha Gym. We did trampolining, floor rolls, hand-standing and we went on the bars. We're really enjoying going to gymnastics this term!
We have started learning about Rainforests and the Yanomami tribe that live in the Amazon Rainforest. We have been finding out about the layers of the trees and human impact on Tropical Rainforests. We learned where Temperate and Tropical Rainforests are found in the world.
In Reading we have been doing a Journal Study including word finds, plays, etc. In Literacy we wrote recounts about the holidays and typed them up on the school laptops. Ms. Mac has been reading us The Silver Sword which is about this man who has lost his wife and three children in the war.
We have been doing Maths Interchange and we have three classes - Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. All the teachers are brilliant at teaching maths to the children.
Every Tuesday we go to Music with Mrs G-C and Art with Mrs Clarke. We've been doing print blocks of flowers and fish for art and learning the ukulele.
We ran the Cross Country at Hagley Park. Louis and Bennet were chosen to go to the Canterbury's.
Thank you for taking the time to read about what Year Six is doing this term.

By Myah and Harry, Year 6.
