Which is your favourite scene of the Year 6 play?

Year 6 News

Our Geography topic about Dorset is enabling lots of map skills to develop, and we have been using Ordnance Survey maps to support understanding of 6 figure grid references. We have also been exploring 8 and even 16 compass points on maps to enable more precise directions to be given. The children have enjoyed making their own maps of parts of the playground and trim trail, using a compass for direction and a ruler to measure scale. Drawing objects from a bird's-eye view was definitely a challenge. In Science, we have been examining food packaging to help understand the nutritional value of certain types of food and researching some of the main nutrients to consider the effect on our hearts. Of course, play rehearsals are in full swing with the added excitement of costumes, which has enhanced children's individual performances, as they begin to really get to grips with how their character speaks and acts. It has been exciting to use all the props and lighting too. The play is really coming together, and we are eagerly anticipating our performances to both the children in school on Monday and parents and carers on Tuesday evening.
