We have had a really exciting start to the term in year 6!
On Thursday 6th September we had our Music @ Malling workshop. We learned how to follow a conductor; how to compose music and lyrics and how to perform a piece in time to the beat.
Tuesday 10th September saw us roaming around the woods with Hazel and Kimber from Forest School. We learnt team building and problem solving skills and we can't wait to go again next week!
On Tuesday 17th September we went to West Malling Church for our Music @ Malling concert. The children enjoyed listening to a professional orchestra and performing their own music with 3 other schools.
On Thursday 2nd October we had our fantastic trip to Down House. The children learned a lit from it including where Charles Darwin did his amazing experiments, what his life and family were like and they even got to do their own experiment to find out how finches have adapted- ask year 6 to explain this to you!
During the last week of term we have been lucky enough to have a workshop from the Fire Service called Restart the Heart. The children were able to practise chest compressions on the dummies, ut each other into the recovery position and were even shown what to do if anyone needed to use the defibrillator.
We have also been having a debate about whether Darwin's theory of evolution is compatible with Christian teachings and perfoming some abstract poetry.
Phew! What a busy term! We're looking forward to term 2, make sure you all have a restful holiday!
