In today’s blog post, we are going to talk about an important topic – mental health. Sometimes life can be overwhelming, and it’s crucial to learn effective coping mechanisms to help us navigate through challenging times.

These small, squishy balls can be squeezed and manipulated, allowing us to release tension and stress!

Year 6 – Geography

As Geographers, Year 6 used our atlas skills to locate physical features of the UK and located the tallest mountains in the 4 countries. We then located mountains from across the world. To help us visualise their size, we used cubes and noticed that the mountains in the UK are actually quite small! #geography

As scientists, Year 6 investigated which ‘beaks’ are best adapted to pick up different types of ‘seeds’ this week, linked to our work on evolution and inheritance. The investigation was great fun and helped us understand how Darwin came to his conclusions. #Grammarsaurus #year6 #science
