Year 6 - Beech Class

smileyWelcome to Beech!smiley



Dear Parents/Guardians,


This half-term, our topic will be: The Olympics. We will begin by researching the ancient Olympic Games and then progress to the modern Olympics. This will involve planning and conducting our own “Stowey Games”. 


Homework will remain as it was. This means that it will be set on a Friday and it needs to be returned by the following Tuesday. Part of each child's homework is to read at least three times a week and record it in their Reading Record..


Our P.E topics this term will be cricket and athletics. 


For more information, please read the parents' newsletter, which is attached above.

Day one at Okehampton. 

For the final part of our science topic, we designed, built and tested bridges. The children did brilliantly and nearly all of the bridges spanned the required gap, as well as holding at least 1,000g. 

During science lessons, we have been researching, and creating, simple machines, such as gears, levers and pulleys. 

As part of our “Inventions” topic, we designed, built and tested cars. All of them covered the ten metres distance, with the winning car doing so in just 5.37 seconds! Not bad for a battery powered car. 
As part of our science topic, we designed, built and launched rockets. They were a complete success and every rocket reached at least 8 metres. Well done everyone. 
Our school council representatives, for this year, are Mattie and Libby.
