Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry... blood flows through bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let's explore the circulation system! Don't be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins and arteries and chambers close up. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies.
Let's check out the most common blood groups in our class? Why do people give blood?
Find out how to keep your heart happy with cardiovascular exercise and healthy food. Kick-start a campaign to spread the word about the damage caused by smoking, to the heart and lungs.
Hearts pound, flutter and maybe skip a beat. What makes the heart race? Is it a secret? Cross my heart, I won't tell...
A Child's War
Our Latest Topic is 'A Child's War'
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at WAR! Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why the nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.
This week we have begun our Big Writing work in year 6.
This is one of our favourite pieces from the first Big Write - Well done Grace...
Ali stood silently, looking at the derelict door. With a slow creeping sound, it opened. Taking a deep breath, Ali walked inside. She didn't want to go in; her mum had told her to stay safe.
Walking in, broken glass invaded the whole hallway. Should she carry on? All of a sudden, a loud bang echoed across the whole house. She knew she had got herself into something she shouldn't have. Inside the house was: creepy, dull, damp and even mouldy.
Tentatively, Ali went further on subsequently music began to play. Turning around, she knew it was not right. Ali (who was petrified) had to get out and fast. And then the door kept slamming.
"Is anybody here!"
Now she had to get out. Rapidly running out, the door closed, someone grabbed Ali. SILENCE!

Our first Cornerstones topic this year is ID -
Who do you think you are? Are you an extrovert or an introvert, a singleton, a twin or even a triplet?
Let’s discover what makes you… you!
From your fingerprints and footprints, genes and DNA, everything is unique to you. So why do you look just like Mum or Dad… or even Auntie Rose?
Explore the world of human identity and how our unique features can be used to tell us apart from others or help to solve a crime!
