Music, Science and Gym, oh my!
These last couple of weeks have been busy and exciting for Year 6…
Year 6 have been learning about Light and Sound and how they function in our world. Since we looked at how sound is created by a series of vibrations, we created our own elastic band guitars. However, one individual went even further and constructed his own makeshift guitar using actual guitar strings and wood.

During our Terrific Thursdays, our pupils have been taking part in various activities. Mr Smit exposed our pupils to some gymnastics where they had to work on their balance and climbing skills:
Mindfulness Day was filled with a variety of different activities for our pupils to take part and explore. One of these activities was mindfulness drawing, teaching our pupils a calming down strategy and showing them how they can be in control of their emotions in a calming environment.
We also took part in some specialised Martial Arts Self-defence sessions. Our instructor, Heather, demonstrated to us how to escape from a grasp and how our young ones could defend themselves if someone bigger than them grabbed a hold of them.
