Year 6

Compass bearings

As part of their Geography work, Year Six have been looking at bearings on maps and in the real world. Today they tried for the first time to take bearings from points within the school grounds.

 

They remembered the key points of holding the compass flat, pointing in the direction of travel, turning the bezel to North and reading the bearing carefully.

Today Carys and Grace from Year 2 helped Miss Wilson present our Celebration Assembly broadcast and assisted Mr Patterson with his behind the scenes technical magic.

Miss White also presented Miss Wilson with her very own Gold Headteachers Award, for all of her wonderful work with the children who sang at the 190th Jubilee Mass at Church this week. What a wonderful way to end a fantastic half term.

CAD Anderson Shelters

Year Six have been looking at the design of Anderson Shelters and using CAD to make their own 3D version. You have to be very precise with the software as the smallest error can look very odd in 3D. To bring the design to life, they rendered the design with realistic materials.
