Please find attached the learning journey for next week.
Phew! Another action packed week in Year 6 done, and we are really gearing up for the production now. Also, we are all very excited for the Summer Fair tomorrow.
This week in topic, we learnt all about how diet and exercise effects the human body and how we can change our diet to give us different types of energy. It was discovered that athletes eat far more than other people, as they need much more energy than the rest of the population. What really surprised us was the high-energy diet Michael Phelps consumed in the lead up to the 2008 Beijing Olympic: an average grown man will eat 2000 calories a day, while Mr Phelps would consume 12000 in a single day!
After that, we discussed the idea of banning or restricting children from buying high-sugar or high-fat foods, commonly known as junk food. The children showed their opinions, and formed them articulately and beautifully. Our writing was a balanced argument about this topic.
In addition to all this, we also began our £5 challenge this week. It is abundantly clear that we have some budding entrepreneurs in the year group. We will keep you updated on any new information.
Lastly, we were paid a visit by a former detective in the London Metropolitan Police this week. Steve spoke to us all about e-safety and the importance of being respectful, safe and law-abiding when using the world wide web.
We hope you have a great week, and look forward to seeing you at the Summer Fair!
