Elder

Welcome to the Elder Class webpage!

Welcome to our little corner of the website! We are Elder Class, the Year 6's of St. Mary's Bentworth School! This is the last year of Primary School and is a time for great learning and responsibilities! Within this amazing bunch of people you will find; the Head Boy and Girl, the Church Councillors, the Peer Mentors and the leaders of the School Council, the Eco Council and the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. Each of these roles hold unique responsibilities, and we are enjoying the different challenges they bring.

 

This term our topic is 'The Land Down Under'! We will be learning all about Australia and the amazing animals that live there. After half -term we will also be taking part in our annual 'The Apprentice' project, where we work as a team to design, make and sell products at the Christmas Fayre!

Spectacular STEM Day!

On Friday 22nd September, Elder Class (with some friends from other schools) took part in a fantastic STEM day. Our day was called 'Dead on Time', and we had to work in teams to solve the murder of 'Ben Veasey'. Every challenge was timed, and there was music making it even more exciting! We got to dust for fingerprints, delve into witness statements, test mystery substances, and even conduct DNA fingerprinting. 

It was an amazing day - we want to do another one!

Snowy Times!

Friday 13th turned out to be a lucky day for us as we had snow! Elder Class were asked to accompany their buddies from Year R when they went outside to explore the snowy world around them. We helped our buddies think about what they could hear and feel  when they walked on the snow and touched it, and worked with them to build snowmen! We also went to the pond area with Miss Baker and explored how the pond was covered in ice! We were allowed to carefully break the ice and hand pieces to our buddies so they could have a new experience. It was fun working with our Year R friends to help them develop their knowledge and understanding of the world!

The Mannequin Challenge!

On the last day of term, Elder Class wanted to try a complete the 'Mannequin Challenge'! As there is only a few of us in the class, we decided to make the challenge more difficult, by having to move to different locations without being seen! #TeamElder!

Designing Buildings to Withstand an Earthquake

 

We were very excited in Elder Class to welcome Mr. Moore, who is a Building Surveyor, to come and talk to us about how to design buildings to withstand an earthquake.

He told us about what he does as a Building Surveyor, and about his work in Christchurch, New Zealand, working on the rebuild after the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. He told us about the different foundations different buildings need and the materials that can be used. Then he showed us how computers are used to design buildings (he showed us a plan of the School Hall when it was being redesigned!) and explained how a programme called Google Sketch Up can help us design buildings. We had a go using this programme, and are going to design our own earthquake resistant buildings!

'Dreams of Freedom'

We have loved using the book 'Dreams of Freedom' to start our English learning this year. Our class poem 'The Way I Love Freedom' is our proudest achievement! We are glad you enjoyed listening it to it during Sharing Assembly, and thought you may like to have a copy on line! Enjoy! #thewayilovefreedom #teamelder #classpoem
