Elmhurst School for Boys

28th November 2014

Read about Year 6's recent activities in Maths, Science and ICT.

Maths
Year 6 recently took part in the Primary Maths Challenge. The competition takes place nationally in over 2,000 primary schools across the UK and the paper tests the boys’ ability to solve 25 mathematical word problems. Year 6 found the paper challenging and we wait with interest to see how many Elmhurst pupils have qualified for the bonus round next February.

Gold Certificates were awarded to: Aman, Pablo

Silver certificates were awarded to: Purav, Yash, Bilal

Bronze Certificates were awarded to: Dominic, Nathan, Cameron

Science
This term, Year 6 have continue their work on classifying. They have enjoyed analysing their mould-growing investigations to find out the conditions mould grows best in and have classified it as a living thing, in the fungi kingdom.

Year 6 are currently compiling a guide book of living things in the playground, from wild clematis and snails, to white moss on the wall.

ICT
Over the last month, all pupils In Year 6 have registered with Elmhurst School’s Edmodo learning website.

This pilot project enables teachers to set assignments and tasks online, for the boys to complete at home. The boys can then work collaboratively on tasks by blogging and sharing their ideas and resources.

Edmodo has been successfully used in ICT, Maths, Spelling and now Science and is an extremely popular aspect of the provision we provide in Year 6.  If successful, Edmodo will gradually be introduced to different year groups across the school.
