P6 News

Little did P6 realise that when they returned in October and started their novel study ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ and the related topic ‘Earth and Climate’, they would be living some extreme weather conditions themselves.

Initially, they started finding out about different climate zones around the world, Britain having a temperate climate usually!  Hurricanes, tornadoes, cyclones, monsoons and tsunamis then grabbed their attention.  A mini challenge was planned to investigate other extreme kinds of weather, like avalanches. 

Instead, they have seen first hand how weather can affect lifestyle, sport and school. 

A curriculum for excellence is meant to be realistic, link with previous knowledge and extend their skills for the future.  Experiencing it first hand is even better!

 I couldn’t have planned it any better!
