Year 6 Summer School

​The theme of the summer school for year 6 was Exploration. Students experienced an immersive 360-degree learning experience that took them on a journey through space in an inflatable planetarium!

All sessions focussed on the theme ‘exploration’, such as writing an extended piece of writing on experiences in space in English, working out distances between planets in our solar system in Maths and performing experiments in science.
