Welcome to the class page for Eucalyptus Class
Our class topic this term is our Local area, specifically we will be looking at whether where we live affects who we are. This will include local geography, history and culture and exploration of locally based literature and art.
Our class book for this term is "Wee Free Men" by Terry Pratchett, which is set in the fictional land called "The chalk" which is based on the Cotswolds and even includes the White Horse at Faringdon.

Year 6 trip to Lakes by Yoo, Lechlade. The kids had a great day building shelters, lighting fires, ziplining and air rifle shooting (and some stone skimming and pond dipping). We followed the day with a barbeque and marshmallow toast and a camp out at school.
We have been studying "Animals and humans" which involves furthering our investigations into how bodies work. We will examine the Circulatory System, the skeletal system, organs and also looked at health and lifestyle, diet and how exercise benefits us physically and mentally.
We will also be moving on to exploring electricity and how it works, its applications and uses and creating experiments to look at electrical currents, strengths and conductivity.
Heart dissection investigation.
