Wycoller is the year six class. We are taught by Mrs Macdonald. Mrs Blades and Mrs Kinsella..
PE: This takes place on Monday and Friday and is led by Mr Bowie or Mrs Macdonald. Please ensure you wear your PE kit on these days.
Reading: Every child will read to an adult on a regular basis. Children can change books as soon as they have read them; they just need to ask. If they have read at home and their reading record book is signed, they will receive a new book.
Library: Our library session takes place on Wednesdays. Please make sure your child brings their book on that day if they want to change it.

In science, we have been finding out more about the circulation system. We began by making blood to help us understand what blood is made from.
In science, we have also been investigating how our pulse rate can be effected by exercise. We completed different exercises for 1 minute and then checked our pulse rate. Star jumps and running increased our pulse rate significantly.
We had the opportunity to examine and discuss a range of historical arfefacts - linked to Remembrance Day. See more pictures in the link at the foot of the page.
We also painted poppy pictures in the style of Monet.
This year, we have introduced book club where we talk about, discuss and share our favourite books. Each week, a child gets to choose their favourite biscuit to share with the class.
In our novel time. we have been reading the novel - Wonder. Wonder is a powerful story of a 10-year-old boy named August Pullman, who has a facial anomaly. He is an ordinary kid who plays Xbox, is obsessed with Star Wars, but despite the 27 operations done for his face he will never look normal. The novel has realluy made us think about how we treat others.
