Yesterday Year 6 were given another challenge by Miss Evans.  This time we had to design silver and bronze certificates for the Phase 2 and 3 sports day. Once again we realised that there was rather a lot involved in this task.  We had to think carefully about what was written on the certificate and the overall look of it.  We were also only given around 45 minutes.  You may think that it is plenty of time; but we discovered it really wasn't because time flies when you're having fun!  We are waiting to hear the results of the competition.  Who do you think will win?  

We are finally drawing some conclusions from our maths investigation.  Whilst we are not really as fast as Usain, there are a few children who are giving him a run for his money.  Our fastest time was under 17 seconds.  Not too bad we think, when you compare it to Usain's 9.58 seconds, and that we don't have a running track!  
We also found out a fascinating fact.  Apparently Usain eats chicken nuggets before he is involved in an important race.  Do you think it's true? We think he probably eats runner beans!!  Very funny!

So that's all from us!
We are still thinking about that chocolate!

Can't wait to see you on Monday because we are really missing you. 
All of the Phase 4 teachers hope that we are ready to get on with the show next week!

Best wishes from the rest of Year 6.

PS.  We are having a fun swimming session today!  So exciting!
