Statistics and Dragons!

After a busy first week back after the Easter Holidays, Year 6 have enjoyed an excellent week of home learning! Year 6 were challenged to design and pitch their Lockdown solutions in the style of Dragons Den! Over the week, the year 6 entrepreneurs considered what made a successful pitch, designed their products, and then wrote up their persuasive pitch to the dragons! With ideas ranging from “Communication Bands” for staying in touch with relatives, devices to help with boredom at home, and some aimed at dealing with wider world problems, there was some excellent work on show! Want to see for yourself? All the pitches were completed on our class blogs, so go and look at yourself!

In Maths the children looked at calculating the average of data in several ways, including the mean, mode, and median, and were then challenged to apply these skills to evaluating the success of different superheroes.

There has been so much superb work on the show, it has been a real treat to see the pride that the children have shown in their Home Learning tasks! The teachers had a tough job picking the Star’s of the Week and who to give the Student Shout outs to each day! Looking forward to seeing what the next week brings!


Covid-19 & School

Welcome to the new normal! In these strange new times school has changed a bit and there’s new ways of doing some things. We’ve put together a resource page of information and guidance about what it means for HPS.
