Year 6

Week Ending 18/1/19

This week in Science we have been learning about how mirrors reflect light and help us to see objects. We have also learnt about the ‘Law of Reflection’.  The class worked in pairs to test this theory by using blue-tac to stand a mirror up on their whiteboards. They made a very narrow slit in a piece of card and then shone the light source through the slit to see the reflection of light.  Their very last task was to measure the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection.

Week Ending 14/12/18

This week Year 6 have been learning about the digestive system. We began by watching Mrs O doing the ‘poo experiment’ and then we wrote about how food turns into waste from the perspective of a piece of food. Here are a few for you to read – we hope you like them.

Also last Friday, some children decided to make a video promoting Newberries. Watch and be amazed.

“Year 6 enjoyed their Hare Krishna enrichment workshop. We learnt about their traditions and enjoyed role-playing their Gods.  We got a real insight how Hindu’s live their lives.”

This week there were two trips in Year 6: Lincolnsfield Centre and Queens. The children behaved beautifully at both and again made us proud. It was a pleasure to take such enthusiastic and well-mannered children to both establishments.   We hope that the children thoroughly enjoyed the WW2 experience day as well as meeting a real war veteran.
