Today, Year 6 had a practical science lesson. They investigated the variables that might affect the brightness of a bulb in a circuit. There’s definitely some future electrical engineers in this class!
World Book Day 2022
Our theme this year was “wild things.” The children enjoyed dressing up and taking part in various activities throughout the day.
Today, Year 6 had an electricity workshop delivered by control systems engineers from Sellafield’s STEM outreach. The children followed instructions and built many kinds of circuits; what a fun-filled morning!
Author, Ross McKenzie
Today, we had a special visitor - Ross McKenzie, author of ‘The Nowhere Emporium,’ ‘Shadowsmith,’ and ‘Evernight.’ He talked to the children about what inspired him, the creative process, and answered a whole range of questions. The budding writers then had a chance to finish one of Ross’ horror stories - all about spiders!
Christmas Party Day
‘Tis the season to be jolly…Today was party day and each class had the chance to go to the school hall for some fun and games. Year 6 certainly still believe in the magic of Christmas!
Science is fun!
In Science today we have been classifying sweets to get practice with question keys. The children had some fantastic ideas for separating the different sweets and got to eat them once they'd finished! Yum!
