Year 6 had a visit from our local community police officer – Hazel
She came in to speak to us all about Online Safety.
We had a quiz at the end and all scored really well on it!
Year 6 have enjoyed reading the Bible passage from John 12:24-25 and then acting out scenarios from our daily lives which require us to change our ways. This helped us to illustrate the message of the scripture.
We have been continuing our learning about Light in our Science lessons and this week focussed on refraction. We conducted an experiment to see what would happen to an image (an arrow) when it was moved behind a bottle of water. It was like magic … the arrow changed direction! This is due to light waves travelling at different speeds when they go through other transparent materials such as water or glass.
This causes the rays of light to change direction and bend. This is called refraction.
This afternoon, Year 2 joined Year 6 in their classroom to receive a Science lesson all about Light. Year 6 have been working on the lessons for a few days now and wanted to show, explain and discuss with Year 2 how light travels, what a source of light is and how our eyes are able to see objects. Year 6 created diagrams and wrote a script to assist them in their teaching. It was a successful lesson and by the end, when asked, all of Year 2 could explain the lesson objectives. Well done Year 6 for being such good teachers and well done to Year 2 for being wonderful pupils. Mrs Williams and Miss McKimm were very proud of all the pupils. Fun was had by all!
Year 6 have a had a wonderful day celebrating World Book Day.
In the morning, we visited Nursery and Reception to read to them. It was nice to spend time with them; answering their questions about their favourite books and discussing the character they had dressed up as.
In the afternoon, we met up with Year 3 and after they had read their book to us, we read them our favourite poem. It was a lovely way to end the day 🙂
