PERILOUS POLES

To start off our next topic, Y6 visited Brig House Educational Centre.
We all had fun, especially on the Blind Snowstorm Challenge, The Polar Parachute and Shackleton's Trail activities. 
We were not put off by wet conditions- some children positively embraced the mud... quite literally! 
Y6 teachers give thanks to Mr Wills and Mr Smith especially for their early start and preparations to ensure our day was successful! Ken, Mrs Miles and Mrs Jacku all pitched in to ensure children had the most fun possible as they learned new polar facts. Keep scrolling for pictures. Can you find out what some of our QR codes are saying?

PARALLEL CIRCUITS IN PRACTISE!

We finally managed to get our parallel circuits working so that each light bulb could be switched on and off separately! It was a lot of fun (and frustration) working out how we could operate each bulb individually. But we did it!
We also created series circuits with up to 7 bulbs at a time!
See our photos and video clips.

We are very proud of our calendars in year 6. Water colour paintings with quilled paper curls/shapes to decorate.

COULD YOU SAVE A GRAPE FROM THE IMPACT OF A 1 KG WEIGHT?

As part of our WAR CHILD topic, year 6 and their parents had a fabulous afternoon making models of Anderson Shelters. 
They had to make a structure strong enough to withstand the impact a 1 kg weight.
Did they save their little grapes? Yes they did!!!!
Congratulations on a positively competitive,  successful and FUN afternoon!
