Thursday 13th July
The last activity of Science week was to make our own compasses. Using a magnet, a needle and a true compass to check with, we were able to work out that the corner of the room where Mr Scarborough's desk is, is Magnetic North.
Wednesday 12th July - Science Week continues. Today, we looked at the best conditions for growing mould (results to be announced in a couple of weeks) and built the highest tower that we could using marshmallows and spaghetti sticks. This meant that the stable had to be stable!.
The Final Results!
Tuesday 11th June - Continuing Science Week, Year 6 made Fire Extinguishers, by mixing bi-carbonate of soda with Vinegar. The class room now smells like a Fish and Chip shop!
Later, we looked at the factors needed for a plant to grow healthily. Then, we set up an experiment where different were deprived of one need. We also set up two test, one with none of the factors and one with all of them.
Monday 10th June - This week, Year 6 are having a week of Science activities. Today, we studied finger prints and worked out who had
committed the "crime" Then, we made Lava Lamps and began to understand how the coloured water was able to travel through the oil because the sodium carbonate had been converted to carbon dioxide because of the effervescent tablets that we had added.
6th June - Today , Year 6 started to design Maths Trails for the rest of the school. These will be trails where the children can use all of the Maths that they have learnt, to answer questions based on things around the school.
4th June - Today, Year 6 had a visit by Wayne from CCIS. He gave everyone a book, called "It's Your Move!" about moving to Secondary School. These books have lots of tip and ideas to help with this big move! He sang us a Rap, which everyone joined in and entertained us with his stories of his own experience of secondary school
Today, Year 5 and Year 6 were very lucky to be visited by Mrs Linda Godbold, who is the Mum of Daniel, who stood in for Daniel Radcliffe during the filming of the first Harry Potter movie. Mrs Godbold entertained us all with stories of adventures on set and showed us some of the props that her son was allowed to keep after filming had finished!!
Today, Year 6 have been helping Father Christmas by replying to the letters that the children in Y1 sent to him. He was very grateful for the help at this especially busy time of year!!!!
Year 6 have been writing "Just So" stories in the style of Rudyard Kipling. We made them in to books and today, we went to read these books to children on Reception Class. Some of the Y6 children definitely enjoyed reliving their Reception Days.
This afternoon, Y6 started to decorate plant pots which they are going to sell at the Christmas Fayre in 2 weeks
