Science Investigation 16.11.17 - Series and parallel circuits
In year 6, we have been investigating the differences between series and parallel circuits and their uses in everyday life.
Laches Wood Assembly
Well done to Year 6 for their great performance! We hope that the rest of the children, staff and parents enjoyed watching!
'Alright Charlie' Police Visit
PC Edge recently came into school to deliver the 'Alright Charlie' workshop. This gave our children the opportunity to discuss some of the dangers of modern society; both online and offline.
Laches Wood 2017
Here are some of the pictures from our fantastic week at Laches Wood.
Praying the Rosary
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Our Lady's apparition in Fatima, Year 6 went into the Chapel to learn a little more about why the Rosary is so important to us as Catholics. The children also spent some time praying the Rosary together.
French & Music afternoon with Saint John Fisher staff
Year 6 had a fantastic afternoon thanks to Mrs Higgins and Miss Golds from Saint John Fisher. The children learned various animal names in French. In addition to this, they had the opportunity to write their own song. We have some talented lyric writers!
School Councillors in Year Six
The children have voted for their representatives on the school council. This year they have chosen Ruby (6S), Krae (6S), Tia (6B) and Joshua (6B).
Building electrical circuits!
As an introduction to our first science unit of Electricity, we worked in groups to choose equipment to build an electrical circuit. We investigated factors which affect circuits, such as:
bulb brightness, circuit overload and types of switches. We discussed what happens when there is a break in the circuit and used the scientific vocabulary we have learned to explain why.
Year 6 took part in an e-safety awareness afternoon with PCSO Steve Edge.
We discussed ways in which we can remain safe on internet and what to do if we feel uncomfortable about anything online. We focused on cyber bullying and the effects of this.
