Light and How We See Things

Our science topic this half term is all about light and how we see things. In our science lesson last week we used prisms to investigate how we can see rainbows and how light is actually made up of 7 different colours (rather than being white, like we first thought). Can you remember which colours light is made up of? Can you remember which scientist discovered this?

What Makes a Good Brand Range?

Yesterday we started our new DT topic. During this topic we will be designing and making Christmas themed biscuits but before we get to that point there is a lot of work involved in conducting market research, deciding on the ingredients to use, creating design ideas and making prototypes. We will also be designing the packaging for our biscuits and advertising to sell them so that we can make as much profit as possible.

To get an ideas about the different types of biscuits already available and find out about people’s preferences, we of course had to conduct a taste test of a range of different types and flavours of biscuits.

Fire Safety !

Today we were visited by the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service. They gave us lots of information on how to keep safe on the run up to Bonfire night and throughout the year. 

We were taught how to ‘ STOP DROP AND ROLL’ if we were ever in danger linked to fire. This was a very informative assembly. 

What did you learn Year 6?

Ancient Greek Workshop

As part of our History lessons, Year Six are learning about the Ancient Greeks. On Monday a history specialist came into school to help us with our work. We played an Ancient Greek game called Knuckle Bones, looked at, asked questions about and drew Ancient Greek artefacts and also dressed up in Ancient Greek armour and clothes. We had an exciting day!
