Science in Year 6

In Year 6, we have been learning all about light! We have learnt which materials reflect light the best and how light travels. We have been applying this knowledge to an investigation where we made periscopes! Following this we have written our own detailed set of instructions on how to make a periscope!

What can you remember from our topic?

Can you tell me what the key words: opaque, translucent and transparent mean?

Today we visited the Hindu Temple and learned all about the different Hindu Gods/Goddesses. We watched a Hindu Celebration and listen to a presentation all about the religion! We found out all about why Hindu’s respect the five senses and why they are central to the religion! We had such a good morning!

Maths with Miss Jarvis!

In maths we have been doing lots and lots of work on fraction methods and we have just finished our topic of measure!

Our next topic is on area and perimeter and we started by looking at shapes that have the same area and different perimeters and vice versa.

Can anyone think of a shape that has an area of 50cm squared?

Our new topic for this term is WW2! So far we have looked at WW1 to help us understand a little better. We’ve looked at how WW2 started, who the allies and the axis where and who some of the famous people were. We then thought of some fab questions we would like to find out about!

We have begun to look at maps of the allies and axis and which countries invaded each other. What can you remember? (I’ll give you a clue)
