Year 6 Science – Light

Year 6 have been learning all about light this week. We have been experimenting with light rays (yellow string) we have learnt about light travelling in straight lines and into our eyes. We found out how our eyes use the light to make images from our brain too and how clever they are.

We then started to understand shadows and what shadows are formed from the light rays. We also studied reflection and refraction.

What facts did you learn from these investigations?

What do you now know about light, shadows and the human eye?

Year 6 Premier Sports Taster Session

Today the children took part in a taster session run by Premier Sports. They really enjoyed playing and learning new skills. They tried out archery and a target game.

They counted their points and used their maths skills too.

Year 6 Compliments

Whilst on the trip the children received complimentary feedback from staff at the museum, regarding their polite manner and interest in the exhibition.

Today, a local resident came into school to explain how impressed she was with the behaviour of the children on the bus home from the museum. She said that even though they had clearly had a fantastic day on the trip, they were pleasantly chatting away and even giving up their seats to people who needed them.

Well done to all the children involved.

Year 6 Imax and Science and Media Museum

Yesterday, Year 6 went on a trip to the Science and Media Museum in Bradford. We took part in 2 workshops, watched a science film on the Imax and looked around the exhibitions. We learnt lots of new facts about photography and cameras. We also had the chance to experiment with lights and cameras as well as taking part in science experiments. 

In the Imax cinema we watched a film called ‘Mysteries of the unseen world‘. It showed how cameras can capture things that are too small, too fast or too slow for the eye to see. It was fantastic. Here is a clip.

Here are the rest of our photos.

Well done to all the children who represented St.Paul’s brilliantly and received a compliment from someone at the museum for their excellent behaviour.

** Tell me a new fact you learnt below please **

Year 6 Science 19.1.2018

Today, Year 6 have been investigating circuits and the symbols used to show a circuit.They created simple circuits and also included a motor. They worked in groups brilliantly and everyone was able to light up their bulb and spin the motor.

Can you remember why we use symbols in our circuit diagrams?

What did you learn about circuits?
