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 3’s trip to the Mandir

On the 23rd November Year 3 went on a trip to the Hindu Temple also known as the Mandir.

We were invited in to the temple and shown to the worship room where we got to see all the Hindu Gods and learn lots of interesting things.

We learnt all the Hindu Gods names – well 10 of them, about Hindu weddings and also about what the Hindus might have in a shrine at home.

Year 6 Maths Video – How to…

In Year 6 we have been making ‘How to’ videos to show other children how to work out maths problems. We have learnt that teaching someone else do something is a good way to remember methods and the videos can help others too.

There is also a video of out-takes which is quite funny too.

Hope you like them.
