Year 6 Whitby Trip

On Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of our topic work. We looked at the Abbey, walked down (and up) the 199 steps, went in the old town, on the pier and play on the beach. The children also had time to look in the shops and buy gifts and sweets. We had a fantastic day although the weather was miserable and wet. The children were a credit to the school and enjoyed it very much.

What was your favourite part?

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 Function Machines

In problem solving lessons, Year 6 have been learning about function machines and pretending to be human machines. The children were given a number then they had to use the function to change the number and give an output. In groups the children then created a machine for the other children,they had to guess the function using trial and error and patterns.

Can you solve this function machine by giving another example?

(Don’t post the answer)

12………………………………………………..140

10………………………………………………..120

36………………………………………………..380

145………………………………………………..1470

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.

 

Year 6 Whitby Trip 6.10.2017

Last Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of their topic and English work.

We had an amazing day, the sun shone all day, we paddled in the sea, had an ice-cream, looked in the shops and went up and down the 199 steps.

The children were a credit to the school and we had a lovely day spotting the sights in Whitby and the book Room 13.

Here are some photos and a video of our day.

Well done Year 6!
