Year 6 competed against each other in a game of rounders.
Teachers enjoy learning new things too! Today staff were learning more about robotics and coding using microbits.
Spruce class investigated the visible colour spectrum in Science. We placed a triangular prism in front of a white sheet of card and shone a torch through the prism, causing the light to refract and separate the beam of light allowing us to see the seven colours of the spectrum.
Spruce class have been learning about light and refraction in science. We learnt that refraction is when light rays travel at different speeds through transparent materials such as glass and water; this causes the rays of light to bend.
We experimented using a picture and a glass. We drew a picture and placed it under the glass while slowly filling the glass with water. The picture seemed to disappear when we looked through the side of the glass.
Spruce class performed and acted out the creation story in English to understand reasons why society revoked Darwin’s theory of Evolution.
Year 6 have discussed the responsibility that comes with posting on social media sites, along with the importance of online privacy. We discussed how private photos and videos of individuals are for them to decide whether or not they should be shared on social media not others.
The children were reminded to be aware of what they are posting online including what they like and comment on. They were also reminded that if they bring their phones into school, that they must be switched off and remain in the office whilst they are at school. Phones must not be switched on again until they are off school grounds.
Year 6 have made marshmallow Reebops in science to help their understanding of genetics. The features and characteristics of the Reebops were chosen randomly to replicate the natural selection process and constructed out of marshmallows and pins. We learnt that discontinuous variation is how we inherit certain characteristics from our parents genes. The children particularly enjoyed naming their ‘baby’ and putting it into our Reebop nursery!
Spruce class wrote their online profiles which we then acted out, whilst the rest of the class tried to guess whose profile it was.
“Even though your not speaking face to face with someone online, what you say can still affect them,” Martha.
Y4 went to the indoor athletics and worked extremely hard in the track and field events. The boys came 4th and the girls came first!! Well done girls!

On Tuesday 4th February, two football teams went to Parmiters to play in a tournament. Both teams played amazingly well with huge amounts of effort and team spirit. They did us all proud. Well done to all the girls. Well done to Team A who are through to the finals on Thursday 27th February. Good luck!
