Making burglar alarms

 Play the game below if you want some more practice.

Bar model -algebra


Date: 27th Feb 2020 @ 4:08pm

We have been investigating electricity today. 
First we had to see what we could remember about how to build a simple circuit.

Then we decided to investigate how we could change the brightness of the bulb - we had to think about what might affect our circuit and how we could keep everything a fair test.

Have a look and see how we did!

If you'd like to investigate circuits more at home, have a look at these websites:

We have been working hard all week as journalists writing our first drafts of a news report about the declaration of war by Neville Chamberlain in 1939. Proof reading our own writing is a very difficult skill but we have worked in pairs to support each other in the process and we found it very useful. Mrs Ranyard was really impressed with how we supported each other- Great teamwork!

Year 6 visit to the Imperial War Museum

Date: 14th Nov 2019 @ 11:40pm

We had a brilliant visit to the Imperial War Museum North last week. We found out lots about the Blitz and the effect of war on different people's lives. We especially enjoyed the BIG PICTURE SHOW which was projected on the large walls of the museum and told real people's stories and memories from the Second World War- our new topic this term. It was really special as we commemorated Remembrance Sunday last week when we remember soldiers who have fought in all wars.
