Year 6 Blue make periscopes

To start our science topic of light, Year 6 Blue were given a challenge to build their own periscopes using some of the principles of light they had learnt about earlier in their lesson.  It was an extremely challenging task, and a perfect chance for the children to implement some of the ‘growth mind set’ skills that we have been working on recently.  You can see some of the pictures below:

 

 

Year 6 Growth Mindset Workshop

Today both Year 6 classes took part in a workshop all about growth mindset with the Believe, Achieve, Succeed Academy.  We will be working with Luke from the academy over the next 5 weeks to help the children develop a resilient, positive approach to their learning and to enable them to believe in themselves as they tackle an important year.  You can see pictures from session 1 below:
