Road Safety in Year 6

Week beginning Monday 26th November was ‘Road Safety’ week at Peter’s.   However, Year 6 have been practising their road awareness skills each week on their walk to our local swimming baths.   We are becoming much more aware of the dangers and how to remain safe when walking in our busy town.   The journey to and from the pool is becoming much more efficient and therefore journey time is reduced due to our increased awareness of the roads and safely crossing.    We are almost fully prepared for our transition to secondary school – we just need to keep on practising.

 

Year 6 Blue Science Day

Year Six Blue have spent our science investigation week looking at the significant work of 2 key scientists.  We have learnt about how significant Albert Einstein’s work was in the creation of the atomic bomb and how the work of Isaac Newton has helped us to understand more about how we see colour.

We carried out an investigation using colour filters to help us understand more about the 7 colours in our spectrum of light.  We even got to write secret messages which were only visible when using a specific colour of filter.  Finally we took part in a science workshop involving light and sound.

This has been a fantastic week and has inspired many potential scientists in the class.

Year 6 blue samba workshop

Year 6 Blue had their first workshop today as part of a 6 week programme to learn all about samba music.  They spent time examining the various instruments and learning the theories of samba music.  Over the next few weeks we will be learning several samba songs and performing them just before Christmas.

Year Six Green Super Science Week

Year Six have had an informative and investigative Science Week.   We have looked at the significant work of 2 key scientists.  We have learnt about how significant Albert Einstein’s work was in the creation of the atomic bomb and how the work of Isaac Newton has helped us to understand more about how we see colour.

Our investigation with filters was great fun and helped us to understand more about the 7 colours in our spectrum of light.  We even got to write secret messages which were only visible when using a specific colour of filter.

The main thing this week has taught us is that science is amazing and we most definitely want to find out more!
