We began this afternoon by revising the key vocabulary from our light topic so we could use it in our work on space. Our friends had to guess which word we were were thinking of. We used this pentagon to see how we had to share our word with our friends. Here we are having a go!
In science yesterday we finished our unit of work on light by applying what we already know about the way light travels to other experiments. These experiments were to do with refraction. Refraction is the bending of light as it passes from one substance to another. Here are some of our experiments. Ask your children what they saw!
Look at this you tube clip to see you what we could see.

Just a note about end of term reports for Y6 children.
The information on the reports is based on the recent assessments and gives an indication of how they would get on if they were to sit the SATs today. We still have much of the curriculum to cover and expect most children to improve over the course of the year. If you have any questions please do get in touch.

The Y6 Christmas Market was a fantastic success yesterday. Thank you so much for your support. The children really enjoyed planning and promoting their stalls. The staff were very impressed by their enthusiasm and their organisation.
As part of our Advent preparations, we will be holding simple Advent prayer services in our classroom at the end of each day.
