Thinking about how we see

On Monday, we were thinking about how we see things.

We used pieces of string to represent the direction the light was travelling. We knew that the light needed to leave the source. It then needed to hit the object we were looking at and then bounce, or reflect, from this into our eye.

Next, we tried different scenarios such as looking at a car behind in the rear view mirror and looking at the back of your head at the hairdressers.

Team Building in Y6

Today we enjoyed some team building challenges on the playground. First we tried the bench challenge where the children needed to reorganise their positions on the bench without falling off. Then it was the swamp challenge – children needed to cross the swamp in their team without standing on the playground.

The aim was develop communication and listening skills. The children even managed to complete one of the tasks in silence!
