Friction pictures for the blog.jpg

In science this half term, we have explored and investigated forces. The children have explored drag forces and investigated how items of different sizes and weight fall to the ground. Interstingly, the children found that the items hit the ground at the same time and were able to give and share amazing explanations of why this happens.


In the picture above you can see the children using newtonmetres to measure the force it takes to drag a shoe across a variety of different surfaces. They then went on to record and explain the results they got to the class. We compared the results with our classes to ensure we did not have any anomalies.  

Amazing writing Year 6

This half term, Year 6 have been working incredibly hard on their writing. We have written for a range of purposes -including explanations, poetry and narratives. We have worked hard on our vocabulary, punctuation and the structure of our senences. Next half term we will continue to build on these skills. Take a look at some of the writing we have produced.

Year 6 Sculpture

Date: 11th Oct 2021 @ 8:34am



Year 6 have been using Modroc and wire to create their own Granny sculptures. After reading the novel 'Granny' by Anthony Horowitz, we were inspired by Futurism Artists to create our own sculptures. Our next steps are to paint them bronze and evaluate how well they have turned out!
