Reflection

posted 20 Sep 2019, 08:35 by Oliver Mills

This week in Science, Year 6 have explored the mechanics of reflection. Through experimentation, the children explored how when a light beam is angled on a mirrored surface, the angle at which the light reflects away from the mirror will be different depending on the position of the light source. Our tests showed that the angle at which the light beam struck the mirror (angle of incidence) was always equal to the angle at which the light beam reflected away from the mirror (angle of reflection). 


Air Raid Writing

As part of our World War II topic, children have been learning about The Blitz and thinking about what it might have been like to have been the victim of an air raid. To inform their writing, children have read accounts of the blitz, looked at photographs and films produced at the time and engaged in drama activities.

Leavers 2019

Goodbye and good luck to all our Year 6 leavers!  

Year 6 Reports and SATs Results

posted 12 Jul 2019, 05:08 by Oliver Mills

Children will receive their end of year reports today which also contain their Key Stage 2 SATs results. As we have said before, a test score is not the definitive measure of a child. We feel the children's reports provide a fuller picture of a child's time in Year 6 and would encourage parents to celebrate the breadth of the children's achievements. 

We would also ask that reports are opened at home to respect children's privacy. 

Leavers Sleepover

posted 8 Jul 2019, 23:53 by Oliver Mills

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's sleepover such a great success. Parents, thank you for helping assemble and dissemble tents; this year we had some truly towering constructions. Children, thank you for being a delight all evening. 

Tears were shed; good times were had. 
 

Summer 2 Week 6 & 7 Home learning

There will be no spellings or homework for the remainder of the school year; this is to allow children to focus on preparing for the end of year play and the leavers assembly.

GUS Art

posted 5 Jul 2019, 01:27 by Oliver Mills

After completing our week of Growing Up Skills lessons, Year 6 have created some artwork to show some of the different emotions we may go through during adolescence. In particular, many children chose to express the moody side of being a teenager that they may or may not have modeled on teenagers at home!
