In Science this week the children worked in small groups to build their own refracting telescopes! Most groups found that when they looked through the lenses images appeared magnified and upside down.
This week the children had their final peacemakers session. This was a chance for the children to reflect on what they have learnt over the duration of the course. The children then started to make their own individual ‘zines’ to help guide them through secondary school. The idea is that the children keep them with them, maybe in their pencil case, to help them if they are ever feeling worried at school.
Year 6 have really been enjoying their sessions each week with Jackie from Peacemakers. Over the last couple of sessions the children have been working in pairs to design their own hot air balloon. They have also been thinking about what helps them to fire up their imagination and creativity just as a hot air balloon is fired up to fly away.
This week Jackie brought a super size world map with her for the children to see – they absolutely loved it and so did all the teachers! They started with a quick geography warm up before reading about different people from around the world and what they had achieved.
In PSHE, Year 6 have been discussing what is meant by the word relationship and what they think makes a good relationship.
These are some of the ideas they had:
