Eye, eye!

We have been learning about Light in Science and this week we concentrated on our "Eyes".

Sitting in the dark with our eyes closed for a few seconds and then looking at each others pupils to see what happened!

We were amazed to learn that our eyes see images upside down and it is our brain that flips the image the right way round!

We drew and labelled an eye, using the scientific names.  

Ask your child what the different parts of the eye are:  SCLERA, PUPIL, IRIS, CORNEA, LENS, OPTIC NERVE, RETINA.



Panto Pandemonium!!!

We're going Panto mad in Year 6!

This week we have written a Rags to Riches fairytale narrative, or a twist to the classic Cinderella, Riches to Rags.

We assessed our writing using the Year 6 Point Score Challenge.


BBF's Got Talent!

This week our super-bendy Faye is

Year 6's  BBF Talent star!

" I go to gymnastics every Monday and we

train on the beams, bar and the floor.

I do enjoy it!"

Writing Blogs!

After a trip to Crucial Crew last week,

Year 6 have been writing blogs about

the important safety skills we

were taught.

Maths Challenges!

We enjoy challenging our thinking and working together.

Each week, a different group of children take on the Maths Challenge and work together to solve the problems.

We record our findings in the Year 6 Floorbook.

BBF's Got Talent!

This week, Shane has told us all about his talent.

"This is my first house from my village of houses.  

I make them out of plasticine.  

These houses are hollow and take about half an hour to make.  

You need quite a lot of patience!  

I put things inside the houses for the characters that live there."


We love your talent Shane!
