Science Week Fun!

This week Year 6 have had lots of fun exploring our science week topic of ‘Changes’. We have taken part in a workshop run by a real-life scientist where we were able to make our own slime, we have conducted experiments in class and were even able to help researchers from the University of Oxford to classify a variety of penguins. In addition to this, today we created a ‘natural colour’ wheel. First, we researched colour wheels and discussed how the primary colours can be mixed to make secondary colours then we went outside to find where these colours would be naturally occurring. We were able to find many examples around our school environment. Once back in class we grouped them together by colour and then arranged into our own colour wheels. We enjoyed looking at the way the colours change. We have really enjoyed enhancing our learning this week and exploring our natural...

Hogwarts in the snow

Year 6 had studied a variety of scenes from both the written and film versions of Harry Potter, while analysing how flashbacks can be shown in different media. This trip was an excellent chance for them to see many elements of the film come to life. While at the studio tour, the children were able to see many different elements from the films. Some of their favourite moments from the day included: seeing the Great Hall, which was set up for a Christmas feast; getting the opportunity to board The Hogwarts Express; completing the broomstick riding experience; and taking part in a wand masterclass. To make this trip even more special, we visited during the ‘Hogwarts in the Snow’ season, which sees the whole studio decorated for Christmas. In addition, the children participated in an English workshop and discovered the secrets of how the animal actors in the Harry Potter film series were trained. They then created their own written instructions for a film animal of their choice to...
