Year 6 have been investigating a crime! The children worked through a series of investigations to find out who the suspect was;
Investigate and demonstrate that light travels in straight lines (exploring)
Investigate how light reflects (make a periscope).
Investigate shadows and how they change as a result of light sources.
Explore split light (finding ‘rainbows’).
Investigate coloured light mixing.
On Tuesday, 12 year 6's went to a tag rugby tournament on the astroturf at Tiverton High School. We finished in 3rd place but played as an excellent team! In total we played 4 games- we won 1 game and lost 3 but they were really tight games. One game was so close that the referee decided the first one to score was the winner. We had great fun!

It was great to have Father Paul come in to visit Year 6 this week, he spoke to the children about how the sacraments help to restore people and the impact they may have on someone's life. The children posed lots of interesting questions and enjoyed listening to Father Paul's responses..
Well done to our Year 6 who tackled their SATs with determination, maturity and a brilliantly relaxed manner. We are very proud of all that they have achieved this year.
Year 6 have been using concrete resources to demonstrate their reasoning around equivalent fractions as well as their knowledge of the equivalence between fractions, decimals and percentages.
Year 6 enjoyed performing their assembly to the whole school and quizzing everybody very thoroughly. Thanks to them, the school have learnt all about how to be SMART when online: Safe - never give out personal information about yourself; Meeting - never agree to meet anyone who you have only met online. The children shared their favourite top tip - if you don't know what they smell like, you don't know them so don't meet them; Accepting - never accept emails or pop ups from people or sites you don't know; Reliable - not everything on the internet is true so use your brain to make a sensible decision; Tell someone - if you are unsure about anything or anyone online, tell a responsible adult.
Thank you to all who came and watched the assembly. We hope you enjoyed the chance to look at the children's books over tea ad biscuits afterwards!
In science, we have been learning about the heart and lungs and their functions within the circulatory system. We carried out a fair test to investigate the effect of exercise on our heartbeats.
Year 6 have been learning about e-safety and have written leaflets to explain 'How to Stay Safe from Cyberbullies'. As part of their learning, year 6 dramatised scenarios in which they could find themselves victims of cyber-bullying.
