We are mindful not to place any undue pressure on our children at this already anxious time but appreciate it may help some families to follow some routine.
Please find attached an optional menu of ideas for Year 6 to complete over the next few weeks.
It is important that the children have balance during each day. Try and complete one from each column to ensure the children have a variety of physical, academic and mindfulness activities.
Challenge! Can you complete every activity before ‘Learning Menu 2’ is added in 3 weeks time?
On Wednesday Y6 had a fabulous day out at Woolsthorpe Manor; the birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton. Highlights of the day included a guided tour of his home, including the room in which he tested out his colour spectrum theory with a prism, and of course the famous apple tree.
In the science barn, children learnt about forces including gravity and friction, and blended coloured lights to create white light.
During a mirror workshop, the children used torches and mirrors to reflect a beam of light through various holes and around obstacles in a box, consolidating their work on angles of incidence and reflection.
All the volunteers were very impressed with the children’s scientific knowledge and the quality of the questions they asked.
