Year 6 Science

9th May 2018

Year 6’s current Science topic is Let it Shine! We have been exploring the way light travels and how shadows are created. We have discovered that light travels in straight lines from its source and that when you place an opaque object in front of the light, it will block the straight line and create a shadow of the object. We also noticed through careful experimentation, that if you move an object closer to the light source, its shadow will be larger than if you move it further from the light source.   Following these discoveries, we watched the beginning…

Hello Normand Croft community! We are the brand new Digital Leaders. Our job is to learn all about the technology in our school so we can help others to learn about it too.

Unity

18th April 2018

This half term, Normand Croft’s shared value is unity. Year 6 discussed this as a class and what it means to us. We came up with a list of ways we can be unified in order to help our learning and happiness at school. In Year 6 we will show unity by … helping each other working in a team co-operating with others in a respectful way speaking kindly to one another sharing with others accepting people for who they are listening to each other using our time wisely and staying on task working together to meet our class targets

Exploring Extreme Environments

16th March 2018

In our Geography unit ‘Exploring Extreme Environments’, Year 6 have begun learning about Antarctica and how Ernest Shackleton aimed to be the first person to walk across the whole of the continent even before anyone really knew how vast it was. We already know some information about Antarctica and that Shackleton’s expedition was not successful. We are looking forward to finding out more information about Antarctica, so we have posed some questions. How do you get to Antarctica? Is Antarctica 100% ice? How long can you survive there? Was it warmer there, when Shackleton explored, than it is now? Recently, in our lesson, we…

Readers’ Cup Competition

16th March 2018

On Monday 12th March, some pupils from Year 6 participated in the Readers’ Cup against three other local schools. We had to read some books and answer questions about them. We had to practice for a long time and be ready to participate in the tournament. We knew the books really well by the time the competition came around. Before the competition a writer, Ally Sherrick, spoke to us about how she became a published author. The competition was exciting and nerve-wracking. Even though we didn’t win, it was still fun! Assad & Sara, Year 6​
