Y6…10.1.2020 – Week 1

A very happy New Year to all our readers!  Such a lot has been going on in Y6 since the last blog.

We finished our science topic on Light by making periscopes and by investigating chromotography.  Christmas then took over and the children worked hard on the Y5 & Y6 Christmas play entitled “A Very Silent Night” which told the story of the writing of the well-loved carol and its place in the Christmas Truce on the batlefields of World War 1.  Not your usual Primary school yuletide fare, I agree, but its message is as important as ever.  We also made Christmas crackers and I’m sure much fun was had by all around the homes of Wallsend when you tried to pull them…

Thanks for all the presents!

We’re back and the Y6 scientists revised the essential concepts of dissolving and evaporating by trying to solve a fiendishly tricky challenge: they were presented with four apparently identical liquids, all clear and odourless – a salt solution, a sugar solution, mineral water and tap water; which one was which? No tasting allowed.
