    Orienteering

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Today, the children had to follow a map of the school playground to find numbers in order and stamp their cards just like they would in a real orienteering set up. The children were great, ran fast and worked really well in their pairs to be the first team back.

    Can I explain how light is reflected using mirrors?

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    This afternoon year 6 have been learning about how light travels in a straight line to hit an object, is then reflected into a mirror and then reflected from the mirror into our eyes in order to see the object. This object may be something behind a wall or even round a corner. We tested this knowledge by building a small assault course and completing it only using a mirror to see where we were going.

    Today, year 6 performed a news report, speaking to witnesses about King Duncan's murder while staying in Macbeth's castle. They were brilliant and we loved the way the groups moved seamlessly between reporters in a studio and witnesses.
