To kick off British science week with a bang we investigated our very own crime scene. Someone had stolen our chance card prizes so we had to get to the bottom of it!
From the clues we found in the forest school area our science leaders taught us how to read secret messages; eliminate suspects from their footprint; split the contents in ink to see if it matches another and to test finger prints! After all that hard work, it's safe to say we caught the culprit!
This year for world book day our theme was around the book Perfectly Norman. From reading the book we decided that the main moral of the story is 'to be true to yourself'. We had a great day doing lots of activities around being ourselves!
We had a brilliant time on Wednesday afternoon putting on our Y6 bazaar!
Thank you to all the parents who came and joined in - your time and effort is really appreciated.
The Y6 Team
Today 6W and half of 6K attended a Healthy Hearts Workshop at Lancashire County Cricket Club, where we learnt all about the heart and the body; made healthy snacks; ate lunch in the press box and even got to play some cricket ourselves! We had a fantastic time!
Khalid Mahamed in 6K won a cricket bat for his participation and teamwork for the day!
Play this game!!! https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/100912180/#editor
We are looking at a binary search today - where the computer keeps halving the numbers so it guesses your answer faster!
What is happening in this algorithm?
What is the computer being told to do each time?
Explain in your own words as a comment below.
This afternoon, 6W were using felt tips and adding water to make the inks bleed into each other. Have a look at their creative ideas.
Here is the link to the Scratch jigsaw that we looked at last lesson - we will be starting again with this one!
You will need to complete this jigsaw and write about how the algorithm works before you can try the challenge jigsaw below.
Can you move these blocks to make the algorithm work?

In Computing this half term we are learning about algorithms and trying to understand and explain how they work to solve problems. We will use our logical reasoning to try and debug any issues with the programs we look at.
Have a look at the different algorithms on this Scratch program - how would you order them to make the random search generator work?
Remember to think about the order the different events need to happen and make sure the algorithm matches this. Use the flow chart below as a guide.
