This week, year 6 have been learning about refraction. We have been exploring how prims refract light to show the spectrum of colour, how rainbows are formed and the ‘arrows through water’ trick. Take a look at the rainbows that we have been creating. Well done to Islam (6B) for discovering that on a sunny day, the sun provides a better light source than a torch.
For more details or a refresher, check out the videos I have added to explore refraction further.
Next week we will be looking at shadows. What time of day do you have the longest shadow? When do you have multiple shadows?
I have had the pleasure of teaching year 6 about Light. We have been demonstrating that light appears to travel in straight lines, how reflection works and how rainbows are formed.
Next week we will be looking at refraction; Do you notice anything unusual when you see something through a glass of water or when you go swimming?
I look forward to learning with you next week!
Today year 6 took part in a virtual lesson with Chorlton High South as a taster session for next year.
We looked at messages in the style of Pop art linking to contemporary issues. As a starter for this, we learnt how to draw letters using a shadow method and chose complimenting colours with stand out patterns.
After learning from home for such a long time, we were certainly ready to get back to school! All the children were so happy, positive and excited to see their friends, meet their new teachers and get to work in their new classrooms.
We have been so busy over the past two weeks: getting suck into new maths and English lessons, starting our WW2 history topic, developing new techniques in art and some extra special P.E. sessions with our Manchester City coaches! We've even had our first virtual Anchor session with Ed, which was still just as fun, and our assembly with Mr. Wheeldon, where we could see all of our friends from other classes on the screen.
Have a look at what we have been doing :)
