Year 6

Year 6 trip to Edinburgh 

We have just finished our meal out and then been on a ghost walk around historic Edinburgh. We have lots of pictures but find it hard to upload them as the Internet connection is very slow. 

As part of a technology project Year 6 would like you to fill in these short surveys to help them develop their products. 



Year 6 children have been learning about the fossil hunter Mary Anning and we tried our hand at examining fossils.



Year 6 children have been carrying out light investigations and using iPads to create their very own video show 'The Light Lab' to explain their findings.

Light Investigations

The Siege of Syracuse: War Machines
During the Siege of Syracuse, Archimedes invented many war machines to keep the Romans at bay.  Year 6 children have been trying to recreate some of them.
Some truly remarkable machines, inspired by the Siege of Syracuse.
