January 21, 2018: Amazing Space Poetry
Class 6 have produced some phenomenal Space poetry this week. Their imagination and creativity really shone through their writing. Well done all of you.

December 5, 2017: Light and reflection!
Today, class 7 spent the afternoon investigating how light travels. We used a torch in a very dark room to think about how light waves travel in straight lines and reflect off objects back into our eyes. Class 7 now know the difference between opaque, translucent and transparent objects. Mirrors reflect light perfectly because they are so smooth, but it isn't easy to use reflected light in a mirror to trace a pattern, as we all now know! It is even more challenging to write your name when only looking in a mirror. Give it a go if you don't believe us!
