High Voltage!

In Science we are investigating electricity. We are constructing circuits with an increasing number of components and contrasting the effects this has on the function of the components.

HOLES

Year 6 have really enjoyed reading the book Holes. Some activities included creating models of the deadly Yellow spotted lizards and writing information texts about them. We also inspected the camp and wrote a letter to the sheriff urging him to close it down. We enjoyed using ICT to write newspaper reports about Kate Barlow as well as make wanted posters. We were glad to not come face to face with the Warden and her rattle snake venom nail polish!
