In our science lessons on Electricity, we have investigated a range of circuits,using bulbs, buzzers, motors and switches. This week, we made a clown’s face complete with a flashing red nose and a spinning bow tie. We loved it!
This week’s spellings all contain silent letters:-

We have enjoyed our science making circuits with light bulbs,buzzers and motors. We have also learnt how to draw a diagram of a circuit using the symbols and we found out what things were conductors and what things are insulators.
Year 6 is a really important year with transition to Secondary at the end of the year.
Homework is a crucial way of helping children to remember the topics that are being revised in class and that will be assessed in the SATS in May.
Homework for week beginning 2nd October is Electrical circuit symbols and multiplying decimals by 10, 100, 1000. This needs to be returned on Monday 7th October.

This week’s spellings are:-
vicious suspicious conscious ambitious infectious
precious delicious malicious cautious nutritious
Spellings for this week:-
official special artificial facial crucial
partial confidential essential initial influential
Spellings are given on Monday each week and checked on the following Monday. It is essential (one of our spellings!) that the children learn these spellings really carefully in class and at home each week so that they can increase the amount of words that they know and use them in their writing.
Today I have set the challenge to make our blog posts more exciting!! The children have spent their time looking at other school’s blogs and discussing what makes them interesting. We have also looked at how we can appeal to a greater audience.
Our first task is to get other people reading our publications and to leave comments about what they think, so that we can improve.
Our second task is to get our work viewed by an audience further away than Britian!
Let the challenge begin….Mrs Nash x
