Friday 5th April
This morning, the juniors took part in the annual ‘Egg Mobile’ contest. This year we have given the project a STEM focus, where the children have worked through their designs in school time, creating the shell of their mobiles at school, finishing off at home. We have been extremely pleased with the number of children in our class who took part this year and the hard work and effort they have put into their egg mobiles - well done. This afternoon, as part of their STEM project work, the children we be evaluating their designs based on the level of success they had in the competition, as well as identifying areas for improvement potentially based on the greater success of others’.
World War Two Trip
Today year 6 went to the Stockport air raid shelters and museum. The children (and even the adults) dressed in World War 2 style clothing and met actors from the shelters. They were then transported back in time to become new evacuees waiting to be billetted to their new homes. It was a great in character day to further understand what it was like for young evacuees of Stockport during the blitz.
All of the children were great, taking part and asking very interesting and thoughtful questions. By the end of the day the children were even excited to start doing chores like cleaning the dishes and laundry!

Wednesday 14th November
"Choose Respect" is the theme of Anti-Bullying week this year so 6LC have been discussing how we can show respect to each other. The class came up with some very thoughtful suggestions, many of which I already see them doing every day. We also looked at how unique everyone is. The class wrote a kind comment about their shoulder partner, that we stuck on the board on the classroom for everyone to see. As part of this, we also created some art work using the word 'Respect'. We examined the art work of four different artists, who were all unique in their own way, and used their pictures as inspiration to create our own unique piece of art.

Anti-Bullying Week has got off to great start. Everyone's odd socks looked great and added a splash of colour around the school. They also helped to highlight how unique we all are.
We have also been selling Anti-Bullying wrist bands, to raise money for the alliance, which were selling fast during break time.
6LC also took part in a virtual reality experience today, looking at bullying. They were immersed in a scenario about bullying and then discussed how the situation could have been handled to put a stop to it as soon as possible. The class conducted a mature and reflective discussion about the scenario.They also talked about why bullies sometimes bully and that it is not always as clear cut as it seems.

As a homework task, Year 6 were asked to prepare a presentation for the class on a topic of their choice. The children did not disappoint and the teachers thoroughly enjoyed listening to all the speakers. We were were treated to some fantastic PowerPoint presentations as well as some special visitors.
Well done to all the children for creating such super presentations.

Wednesday 12th September
Today, 6LC investigated how light travels and bounces of surfaces so we can see. In our first experiment, the children identified the different rays of light (incident and reflected) and then measured the angles of the rays using the normal line. We then made our own periscopes out of cereal boxes which was great fun.
