Global Citizens - Year 6
18 November 2019

As part of our School Vision Week, Year 6 have been displaying how we can all be good global citizens and help people less fortunate than ourselves.

Year 6 put together a presentation about the difficulties and health problems that are encountered in countries with poor sanitation.

We decided that we would raise money to twin a toilet in our school with one in a poorer country.

We are hoping to raise £60 by having a cake sale and asking pupils to come to school dressed in blue for a donation of £1.

Year 6 have lots of exciting activities to share with each class in order to raise awareness for this worthwhile cause.

Lighthouse Prototypes
14 November 2019

Our lighthouses are progressing as we used nets to assemble our prototypes. We used our prototypes to think about any alterations or improvements we could make before we construct our final products. We thought about how to make a stable, rigid platform for our lamps to sit on inside the lighthouses. We also drew electric circuits and look forward to testing them out once our models are complete.
