Year 6 went head-to-head again with Year 5 for our second Science week challenge! We had to build a self-propelling car that would travel the furthest distance possible. It was more difficult than we thought, but Year 6 showed some excellent collaboration, resourcefulness and perseverance!
Year 6 have had a fantastic afternoon working at Experience Barnsley with local artist Paul, also known as Fabric Lenny. We created some amazing continuous line drawings that will become part of an exhibition soon. Famous artists in Year 6!
On Friday Year 5 and 6 went head to head in the Science Week bridge challenge! We tested the strongest bridge from each class to see which would be the ultimate winner… it was close! Year 5’s bridge held more weight, but it gave us lots to think about!
Year 6 have made a great start to Science week; we spent the afternoon designing and building our bridges. I saw some fantastic perseverance and collaboration; I wonder whose bridge we will choose for the head-to-head challenge with Year 5?
Year 6 really stretched their perseverance and reasoning muscles today to try and complete the chair challenge that Year 5 set for us! It was much trickier than it looked, but we did a fantastic job. Well done Year 6!
