As the term drew to an end, what better way to celebrate than a disco! Year 6 turned up in force to do a little dancing and spend a lot more on sweets!

Throughout Lent each class organised an enterprise to raise money for Cafod. In the last week of term it was Year 6’s turn.
Year 6 did not let the school down and were very creative in the wide range of games that they thought of. Using online shopping, they were able to work out all of the costs so that nearly every stall managed to make a profit for charity! Well done Holly and Katie for raising the most!
The infants came to play in the morning and then the juniors took part in the afternoon. Thankfully it was a sunny day so we could hold some stalls outside too!
The rest of the school (and teachers) really enjoyed the day Miss McKenna and Mr Waywell were very proud. Well done folks!
Happy Easter! Check out our Easter bunny cakes!
Our irreversible changes topic took us outside too!
Here we used our knowledge of chemical reactions to create some rockets!
Rocket 1: Place a fizzy vitamin tablet and water in a camera film container. Put the lid on and …..pop!
Rocket 2: Place some bicarbonate of soda and some vinegar in a camera film container. Put the lid on and …..pop!
Rocket 3: Place some more bicarbonate of soda and some more vinegar in a 2 litre pop bottle. Hold your hand over the top 0f the bottle while the gas builds up and ….. whooooooooshhh! (you’ll stink of vinegar!)
Rocket 4: Place a Mentos mint in a bottle of Coke and …..whoosh!
One of our science tasks was to see what affect heating had on a range of products.
Armed with a tea-light candle and a spoon, Year 6 set to work at predicting and testing whether the changes would be reversible or if a chemical reaction occurred and they were irreversible.
There were some good smells going on in the classroom and a few phantom ash marks appearing on people’s faces!
