We made a 'toilet roll timeline' to look at how scientists think life on Earth has evolved. We found out that they think humans have only been around for a very short period of time - the last few cm of a very long piece of toilet roll paper.
We made it !! The SATS are finished.
Well done to all of Year 6 for their hard work, particularly in the last few weeks.
Also a big THANK YOU to all the staff involved with providing the 'Breakfast club' last week; it really gave us a sense of togetherness and set us up well for the tests.
Happy New Year !
A gentle reminder that Year 6 pupils get weekly homework sheets and, if possible, are expected to login in regularly to 'Mathletics' and 'Reading Eggs' to keep up to date with work set or to practice any areas that need further support. If you have forgotten your login please ask in class.
We've been looking at variables in Science experiments -
Independent (what we change); Dependent (what we measure); Control (what we keep the same)
We made different circuits to test our ideas about what affects the brightness of a bulb.
"Many thanks to everyone, but especially my new class, for making me feel so welcome at Northwood. It's a joy to be part of such a wonderful school." - Mr Fisher
What an 'enlightening' start to the year!
In Science, we have been looking at LIGHT and SHADOWS. Come and try our 'interactive light display' - it's just outside the school hall.
