Year 6 News
Year 6 have been researching and learning about how fairground rides work as part of their DT and Science learning. They have designed a carousel fairground ride which spins on an axle that is powered by a battery. They had to wire up their circuits and ensure that their carousels could stand freely and spin without anything breaking or falling over. The children did an excellent job of decorating their fairground rides, an imaginative and educational project!
Year 6 have also been studying the book ‘Clockwork’ by Philip Pullman. This is a scary tale of mystery and death, and the children have greatly enjoyed writing about the scary characters and making up their own stories based on the book.
