What an amazing week we've had in Year 6!    
We enjoyed discovering about the metal Zinc and lots of other metals
from the periodic table with Mr. Conway...
 

 

 

 

 Mr Conway melted metals

 

...and used a mould to create this heart!

 

 

 

 

 We discovered the dangerous
contents of a battery
 Making a battery using a lemon, and two metals.
Can you find out the names of the metals?

Spoons made from moulds with intricate patterns 

 
 
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Catalyst Museum in Runcorn!
We became expert forensic scientists in 'Murder at the Manor' and awesome bridge engineers...

ANCIENT GREEK ART
 
...and in Art we've been making Ancient Greek pots with artist in resident, Jo Inchley!
We had an fantastic morning making our Greek coil pots. Greek pots have survived over 4,000 years and are an important historical source, with pictures depicting Greek life.
 
We learned how to use the coils to gradually build the shape of the pot. We had to  make sure we smoothed down the clay inside and out in order to strengthen the sides. In the pictures below you will see our amazing creations gradually emerging. We'll keep you posted on the final results!
