Weekly Review: 

Another amazing week in Year 6.

The children have written some fantastic balanced arguments base upon a scenario from our English text – Letters from the Lighthouse. Should the local villagers help an injured German pilot, who has crashed into the land surround their village? In addition to their fantastic writing, the children this week have been learning about light in our science lessons alongside how the eye works, making periscopes and carrying out an investigation.
