Year 6

Posted: Mar 27, 2023 by: Tara (Tara) on: Forest Blog

There has been a lot of rain this month and not a lot of sun, so our solar project has had to be deferred.

Year 6 have still been able to learn about: solar energy; advantages and disadvantages of; how electricity is made in photovoltaic cells and to visualise how photons (light) cause electrons to flow and create electricity in a solar panel.

Fingers crossed that next session we have sun and can explore simple solar circuits.

George and Leo: We made four different types of fire: a lean to; a trench fire; log cabin and a star fire. We lit two of them at the same time to see which one burnt best. The log cabin was best because of the air flow and it had the best heat distribution.

Many thanks to George's grandma, who has kindly donated many seeds ready for the growing season.

Harrison: I made this swing to be either a sit down or a stand up swing. If you sit facing the tree you can launch yourself to swing. I used an underhand knot.
