Year 6: Developing chemistry knowledge!

As part of case study 1 in our theme ‘Do You Understand The Magic of Motion?’, children have been studying chemistry to study reversible and irreversible changes. In this experiment, children were tasked with separating materials through using different processes such as filtration. Our next steps are now to look at how steam was used to power trains during the industrial revolution. We will discuss the how energy is made from the coal and we will link this to our reversible and irreversible knowledge.

This was our critique from the lesson:

I notice…We learnt how to separate two substances (Kenzie)

I praise…We used materials to filter our liquid to make it cleaner (Hattie)

I wonder…try different equipment as filters



Public Health at Doncaster Council would like to invite Year 5 and 6 classes to a free performance of the Dementia Play ‘Grandma Remember Me?’ as part of our intergenerational work to raise awareness and increase understanding of Dementia in Doncaster.  The performance is onThursday 14thNovemberat2pmat Bentley Pavilion.  The play lasts approximately 1 hour. A short Q&A session will follow the performance.
About the play:
Grandma Remember Me? is a beautiful story told through a mix of puppetry, drama and storytelling. Written from the perspective of a young child. Lilly whose grandma develops Alzheimer’s. It explores their changing relationship from Lilly’s initial recognition that there is something wrong with her grandma, through the unfolding challenges and final acceptance and understanding of the disease.It explores the wider impact on family, the need for support and understanding within our communities and the importance of memories and relationships within our lives and how to keep and treasure them.The plays supports early diagnosis and shows how it is possible to live well with dementia. 
We have approximately 80 places available for this performance and we are offering these out on a first come first serve basis.
