Year Six have been continuing their work lighting fires using a flint and striker. This week they experimented with some petroleum jelly to see the effect that this had on their cotton wool pads. Harry worked really hard to catch a spark on a piece of char cloth using an actual piece of flint and a steel striker. To prove that his first attempt was not luck, he repeated the process !
Year Six have been using the databases that they created about the climate of different Mexican cities to answer key questions. They learnt how to use and / or searches and the differences that this made.
Well done to our boys who took part in the second round of Blaydon District 7-a-side league last night. They showed great commitment and teamwork!
