Well done to last week's Star of the Week - James!

Welcome to week 5. Well done Poppy for winning Star of the Week in Starbooks!

In this afternoon's science experiment, pupils planned and carried out their own investigations (in groups) to see what affects bulb brightness.

- Some groups enquired 'what will happen if I change the amount of light bulbs?'

- Other groups tested 'what will happen If I change the amount of batteries?' 

- A final group questioned 'will the amount of wire affect the brightness of a bulb?'


Each group presented - just like scientists - their conclusions to answer their own theories. 



Autumn newsletter Y6

Welcome to Y6!


What a fantastic start Y6 have made in their final year at Melling! Pupils have worked really hard in their first week with their baseline assessments and some exciting science (building electric circuits to light a lightbulb) and history work (exploring the location and history of the Ancient Maya).
