November 2022 in Year 5/6

As an exciting way to conclude our Science topic on Space, we had a visit from a planetarium. We used our knowledge to ask loads of questions and further our understanding. Our new Science topic, Light, has been lots of fun too. We have investigated magnifiers, prisms and mirrors to help us understand reflections and shadows. We made a periscope to enable us to see around corners. Our school Councillors visited Hertford Castle to represent Wheatcroft at a Remembrance service. They got to talk to the current Mayor and see her sign the covenant which promises to look after ex-service people and their families. We also celebrated parliament week by writing our own manifestos.
