Week 2: Wacky Scientists and Interesting Inventions!

Welcome to your theme for the week beginning 30/3/20!


Wacky Scientists and Interesting Inventions!


As you are Year 6, you can interpret this theme however you may want to. You may want to:

  • Make a Scratch project about a chosen Scientist or Invention. 
  • Make a powerpoint about a chosen Scientist or Invention. 
  • Try and re-create their inventions/experiments at home (ask your parents about this one, we don't want anything being blown up!)
  • Make a poster 
  • Make a timeline about interesting inventions throughout the years
  • Make a fact book 
  • Stage a debate between two scientists with opposing views (Try Aristotle and Galileo) 
  • Make a fake Wikipedia page about your scientist and their invention!


Keep your eyes peeled throughout this week, I may have a go at another experiment! Hopefully it will end up more successful than the cake... blush Check Updates from Miss Lees to see how I get on. There are some resources to help you with this week's project underneath here. 


I will continue to update the additional home learning resources for more specific Maths, English and Spelling resources. 


Miss you all!
