Science Week

During Science Week, we really enjoyed doing lots of experiments. We did an experiment with Mentos and Coke and it was very exciting watching the pop explosion! We also made ice-cream in 5 minutes out of milkshake and we made our very own lava lamps with water, oil and alka seltzers! As part of Science Week, we also created a spiritual garden with 5/6M and 5P. In our class, we contributed by writing inspiring words on stones, planted flowers in tyres and created bird feeders and fairy houses out of bottles, modroc and paint. Here are some pictures of what we did; we hope you like them!

World Book Day

We had lots of fun dressing up for World Book Day as our favourite characters from our favourite books. We did lots of fun activities during the day, our favourite one being reading a story to the children in Reception.

Our trip to the Yorkshire Museum

We had a fantastic time on our school trip with the rest of Years 5 and 6 to the Yorkshire Museum in York. Our visit was linked to our Science topic ‘Darwin’s Daring Discoveries’ where we learnt all about evolution and inheritance. At the Yorkshire Museum, we met Charles Darwin himself, where he took us on his journey onboard ‘The Beagle’. We found out lots about what he discovered and we got to be explorers too!

World War 1 Workshop

We had a brilliant day in November in our WW1 workshop. All children in Years 5 and 6 spent the whole day learning about WW1 and finding out some fascinating facts. Mr B. came in and taught us about the role of a stretcher bearer in the trenches. He brought in lots of artefacts for us to look at and we even had the chance to try on a real medical pack from the war… we were surprised by how heavy is was! The workshop brought our learning to life and showed us what life would have been like for soldiers during this terrible war. Here are some photos for you to enjoy…

Maths Inspire Morning October 2016

Our topic this half-term has been ‘Amazonian Adventures’ where we have been learning about the country of Brazil. We have particularly focused on the Amazon rainforest and learnt lots about the different animals that live there. Our Inspire Morning this term had a maths focus. Children in 6R and their parents/grandparents were challenged to make rainforest creatures out of 3D shapes. They had to draw their nets from scratch and use them to create their creature. We had some fantastic designs! A big thank you to all the adults who came along to support your child, we hope you had fun! Here are some of the animals that were made…

Roald Dahl Day 2016

We had a great time celebrating Roald Dahl Day! We came to school dressed as our favourite Roald Dahl characters and we focused on his autobiographical book ‘Boy’ during our lessons. We enjoyed reading the chapter ‘The Great Mouse Plot’ and we created comic strips based on what happened. Her we are dressed as our favourite characters…
