Gentleshaw Wildlife Sanctuary visit
Friday 29th June 2019

 

As part of our Evolution topic, Gentleshaw brought a range of different birds, reptiles and mammals into school to see us. 

We were given a talk about the evolution of tawny owls, barn owls, kestrels, snakes and skunks.  Then, we were able to ask questions about the animals, stroke and hold some of them, watch others fly and draw two animals of our choice – the skunk and the owl. 

It was a very interesting morning and we learnt lots about our Evolution topic. 

Thank you Gentleshaw!

Careers Afternoon
Thursday 28th June 2019

 

Our Careers Fair this year was a huge success! We were lucky enough to showcase a wide range of jobs and professions across the afternoon.

 

At our event, we learnt about being in the police force and the armed forces, nursing, hairdressing, veterinary nursing , engineering, butchery, floristry, accountancy and running your own business, computer programming and moving up to secondary school.

 

The children asked lots of fantastic questions and were very inspired by the variety of careers.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all those involved for making our second Careers Afternoon a great experience for the children (Perkins, Perry's Butchers, Nurse Jones, Shires Vets, Mrs Egan, Mrs Sillito and daughter, Zoe, Mr and Mrs Fortune, PSCO Gareth Higgins and Sir Graham Balfour - others to be added soon!).

Year 6 Enterprise Project

(4th and 10th June 2019)

Working with a professional artist and ceramicist, Year 6 designed and produced a set of products to be sold at the Summer Fair. The aim is to make enough money to cover the costs of materials and services with hopefully a little extra as profit.

As well as the skills of art and design, Year 6 will also need to apply their maths skills to calculate the necessary pricing and English skills to market and promote the product to the public.

SATS are over! Yipppeeee!
To celebrate the end of our testing week, we were lucky enough to have a film, pizza and popcorn party afternoon.

Here our some pictures from our well earned treat:

Year 6 Spelling 'Bee'

 

On Friday 3rd May, we held a Spelling 'Bee' in the School Hall. 
The children were given a range of different spellings to work out from unscrambling letters and playing hangman, to group and individual mini spelling tests. 
The children were all very excited to take part and had been working very hard to learn their spelling words. 

 

The impact of the Spelling 'Bee' was fantastic and both Year 6 classes were competing against each other. 

 

Here are our top spellers from the competition: Freddie, Evie, Ellie, Izzy, Tommy, Vinnie, Finley, Leo, Callum and James

 

Our overall winners from the competition was Year 6 I.  Well done to both Year 6 classes!

We then used our radio reports to write newspaper reports on the events of Banquo's death.

We hope you enjoy reading them.

Gravity demonstration.

As part of Science Week we studied Stephen Hawking and the phenomenon of black holes: it was mind-bending. We also bent space using heavy spheres to imitate the effect gravity has and help understand what happens with a black hole.

D&T - Zoetropes

Year 6 studied how early moving picture were made in the Victorian era, and created their own 'zoetropes' to animate drawings.
Here are a couple of examples by, Jasmine, Kendra and Scarlet.
