Year 6 went to the Livestock Centre for a morning of lifeskills. They had a number of different workshops run by a number of agencies including the fire brigade, the police, the RNLI and Western Power. The children had a lot of fun while being taught about how to keep themselves safe in the wider world.
Mr Upston spent a morning with each Year 6 class teaching them a variety of first aid skills including CPR, the recovery position and how to use bandages. The children really enjoyed themselves and learned some life long skills.
You could use these videos to help practice the songs from our play.
The sun is shining, the children are rested- not sure about the adults though. We enjoyed a day of kayaking, raft building and archery yesterday. Today, some of the children will be having a go at Bush craft and surfing. The children are behaving impeccably and are an absolute credit to our school.
All settled into camp. Had an amazing start with a bit of coasteering. Well done to Max, Jack, Bonnie, Emily and Paris for overcoming their fears and giving it a go. Had a good first night with everybody asleep by 10.30. All up and ready for some kayaking, raft building and orienteering today. More photographs to follow.
Year 6 have been busy creating their own decorated Indian elephants as part of their tracker time. They mixed their paint, used sponges to create different effects for the skin then decorated them with patterns, material, sequins and gems. These elephants were inspired by the Hindu God Ganesh; a wise God and the remover of obstacles and difficulties and because every year in India they have an elephant festival where they celebrate the animal.
Year 6 had a brilliant time during Science Week. We took part in lots of really exciting activities, including a visit from The Wildlife Trust where we looked at micro-organisms and classification.
We were also learning about the human body and in particular the function of the heart. We created a huge circulatory system on the playground to help us understand the journey of blood around our body. We also watched as our teachers dissected a real animal's heart and lungs to help us understand the function of each part.
Mrs York challenged us to plan and carry out a science investigation using gingerbread men. We read the story and then created an investigation to find out how different liquids effect the gingerbread. We wrote hypotheses based on our scientific understanding and worked hard to ensure that our investigation was a fair test by only changing one variable.
