FUN IN LESSONS

BLOOD

This afternoon, there was chance for more gory science as the children made...BLOOD. We discussed the circulatory system and the purpose of blood before using food items to symbolise the four key elements of blood: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma.

AREA & PERIMETER

The children had some practical experience of calculating the area and perimeter of shapes. They even had some little figures to help them 'walk the perimeter.'

THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

More fun in Y6 today as we took our learning about the digestive system to another level.

The children had a particularly gory and messy experience as they took some food through the digestive system, resulting in some erm... interesting outputs. Let's hope they washed their hands!

SAFETY TOWN

 

We enjoyed our trip to Longridge High School to take part in the Safety Town event.  Many different local speakers and providers came to deliver vital messages to the children about: road safety, cycling awareness, positive thinking, drug and alcohol awareness, e-safety, fire safety, police awareness and first aid awareness.  The children received some vital messages and had a great morning at the same time.

A couple of boys have put some of their spare time to good use.  These could be the mechanics and engineers of the next generation.

COMPUTING

 

Today Y6 were Humanbots!  As an introduction to coding, we used our early knowledge of sequencing and algorithms to control our classmates as if they were robots.  These skills will set us up nicely for the coding topics to come.

MATHS

We've recently been learning about some tricky topics in maths, such as: factors, multiples, prime numbers, square numbers and cube numbers.

Some children found it tricky to begin with but, through perseverance, resilience and knowledge, they have improved their understanding - look at those smiles!!!

PRIVATE PEACEFUL

As part of our learning in English and history, we have been studying extracts of the Private Peaceful WWI novel by Michael Morpurgo.  We decided to get into character and did some hot seating interviews so that we can show our knowledge of the text.

 

Here are a selection of videos.  A few nerves but we will soon be showing our thespian sides.
