I don’t want you all to cry but you may want to watch this science video again!
In case you need some help with your homework!
Here is the super-cute film that Charlotte chose for her class worship!
This month’s walking club was to Rivington Pike.
Look what we’ve been growing in science!
The task was to find the best place to grow mould as we continue to learn about microorganisms!
More maths fun here as we find the perimeter! Watch it, it will help with those compound shapes!
More learning fun with Maths Mansion!
Check out the area of rectangles video!
REMEMBER: We’re using the word ‘width’ instead of ‘breadth’.
As part of our science topic we are looking at how useful microbes are…what a great excuse to bake some bread!
Armed only with a recipe, Year 6 had to follow the instructions and bake their own bread. Mrs Whitmore baked some without yeast so that we could taste and see the difference.
What was yours like? Did you like the non-yeast one?
Did you like baking? Would you like to bake again?
Another film about poo (just for Reshma!), this time it’s Victorian poo!
Today Year 6 visited the Judges Lodgings at Lancaster.
The day began with a great start as Year 6 got stuck into the theme by dressing up in Victorian outfits. We then zipped up to Lancaster in the mini buses.
Once at Lancaster we split into groups and accessed four different workshops:
1) Victorian School Room: We sat at Victorian desks and completed some tasks that a child might have completed in school at the time.
2) Kitchen: As trainee kitchen staff, we learned to polish, clean and set the tables for the rich house owners!
3) Toys: We got to play with a range of toys that Victorian children would have played with
4) Victorian Cottage: After seeing how grand the Judge’s house was, we got to see the opposite end of the scale in a very small and basic cottage. We learned how to make rugs, light fires, wash clothes and lots more (including using wee to get rid of stains and head lice!)
Thanks to the staff at Lancaster who made it a great day and to Year 6 for once again making representing Holy Family in a way to make us all proud!
Today we watched our first episode of Maths Mansion! We met the Negs as we learned about negative numbers.
Some of you were out playing football. What do you think?
This weekend Year 6 spent Friday night camping on the school field!
We began the evening with a little free time as the class unpacked their bags in their homes for the night. This was followed by a burger and chips tea.
The aim of the evening was to work as a team, so after tea the class were mixed into four teams; ‘The Jolly Fairies’, ‘Peace’, ‘The Evil Ponies’ and ‘The Happy Campers’. In groups the first task was to organise themselves into different order whilst standing on benches (some groups proved much better than others!)
Next was a game on the bottom field that involved water, hockey sticks and lots of dizzy people! As the sun went down we had a break and ate chocolate brownies and ice-cream whilst watching the fireworks.
Our next game was a chair game where the teams had to squeeze onto four chairs as they made their way across the school hall. Then we played hide and seek around the whole school in the dark!
The night drew to a close after playing a very annoying game with glow sticks. We then sat and toasted marshmallows around a camp fire before going to bed.
In the morning we had bacon butties and toast and then went home at 10am.
Thanks to all of the teachers who helped out and to Year 6 for getting stuck into all of the games!
What did you think? Would you camp again? What was your tent like?
