Pendle Hill

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jun-5-2018

Well done to our Walking Club for making it to the top of Pendle Hill.

It was a steep climb and a few stops were needed along the way, however the weather was lovely and we got all the way to the top!

Making Blood

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jun-5-2018

As part of our science topic we followed instructions to make ‘mock’ blood.

It was very sticky/messy work however the end results showed the layers of the blood:

  • Red blood cells
  • White blood cells
  • Platelets
  • Plasma

Dissecting a Heart

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-23-2018

Today we began our new topic “Blood Heart”.

Our first lesson was to really understand what a heart is and what it does.  What better way to do this than to dissect one.

Working in pairs (only the brave ones – it was too much for a few of us) we examined and cut up a lambs heart in small stages.

What did you think of the lesson?

World War 2 Rations

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-10-2018

To end our World War 2 topic we held a VE Day party in school.

To help us make it a success:

  • in PE we learned how to dance lindy hop
  • we dressed in our WW2 outfits
  • we cooked using our rations

Look at how great Year 6 looked and how tasty the ration food looked (only the Marmite cheese rolls were left over).

 

Stations of the Cross

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-10-2018

Thank you to Year 6 for presenting the Stations of the Cross to the rest of the school.

The reflections were thoughtful and really helped everyone to feel the importance of Jesus’ journey close to Easter.

We were all very proud of you!

Garstang

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-10-2018

February’s walking club to Garstang was a very muddy one indeed!

The weather was dry for us and were all wrapped up ready for the cold.

Most of the beginning of the walk followed paths however soon we were into the fields and into a lot of mud.

This was funny a lot of the time, especially as some of us got stuck and others lost boots in the mud.  It did make it very tricky to walk on which meant that the walk felt harder to do and much longer than it was.

None of this stopped Year 6 having fun and we got back to Garstang with plenty of time to buy sweets and ice creams at the shop!

Games Day

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-10-2018

During Lent each class were challenged to do an activity that raises money for charity.

Year 6 ran our annual ‘Games Day’.

This year we had more crazy and fun games for the rest of the school (and teachers) to take part in.

Well done to everyone for your planning and ideas…we raised £187!

Changing Horizons

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-10-2018

We were lucky enough for the whole of the class to take part in the Changing Horizons event at Blackpool Winter Gardens.

The event was designed to inspire children and share all of the many careers that we can choose in our own town.

There were so many different stalls to visit and take part in different activities based on the careers.  We also got quite  a few freebies too!
