Houghton Bottoms

Posted by Mr Waywell on Nov-23-2016

This month Walking Club took 13 pupils to Houghton Bottoms.

After a week of horrible wet play times we were very lucky that it was  pleasant day – we even got to sit down for a picnic!

Along the way we:

  • Walked for a long time (just over 6 miles!)
  • Climbed many styles
  • Scared sheep
  • Got told not to scare any more sheep
  • Watched the boys secretly trying to wee as a bunch of hikers walked right behind them!
  • Walked through mud
  • Fell in mud
  • Got stuck in mud
  • Lost shoes in mud
  • Watched Mr Waywell dig in mud with his hands to rescue the shoes from mud
  • Threw stones in the river
  • Saw a very posh house

All in all it was another successful trip!  Roll on the next one in January, we are hoping to find somewhere that has snow!

Mannequin Gym

Year 6 took part in our first ‘Mannequin Challenge’ today in PE.  Despite a few minor movements, I think it was a pretty good first attempt!  Watch out for some more attempts!

Book Day

Posted by Mr Waywell on Nov-1-2016

Book day was a fabulous success as everyone wore a costume based on a book character – including all of the teachers!

Year 6 were brilliant once more (day 2 of dressing up) and everyone wore a brilliant costume!  Sadly we had no Mrs Whitmore however Mr Waywell was Dumbledore!

Check out the pics…they look awesome!

Spy Day

Posted by Mr Waywell on Nov-1-2016

As we end our ‘Tomorrow’s World’ topic we decided to theme our lessons based on spies for a week and have a ‘Spy’ dress up day.

Year 6 did not disappoint with their costumes and everyone looked brilliant in their spy disguises!  Throughout the week we:

  • Did some code breaking in maths
  • Designed a spy gadget in English
  • In PE we crept around like spies on the apparatus
  • We illustrated our gadgets in art
  • In grammar we solved murders with the past progressive
  • We decoded secret messages with algebra
  • Made good progress reading our Stormbreaker class novel
