Dissecting a Heart
April 23, 2018, 6:48 pm
Filed under: Year 6 Memories

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

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).

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!

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!

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

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!

Buddhist Temple

Our World Faith in Year 6 is Buddhism.

As a part of our studies we went to visit Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre Conishead in Ulverston.

The drive was a good one and we had beautiful weather for the day.

When we arrived we were amazed at how spectacular the temple looked as you entered the drive.

Once we arrived we learned about Buddhism, looked at the different Buddhist symbols and why they are chosen and then got to visit the temple.  Inside a monk taught us about Buddah and showed us how to meditate.  We also got time to look around at more statues and symbols.

After lunch we did some sketches of different symbols and then took a walk to the bay.  Here we threw stones in the river, sang Happy Birthday to Boo (and ate cakes)…thanks Boo; and played hide and seek in the woods.

What a great day!

Year 6 were awesome in their book day costumes!

We spent our afternoons learning how to read with expression and accents so that we could entertain the infants.

Thanks Year 1 and Reception for letting us come and read to you!
