Our Year 6 children attended church on Friday 7th July and participated in their end of year leaver's mass. Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the children in church. It was a lovely mass and the children sang beautifully. We hope you enjoy the video of the children singing. (13.7.17).
We have been delighted with the homework that Year 6 have done in conjunction with their History topic of WW2. We have had some wonderful models and posters. Here is a selection of pictures showing some examples of the children's work. (7.7.17)
On Monday 5th June we were very pleased to welcome Elliot Robertson's granddad to Year 6. He came to talk to us about his experiences of being evacuated to Bollington, Cheshire, during WW2. We would like to thank Mr Parker for sparing the time to come and give his interesting talk and answer the children's questions. (7.7.17).
On Wednesday 21st June our Year 6 evacuees travelled to Stockport and spent the day learning about what it would have been like to be evacuated in 1939. They had a tour of Stockport's unique tunnel air-raid shelters and also had gas mask drill and practised some chores which would make them useful to their host families. (22.6.17)
On Tuesday 6th and 13th June, Miss Atherton, a drama teacher from Haslingden High School, came in to help Y6 explore their History topic of WW2 through drama. The children thoroughly enjoyed this session and were very good at creating freeze frames and short plays based on this topic. (22.6.17)
On Friday 12th May, Mrs Thetford came in to Year 6 and demonstrated how to make slime. The children learned about how scientists work in a laboratory, how atoms and molecules move and behave in solids, liquids and gases and finally how to make the slime from two liquids. Thank you to Mrs Thetford for giving up her time to give Y6 this practical Science lesson. (22.6.17)
On Monday 10th April the Year 6 children performed their Easter play "Hope in the Shadows" first for the school and then in the evening for parents. The children had worked very hard and we were very proud of their singing, narration and the respectful way they were able to portray the events of Holy Week. Well done everybody! We hope you enjoy the video below. (5.5.17)
As part of our Science topic about Digestion, we had a visit form Dr Babbs, a retired gastroenterologist. He told the children about the amazing journey of the food we eat as its travels through our digestive system. We would like to thank Dr Babbs for his fascinating talk. (9.3.17)
Over the last half term Y6 have been learning about Britain's National Parks. There are 15 National Parks - Britain's breathing spaces - and the children focused on 10 of them. They worked in groups to research the Park and created posters, Powerpoint presentations and prepared a talk to the rest of the class about their chosen National Park. (9.3.17)
On Tuesday 28th February the children in Year 6 attended the Halle for Youth concert in the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. This concert aims to introduce children to the instruments of a symphony orchestra and give them the experience of listening to live music in a top class concert hall. The theme of the concert was "Made in the British Isles" and we listened to music from England, Scotland Wales and Ireland. (9.3.17)
On Friday 17th February Year 6 had a visit from Walan the Viking. He brought many Viking artefacts for us to look at and he told us about how and why the Vikings first invaded England, what daily life was like for Viking people and about some of their customs and beliefs. This was an interesting way to start off our History topic for this term. (9.3.17)
Our Year 6 children had a wonderful time in Robinwood. They experienced raft building, caving, rocket olympics, archery, team challenges, challenge courses, giant swing, crate challenge, night line, canoeing, trapeze, climbing, quest and a zip wire!! WOW. They packed a lot into their trip away. We hope you enjoy the slide show below. (11.10.16)
