Year Six

Science in Year 6

In Science, we created a circuit to power a light bulb. We used two crocodile clips, battery pack and a light bulb. This is called a simple circuit. We were set a challenge to make a light that fully switched off, using a switch, and to create a dimming light. Then we drew all the symbols and our circuit. Emily pointed out what the symbol was for a double battery.

Maths Conversion

Today we converted different measurements and used the equality signs. This is our first blog as digital leaders and we aim to blog every week so please keep checking this page.

The final farewell

This morning we visited the fair for the final time. The rooms are packed and we have had a wonderful time. At 12pm we will have a final picnic on the grass before we head back this afternoon. The children have been an absolute delight and we have loved taking them away. See you back at school...

Thursday night fever...

Disco ready. Don't we look mighty fine.  Apologies to the 4 children who were still getting ready and missed the photo!

Any future circus performers?

Lots of new skills learnt today. Some impressive juggling, balancing and dancing!

Dancing

During our dance workshop we learnt the moves to Gangnam Style; it was lots of fun.
You never know a live performance may be heading your way soon!

Day Four - busy, busy, busy!

Another beautiful day here. We started the day with lots of sport, followed by a trip to the fun fair. Mr Herring braved the Waltzers! After lunch we took part in circus skills and a drum workshop. We are off to swim later in the amazing pool. See you all tomorrow.

Some pictures of our time at the beach

 

To make the most of the glorious weather we took to the beach to play a variety of games. A lot of fun was had by all

Marvellous Magic

Lots of fun was had today at the magic show. We made pom poms appear  through cups and pennies travel through lids into bottles

Fabulous fun in the pool

Tonight we had lots of fun jumping, sliding and swimming around the pool. We were in for 1 and a half hours and it felt like 10 minutes. If the technology allows us then hopefully there will be some videos to come... Here are some photos for now.

Day 3!

Day 3 and it has stopped raining! We have had a yummy breakfast and this morning we have played cricket and done some fencing! Take a look at our latest photos...

Residential - Day Two

We have had another fantastic day on residential. Today all of the children participated in archery, high ropes, science fun, rocket building and a silent cinema!

Day Two so far....

Day two on the Year 6 Residential and it's a glorious day...well actually it's raining but that is not stopping us from having lots of fun. Everyone slept well and was up and raring to go for breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, hash browns, toast - deelish! Everyone ate well and we then headed off for archery and aerial adventures.  Some of us faced our fears and did the 'Leap of Faith' which was very high up. We also tried the climbing wall and assault course. Archery was very competitive and the team names were very interesting- the children will let you know when they get back! After a yummy lunch of hot dogs or fish fingers and chips plus a pudding we are now undercover building rockets and trying some very tricky science challenges. Have a look at some photos of the day so far and check back later for an update. Stop press- room inspections later!

Residential - Day One

Year Six have had a great first day on residential. They have been to the fun fair, watched a welcome show and competed in a treasure hunt. They are all tucked up in bed and ready for another exciting day tomorrow!

We are here!!!!

After a lovely journey this morning we have arrived safely at Minehead. We've had a picnic lunch and some field games. Mr Moore was ace on the football field and Mrs Bird and Mrs Storer played tennis like they were in the final at Wimbledon! Everyone is fine and happy. We've had a great time at the fairground and now we are off to our rooms to unpack and settle in. Check in later for an update!

Audience wowed by SUPER Stan

KS2 has wowed different aged audiences with a brilliant production. Lily from 6JS drew the front cover of the programme for everyone to look at. Gina Walledge said " The production was brilliant and think it is definitely something to be proud of. " The play definitely had a great response from the audience as they laughed at every joke. Thank you to Mrs Burnham for all the amazing props and to the Year 6 children for their enthusiasm and hard work.
