The children worked really hard on their Design Technology projects this week. The children spent time investigating cams and then designed and made their own moving fairground ride. The carousal rides looked fantastic! Have a look at the slideshow below to see what the children produced.
It was wonderful to welcome so many parents into school for our Learning Celebration today. The children really enjoyed sharing their learning and teaching the parents a series of mini-grammar lessons! Well done to all of Year 6 who read their work aloud, who took on the role of teacher and everyone who helped the parents complete their tasks.
Year 6 had a fantastic time on their school visit to The Black Country Museum. The children enjoyed learning more about the Industrial Revolution and finding out about what life was like working in a coal mine. Being able to experience a Victorian town and the Victorian way of life consolidated the children's undertanding of life during the Victorian times. To end our day at the museum, the children got to experience a Victorian school lesson - a very different style of teaching to that which the children experience today!
What a fantastic time Year 6 have had on their residential - even the torrential rain couldn't dampen the children's enthusiasm! The children have been busy trying out new activities such as body zorbing, climbing, buggy building and they even had a water fight! I am so proud of how the children behaved throughout the residential - they demonstrated all of the school values and enjoyed every second of their long overdue residential! Well done Year 6!
Year 6 have had a fantastic first day at Grittleton House! We have been busy with our activities - group 1 taking part in archery and group 2 trying out hoverboarding. We even managed to dodge the showers - almost! The children have been fantastic and have been challenging themselves and suppporting each other during the activities. Please have a look at the photos below!
It has been a busy few weeks back at school! Year 6 have been busy with their new topic the Victorians and finding out all about key events which took place during this era. We have enjoyed being able to return to masterclass afternoons, with the children taking part in food technology and forest school sessions. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we have been up to!
It has been wonderful to welcome the children back into school over the last week. We have been busy learning about our new theme the Victorians, and we have spent time discussing Rights, Rules and Responsibilites in our PSHE lessons. We are all very much looking forward to an exciting and busy term ahead! We have lots to look forward to - a residential, a school trip and also welcoming parents in for our termly learning celebration!
Please have a look in the termly plans tab for more information about the learrning which will take place over the coming term.
