On our way home, we visited Rutland Water Nature Reserve where we carried out some mini-beast hunting; pond dipping; and bird watching. The perfect end to a brilliant trip!
On Wednesday, we visited the Royal Gunpower Mills where we went back to WWII and had to figure out who was acting as a spy. We then visited the stunning Waltham Abbey.
On our way home, since it was rather hot, we cooled off with a McFlurry!
We were very tired after our very busy, but fantastic, day trip to London! We travelled by train and tube which was a great experience for everyone. At the Natural History Museum, we carried out an investigative workshop and enjoyed looking at the different exhibitions the museum has to offer- we could have spent hours there!
Next we visited the Houses of Parliament where we were taken into many interesting famous places. We also watched the debates being held in the House of Commons and the House of Lords before meeting our own MP, Dan Jarvis!
Then we had a walking tour of London's main sights (Mr Gilmore style!) including Buckingham Palace, 10 Downing Street, Horse Guard's Parade and the Cenotaph.
16,000 steps later, we were all tired and ready for bed!
The start of our residential visit at Warwick Castle spent watching the 'Mighty Trebuchet'; learning about crime and punishment; watching the Flight of the Eagles show; climbing the castle walls; and finding our way through the maze!
Y6 are up and ready for the day! They are enjoying their breakfast before they set off.
Making our way into London
Enjoying our day...
Row, row row
We apologise that there are no videos from our first day... we have been too busy enjoying the sun at Warwick Castle! We will make it up with some videos from our day in London tomorrow!
We had an excellent day with the 'Mad Scientists' today!
This week, we have been busy designing and making our very own Anderson Shelters. In our teams, we brought in items from home which would help us to create an effective shelter to keep us safe from bombs during the Blitz. Pictures of our finished products to follow!
END OF SATs PARTY!
After a hard week taking our SATs, we had a great time at our end of SATs party on Friday! We brought in games, had fun with our friends and ate lots of food! Oh, and a party isn't a party without a photo prop!
After we had completed our SATs, we spent the Thursday afternoon with a cricket coach who taught us new skills and played different games with us: a well deserved treat!
Let It Snow!
We enjoyed playing out in the snow at playtime today! A great opportunity for a class photo!
Lots of us had taken part in our Eater themed KS2 Bakeathon this year! We definitely enjoyed tasting them all!
We enjoyed our book buddies afternoon today! We shared books with children from year 3 and reception.
We had a great day today learning all about India! We located it in the Atlas; learnt some interesting facts about the country; took on a job role to earn rupees to see if we could survive; and tasted some Indian foods!
We had a fantastic time at Sheffield Arena taking part in the Young Voices concert! We joined together with over 5,000 children to perform songs, which we have been learning since September, to a huge audience; lots of our parents came to watch!
Happy New Year!
A Holly Jolly Christmas!
Year 6 have really enjoyed all of our Christmas celebrations: Christmas jumper day; Christmas parties; a visit from Santa and his elf; and of course, a Year 6 dance off!
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
A big THANK YOU to all our parents who have donated prizes for the tombola at our Christmas Fair! You have been so generous and it is really appreciated! We hope to see you all there!
Puffin Virtually Live
We really enjoyed watching and taking part in 'The Illustrators Takeover' on Friday! We heard from several famous illustrators who gave us some 'top tips' on how to create their characters and had a go at drawing along!
We all had a great time on our visit to Crucial Crew at the Lifewise Centre in Rotherham! We learnt some very important life lessons: how to keep safe online; how to carry out basic first aid; how to behave on the bus to school; what to do in case of a fire at our home; and many others. We also took part in a mock trial at a magistrates' court which was really interesting!
We even enjoyed our long journey home when stuck in traffic, using it as an opportunity to practise for our Young Voices concert...
Today, we went rambling around the school grounds and into the woods with Year 1. We really enjoyed ourselves and raised money for Children In Need in the process!
Three of our boys have been chosen by Barnsley Schools Football Association to represent Barnsley every Saturday playing football. During our assembly on Monday, Steve Gates (Chairperson of the association) came to present the boys with their ties. Well done boys!
