As part of our science work, we carried out an investigation to see what happens to our pulse rate after exercise; we enjoyed creating different activities to get our hearts pumping quicker and the sun came out for us too!
Some of our Y6 girls took part in a rugby fun day this week and had a great time!
We Did It!
Yesterday we finished our SATs! We have all worked SO hard and tried our very best- we can't wait for our end of SATs party today!
SATs Information for Parents
The following video explains all of the tests your child will be sitting in May.
Headingley Cricket Ground
We had a really interesting day visiting Headingley Cricket Ground last week! In the morning, we played some cricket; carried out a cricket activity booklet; and took part in an interactive quiz! During the afternoon, we had a tour of the ground where we visited the media centre, with its fantastic views of the cricket pitch, and the VIP room which many celebrities have been in to watch the cricket such as David Cameron, One Direction and Wayne Rooney!
We were also lucky enough to have the Yorkshire Cricket team practising while we were there; some of us had our picture taken with some members of the team and had the opportunity to carry out a short question and answer session with Joshua Shaw!
World Book Day
On Thursday 2nd March, we dressed up for World Book Day. Here are some of our fantastic outfits! This week, we have celebrated World Book Day with Sign Up For a Story, Book Buddies and other book-based activities in class.
On Tuesday 28th February, we enjoyed sharing our books with children from Years 2 and 4. We were very impressed with their fantastic reading!
On Monday 13th February, children in Key Stage 2 baked and brought in some delicious Valentine's-themed baking to sell in school. Here are some pictures of our Year 6 children's treats.
Book Fair Treats!
Thanks to all the money that is spent at our school Book Fairs, we have been able to get some free books for our classroom! We are really looking forward to reading them! Thank you!
Young Voices 2017
We all had a fantastic time at Young Voices 2017! Our concert was at Sheffield Arena, where we rehearsed in the afternoon and then performed for our parents in the evening along with over 5,000 other children! We were also entertained during the day/evening by some amazing acts: Urban Strides Street Dance group, singer-songwriter Natalie Williams, singer/guitar player Tabby Callaghan and the incredibly talented Beatbox Collective!
Our parents had a great time too!
The Beatbox Collective- this is a small preview of the Beatbox group we were lucky enough to have perform for us; all sounds are being made only with their voices!
We all had lots of fun at our Christmas party! We played lots of games: mummy wrapping, the chocolate game, upside down drawing, musical bumps and musical statues! We also had a go at the Mannequin Challenge! To finish off a great afternoon, we then had a visit from Santa who brought us all a gift to open at Christmas!
This week we have all been baking gingerbread men! We had to weigh out our ingredients, mix them together to create a dough and then shape our dough carefully. Once they were cooked, we decorated them and took them home to enjoy!
We had a great time taking part in our Christmas concerts where we performed 2 songs: I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday and Fairytale of New York!
We really enjoyed an afternoon of sewing to create our 2017 calendars!
Christmas Light Switch On
We all had fun listening and singing to carols at our Christmas light switch on with a special guest appearance from the Mayor and Santa Clause!
This week, we were invited to spend an afternoon at Darton College to experience an MFL lesson at secondary school! We learnt how to express our opinions in French and then had to put these into action when tasting some different French foods! The pain au chocolat was a favourite whereas the brie was the least popular. We also had a tour of the school which was really interesting!
On Friday 18th November, Year 6 visited Crucial Crew at the Lifewise Centre in Rotherham. The scenarios in the programme covered issues such as arson, hoax calls, road safety, internet safety and antisocial behaviour. We had a great day out!
We had the opportunity to visit the EIS in Sheffield and carry out a variety of sports and activities! These included Boxing, Athletics, Table Tennis, Basketball and a tour of the building. We were lucky enough to go 'behind the scenes' to see areas which the general public are not able to see, this included the Boxing ring used in the London 2012 Olympics!
We had a fantastic time!
