"To be the best that we can be"

Class 12

Welcome to Class 12!

Trout Release

 

On Thursday 30th March, our year 6 children took  their fishy friends to the river to start their adventure in the River Calder.

 

Despite a few ups and downs, yet again, we had a really good success rate and we estimated that we realeased about 80 fish into the river.

 

Whilst at the river, the children studied different pondilfe and categorised these using keys.  We were also fortunate enough to see rare birds that had flown in from South Africa!

 

Being by the river gave us a perfect opportunity to talk to the children about water safety.  Children were shown how to use different lifesaving equipment in case of an emergency.

 

Behaviour by all children was exemplary as always and days like this would not have been as successful without the help and support of The River Ribble Trust.

Fantastic Book Awards

 

This week, our Year 6 children voted for their favourite book as part of the Fantastic Book Awards competition.  The children read all six books over the last few months and then collaboratively reached a decision as to which book was their favourite.  All books were then ranked and we are pleased to announce that our favourite book was 'Knitbone Pepper Ghost Dog' by Claire Barker.

 

We submitted our vote yesterday and we are now eagerly awaiting the announcement of the overall winner.

 

Well done to all the children that took part!

PE

 

Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed our cricket activities during today's PE lesson. The children learnt how to position their bodies in order to bowl overarm and practised aiming at the wickets - some of us with great success! We look forward to our next session with cricket coach, Paddy.

 

Peter Thorpe

 

After learning about Earth and space in our science lessons, we linked our art work to the theme by studying the work of the artist Peter Thorpe. We used various printing techniques to produce our backgrounds.

"No pens day Wednesday"

 

Teachers were challenged to think creatively about the learning opportunities we offer our children. For the whole day, children and teachers were not allowed to pick up any writing implement. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and made the most of active learning. Here we are taking part in our first P4C lesson; discussing 'Why does respect look different in different sports?" - a question raised by the children. We also enjoyed Maths of the day activities where we worked in teams to find answers to various clues.

Happy New Year to you all

 

Yesterday, we gained a few new additions to our class, well to be exact 100 new members of our class.

Neil and Emily from the River Ribble Trust came into school with our trout eggs.  These will be at the back of our classroom  and, hopefully, after a successful hatching process, we will be releasing them into the river in a few months time.

Year 6 have been learning about the human body and the circulatory system.  This week, we have learned all about the heart and here we are dissecting one.  It was great fun and the children had lots of interesting questions.

Tag Rugby
For five weeks, our year 6 children have been allocated a Tag Rugby professional coach funded through our Sports Partnership agreement. Professional coaches are used throughout school to share their knowledge with children and teachers and to create school and club links. The children in year 6 have a good understanding of the game and are looking forward to working with coach Phil, who will take our game to the next level.

Red, White and Blue day
The whole school celebrated Red, White and Blue day on Friday 14th October. After watching film clips about the Christmas Truce and completing some writing, we turned our attention to developing our origami skills. We watched a clip about the Battle of Jutland before presenting the children with a set of instructions on how to make a boat using nothing but an A4 piece of paper. This tested our problem solving and resilience skills but good fun was had by all....well, most! Well done to Katie and Summer, who were the first to complete the task, successfully floating their boat.

Harvest assembly
Class 12 volunteered to lead our Harvest celebrations with the first class assembly of the year. Taking on a 'Ready Steady Cook' theme, the children delivered a message about the importance of sharing and caring at Harvest time. The donations made were presented to the local Food Bank charity, which provide a valuable service for many local families. They also support our breakfast club. Thank you to all of the parents who came to watch our assembly and to those who offered donations.

The children have enjoyed spending time in their new class for the first week of term. After setting our class rules and routines, the children have taken on their roles and responsibilities in a mature manner, and are ready for the year ahead. Below are some photographs of our first week.
