Here are Class Jacob enjoying a hockey lesson in the playground.
On the 18th September our Year 6 children went to Congleton High School to take part in a Cultural Diversity Day where they had the opportunity to take part in many different workshops. Here are some photos kindly taken by Mrs Armitt who accompanied them on the day.
In Science today we looked at how the heart works and worked in teams against the clock to label the various parts of the heart. Here is a great link (which will be included in your children’s homework tomorrow) that shows just how the blood flows around the body and in reoxygenated by the lungs.
In our Numeracy lessons this week we are learning about the properties of complex 3D shapes. Today Class Jacob worked in different groups to list properties of pyramids, prisms and to construct different polyhedra from nets. One group measured and designed the nets themselves according to their knowledge of faces, vertices and edges.
Today we were lucky enough to have Cozmic Ceri lead our school assembly. Here are some photos of her mad science in action.
Today we began reading Romeo & Juliet and learnt some words that would have been used in Shakespeare’s time. Here are some that the children should be able to define.
Doth, thou, wast, writ, beseech, alack and sirrah.
There is an interesting PDF in the link below that describes how Shakespeare effectively used language in his plays and prose.
