Year 4 have been working really hard this week learning to change between seconds, minutes and hours. This morning they worked together in their teams to compare different times by converting them into different units of measurement.
Year 6 were treated to a workshop all about transition from primary to secondary school. It was very much an interactive session dealing with everything they may face as they move to their respective secondary schools. Lots of drama and practical group work helped them to understand the changes ahead.
Year 6 are really into their Apprentice Project now and are at the stage of thinking about their advert. We have Barry Stone, a project mentor, from Manchester Airport coming in tomorrow to help the children design their posters.
Year 2 have been learning about how humans change as they grow in their science lessons. A member of Year 2 has a baby brother who came to visit us. We had the chance to ask his Mum some questions about how babies grow and develop. What a lovely afternoon!
Year one had a great time out in the forest this week. They found a pack of tree dogs!!! The children took the tree dogs for a walk and made them dinner. Our children also looked for spiders, found our newly planted tree, climbed trees, made a boat and sailed to a desert island.
Year two had a great forest school session today. They played hide and seek, built dens and worked together. A lot of laughter was heard and a lot of fun had. The children also showed such great respect for the fire that they were trusted to help put it out during their reflection time.
Today, Year 5 looked at the fruits of the Holy Spirit and picked which one they would most like to have. They had to give a reason why, and how they would then use it to benefit others.
Thanks for the memories, Mr Barker.
