Our class reading book Skellig lead us to finding out about tawny owls. On discovering how they produced pellets by regurgitating indigestable food, we couldn't let this opportunity go by without finding out more for ourselves. Each group was able to pick apart one of the pellets and use a chart to identify the remains. To our amazement there were up to 4 skulls and many other identifiable bones in just one pellet. Have a look at the photos in the gallery to see more of what we found. Its surprising what you can buy on the internet these days!
Y6 Visit the Crucial Crew Experience
On Thursday 8th February, both Y6 classes went to the Lifewise Centre near to Rotherham for the Crucial Crew experience. The trip taught us many different skills which will keep us safe. It was hosted by the South Yorkshire police, the Fire Service and St John’s ambulance service. There were many activities such as road safety, travel safety, first aid and role play in the magistrate’s court, in the park and internet safety. The road safety taught us how to cross the road safely and how far it takes for a car to fully stop. In the first aid activity we were taught how to stop a nose-bleed and what to do if someone is choking. We also did a role play in the court where we acted out a scenario to show the consequences of making the wrong choices and letting your friends lead you into trouble.
Please find attached a copy of the home learning schedule for Y6. Opening this copy will allow quick links to some of the online games. Information is also provided about the project.
Our Y6 and Y5 school trip to the Christmas Science Lecture
Today we had an amazing school trip! It was an excellent experience, and everyone enjoyed it! When we arrived at the Octagon Centre, the cameras were filming us, and it was a madhouse in there.
After that, a professor from the university gave us a lecture about plants and fertilisers. He also gave us a plant pot and some seeds for us to grow at home. The professor said it was an early Christmas present. The lecture itself was so interesting, most of us lost track of time.
Included in the lecture was an Alpaca, some indoor lightning and lots of... POO! Eventually, we all got to say hi and stroke the alpaca.
After the lecture, we enjoyed doing hand activities which helped us understand more about the bacteria in soil and nutrients! There were stalls filled with all sorts of fascinating information about plants and how they grow. Before we left we did some origami. We made a bird and a fly. It was really fun.
