Best Song Ever - by Joe & Mary-Kate
Well done to all of Year 6 who took part in a sponsored spell this morning to raise funds for this year's Robinwood trip. They have potentially raised over £450. What an amazing effort.
MMU aspirations workshop - Do you want to go to University?
David Walliams book covers
World Book Day Animations
Year 6 took part in Safer Internet Day and learnt about the safest way to share posts and images on social media. We created decision trees to help people decide whether or not to share thier information
Elizabethan Day at Tatton Park
We visited the house of Richard Brereton, who was an important member of the Tudor court. We made felt for clothing, ground wheat for bread, learned about Tudor armour and weapons and took part in a Tudor court session. We also found out what it was like to be in a time when there was no heating!
Miss Bentley's laptop was stolen and we had to use forensic science to find out who the culprit was!
Parents Christmas Workshop
We took part in an NSPCC workshop where we learned ways of keeping ourselves safe and what to do if we have any problems.
As part of Safety Week we had a road safety workshop, reminding us how to be safe when crossing the road, riding our bikes and when in the car
We went to Safe Squad and attended workshops on personal safety, online safety, bullying, fire safety, first aid and community safety.
WWI Workshop at Portland Basin
We met Tommy Atkins, a local WWI soldier who explained to us what life was like for soldiers in the trenches. He let us borrow some of his equipment and taught us how to shoot, use a bayonet, protect ourselves against gas and survive stealth missions into no man's land.
WWII workshop at Portland Basin
We met Betty, a WWII housewife who was helping us, as evacuees, to find our billeted families. As we had forgotten our gas masks, ration books and identity papers, it was going to be difficult! Whilst we waited, we found out all about air raids, the clothes that we'd need to wear and the food that we could eat. We learned how to sing 'Run Rabbit, Run' and we were all given a WWII name by Betty. As a treat, we were allowed to have sugar sandwiches, which were very tasty!
