World Book Day

On Thursday it was World Book Day  and what an amazing day it was .Firstly we would like to thank you all for the children’s fantastic costumes, they looked amazing and we could see that a lot of hard work had gone into making them .The English team brought the story of Supertato to life  to enhance the children’s  learning. This years  challenge was to prove to Evil Pea that reading is fun and this helped to save all the super vegetables. We made our very own supertato’s, we read books and did lots of other engaging activities. At the end of the day we celebrated with a party because we saved the veggies!!!!

Hooray we did it!!

Our Wow word of the term is Silly.We have learnt the sign for silly, looked up the definition of the word and pulled silly faces.

We hope our pictures make you laugh

pancake Day

Tuesday was pancake day and to celebrate we had a full day of activities. The book we chose to base our learning on was ‘Pancake Pancake’ by Eric Carle

We could chop fruit, make butter, chop the hay, milk the cows, find the eggs and then we all sat together and ate our delicious pancakes with various toppings. Then in the afternoon we went to assembly where two silly chefs made pancakes and we had pancake flipping competitions and pancake tossing, it was soooooo much fun. We had a fantastic fun day!

Here’s a recipe if you would like to make your own pancakes at home..

Children’s Mental Health Week

Wow what a wonderful and fun packed week we have had. We have been doing lots of things to support Children’s Mental Health Week. We started our week by reading the story The Making of Milton which is about a boy who loses his brave but then finds it again with a bit of magic and self belief so we made our own jars of courage, Other activities included sharing a mindful minute in the forest which was really relaxing,  we have  also made special footprints and tasted all new foods which the children and staff found really funny .Aw well as all of  this we still managed to fit in a trip to Peel Tower and sketch pictures of it .We have some really good artists in 6H .We really did find our brave this week!!!. What a super,fun engaging week had by all. We hope the children can teach you all how to find your brave they really are inspirational .Happy Weekend

Police museum Manchester visit


On Tuesday we went to Manchester Police Museum. It was fantastic and full of old uniforms, artefacts, cells and even a courtroom. The volunteers that were there were all ex policeman full of interesting knowledge and they were dressed in uniforms from different eras. We had the opportunity to dress up in police outfits and had our pictures taken. The officer even arrested Karly !!!! Luckily we told him she had been a good girl.
The museum is open every Tuesday if anyone would like to visit its free.

6H class assembly

What a jam packed two weeks we have had! Last week we had our class assembly Its up to us! The children were fantastic, it was really inspiring, thank you to all our parents who attended. All our year 6 started their swimming lessons and showed brilliant water skills.

This week we have been reading Detective Dog and have been using our sense of smell to guess what the different smells were  hidden in the bags. Also  police officer Cooper  came to visit us to talk about being police officer, show us her uniform and explain her kit to us.

To finish off our week we have been enjoying Chinese new year activities and trying new foods today  and even became a dragon for a parade. Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Tesco shopping

Today we walked to Tesco to buy our ingredients for our D.T. project. We worked together reading the shopping list, finding the food, paying and making sure we didn’t spend over our £5 budget. The children were fantastic as the food came to £4.55 . They made us feel very proud. We have also started our  Christmas activities by making our school danglie’s. We think the school is going to look gorgeous come December.

Have a beautiful weekend.

War recipes

What a fabulous week ! Over the past few weeks we have been combining our maths weight lessons with learning about what the food was like in the wartime. We have made sweet and savoury dishes which the children seemed to really enjoy and everyone tried some and they had to work in a team to weigh the ingredients .We have made pancakes, cheese and potato dumplings, spam hash and parkin. Think we have some Jamie Oliver’s in the making .It would be fantastic if you let us know if you make anything at home. Good luck and have a super weekend.
