What an incredible performance we’ve just seen from our Year 6 children! The children have worked so hard, learning some very complex dance routines (and even creating their own!) while performing a range of songs that kept the audience entertained throughout. We’ve got some real stars of the future in this class! Well done, Year 6; you were amazing!
Another group of us went to the stables. We met the horses, brushed them and then had turns to ride them. We were all trying a new challenge to help us to think about how we deal with challenges and new experiences.
A group of children from year 6 went to Shylowen stables for a pony care and horse riding session.
We went to get a new experience and face a challenge to help us to get ready and feel confident about moving on to new things in secondary school.
We brushed the horses and learned some thing about them and then we had chance to ride two horses.
Today in year 6,we had a debate on our book called Ice Trap Shackletons incredible expedition.Our debate was if Shackleton would leave the island or stay. There were some really strong reasons to stay, but it was chosen he would leave the island. Can anyone explain why we decided this was the best option?
We have been studying health and fitness in science recently and have looked at the circulatory system in great detail. Here is an example of a Keynote presentation we created to summarise our knowledge.
Thursday saw Year 6 going on the short journey down to Liverpool Marina. We took 8 person boats and rowed all the way to the Albert Dock and back (and Mr Lowry got just a little wet!). We then had great fun on the inflatable obstacle course on the water. A fantastic day!
Year 6 started their activity week off with a trip to Chill Factore in Manchester on Tuesday. They had a fabulous time putting on the boots and skis and trying out a new sport.
Today, during Eco Club, Mrs Lewis received the call from Eco Schools to say we had achieved our FIFTH GREEN FLAG! Everyone – staff, children and families – has worked so hard towards this and we have a lot to be proud of. We also have lots of exciting future plans! For now, look how delighted Eco Club are!
This morning, Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to the Philharmonic Hall for a special “Concert for Schools”. In the concert, presenter Alasdair Malloy and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra taught us about revolutionary composers including Beethoven, Bach, The Beatles, John Adams, Stravinsky and John Cage. The amazing musicians also performed music from John Williams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was an exciting, educational, music-filled experience linked to the National Curriculum. We even had a chance to sing a specially written song as a massed choir accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra!
