Here is our learner profile for what a Year 6 child will be able to do by the end of the year.
Year 6 news...
Today we were joined by Stella who was a very relaxed Lurcher crossbreed. Yr 3 did so much reading that some of them read a whole book again!
Year 6 did some reading and also asked some good science questions including, do dogs get dandruff?! The answer is yes they do, their skin can get dry like ours, which is what causes dandruff.
We found out that Stella was found on her own in a field and was most likely abandoned by her family. She would really like to have a new family to live with. Some of us would have loved to have kept her! She was so friendly and calm and just loved being stroked, we hope she finds a home soon.One Comment
On Monday in class, we used iMovie to create an advert for the Infinity Park in Cosmic, a great book by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We have used our art books to design our own Possibility Building and a map for Infinity Park. This work gave us great inspiration to make the adverts. An example of our fine work is below, we hope you enjoy!0 Comments
It’s great to see children across KS2 learning science together! This group is designed to give some of our pupils extra practice honing their scientific skills and developing their knowledge.0 Comments
The third stage of Willis’s training today was for us to learn how to lead and turn him using all of us with one rope each. This meant that we had to communicate well with each other so we could give Willis clear instructions. One time we were doing different things so Willis didn’t know which way to go or what to do because our instructions were telling him different things. It worked best when we worked together as a team and Willis understood our instructions.
Continuing with Willis’s training we learned how to lead him using 4 people and 4 ropes. This involved two people leading from the front with a rope each on each side, and two people at the back steering with a long rope each on each side. This meant that we all had to talk and listen to each other.0 Comments
Today we continued with Willis’s training. We took him outside today to practice some different things.
First we practised how to lead and turn Willis using 2 people and 2 ropes.
This week we started by revising what we had learnt last week on how to lead a horse using the short lead rope and the long ropes. Thunder knows how to do this already so we practiced again with her, then we had to learn how to teach Willis to do it, because, like us, Willis is still learning how to do this.
First we had to lead Willis to walk around the stable. Then we lead him towards us and got him to stop. Then lead Willis to turn around to face a different direction. This meant that one of us had to take the long rope behind him and pull so he followed the direction of the rope, and the other person had to follow the lead person and keep leading Willis until he reached the place where the the lead person had stopped.
These 2 photos show steps in the sequence and the video shows how we did the complete action.
We are delighted to have been able to collect and create 51 shoeboxes at St Patrick’s this year. Thank you everyone! Today the Year 6 Faith in Action group enjoyed a visit to the Operation Christmas Child sorting centre to see how the boxes are checked, sorted and packed before shipping by some wonderful volunteers.0 Comments
The results so far are very close with 4 classes all having 6 pieces each, and the other classes not far behind. This could be a close run race! Make sure you are all in school everyday for your class to be in with a chance to win!
This week we met Tom. He is a black and white Lurcher and he is 5 years old. He has been in the dogs home for about a year. He was really friendly and he seemed very relaxed listening to us read.0 Comments
