As part of our DT work, Year 6 have spent the day cooking their own version of a healthy lasagne. The children used lots of different skills in the preparation and cooking of their meal which is what they voted to be the ideal healthy school lunch. As well as lasagne, they made chunky salsa, and blueberry and mango smoothie. Children from other classes, who had filled in questionnaires about school dinners, also had the chance to taste the food and everyone thought it was delicious!
City of Trees
Year 6 were invited to go to Fir Tree Fisheries in Appley Bridge to plant trees for the City of Trees. City of Trees is an innovative and exciting movement set to re-invigorate Greater Manchester's landscape by transforming underused, unloved woodland and planting a tree for every man, woman and child who lives there, within a generation. We had a great time planting over a hundred sapplings and the children hope to see their trees growing sometime in the future.
RE Day - A Service of Worship - Christian Worship Around the World
This week, we spent a whole day learning all about the how Christians around the world worship in their churches. We found out lots of new things but focused mostly on four parts of the service: the call to worship, the welcome, the peace and the prayers. During the day, we had fun playing the drums, finding out lots of words for welcome or hello in other languages, listening to African prayers and thinking about how we best like to pray, making prayer stones to help us focus during silent prayer, and finding out how people offer each other the sign of peace around the world. Why don't you have a look at our photos?
Creating Our Own Creatures
During our Science work on adaptation, inheritance and evolution, we created our own creatures using natural materials which we found in the school grounds. We gave our animals names and wrote magazine articles about our newly discovered creatures, their adaptations and their habitats.
As always, our trip to Tower was a great success with both children and staff alike. We were busy every minute of our trip with lots of exciting outdoor pursuits and new things to discover. Everyone had a go at the activities - even those who may have felt a little anxious to start with, and the children felt very proud of themselves at the end of their adventures. Here are some photos of the fantastic things we got up to.
