Year 6 were visited by Claire from St John’s Ambulance and learnt about emergency first aid. They learnt about DRSABC and how to put an unconscious, breathing casualty into the recovery position. What a useful skill to learn!
This half term Year 6 have been learning about basketball with Coach Lloyd from St Paul’s School. The children have really enjoyed developing their basketball skills and have worked well in teams.
October – Month of the Rosary
As it is now the month of the Rosary, the children learnt about the Luminous Mysteries. They worked in a group to produce a poster about one of the Mysteries; encouraging reflections and prayers.
The children had some great fun making some terrific trifles this morning. Linking to our topic work on Shakespearean England, the children made their own Elizabethan-inspired trifle. They used lots of delicious ingredients and most children enjoyed their creations!
European Day of Languages
On European Day of Languages Year 6 worked in groups to research different countries using the laptops. They then created posters to teach the rest of the class about their country. They were also lucky enough to see paella being made and even got to taste some!
To begin their DT project of making an alarm, the children have been exploring switches. The children made a simple circuit before swapping in pre-made switches and then had a go at making their own switches from basic equipment.
