Year 6 Premier Sports Taster Session

Today the children took part in a taster session run by Premier Sports. They really enjoyed playing and learning new skills. They tried out archery and a target game.

They counted their points and used their maths skills too.

Year 6 Compliments

Whilst on the trip the children received complimentary feedback from staff at the museum, regarding their polite manner and interest in the exhibition.

Today, a local resident came into school to explain how impressed she was with the behaviour of the children on the bus home from the museum. She said that even though they had clearly had a fantastic day on the trip, they were pleasantly chatting away and even giving up their seats to people who needed them.

Well done to all the children involved.

Year 6 Imax and Science and Media Museum

Yesterday, Year 6 went on a trip to the Science and Media Museum in Bradford. We took part in 2 workshops, watched a science film on the Imax and looked around the exhibitions. We learnt lots of new facts about photography and cameras. We also had the chance to experiment with lights and cameras as well as taking part in science experiments. 

In the Imax cinema we watched a film called ‘Mysteries of the unseen world‘. It showed how cameras can capture things that are too small, too fast or too slow for the eye to see. It was fantastic. Here is a clip.

Here are the rest of our photos.

Well done to all the children who represented St.Paul’s brilliantly and received a compliment from someone at the museum for their excellent behaviour.

** Tell me a new fact you learnt below please **

Year 3’s trip to the Mandir

On the 23rd November Year 3 went on a trip to the Hindu Temple also known as the Mandir.

We were invited in to the temple and shown to the worship room where we got to see all the Hindu Gods and learn lots of interesting things.

We learnt all the Hindu Gods names – well 10 of them, about Hindu weddings and also about what the Hindus might have in a shrine at home.

We had a fantastic time and felt so welcomed, the Hindu priest also gave us a gift as we left.

Year 6 Function Machines

In problem solving lessons, Year 6 have been learning about function machines and pretending to be human machines. The children were given a number then they had to use the function to change the number and give an output. In groups the children then created a machine for the other children,they had to guess the function using trial and error and patterns.

Can you solve this function machine by giving another example?

(Don’t post the answer)

12………………………………………………..140

10………………………………………………..120

36………………………………………………..380

145………………………………………………..1470

Year 6 Remembrance Day

Last week, Year 6 took some time to remember the wars, the soldiers – past and present, their families and their own lives.

They made some poppy crosses and some beautiful artwork which contained their own poems. Here are some examples of their exceptional work (click to enlarge).

The week was finished with the whole school 2 minute silence.
