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 6 Science 19.1.2018

Today, Year 6 have been investigating circuits and the symbols used to show a circuit.They created simple circuits and also included a motor. They worked in groups brilliantly and everyone was able to light up their bulb and spin the motor.

Can you remember why we use symbols in our circuit diagrams?

What did you learn about circuits?

Year 4 Invertebrate Hunt

Our Science topic being Living things and their habitats, we learnt to group vertebrates and invertebrates using classification keys, Venn and Caroll diagrams. We then went on an invertebrate hunt behind the church before examining our findings in the classroom and drawing these tiny creatures in detail. Here are some photos of our very successful hunt.

Well done, Year 4!

Our special visitor.

This morning in year 3 we had a new member in our class.

Our Elf came with a letter explaining why it had come and asking us to name it. We had to do some writing to persuade Miss Briggs why she should choose our name.

We all did fantastic writing but Alicias name won, it was Lucky and we decided the Elf would be a girl.

Lucky came with our advent calendar and she is watching for people being kind!

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.

Year 6 Whitby Trip 6.10.2017

Last Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of their topic and English work.

We had an amazing day, the sun shone all day, we paddled in the sea, had an ice-cream, looked in the shops and went up and down the 199 steps.

The children were a credit to the school and we had a lovely day spotting the sights in Whitby and the book Room 13.

Here are some photos and a video of our day.

Well done Year 6!
