Year Six have had a busy week - first they acted as internet sleuths; researching some fictional classmates whilst examining their digital footprint.
Then they quizzed Father Stephen on his choices and journey to becoming a priest as part of our RE Vocation lessons.
Year 6 PE dance activities based aroud the 'Popcorn' soundtrack
It was lovely to be joined by Father John Paul to start planning our Year 6 mass.
The children all had some creative and clear ideas of how they wanted to celebrate mass in our classroom.
Year 6 finished this half-term with a Bushtucker Challenge!
We ate mealworm, grubs, crickets, bugs, kidney, liver, sheep's eyes and worst of all...prunes!
Today Year 6 experimented with various different tools to replicate the adaptation of birds and their beaks! we tried 'eating' chocolate drops using a toothpick, peg, spoon and lolly stick - to represent a humming bird, duck, pelican and wader.
Oh, and look who finally joined us! Welcome…
What a great morning!
Paul from Horus Birds of Prey visited us with four of his wonderful owls and we learnt a lot about adaptation of a supreme predator!
Year 6 had a great field-trip today; spotting evidence of Sir Richard Owen (inventor of the word 'dinosaur') around the city, visiting Lancaster library for a tour, updating our library cards and researching Mary Anning (Victorian fossil hunter)!
To celebrate National Poetry Day, Year 6 learnt Up 'Ere by Tony Walsh. You can watch our recital HERE.
Thank you to all the parents who came listen to all the poems presented live by the different classes.
Thank you to all the parents and carers that attended our Y6 Class Worship.
Year 6 have been investigation the effects of adaptation and camouflage! Inspired by the Peppered Moth we have experimented with a mutation to make us less obvious to hungry birds!
