Y4 Walking for Lent
As part of our aim to walk 200km to raise money for CAFOD in Lent, Year 4 walked 28 of them!
We all walked up to Williamson Park, around the Ashton Memorial and back down to school. It was such a lovely thing to do in the sunshine.
Y3 Art In The Park
Year 3 had a great time in the sunshine, drawing in Williamson Park. We looked at the Raku Sculpture and the stone figures on the Ashton Memorial as we have been studying sculpture in art. We combined our art visit with our Big Lent Walk.
Year 6 Walker Art Gallery
Year 6 really enjoyed their visit to the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool last week. We explored each of the galleries, viewing paintings from the pre-Raphaelites to post-war modernism before selecting our favourite work of art to sketch in our art books as part of a "floor…
Year 6 World Book Day '23
Year 6 really enjoyed celebrating World Book Day this year!
Wonderful costumes and a surprise guest reader with Mrs Lowe popping in to catch up with her old class at the end of the day.
As Light As Air??
Does gas have weight?
To explore this concept in science this week, the children weighed fizzy drinks, stirred out the gas and then weighed it again. There were some convincing results that showed us that gas does not have a large mass, but it does weigh a bit!
World Book Day Y1
We had some really great outfits in Year 1 on World Book Day! It was great to see everyone dressed up.
World Book Day in Year 3
Year 3 all looked amazing today in their World Book Day costumes. We had a great day talking about and writing stories. We even designed statues of our favourite book characters to link with our art topic on sculpture.
As part of our unit on rivers, Year 4 have been studying different scales of maps, both on paper and electronic. It's amazing what we spotted!
Lent in Y3
Today is Ash Wednesday, so after we went to church we changed the cloth on our prayer table to purple for Lent. Then we decorated paper flowers with what we are going to do in Lent to grow closer to God.
Year 6 LOVE maths (well maths games!)
Year 6 had a great maths session on the day before half-term break - they spent the morning playing games and exploring with our new equipment!
Top fun and top learning!
Year 6 are Fire-safe!
Year 6 enjoyed a fire safety talk from Lancashire Fire and Rescue on the last few days of last term - ask them what they can remember from the powerpoint and talk!
Year 5 Projects are 'Out of this World'!
The staff in Year 5 have been so impressed with the projects the children handed in this week. It is really wonderful to see the children take such pride in both the presentation and content of their work. Well done, Year 5!
