What an amazing time we had at the National Space Centre Museum!
We loved exploring the galleries and finding out all about the space race, what it is like for an astronaut to travel and work in space and explored wonders of the universe.
The planetarium show was incredible and we felt as though we were travelling through space. We explored how gravity works on different planets, how planets orbit the sun in our solar system and even managed to experience what it might be like to be an astronaut by climbing into replica space rocket, which was a very tight squeeze, and communicating to Earth using the communication system.
We had a fabulous time making our salads this week. The art room was bursting with delicious, fresh scents of the Mediterranean foods we used and everyone worked so well: sharing, safely cutting and preparing their food together.
Great job Class 8!
We thoroughly enjoyed tasting ingredients for our Greek salads this week.
We we so brave and so many children tried something new. We decided on our favourite foods to include and designed our own salads, which we will make next week. Looking forward to a delicious Wednesday!
Our Year 6 children had a great afternoon learning all about emergency first aid. Everyone really enjoyed learning what to do if someone was choking or not breathing and gained incredibly valuable life skills.
Once again, my class made me very proud with their fabulous behaviour and contributions in the session.
Thank you to the wonderful ladies who delivered the session.
Super proud of class 8 this week in reading.
Everyone was amazingly supportive, encouraging and resilient in our partner reading session.
I loved seeing how great they were at attentively listening to each other and responding with help if their partners got stuck.
Wonderful work everyone - keep it up!
What a fabulous start to our year together!
Class 8 have shown amazing teamwork and reasoning skills when we sorted adverbials this week.
Keep up the hard word everyone.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the annual Barnsley Music Festival was unable to take place at the Metrodome. Instead the children joined a virtual festival and even joined in with a piece of music that they had been practising, along with a song they had learnt too. The children also had the opportunity to watch children from other schools perform. We are very proud of our children for their efforts and are also grateful to Mr Lennon who tutors Class 8 every week for Brass and Mr Ramskill who teaches percussion to the our Y6 children.
It is always such a joy to listen to this talented young lady play.
She lights up the room. 😊
We really enjoyed investigating how light travels in science this week. We worked together to change the direction of the light beams using mirrors to direct light around corners towards a 'goal'.
Whole Class Reading
We are really enjoying our whole class reading sessions.
Our favourite day is paired reading where we get to take it in turns to model wonderful reading and help each other out if we get stuck. I loved seeing how focused and encouraging you all were this week; keep up the amazing work everyone!
