This morning we got a chance to hold the gorgeous chicks! They are going to be collected by a farmer later on today, so it was lovely to see them before they went!

This afternoon we investigated creating different electrical circuits. We then had a go at drawing these in our books using the correct scientific symbols. When we found that a circuit didn't work, we had to discuss why we thought this was the case.

Today we had lots of fun in the snow! It isn't very often that we get snow in Lytham St Annes, so we had to go out and make the most of it before it melted!
WORLD BOOK DAY 2023

What a wonderful start to the week! We were very lucky to have started our Monday morning off with some yoga. We all felt very calm and refreshed going into our maths lesson afterwards! Thank you Sophie for being a wonderful yoga instructor!

We have been studying 'Art in Nature' and looking at different landscapes. Alongside this, we have also been looking at 'Environmental Artists' and we have tried to create some of our own art using water colours, which highlights the issue of ocean pollution and global warming. Mrs Fox has put some of our BEAUTIFUL art work on display in the hall!

In English, we have been reading Macbeth. As part of our topic, we have been writing letters and newspaper reports. We have edited out work and then typed them up. Some of us have even made them look 'old-fashioned' by using tea bags and coffee and rubbed these over our work. Look how great they are looking!
6th January 2023
In PE this week, we have been getting ready for the year 5/6 sports hall athletics competition coming up at the end of the month. We moved round the circuit participated in lots of different indoor athletics activities. It was a great way to test of fitness, speed and stamina!

This afternoon, we had a very calm and relaxing yoga session. We participated in some mindfulness strategies and different yoga poses. At the end of the session, we got to lie down and listen to calming, ocean music and some of us were that relaxed that we almost fell asleep!
Thank you for a great session, Claire!
28th November 2022
We had a nice treat this afternoon! We watched The Wizard of Oz as part of our English unit. This week we will be writing a formal film review of this film and therefore we had to cast our expert eyes over it!
21st November 2022
In English, we analysed some song lyrics and got to listen to them. We discussed how these lyrics made us feel and the theme behind these songs. Tomorrow, we are going to be re-writing the lyrics to "Somewhere over the rainbow" as part of our poetry unit.
10th November 2022
This afternoon we had lots of fun in our PE lessons. We started with gymnastics and planned out our own sequences. They had to include at least one counter-balance and one-counter tension. We then incorporated some of the apparatus into our sequences. We then went outside and developed our football skills by dribbling the football and making accurate passes.
2nd November 2022
The children have had lots of fun in their first bikeability session. The children started off in the playground this morning and rehearsed different signals and movements. In the afternoon, the children were able to go out of school boundaries and onto the roads of our local area.
Thank you to the wonderful instructors for making this possible!
HAPPY HALF TERM
I hope you have a lovely break and I will see you all in a week!

Take a look at our newly appointed Year 6 prefects!
This afternoon they received a vey special letter from Mrs. Walton, congratulating them all for their wonderful applications. I know that they all will set a shining example for the rest of the school and I know that teachers will be looking forward to their extra help!
Well done everyone - we are very proud of you all!
21st September 2022
This morning, we had a practical Maths lesson. We investigated different ways of making cubes and cuboids and how many extra cubes it would take to make these shapes. This will help with our next lesson, where we will begin to look at 3d nets and constructing 3d shapes from these.
20th September 2022
Today, we had lots of fun taking part in a STEM challenge. We had to build a robot that could move. We had to pay close attention to the legs, wheels and balances. Thank you for all your help and letting us take part in this exciting opportunity, Fran!
We even got our own mini bag of Lego to take home!
