Y6 had a summer picnic yesterday. The children spent the day cooking and preparing food in class. Family and friends came in to sample the dishes at the end of the day.
Year Five visited the Life Centre in Wigan to participate in ‘Crucial Crew 2016.Throughout the morning, the children participated in 6 sessions which covered topics including road safety, crossing roads safely, basic first aid, recycling, stranger danger and healthy lifestyles. The sessions were ran by representatives from the NHS, Wigan Council and GM Police. The children had lots of fun and learnt some valuable new facts and skills.
The children and staff had a great time this afternoon whilst taking part in the Race for Life to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
As part of our Titanic themed science week, Year 5 have explored how cold water affects the body. We carried out tasks and timed how long it took us to do them. We then put our hands into a bucket of icy water for 2 minutes and timed how long it took to do the same activity. We found that cold water definitely slows our bodies down!
This week has been our ‘World of Work’ week. All classes have spent the week learning about aspects of a different career. Reception have been learning about the fire service, Year 1 have looked at the different jobs in a garden centre, Year 2 have been learning more about the job of a pilot, Year 3 have been looking at restaurants (and even visited Nando’s), Year 4 have been learning about the different jobs in a doctor’s surgery (they were visited by a real doctor), Year 5 have been learning about travel agents and Year 6 have been looking at different military careers.
On Tuesday, children from Key Stage 2 took part in the Leigh School Games. Our Year 6 rugby team participated in a contact rugby tournament and teams from Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 took part in quad kids, an athletics event. Our rugby team won the tournament, our Year 5/6 athletics team came second and we won awards for passion and teamwork. We had lots of fun and really enjoyed our day!
