Year 6

Wow! Listen to our African Drumming!

During African Day, each class took part in composing, performing and recording an African drum pattern. The children used iPads which allowed them to play authentic sounding African drums by tapping pads to compose and record their pattern.

African Day

The children throughout the school enjoyed African Day last week. The children came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and took part in a range of fun activities.

The morning began with an assembly led by Mrs Innerdale. She told us about her son who is working out in a school in Botswana in Africa at the moment. We are trying to help them fund raise some money to buy football kits, guitars and sports equipment for the children in his school.

The children took part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the day;

As well as some language activities in class with Mrs Innerdale.

Testing a hypothesis

Year Six have been designing and testing their own hypothesis. Using torches and opaque card they tested to see what happens to the shadow when the light source is moved further away.

 

Newburn

Year Six finished off their residential experience with a few days at Newburn activity centre getting stuck into lots of outdoor activities. By the end of the week they were completely exhausted but enjoyed every minute.
