Year 6 spent the day at Shildon learning about electricity and motors. We even made our own cars then raced them! From looking at the trains, we knew that it was important to use large wheels and make our cars as light and as streamlined as possible.
We loved our sponsored hooping day. As you can see, we have a lot of talented hula hoopers in Year 6!
Year 6 had a fantastic time at our Caleigh as part of sports week!
Year 6 have been having a great time at the marina!
Year 6 had a great afternoon at the Ski Slope as a reward for all our hard work in the SATs!
We had an amazing time at Robin Wood!
We were really excited about the snow this week and enjoyed playing in it on Thursday afternoon! Some of us worked together to build a huge snowman!
As part of our Design Technology lessons, we have been making carrot cookies. We first tried this recipe when we visited Beamish Museum. During rationing in WW2, people would use carrots to add sweetness to their biscuits. Ours tasted delicious!
We had a great time at our Christmas party and played lots of games!
Today we visited a Jewish Synagogue. It was amazing to see the synagogue in real life after learning about this in our RE lessons! We met a Jewish man and lady who welcomed us to the synagogue – the boys were asked to wear a kippah before entering as this is the normal custom. First, we watched a presentation and had a discussion about what we knew already; we talked about things such as Hanukah and the difference between Christianity and Judaism. After this, we were given the chance to look around the synagogue. We were shown the Torah in small groups – we were told this Torah had been hand- written over three hundred years ago (even though it looked brand new)! We learnt a lot from this experience and really enjoyed finding out more about the Jewish religion.
