This morning, Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to Cleadon Academy to take part in their annual careers fair. The children were able to meet with adults from all different professions and discuss what their jobs entail. They also got to try out equipment, tools and uniforms to try out what it might be like to work in areas such as: the emergency services, law, building and architecture, medicine and dentistry, sport and fitness, science and pharmaceuticals. I hope the children came away inspired about their futures!
On Wednesday 14th March, Year Six visited Safety works in Newcastle to learn about being safe when out on the streets.
They had a super time with really well-informed and engaging people who took them through scenarios to learn how to keep safe when in the home, using the Metro, shopping with friends and playing in the park. The children took part very enthusiastically and were supported by staff and parent helpers.
Acting out an arrest.
Shop keepers are usually helpful so don’t take advantage!
Trying out the ‘Recovery Position’
We know how to stay safe!
Members of Year Six carried out an investigation into dissolving of a range of materials in water. The class carried out the work very well, they were organised and then wrote up the results scientifically.
A fantastic time had by all.
Here are the songs that Key Stage 2 need to practise.
I’m already looking forward to watching this production!
On Monday 29th October, Year Six took part in a Humanities Walk into Whitburn as part of their History, Geography and RE studies. They looked at buildings in Whitburn that were in place before and during The Second World War, those which had changed function and at some sites where land had been changed specially for the demands of the war. One such place was the site of the old football ground on Lizard Lane which now has allotments and part of the cemetery on.
The children have also been learning about the features and functions of Churches and had the opportunity to visit our local Parish Church. This helped them to find out about church history- myths and truths. Why not ask your child what they found out? It was very interesting as the whole class paid attention and were extremely well-behaved during the visit. Well done Year Six.
