Design Technology Day

 

Today we put our design into practice. We made our fruit taquitos. We learnt new skills along the way. Kneading dough, measuring ingredients accurately, cooking the taquito as well as creating a filling. Take a look at our pictures. 

In History we took on the role of different people in WW1. Take a look at our pictures. 

Check out this guy. He's absolutely loving reading at the moment. He can't put this book down. Reading at any opportunity. Well done Reegan. 

Who will get my postcard home this week? 

Is it going to be you? 

Have a think, have you gone above and beyond this week? Can you go above and beyond next week? 

We had a visit from the NSPCC. We learnt about different ways in which we can keep ourselves safe.  Take a look at our pictures. 

A lovely afternoon spent with our parents and carers. We enjoyed showing them all what skills we have learnt and our amazing end products.  Our parents and carers did a fantastic job creating their own eyes and lips. 

A massive thank you to all that were able to attend. 

Welcome back to the new term.

This term our main topic is "Can any good come out of war?" We will be learning about: Germany’s invasion of Poland  which caused France and Britain to go to war with them, 

how many children were evacuated from cities to live in the country side, due to transport issues, all food was rationed and many people started to grow their own food.

We will be using the book Goodnight Mr Tom as part of our English lessons and Whole Class Reading to support us with our understanding of war. 

Please take a look at our Topic Plan. 

Myself, Mrs Spence and Mrs Baxter would like to wish you all a wonderful and restful Christmas break. 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to each and every one. 

Lots of loveheart

Today Year 6 took part in "What's your job?" focusing on careers and aspirations. A group of volunteers came into school organised by the North Manchester Business Network and the children had to guess the jobs by asking questions. We hope you enjoy our pictures. 

This afternoon Redwood class participated in an  Empathy Plus Migration workshop  with the British Red Cross. We really enjoyed the session and Dan, who delivered it, was very impressed with out knowledge which we have developed in English and our Class Story The Boy at the Back of the Class.

Empathy Day

In our P4C lesson this week we continued to look at racism related to our RE learning. We listened to the story "Let's Talk About Race." We had a lot of discussion around this and found the story very insightful. We agreed that we are all the same and we should always treat everyone equal. 

Take a look at our learning in our P4C book. 

 

Watch the You Tube video below to listen to the story. We know you will enjoy it.
