Year 6 had an amazing day today. With it being the first day of Anti-bullying week, PC Thomas came into school to talk to the children all about bullying- its different guises and what they can do to help stop it. The children listened carefully, and we decided that having kindness and respect for everyone would make for a fabulous learning environment for us all.
This afternoon we hopped on a bus and headed to Withybush Showground where the emergency services and various other agencies had set up ready for this year’s Crucial Crew.
The children had a brilliant time, listened well and participated fully with a host of different agencies: fire service (escaping a coach/building when there is smoke/fire); food hygiene; the ambulance service (with enough resusci-dolls to give everyone a go at CPR); the police (looking at cyber bullying); power (looking at safety around electricity); domestic abuse (what to do/how to get help); the lifeguards (safety on the beaches); and road safety. The children behaved brilliantly and had a terrific time.
Year Six...the final year of Primary School...being at the top of the tree! This thought can make children nervous or anxious...not so our new Year Sixes...they have settled in amazingly well and are already working hard. They’re busy practising multiplication tables; using numbers up to ten million; they’re really enjoying our class reader, Cogheart; and many have been busy writing letters and speeches in their bid for a role of responsibility within the school.
This afternoon they have enjoyed a hands on Science lesson, classifying materials. Using a selection of gooey, sticky, squidgy, hard, soft and wet things, they decided if they were solids, liquids and gasses by noting their properties; they also discovered that oobleck was a non-Newtonian fluid. Much messy fun was had by all!
