Science Week

Date: 26th Apr 2018 @ 2:03pm

As part of science week we investigated circuits as part of our electricity topic. We worked out how the brightness of the bulb changed by increasing the amount of bulbs and batteries in the circuit…

Denico:

“First we made a simple circuit and then we added another bulb and I noticed that bulbs became dimmer. When we added two batteries and one bulb, the light was much brighter. “

Shape Sort!

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 10:01am

We really enjoyed sorting shapes today into Venn diagrams and Carroll diagrams. We used properties of shapes to help us to classify them, including parallelograms and  perpendicular lines. Why not practise at home?

Prime Number Practise

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:58am

Following on from today’s lesson, use this game to help you practise recognising prime numbers

Remember to scroll through to find the prime number option.

Plus, bring 3 examples to prove that this trick works. Remember, you can use short division to divide by 12.

The Prime Number Trick

Using prime numbers, you can amaze your friends with a prime prediction…

  • Ask your friends to pick any prime number bigger than 5, but they must not tell you what it is.
  • Square it. (In other words multiply the prime number by itself.)
  • Add 17
  • Divide by 12

Without knowing which prime number your friends picked, you can still tell them: There will be a remainder of 6

Practise your missing angles skills…

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:32am

Following on from today’s lesson, use the Maths Frame game that was on the board to practise  will more at home.

Remember that you will need to log in with the school username and password and choose ” Angles in a triangle”.

Stockport Air Raid shelter

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:29am

On our visit to the Stockport Air Raid shelter and museum we went back in time…we arrived as confused evacuee children waiting to be billeted and sent to new host families…but the ARP and the Nurse showed us all the ropes and with plenty of singing and asking questions we were ready!

Junior Olympian visits Ravensbury!

We were delighted to welcome NAOMI OGBETA  to our school to teach us how to do triple jump! Thank you so much!

Reading Workshop 2017

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:26am

Thank you so much to all the parents who came to our reading workshop and learnt about the best way to support their child in the essential life skill of reading.

The children showed the adults the sort of genres and books we like reading and how we do “active reading”

…the sorts of books we have in our library….

…the programmes that we use at school and home to support our reading…

…the kinds of questions we need to practice, the kind of resources we use and how to ask those questions, and finally, the children got to choose a book from the book buffet and a goodie bag to take home!

If your grown up was unable to come, don’t worry, there will be another chance later in the year!

And the grand total is...

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:24am

£398. 84!!! Well done!

Today we practised asking and giving opinions on school subjects in Spanish…what brilliant accents and confidence we are developing.

What did you learn at Ghyll Head?

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:20am

Josh: First I t thought all the activities would be scary but once I did one activity I just kept pushing myself to do more. My favourite thing was jumping in the lake because it was something totally different – in fact I have only ever been in water in the bath or at the swimming pool!

Adam: It was definitely worth it because the instructors were really helpful and kind and encouraged us to do all the activities. I felt really proud that I did the zip-wire, I was very nervous before…but it was the best feeling ever when you take a step off the platform and fly through the air!

Olivia: The canoeing was definitely the best because we got to jump in the lake – when Wanessa went in first she screamed her head off! I felt really proud of myself during canoeing because I was very determined and tried my hardest to be a good leader. I think the food was amazing too,especially the desserts!

Taylor-Louise: I thought Ghyll Head was a great experience because there were so many activities to do. if you didn’t want to do one or you were scared, everyone supported you to have a go. I got to know some other children well that I didn’t know before in my group, like Emmanuel.

Check those fingernails!

Last week Year 6 met two terrifying teachers from the time of WW2: Mrs Gilbertson and Mrs Robertson. First there was a fingernail inspection…

Then the boys were separated from the girls and they had completely different activities….the girls had to do  all the task that girls in WW2 would have had to do, like cooking, folding clothes and ironing…

…while the boys got to play with jacks, cars, aeroplanes and toy soldiers…That’s hardly fair!!!

Then it was time to collect names on dance cards for partner at the upcoming WW2 Ravensbury Annual Ball…

What will you wear for the dance?

Andy Goldsworthy-inspired art part 2…

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:12am

Using the natural resources that we collected last time, we explored  some of the key elements of art to create our own work. This session we sketched the leaves paying attention to FORM….

…made a foam template and used them for some two-tone lino printing, paying attention to COLOUR…

…and finally made some natural sculptures using the laminator, paying attention to PATTERN.

Making Andy Goldsworthy-inspired natural sculptures

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:08am

Autumn is the perfect time of year for some art, and Andy Goldsworthy is the perfect source of inspiration…. first we explored his natural, temporary sculptures and then went outside to find materials for our own. More to follow!
