News reporters!

Date: 15th Jan 2020 @ 11:10am

We have been working hard all week as journalists writing our first drafts of a news report about the declaration of war by Neville Chamberlain in 1939. Proof reading our own writing is a very difficult skill but we have worked in pairs to support each other in the process and we found it very useful. Mrs Ranyard was really impressed with how we supported each other- Great teamwork!

Year 6 visit to the Imperial War Museum

Date: 14th Nov 2019 @ 11:40pm

We had a brilliant visit to the Imperial War Museum North last week. We found out lots about the Blitz and the effect of war on different people's lives. We especially enjoyed the BIG PICTURE SHOW which was projected on the large walls of the museum and told real people's stories and memories from the Second World War- our new topic this term. It was really special as we commemorated Remembrance Sunday last week when we remember soldiers who have fought in all wars.

World War Two topic launch

Date: 6th Nov 2019 @ 11:02pm

Today was exciting as we went back in time to September 3rd 1939 to the day World War Two began. We all enjoyed being in role and taking part in a school day with our war names and meeting our war teachers... Miss Gilbertson and Miss Wilson. We were just taking part in our school dance when the siren went...then it was straight back to our rooms to gather around the "wireless" and listen to Neville Chamberlain's speech.Over the next few weeks we will be researching how war began and what life was like for people during the Blitz. Click here to find out more and click the picture below to hear Neville Chamberlain's speech.

On Monday, Year 6 had a thrilling and wet day out at Scotsman Flash. As part of our Golden Week celebrations for all our hard work this year we headed off to Wigan for a day of kayaking, canoeing and rafting! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves  and we even managed to coax Miss Coulson into the water! WATER DAY OUT!! 

Year 6 visit to Blackpool Zoo

Date: 25th Jun 2019 @ 5:08pm

We have done a lot of fun thing this year but today was a really fabulous day out. We visited Blackpool Zoo as part of our science topic: "Evolution and Adaptation."  Daniel said it was, "The best day ever!" We even managed to dodge the rain as we hung out with the monkeys, giraffes and lions and penguins. Have a look at our video to see how much fun we had. 


Haunted House stories

Date: 13th Jun 2019 @ 11:41am

Today we scared ourselves silly sharing our Haunted House stories!

"I loved the brilliant description in Paige's story- I could really imagine the scary house from all her similes and metaphors."      Aminat

"Saina's story was really scary and spooky, I could really see feel how scared her character's were." Lora

"Fantastic vocabulary in Brandon's story." Thomas

I really liked the way Aminat didn't give the ending away- it was really dramatic... and SCARY!  Nahara

"Ryan used brillant vocabulary to create a spooky atmosphere." Thomas

"Thomas and Daim had brilliant description mixed in with dialogue and action." Paige 

"Daim's character's jumped off the page" Brandon




After Sats FUN!!

Date: 5th Jun 2019 @ 10:32pm

After all our hard work for our Sats we have had a chance to relax a little and have some fun! We played games, hung out and did some sketching outside! Well deserved Year 6!!!


Date: 22nd May 2019 @ 2:07pm


We set the year 6 children a series of maths challenges. They needed to solve the maths clues in teams that were hidden around the room. The clues led them to a 10 digit code that would enable them to escape the room! Thankfully some teams managed this before breaktime! Yikes! Well done Violet, Enoch and Ellie.

Lots of fun - well done Year 6!
