TeenTech Festival – 8th July 2022
Year 6 have enjoyed taking part in the ‘TeenTech’ Festival in association with York St John University. In groups, they designed an eco-friendly building of the future and then some children were invited to share their models at the university. The TeenTech event was highly interactive and designed to inspire young people and their teachers about the contemporary world of Science, Engineering and Technology. The event gave the children the opportunity to try their hand at experiments, to handle leading edge technology and, most importantly to spend time with the engineers, technologists and scientists influencing 21st century lives.
Today, Year 6 were visited by local police officers to discuss anti-social behaviour.: identifying what constitutes ASB and the consequences. The children were given the opportunities to ask questions and look around the police van!
DT – Cooking and Nutrition – ‘Great British Food’
As part of Design Technology, the children have been learning how to cook a Cornish pasty by using a range of cooking techniques. The children had the opportunity to taste a variety of pasties before making one of their own. This week, the children completed the process by making the filling, and finally cooking. We are extremely impressed with the results!
Leavers’ Service 2022 – Selby Abbey – 29th June 2022
Stepping Forward – Diocese Of York
The Year 6 children and staff attended the leavers’ service in Selby Abbey which was planned and delivered by students from the following secondary schools: All Saints Academy, Ingleby Barwick, Archbishop Sentamu Academy, Hull, Manor Academy and Archbishop Holgate’s School.
The children had time to reflect on their time at primary school as well as looking forward to new opportunities, or worries, as they step forward to a new school. The children were able to lay a footprint to created a pathway around the abbey – this represented their reflections and prayers.
Year 6 Residential to Boggle Hole: 20th – 23rd June 2022
Here are a few of the photographs taken last week…More to come!
Internet Safety – 9th March 2022
On Wednesday, Year 5 and 6 were visited by Oliver Maskell who is a Police Community Support Officer. He talked to the children about staying safe online by discussing the following topics:
- How the internet is used
- Age restrictions for various social media apps and games
- Cyber bullying
- What is personal/not personal information
- Safe online communication with others
- Sharing images and videos
There was an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session which encouraged discussion and helped to answer any misconceptions. We hope to see Mr Maskell again soon!
Science Homework – Biome in a Bag!
The children planted seeds in a rainforest biome and observed what happened. The water inside the bag recycled (evaporated) to produce water droplets – this is called condensation. The condensation then fell back down to the ground, like rain. This is the water cycle – evaporation, condensation and precipitation.
