We are Year Six children, taught by Mrs Kingdon and Mrs Coultas!
Today, Year 6 had a great morning taking part in the Injury Minimization Programme for Schools (I.M.P.S.) at Abingdon Hospital.
We had the opportunity to visit the minor injury unit where we were shown some of the equipment used and watched an inter-active DVD, concentrating on injury prevention and basic first aid. We were also taught how to use an automated external defibrillator and how to put someone in the recovery position. The best part was coming home with a finger in plaster!
Computer Challenge Day
On Tuesday 15th October we spent the day at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory for a Computer Challenge day. We began the morning completing STEM activities such as programming Beebots across a maze, designing tall towers out of marshmallows and spaghetti, following codes to solve puzzles and building Lego spaceships following exact requirements.
After break we used Chrome Books to create slides about ourselves. We followed an online tutorial which taught us what to do.
In the afternoon we programmed Micro-bits.
On Wednesday 16th October, we walked to St. John the Baptist Church in Kingston Bagpuize for our Harvest Festival service.
We sang the harvest songs that we have been practicing in singing assemblies and each class stood up and showed work or read poems.
Eight Year 6 children read their haiku poems about harvest.
This Term as part of our whole school Arts week the year 6 children chose to base their work on one of their favourite books; ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell.
During the week, we learned how to draw a dragon and dragon’s eyes. We also made 3D dragon eyes and created some paper craft dragons.
For a whole school display we created a 6 foot long Dragon’s tail!
Welcome assembly for Oak and Ash Children
On Monday 4th November, we welcomed the Reception children into our school assemblies. We each chose a buddy from Oak or Ash class and stood up and told the rest of the school some interesting information about them. Lots of parents came along and we sang our specially written Welcome song. It was great fun. The reception children stood up and showed off their handprints that they had created in class.
Tag Rugby Tournaments
October and November 2019
On Thursday 17 October we took part in the FAS Rugby Festival at FCC. We entered two teams and they both did incredibly well, with Team B finishing in fourth place and Team A winning the whole competition!
As winners of the FAS event, Team A qualified for the Vale Rugby Festival held on Tuesday 5 November at Grove Rugby Club. After playing some brilliant rugby, we finished in a fantastic third place out of 18 schools and have now qualified for the County Finals in May. We can’t wait to compete in this and play against the best schools in Oxfordshire!
