Our Classes

Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6

Year 6

Shakespeare Week

 

Not only were All Saints' lucky enough to watch the school perform 'The Tempest' (years 3-5), the class also watched a cartoon version, acted out a scene and discussed the importance of different characters within the plot.

 

The children also wrote a persuasive letter to explain if Caliban was a friend or foe.

 

   

 

Escape the ice

 

In science, our mission was to save the 'Plastic Adventurer' who was stuck in the ice.

 

In small groups, the children had to decide what was the best way to rescue the figurine - putting it in a bowl of warm water? Or maybe putting it on the windowsill.  How about tapping it with a hammer?

 

After excavating the Adventurer, the children were asked to draw a sequence events and consider also, if they were to repeat the experiment, what would they change and why.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poo from the Past!

 

Today, our Year 6 classes made poo - yes poo!

 

The idea of finding old human poo seems disgusting, and the thought of cutting it up and studying it is even worse, but this is exactly what our children did - for the afternoon they became archaeologists.

 

First they made the poo using a mixture of flour, paint, water and oil then added the undigested bits using chickpeas and apricots.  There job was to then disect the poo to unveil its origin.

 

   

 

  

 

 

Maths Games

 

On Friday 16th February we were asked to create our own maths game. We needed to include questions about percentages of amounts. We could also use questions about the four operations and BODMAS. ​  Not only did this give us the chance to be creative, we used our reasoning and problem solving skills within our group. 

 

    

 

 

 

Natural History Museum

 

As part of their history topic Year 6 visited the Natural History Museum in London.

 

 

Read below the pupils accounts of the day:

 

Firstly we went to a variety show.  The man that led it introduced himself, he said his name was Connor.  He said that we are going to talk about humans so we looked at some types of species, a girl from the audience came up and represented humans.  We then were talking about what species we came from. We kept on talking about that until we came to modern day humans but we started as animals! Klaudia 6VK

 

 

We went on an earthquake simulator that remade the feelings of an earthquake in a shop.  The ground shook and all the stuff in the shop shook to. We went through each phase and felt what it was like.  Tianna 6VK

 

The last major thing was our second workshop where we became Palaeontologists and we had to sort these items into groups, fossils, shells, and rocks.  After we had big red boxes that had a skeleton in and we had to identify our skull that our group had.  We were given a sheet that had 4 skulls on from dinosaurs.  We were given paintbrushes to brush off the wood chips that were laid on the skull.  Our skull was an Allosaurus.   Toby 6VK

 

 

 

 

In this photo we are in front of a blue whale. It was a life size replica of an actual blue whale! It was huge.  After all of that we went home, what a busy day. 

 

 

 

 

Mr Humbug sees the light

 

Year 6 have had fun rehearsing and performing their Christmas production.

 

 

Christmas Fayre

 

At our Christmas Fayre year 6 set up tombola stalls and fun games to raise money for the school.

 

   

 

 

 

 

What a Wonderful World

 

On Thursday 16th November, we invited parents/carers to our exit point, where we showcased all our fantastic work/homework on the topic 'What a Wonderful World (Natural World)' which leads us into the next topic 'Out of Africa', a topic on evolution.

 

The afternoon included following activities:

- making 'soil cakes'

- making  our own clouds

- creating geographical features out of salt dough

- producing Charles Fazzino art work

- answering  a quiz

 

     

 

 

We had a Design Technology (D.T) teacher visit from Trinity School who had a table containing food from around the world which we were able to sample.

 

 

Our hall was turned into a gallery for the afternoon!

 

 

 

 

 

Visit to Baitul Ehsan Mosque

 

On Thursday 16th November, Year 6 visited the Mosque in Leamington Spa. Our session, which was led by Mrs Attia Shams, allowed Year 6 to ask a variety of questions.  Also, Mrs Shams explained the meaning of Islam. During our visit, Year 6 were lucky enough to eat samosas and cupcakes- they were delicious!

The visit was very informative and we learnt something new.  A big thank you to Mrs Shams  and her team for organising such an interesting morning

 

    

 

 

 

 

Blood Soup

 

In science, year 6 created 'blood soup'.  Children were given cubes, bubble wrap, foam, coins and water.  In groups they were asked to use the objects to represent the four components within our blood - red blood cells, white bloods, platelets and plasma.  They were then asked to create a fact-file on the different functions within our blood.

 

       

 


 

Bikeability

 

Year 6 had the opportunity to take part in a Bikeability course which is designed to give children the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today's roads. Everyone who completed

the course was awarded with a Bikeability certificate of achievement and a badge.

 

 

 

Robinwood 2017

 

Year 6 had a fantastic time on their annual trip to Robinwood. They took part in a variety of activities which helped to build their confidence, team working, communication and listening skills. They all pushed themselves and should be proud of their efforts. Some of the activities the children participated in included canoeing, raft-building, trapeze, caving, zip-wire and the piranha pool (all the children returned with their limbs intact). The children were fantastic and represented our school brilliantly – well done everyone!

 

   

 

   

 

              

 

 

 

 

 

              

 

 

 

  

 

          

 

   

 

              

 

 

 

 

 

             

 

 

 

STEM Day at Trinity School

 

On Thursday 14th September, Year 6 were kindly invited to Trinity Catholic School for a fun-packed day of activities in science, design and technology.

 

Both classes made delicious cheese pizza and worked at separating materials by filtering and evaporating salt walter.  In design technology, 6VK made pencil cases out of plastic bags and 6SU made a light and discussed the importance of renewable energy.
