In science, we learnt how bacteria can spread from person to person
we used moisturiser and glitter to create bacteria then shook hands.
we had fun thinking what you would use water for
Year 6 completed their setting descriptions from Macbeth and independently edited them for accuracy in grammar, punctuation and spelling.
They are wonderfully descriptive; full of imagery and atmosphere. Well done Spruce class! I bet Shakespeare himself would be truly impressed.
We took advantage of the beautiful Winter frost weather to develop our photography skills. These will be used as illustrations in the narrative stories for our Year 1 buddies.
Year 6 have been learning how to make wooden toys with cams and axels with the help of Mr senogles
Year 6 Explore the IWMN
What a thought-provoking, immersive experience our Year 6 children had at the Imperial War Museum North! They had the opportunity to independently explore the main exhibition area, watch powerful film footage of real life conflicts and engage in an interactive ‘mission’ experience which saw them receiving orders of their mission via individual headphones. The experience really enhanced our learning of World War Two and gave the children hands-on evidence of life during that period of history. I think we can all agree that the Ludworth values of determination, resilience, independence and problem solving were very much encapsulated in the lives of people living through those times!
Today, Year 6 went to Crucial Crew located at The Armoury (Stockport Army Reserve Centre). Crucial Crew is a multi-agency safety event aimed at Year 6 children (10 to 11 year olds) designed to provide children with life skills that will enable them to keep themselves and others safe. It is generally accepted that children start to become more independent at this age and are often expected to cope increasingly on their own and deal with changes in their lives, such as a move to Secondary school. The aim of our Crucial Crew event is to raise each participant’s awareness of the threats and dangers, in a fun and interactive way. The children had a great morning out; they engaging very well showing interest and enthusiasm.
Following a tough selection process, including writing an application form, designing a poster and passing through a tough selection panel (Mrs Walker and Mr Senogles), the following children in Year 6 have been chosen to lead Ludworth’s school council.
Ben Gauld - Head Councillor
Lucy Doyle - Head Councillor
Sophia Pollard - Deputy Head Councillor
Ben Wilson - Deputy Head Councillor
Congratulations to our fabulous four!
Never before have we had so many applications for positions of leadership within school. The standard of applications was incredibly high and we are so proud of all our Year 6 who took the time to put themselves forward. These children really embody the school values of determination, communication and courage. You are amazing Year 6!
In the first few days, Year 6 have been meeting their Year 1 buddies and sharing all the key moments of their Ludworth journey so far. We have also been reading to them and helping them with getting to know the school. As part of our first task in English, we have written letters to our buddies to welcome them to a new school year.
In P.E year 6 have been working hard in circuit training and building up some muscles! In art, we designed a class logo and moto to represent our new class based on the tree representing each class. We also wrote all about us on a pair of sunglasses shaped paper and drew a self portrait underneath. Stay tuned for pictures of this when they are ready for display!
