On Tuesday 18th June, Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their day at Keelman’s Way School. We split up into small groups and joined the children in their classes for the day. We helped them with their lessons and experienced a wide variety of activities including;
On Tuesday 11th June, Y6 took part in the Y6 Leavers’ Service at Durham Cathedral. There were over ten other primary schools represented, while there were also comprehensive school children present helping run the prayer stations and the service itself. Unfortunately, we were asked not to take any photographs at the event, but believe us when we say that we had a great time and, as always, St Oswald’s were definitely the best singers there!
Eleanor and Oliver had a spa day, visited dippy, played with friends and tried an aqua-sphere! A fun, busy week off!
Year Six SAT’s start tomorrow! A huge good luck to each and everyone of you however remember this is one week in your learning journey so far. This poem sums up SAT’s for me!! Good luck you lovely lot! Have a good nights sleep 😴! See you in the morning for bacon sandwiches! Love Mrs Smith xx
Oliver and Eleanor have been busy having lots of fun. We ended a perfect Easter at the sunrise service yesterday.
Our amazing school librarians finished their book changes today and were surprised with these lovely, new Puffin School Librarians badges! We would be lost without these superstars running our school library and LOVE how much enthusiasm they have for books and reading for pleasure!
Y6 thoroughly enjoyed heading to Poland today for Faraway Friday! We listened to a range of Polish music from across the ages and then looked to replicate specific styles we had heard using Garage Band. The children developed their vocabulary hugely today, using musical terms such as rhythm, tempo, pitch, harmony and texture precisely.
Year 6 today enjoyed completing the wiring for their electric vehicles. All aspects of STEM were needed as the children focus on electricity (science), joining components (technology), applying their knowledge and understanding to a product (engineering) and measuring (maths). It came as no shock to see the whole class loving this electrical challenge!
