Year 6

Year 6 Made the most of their final Outdoor Learning Week. They enjoyed sketching, chilling and ‘being at one’ with our forest. There were some ‘interesting’ finds from the scavenger hunt for things to decorate Mr Sharpe’s beard with! Lots of fun was had with the massive parachute. Year 6 had an outdoor ICT coding lesson – learning ‘iteration’. All the world’s a stage – even the school field – for a leavers assembly rehearsal!

Outdoor Challenges with Years 5 & 6

Years 5 & 6 showed great teamwork in the crate challenge.

They were challenged further – to build bridges for the three Billy Goats Gruff using only spaghetti and wine gums. A tricky task!

Year 6 created a blind-fold challenge course for each other. Their communication skills were really tested.

They also had a challenging scientific task  –  they had to get their egg to travel as far as it could (through the air) and come out unscathed after landing. They had a 100% safety record!



Years 4 & 6 have been calculating the length of various parts of their digestive systems and replicating them with pieces of string. The total length of each digestive system varied between 6 and 9 metres!

Year 4 investigated the effect of different liquids and the size of food on digestion.

Year 6  have tried to eat with a dry mouth and made their own stomachs!

Thank you to Ms Bunn, from Archbishop Holgate’s School, who came and showed Year 5 a whole digestive system with knitted intestines!


Year 6 were visited by students from the University of York Science Departments. They learnt all about the body’s senses.


Year 1 enjoyed a senses investigation – tasting blindfolded, feeling for a soft fluffy material and using their eyes to read the ruler accurately when measuring.

Colour with Years 5 & 6

Year 5 & 6 have been experimenting with colour. In this experiment, the children placed some Skittles in a petri dish and then filled them with water. Then they observed what happened, look at the results! On Friday they tried…
