Year 6 – Mr W Broadhurst + Mrs H Gibbons

Welcome to Year 6

Year 6 attended a net/wall/ball session at Whitworth Park on Friday. They tried badminton, mini tennis, pickleball and volleyball and tried out lots of new games.

On Thursday we had a visit from Northumbria University grad students who ran an English escape room with the children. They did a fantastic job! In the afternoon we had a visit from NERAP (The North East Raising Attainment Partnership) who talked to the children about different reasons for considering attending university and the possible benefits of this.

Year 6 visited the new library in Spennymoor leisure centre. We enjoyed exploring the range of books available and have each loaned a book to take back to school until our next visit.

Year 6 have been learning all about circuits in science this term. We used that knowledge to make working buzzer games for our DT project. They were fabulous!

 

 

Year 6 have been making Christmas cards to share with people unfortunate enough to have to spend their Christmas in hospital. We included some lovely drawings and some fabulous messages of support, including a few Christmas cracker jokes!
