Science ambassadors’ day out!

We went to SHU as part of our science ambassador role.

We talked to other schools about what we have been doing in science this year. We showed them our swimming raisins experiment.

In the afternoon we extracted DNA from a strawberry in the STEM lab.

We had an amazing day.

Y6 enjoy the sunshine

It was a beautiful day on Friday, so we took the opportunity to do some outdoor learning! First, we used our known facts to find missing angles of overlapping masking tape. Later, we had a grammar treasure hunt!

Learning about Nutrition

This afternoon, Y6 visited Sheffield Hallam University for their Nutrition Fair. The children were invited to try foods, learn about the nutritional benefits of different foods and speak to representatives from the university about how to stay healthy.

There were lots of different foods available, including mealworms and cricket flour! It was great that the children got the chance to ask lots of questions and try with different foods.

KS2 SATs information

Last night, we had an information evening about the KS2 SATs the the Y6 children will be sitting in May. Here are the slides from the evening. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to pop in and see me.

World Book day and spelling fun in Y6

On Thursday, we had our own Totley Book Day. As well as dressing up, we enjoyed playing a range of spelling games. Here are some pictures of our fun.

Year 6 Choose Kind Campaign

After many lessons about Choose Kind and the book Wonder, Year 6 today went to Fargate in Town. We gave out information leaflets that we had written and asked people to pledge to Choose Kind by signing a contract. Some people told us about their experiences with bullying in the past or present. Here are some pictures.

When Sasha Got Stuck Up The Chimney

After weeks of learning lines and rehearsing for the Christmas play, Y6 and the rest of KS2 put on a fantastic performance of ‘When Sasha Got Stuck Up The Chimney’. The Y6 children put so much work into practising for leading the play, and you could tell by the quality of the performances! They really shone and we were so proud of them. Lines were delivered superbly which led to three really entertaining shows.

Here are some pictures.

Thornbridge Y6

Y6 had an amazing time at Thornbridge last week. We took part in many activities, including high ropes, zip wire, mountain biking and climbing. We showed our school golden rules of looking out for each other and being sensible, and displayed our fantastic attitudes to learning by being team players and resilient. The weather was mixed (and some photos show us running through the rain), but that did not stop us from having a brill time!

Here are some pictures from our time away.

Y6 VE day

Y6 celebrated the end of their WW2 based topic with a VE day. We enjoyed games, cake and dancing. The children came dressed up and looked amazing with lovely dressed, flat caps and victory rolls. Y6 had been working hard on a song and a dance which they performed for parents. Please click to see the videos of their performances.

A sporty day!

It was  a very sporty day yesterday for many children from KS2 as we had Primary Athletics and the Swimming Gala! We took 29 children from Y5 and 6 to compete against 14 other schools at Woodbourn road. There were a range of activities including long jump, 800m run, 600m walk, 60m sprint and ball throwing. Some children did so well in their activity that they have been selected to compete in the final, so watch this space for an update after June 22nd! All of them, however, made us very proud with their fantastic attitude and commitment to supporting each other.

Some of those children also came along to the swimming gala! Children from Y3-6 raced well in teams to represent Totley. They gave it their all and for many of them it was the first time they had competed in a swimming race! They showed great determination and teamwork.

Well done Ks2!
