Michelle, who works in the lab for Northumbrian Water, came into year 6 to do some experiments. She taught us about what to not put down the toilet and the sink. We learned about the toilet water cycle and that it is healthy. We also conducted experiments about what happened to certain materials that were put down the toilet. We talked about littering and the environment and we have filled an eco-brick with non-recyclable plastics in school too. We learned a lot – but it was fun too. Phoebe, Y6
Whitburn Church of England Academy are hosting an information evening regarding their Accelerated Mandarin Programme. Further details can be found below.
We gave a half term reward to several year 6 pupils who have been making good choices throughout all aspects of the school day, including behaviour, work and the respect they show each other and the adults in school. Well done!
Year six have created some amazing projects to showcase their learning from this term’s study of WW2. They presented their work to their peers. We have had cookies made from rationed ingredients; interactive quizzes; a life-sized ration pack; family WW2 history studies – including medals, report cards and ration books; Anderson shelter models; non-fiction books that the children created themselves and many, many more creative ideas.
We are really impressed with the children’s hard work and determination throughout this experience, well done year six.
We thought that you might enjoy looking at a selection of the photographs from this year’s residential trip to Thurston. It looks like everyone had an amazing time.
