Animating red kites with the Baltic!

Today we had a visit from an artist from the Baltic. We used the app ' istopmotion ' to create different animations based on red kite birds. First we had to mould and shape plasticine into the bird shape. Then we had to move it a tiny amount at a time to use the app...

Year 6 Enterprise preparation.

This is morning we went to Morrisons to buy items we need for our Enterprise week. Every break time next week we will be running tuck shops to raise money for our Leavers hoddies. We have had to work out what we could buy with our money and then make sure we price our...

Fun at the school allotment!

Yesterday we went up to the school allotment with Mrs Hall. Year 5 spent some time de-weeding their plant bed so they will be ready for new seeds to be planted while Year 6 planted beetroot seeds in their plant bed. Now we just need to wait for them to grow!...

Debating the railway revolution!

Today we have taken on the role of different historical figures to debate whether or not the railways were an advantage to the Victorian society or a disadvantage. After looking at the evidence, we all came our own conclusions but we had to justify them with...

Outdoor athletic coaching: long distance running.

This is week we have been practising our long distance running skills- we had to make sure we didn't sprint at the start so that we had energy to keep going for the whole race! It was extremely hot and sunny up at the oasis today so we made sure we drank plenty of...

Solving riddles by cracking codes at Blaydon library!

This is afternoon we had a great time at Blaydon Library! We got into groups to act out some book titles for other people to guess- some of them were trickier to guess than others! Then Maria read out some book titles and we had to decide if they were real book titles...

Sailing on the Tyne!

Last week some of us from Year 6 took the opportunity to go sailing with The Ocean Youth Trust. We set sail from the Royal Quays in North Shields and headed along the Tyne river to the Newcastle Quayside. While on the boat, we were shown around and had to help with...

Theories of evolution.

This is week in Science we have been learning about different theories of evolution. We sorted different theories into different categories before answering some questions about...

Baltic visit: Summer 2017

This is afternoon we returned to Baltic to explore two new exhibitions. The first one was a photo exhibition by Rodney Graham called ' That's not me'. It was really interesting because all of the photographs featured him in different settings. We looked at each one...

Outdoor athletic coaching: indoors!

Because of the rain, we had to do athletics indoors this week. We spent time practising the skills that we have been working on for the past few weeks: running, relays and hurdles. We are so fast that we are blurry in a lot of the photos!...

Visit to Cragside in the sunshine!

As part of our 'Victorious Victorians' topic, we visited Cragside house and gardens yesterday. When we arrived we had a short tour around parts of Lord Armstrong's house. It is huge so we only had time to look around a few of the rooms. During one of our workshops we...

Amazing adaptation!

This afternoon we had a visit from some students from Newcastle University who did some work with us on animal adaptations. We had to design our own birds so they could survive in certain habitats which meant we had to think carefully about their adaptations. We then...
