This morning we were lucky enough to have a taster session in Judo. We worked in partners to develop just a few of the skills and techniques needed in Judo, it was a great session and we can't wait to learn more!
This afternoon 6JB were lucky enough to have Miss Levitt from Teach 24 come in to school to help us learn how to be programmers!
We used Hopscotch to create an algorithm and make a simple game. We used our de-bugging skills to solve the problems we encountered and even decorated our games with sound effects and different characters. We cannot wait to continue improving our games and then challenging each other to play them . Our skills will really be put to the test next week when we become the teachers and demonstrate to 6SH how to be amazing programmers!
We had our Spring Term Parent Workshop today. What a wonderful morning we had!
We spent our time working in groups to make Viking Longships from the children's designs in class. Everyone put in lots of effort and the finished results are brilliant!
Thank you to all that attended or sent in materials for us to use!
This week we have celebrated Safer Internet Day. We have spent time in class discussing the dangers we could encounter when using the internet and web based items such as tablets and games consoles. We then shared ideas and tips on how we can keep ourselves and others safe whilst online.
We decided to create Powerpoints that would educate and inform the other children in school of ways that they can keep themselves safe online and what to do if they feel they are in danger. We used different fonts, images and lots of emojis to make the Powerpoints fun, interesting and appealing for our audience.
On Wednesday we had a very exciting and interesting visitor to Year 6. A Viking!
He brought a variety of artefacts, animal skins, weapons and much more.
The artefacts helped to make the information he was sharing much more realistic. We learnt a vast amount of new information and cannot wait to continue with our Viking topic this term, starting with some of the Viking Gods!
Keep an eye out for our picture in the Barnsley Chronicle this Friday, highlighting the visit.
This week Year 6 spent 3 days on residential at Robinwood. Everyone had the most fabulous, exciting time. Lots of our personal skills were put to the test including team work, resilience, confidence, problem solving and listening. It was a challenging but fun experience and a great way to develop our independence and personal relationships. The children thoroughly enjoyed challenging the teachers each evening during the team games sessions and made the most of their time away from Mums and Dads; sleeping in dorms with their friends and pushing themselves to their limits. Well done everyone for a top effort over the three days and for representing High View impeccably during your stay. We just wish we could go back again at the end of the year! #TeamHighView
