Year 5/6 had so much fun participating in a full Viking day experience! We set up a trading post and used grain to exchange for goods. Children worked in teams to gather as much grain as possible to see who were the most successful traders at the end of the day.
In order to receive grain, they had to buy Viking tasks to complete and the traders would then buy them back. Excellent teamwork was demonstrated by all and it was a fantastic opportunity to put all of our Viking knowledge to use! Well done!
Miss Stainton’s class enjoyed participating in a range of safer internet day activities this afternoon. We spent a long time discussing how to use the internet and social media platforms sensibly and safely.
We then finished the afternoon by acting out different situations which could happen when using the internet…there are some fantastic actors and actresses in year 6!
We have been working really hard in Y5/6 to gather information about ‘The Vikings’. Last week, we embarked on a Viking QR code hunt challenge and searched the pod for lots of interesting facts. This week, we used those facts to write up a non-chronological report. Our writing skills are really improving! Well done!
Miss Stainton’s maths class have been working really hard this week completing translation challenges.
We have improved our accuracy and are confident in translating a range of simple and more complex shapes across all 4 quadrants, incorporating our knowledge on co-ordinates too! Excellent work!
On Friday, our Y56 seven-aside football team attended the HSFA finals. This was an immensely difficult competitions. Over 300 schools entered, and on this night the top ten teams were there. This included three teams from Hull: Christopher Pickering, Victoria Dock and Eastfield.
It was a difficult night for our boys. The first half of the first game was closely contested but Kirkella eventually took a 2-0 victory. Our second game against Lyall Marsden was even harder but the boys worked hard and made improvements. Sadly, this match finished 4-0. In the final group game, our boys scored their first goals courtesy of Alfie Maskell and Ewan Millet, and went on to win the game. Unfortunately it was too little, too late; our team didn’t progress to the semi finals.
This was a very hard lesson for our team to learn having found goal scoring easy in previous competition. But with the Y6 and Y5 five-aside competitions looming, more goals are sure to follow. Chin up and well done!
(L-R): Harry M (c), Charlie B, Alfie M, Matthew S, Vinnie H, James C, Nico A & Ewan M.
Mr. Arridge reading results: 3rd in our group.
Plenty of family support: Alfie Maskell and his cousin Noah.
We have had a really exciting start to our new topic – ‘Were the Vikings really vicious?’
Today we worked together to design and create authentic-looking Viking shields. We learnt about what they would be made from and how they would be used. The completed shields have now been added to our very own long boat in the pod! Great work!
After finishing third in their qualifying tournament, our team of Y6 boys attended the Hull Active Schools timed badminton finals yesterday afternoon.
The competition was incredibly high and our boys have worked hard in practises between competitions. Eventually they finished seventh but had an excellent time regardless. They used this as an opportunity to improve and did a fantastic job of representing the school.
Well done boys!
(L-R): Oliver H, Ewan M, Harry N, Callum D & Harry M.
Miss Stainton’s class have been working really hard over the past few lessons creating diary entries from a character’s perspective. We have watched the BBC Christmas advert and used it to inspire our work. We have really got the hang of writing in an informal tone. Well done!
We have been exploring the different Aztec gods within our topic lessons and have recently designed our own! We had to think carefully about what their powers would be and how the Aztec people could keep them happy. We then drew pictures and labelled them as we used our imagination to think about their appearance. Super work Miss Stainton’s class!
