British Science Week 2022

For British Science Week this year, we focused on the theme of Growth and had two key questions:

What type of environment helps mould to grow?

What type of food does mould grow best on?

We started off by researching information about mould so we knew what caused mould and what to look out for. We used this information to create brilliant posters!

We then researched what mould looked like on different food types so that we knew which food type would be the easiest to spot mould growing on it!

We then wrote up a mini investigation into which environment affected the growth of mould the most. We left pieces of bread in the cupboard, fridge, freezer, in a damp bag and by the window to see which environment caused the most amount of mould. We found that the damp bag had the best result and we then used this finding throughout the rest of our investigation!

Using the damp bag environment, we then decided on which food type to use in our own investigation. We decided on using a nectarine as we decided the moisture in the fruit would also help the mould to grow. 

Using what we already found out, we then carried out a pattern seeking investigation where we used another food type but we put multiple items in a bag to see if this affected the amount of mould which grew.

Using this information, we then produced a poster on how we can avoid mould growing on food!

We are going to leave these investigations for a week now so that we can get the most accurate results!

We then completed our results table for all of our investigations over the week and wrote our conclusion! We very clearly found out that a damp bag on the radiator was the best environment for mould to grow at a rapid rate! We also found out that having multiple food items together also caused more mould to grow!

Well done Year 6! A super Science week!

World Book Day 2022

On Friday 4th March, we celebrated World Book Day!

We came to school dressed as our favourite book characters and we all looked fantastic!

Throughout the day, we all worked on the same book: Mirror by Jeannie Baker. 

It is a story which explains the lives of two young boys who live in different countries, Australia and Morocco. The story shows clear differences between their two lives but also the numerous similarities that they both share within their family and community. 

We started off with a quiz where we identified which aspects belong to either Australia or Morocco. 

We then produced maps of the country within the outline of the country which looked brilliant!

This year, we were all celebrating 25 years of World Book Day and we celebrated it here at Reddal Hill with a 25 Book Treasure Hunt!

The children all ran around the playground to search for the different book covers that were hidden all around! They had a brilliant time hunting them all down!

The winners of the treasure hunt were Cerys and Dua who found an amazing 21/25 books!

Well done girls!

We then finished the day with a certificate for the most creative costume!

Well done Latina! You looked absolutely amazing as the Mad Hatter!

On Friday 3rd December, we had a discussion about PANTS. We started off by completing a jigsaw of different pants to find the different reasons as to why it was so important.
We discussed the acronym for PANTS and how important it is to understand that we need to keep our private parts private and that we need to speak to a trusted adult if we feel worried about anything. 

We then produced our own pair of PANTS to remind us of the acronym. 

Well done Year 6!

Children in Need

On Friday 19th November, we all came to school in our 'Dress Up' outfits to celebrate and raise money for Children in Need!

We then had a discussion about 'One Kind Word' and spoke about the different types of bullying that could happen. We then created posters based on the acronym of STOP! to highlight the importance of anti-bullying and who we can speak to if we need to. 

Well done Year 6; you produced amazing posters!

Talk Money Week

In our Maths lesson on Friday 12th November, we discussed money management by looking into online scams and how we can best manage our money in a savings account. 

We started off by discussing genuine and fraudulent companies. We role played scenarios where children had to persuade the rest of the class as to if they were a genuine company or not by asking relevant questions such as if they had a registered charity number and if they needed any personal details. 

We then moved on to discussing what we would buy for £60 and if we saved it, what type of bank account, we could put it into so that we would get the best return on our money. 

We finished the lesson by understanding that sometimes, it is best to save some of our money for a 'rainy day!'

Well done Year 6; a super lesson on money management!


On Tuesday 9th November, DECCA came into our classrooms to talk to us about the effects of alcohol and drugs. 

We spoke about alcohol, the different types, the nicknames used for it and the detrimental impacts that too much of it would have on our body. We also had a go at using beer goggles to see how alcohol affects our vision and brain by completing Maths questions and lock activities. 

We then moved on to discussing cannabis and the short term and long term effects on what this does to our body. 

A fantastic session Year 6 and thank you to DECCA too!


Remembrance Day

In our English lessons this week, we have been writing our own version of 'In Flanders Fields' to remember the brave soldiers who lost their lives during the war.
