"Enjoying Success"

6JB

PE Trip to OWS

On Tuesday 5th October, year six visited Oldbury Wells school to take part in a Health and Wellbeing workshop. They were split into two groups and completed two different activities – one science and one fitness related. In the science session, the children tested different foods for starch, sugar and fat. It was really important that they wore safety goggles and followed the rules of the lab. In the physical session, they completed circuit exercises and practised important skills such as running, throwing, dribbling and shooting. For a healthy snack at playtime, they sampled a variety of toppings on natural yoghurt and took part in a healthy eating quiz. They had lots of fun and are looking forward to visiting again 😊 Thank you Oldbury Wells!

Maths

In maths we have been practising estimating on a number line, before moving onto rounding .We played a game where we had to correctly match a number card to a place on the number line, verbally explaining why we had chosen to place it there to the rest of the group.

In maths, we enjoy solving problems, even when they’re tricky!

This is an artificial method of asexual reproduction.
