Konflux Theatre Company
Year 6 had a fabulous day on Thursday (2nd Dec) when the Konflux Theatre Company came to spend the day with them. The children spent all day in a workshop with Becky, who trained them to perform a full performance. In just 4 hours, the children (having seen no script all day) were able to put on a show for the rest of the school at the end of the day...and they were AMAZING!! The show was all about internet safety. The children not only had a great time, but they learnt some very important information regarding how to keep safe online. PROTECT...OBJECT...REPORT...was the take away message.
Well done Year 6!

Rise Theatre Visit
'Our Common Home'
St Rose welcomed the wonderful Rise Theatre crew into school to put on a show for the children whilst learning all about how God's planet has been damaged and what we can do make a change. It was a fantastic day with loads of fun class based activities centered around climate change ending with a funny and insightful performance from our visitors.

Children in Need
A great way to end our 'Our Common Home' week with a chance to raise some money for Children in Need by dressing up as one of God's many wonderful creations. There were some fantastic costumes and Year 6 enjoyed showing them off in their little runway show in assembly.
Enjoying our new library...
Year 6 enjoyed our first weekly, timetabled library slot this week. It was wonderful to relax in our new refurbished library. The lighting and beanbags all worked together beautifully to create a really relaxing and perfect environment to sit back and just simply read for pleasure.
As our Science unit on Light came to an end, Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed putting their knowledge to good use by making their very own periscopes. This was no easy job! Intricate step by step instructions needed to be followed in order to ensure they were accurate and in good working order.
The children worked amazingly and conscientiously and were very happy with their end products.
Tchouckball in PE!
This week we had some visitors from Newman University in to work with Year 5 and 6 and help them with their tchouckball skills. Year 6 were brilliant and had lots of fun.
The internet and the World Wide Web
The children acted in role as different parts of the system that work together in order to produce a webpage that has been searched for. The user types in the webpage, the computer searches the web browser and the web browser contacts the DNS server to ask for the IP address. The DNS server sends the address back to the computer who sends it to the web server. The web server breaks it down into packages and sends them out to routers and back to the computer. All very complicated but Year 6 did great!
Exploring shadows in Science
The children devised a hypothesis: Do shadows always keep the same shape as the object that creates them?
They then tested the hypothesis using torches and classroom objects.
Our Art Topic -
20th Century Art - Modernism
Year 6 have spent the week looking at modern artists such as Picasso and studying abstract works, cubism and how modern art can have an impact on our social and political ideas. They finished the unit by designing and creating works of art themed 'All About Me' inspired by the artists we have studied.
Our visit to Mary Arden's Farm 09.09.21
Mary Arden's Farm, also known as Mary Arden's House, is the farmhouse of Mary Shakespeare, the mother of Elizabethan playwright William Shakespeare.
Year 6 had a fantastic time at the Farm. They explored the sight and took part in a number of interesting workshops such as, quill writing, making lavender bags, painting wall hangings, making sugared sweets along with meeting some farm animals along the way. As expected, the children were absolutely brilliant with their enthusiasm and their behaviour and the staff at the Farm were extremely impressed.
Well done Y6!
