Year 6 recently attended Carr Hill High School to take part in a science lesson. As well as familiarising themselves with the school, it was a useful opportunity to find out about science in high school.
The children were presented with 2 challenges. The first being to extract salt from rock…
We have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in class and we read about Charlie's ride in the glass lift.
There were 5000 different rooms in Mr Wonka's factory that could be reached by using the lift. We all chose a room we'd like to visit and drew what we imagined would be inside…
Year 3 enjoyed their visit to the Hindu Temple in Preston on Tuesday. They saw statues of the various representations of the Hindu God, including Rama, Krishna and Ganesha. They also were able to do some quiet meditation before singing a song and using musical instruments to accompany.
We had a quick change of plan on Friday as the previously gorgeous weather of the week gave way to rain! Undeterred our party moved to the hall and we had a fab time playing badmington, Twister, Limbo, Hula Hoops and gymnastics! What a great way to end the week!
Year 6 have enjoyed their afternoon of cricket with Danny!
Year 4 had a lovely day on their recent visit to the River Ribble at Brockhole in Preston.

At the end of the topic, we had a go at playing a piece…

On Wednesday 8th March we went on a spring walk to the woods. It was quite muddy! We noticed lots of buds growing on the trees and bushes. We saw lots of daffodil and crocuses and a few snowdrops. The woods looked beautiful with so many spring flowers!
Year 6 really got onto the spirit of World Book Day! Have a look at the range of characters we became!
" I think World Book Day is a really good idea because it encourages children to think about their favourite characters in books and they can pretend to be that character for a…
Year 6 children have been practising this week for the Dance Spectacular at Carr Hill High School on Friday evening.
