Year 6 - Eagles - Slime!

This week, Eagles have been trialling a slime recipe for their stall at the Christmas Fayre. We have written a detailed set of instructions to share with our friends and families and to keep the slime craze alive! We have also thought of different ways to improve our recipe to create Woodthorpe's ultimate slime!

Year 6 - Hawks and Eagles - Crime scene investigation

On Tuesday morning, Year 6 were taken by surprise when they discovered a crime scene. They took on the role as detectives to try to solve the murder mystery.


Year 6 - Eagles - International Peace Day

Eagles had a great afternoon celebrating International Peace Day on Friday 21st September. We discussed the benefits of living in a peaceful world and why this is desirable, but not always achievable. We then had a go at designing our own symbols for World Peace.

We had an amazing day at York University, where we participated in three engaging workshops: code cracking, nursing and DNA sampling.

Hawks and Eagles thoroughly enjoyed their workshop run by YOYO. They discussed their feelings about their transition to secondary school and left feeling more confident and excited about their next chapter.

Year 6 - Hawks and Eagles - Robotics

Year 6 had lots of fun during the Robotics and Fusion workshops with York University. They programmed a robotic ball through a tablet to make it move according to their instruction and they carried out several exciting experiments: they used density cubes to test electrical currents and thermal conduction. This was a fun and interactive introduction to coding and physics.

Year 6 - Eagles & Hawks - Train Visit

Half of year 6 went on the train from York to Harrogate. We explored Harrogate train station and learnt about all of the different jobs available at Northern Rail. The most exciting part was making the train arrival announcements over the tannoy.

Year 6 - Eagles & Hawks - Green Apples

Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to York St John University where they learnt about all of the courses and opportunities available after leaving college. We explored the various aspects of university through playing games and taking a tour of the campus. We were amazed at the wide range of courses available and many of us are eager to join a society and become a student!

Year 6 - Hawks & Eagles - Buddhism

Year 6 had a wonderful morning learning about Buddhism. We re-enacted the story of Buddha, learnt about life as a monk and created a shrine with offerings.

Year 6 - Hawks - World culture day

Hawks and Eagles celebrated Brazil for World Culture Day.
Using paper, Year 6 designed and created their own carnival outfits and enjoyed parading them on a catwalk.

Year 6 - Eagles - Judo

Year 6 took part in a taster Judo session. We were a little nervous at first but when we discovered that Judo means, "gentle way", we felt much more confident. We learnt techniques that allow you to defend yourself in a safe and controlled way.
