Our biscuit topic!

Year six have been enjoying our new D.T topic all about biscuits! So far we have: researched what type of biscuits people like, looked at the history of biscuits, looked at different packaging, designed our own Christmas biscuit, designed the packing for our biscuits and had a go at making the biscuit box!

What has been your favourite part of the process so far?

Why is it so important to research what people would like before making the biscuit?

I hope you’re all excited to make the biscuits in the next two weeks! I know I am!

Light and How We See Things

Our science topic this half term is all about light and how we see things. In our science lesson last week we used prisms to investigate how we can see rainbows and how light is actually made up of 7 different colours (rather than being white, like we first thought). Can you remember which colours light is made up of? Can you remember which scientist discovered this?

Our new D.T topic!

Year Six have started their new design and technology topic which is to: conduct market research, design, create, make and sell a new brand of biscuits!

Today we took part in our first step – research! This meant we had to TRY SOME BISCUITS! We tried chocolate fingers, fruit biscuits, rich tea, custard creams, chocolate digestives and cheddar biscuits!

Which was your favourite?

Can you remember any of the words we used to describe the flavour and the texture of the biscuits?

Centre of Excellence!

Oxford Grove is a ‘Centre of Excellence’ school.

We recently maintained our status after assessors visited to have a look around. The assessors spoke to children and staff to find out about our inclusive school.

The report has now been shared with us all and we are so proud! The assessors think that our school is extremely well resourced with high quality teaching and learning materials so that pupils can access their learning.

We are proud to be part of the Oxford Grove family!

Hindu Temple visit !

Today, we visited our local Hindu temple. We learnt lots of different facts and was able to watch some people worship. We all listened really well and were very respectful. The Hindu temple was amazing to see with lots of different coloured lights, beautiful pictures and scenery. 

What did you learn from our visit today?

Smiley Reward!

For Oxford Grove’s reward this half term, the whole school took part in a Military Day! This meant we went outside to do team building challenges such as remodeling a cannon – just like they do in the army! This meant we had to use quick thinking and work together strategically to solve the puzzles.

We also had the amazing opportunity of going on the inflatables in the hall and racing against one another!

What a fantastic reward for a great half term, let’s make sure this half term is just as good!

Fire Safety!

Today we were visited by the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service. They gave us lots of information on how to keep safe on the run up to Bonfire night and throughout the year. 

We were taught how to ‘ STOP DROP AND ROLL’ if we were ever in danger linked to fire. This was a very informative assembly. 

What did you learn Year 6?
