Scarlet Year 6

Welcome to Scarlet Class - Year 6

 

Daily Mile Event 17th May 2019

With the SATS tests over, Scarlet Class started the day with their participation in the Sefton School’s Daily Mile Celebration! With one of the questions from the Maths Reasoning Test in mind, Year 6 took on the task of laying out, measuring the course and converting the metres into miles! With their 4 laps of 402m complete, the reward of a Bacon Butty awaited the runners!

Career Carousel - 8th May 2019

Career Carousel - 8th May 2019 1

As part of our on-going careers and raising aspirations work, this afternoon Scarlet Class welcomed representatives from a range of different workplaces including: Merseyside Ambulance and Paramedic Service, The Post Office, Glenville Walker Legal Services, The Sovini Group Property Management, The Walton Centre Rehabilitation Team,  and Liverpool City College.  

 

The children worked in small groups and met with each professional in turn asking questions and learning from each individual all about the pathway they have followed from their time in school to the present day. The visiting professionals were able to talk about their current role as well as all the key milestones that have happened during their respective careers. The children really enjoyed listening to thevery different experiences and learning the top tips for finding a rewarding career.

 

Amongst the common themes to emerge in all of the discussions was the need to develop good communication skills and the ability to problem-solve. All the professionals were able to highlight for the children the many transferable skills they gained during their time in school and that have been vital in their changing and progressing careers. 

 

Needless to say, all the professionals involved, commented upon the engagement, maturity and interest shown by all the children.

As part of our careers and raising aspirations work, Year 6 will be participating in a Career Carousel with our friends at Positive Footprints and Primary Futures. Mr Hird is looking for anyone who has a career they enjoy and who might be willing to come into school and answer the children’s questions. It is really important that our children should have aspirations and dreams for their future as this gives the work of nurturing their talents and developing their employability skills real meaning and purpose and provides them with that essential motivation to work hard.  The event itself is on the afternoon of Wednesday 8th May 2019 and anyone with a contact should let Mr Hird know.

Scarlet Class have been studying the life and works of Alberto Giacometti who was a Swiss sculptor, painter, draftsman and printmaker. Beginning in 1922, he lived and worked mainly in Paris but regularly visited his hometown Borgonovo to see his family and work on his art. Giacometti was one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. After their research and design work the children are enjoying getting their hands dirty (and the desks and the floor...)

After trying their hand at a number of savoury dishes in recent weeks, including Super Scouse, today was the opportunity to make some sweet (but fairly healthy) treats. Tasty Oatie Cookies with raisins were on the menu. The most important piece of equipment was the weighing scales as precision with the ingredients makes for crunchier cookies! Sugar, Oats, Honey, Raisins and Butter were the key ingredients and the top tip was to try and make all the cookies the same size so that they cook in the same amount of time.

Sweet and tasty treats are the order of the day!

RomeoRomeoWherefore art thou Romeo?

The world famous story of the two young, star-crossed lovers was brought to life this afternoon for all our children in Key Stage 2. The children watched, spell bound, as with minimal set and props and simple costume, Emily, Josh and Peter from the Manchester Actors Company told the tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet. The children experienced the full range of emotions as they cringed at the kissing, gasped at the the stabbings and gazed in silence as the poison did its worst!

The quality of the performances were reflected in the questions the children asked after the play, from technical questions around set and props, to the difficulty in learning lines and rehearsing the set and costume changes. The Shakespearian language was no barrier, as the children gained a clear sense of the story, questioning the actions and motivations of the various characters and a genuine disbelief a how such a tragic story could unfold in just such a short space of time!

It is such an important opportunity for the children to see the language of Shakespeare lifted from the page and brought to life through performance.

The light and sound meters in the iPad have been invaluable for measuring the effects! We will be using a spreadsheet to present and analyse the data.

Friday 15th February 

On a lovely sunny winters morning a group of Year 5 and 6 children, went to the Sefton Swimming Gala at Crosby Leisure Centre. They were a credit to the school with their effort and behaviour always striving to do their best. A special mention goes to the 4 boys who reached the Freestyle Relay Final, a very good effort indeed.
