Walk to school week 2022

By Community, Geography, House Jericho, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Children at St.Alban’s have ditched their cars this week, instead choosing to walk/cycle/jog to school! Not only is this better for the environment but also brilliant for both our physical and mental health. Well done to house Jericho for organising the week and thank you to all children who took part.

Here are some pictures taken from some students’ journeys to school….

Y6 Road Safety

By PSHE, Year 6

Y6 had a visitor to school to talk about Road Safety.  The children recapped on what had been previously learnt at Crucial Crew and related this to moving on to secondary school.

The children learned about the App What3Words and now understand that this is a very useful app for finding a persons location in an emergency.

Y6 Art Work

By Art, Year 6

This term, Y6 have been looking at printing in art.  They studied different artists that use printing to produce work and investigated ways to make patterns.

After this, they created their own patterns using pencil crayons or paint.  The children then did printing work of their own by using lino printing.  They needed to use a small square of lino and carved out a pattern.  They used paint to print repeated patterns.

Y6 Maths

Year 6 have been investigating units of measure.  They started out looking at length and measuring objects in the classroom and then they used weighing scales to measure the mass.

Reading scales and converting measures is a very important skill to have.

Y6 Local Walk

Year 6 enjoyed a local walk which including different parts of the curriculum.

Geography

Before the walk, the children had practised drawing sketch maps of the school.  For the walk, the children had looked at compass points and worked out where North was and then during the walk they continued to look at a compass and relate this to the map we were following.

History

The children learnt about different buildings around Wickersley, what they were used for and when they were built.

Sometimes, it’s just good to get out of the classroom and have fun.
