Welcome to Chimps.
Chimps (6C) are taught by Mr Payne and supported by Mrs Stableford.
In the Summer term, we are going to be incredibly busy! Starting with our SATs tests in May, then going on to finish producing our writing portfolios, develop our acting skills in preparing for our end of year musical extravaganza 'Shakespeare Rocks', spending a day at our new high schools and also our residential trip to Robinwood in Wrexham.
As well as all that, we are going to learn about the ill-fated voyage of the RMS Titanic in our wider curriculum work.
Clitheroe Castle trip
We went to Clitheroe in Late February to support our learning about the events of 1066. We had a great day handling weapons and armour, acting out the battles of that year and learning all about the construction of motte and bailey castles.
Science Week 11th-15th February 2019
After our visit from Adrian Bowden and his fantastic science show, we set about finding out more about circuits. We learnt how to represent circuits using symbols - so that they could be understood by anyone - then investigated the effect of adding extra bulbs / cells to a simple circuit and explored the benefits of parallel vs series circuits. Using this knowledge we then worked on designing and building a burglar alarm with both light and sound, that could still work if one of the components failed, and added a home-made pressure pad switch.
Recently we have used 'Garage band' to create our own musical compositions inspired by British musicians. We then used the ipads to script and shoot our own music videos making sure that we considered the different types of shots that we could use.
