This week’s key skills is on Yammer – it is also on the blogs (as you can see!) for those who cannot access Yammer at home. If there is no access to either, complete paper-based and Mr Prosser will put it online next week. Part 1 is still achievable as everyone received a paper-copy of the key skills.
Next week we are making our moon buggies as part of our Space/Design Technology project!
1) Therefore, at home we want you to collate any materials that you can think of that you could donate to the project either for your own use or a different group’s. Some examples are as such:
– Yoghurt pots
– Plastic bottles
Please understand that due to glue and other materials, non-disposable materials (such as Lego) may not be able to be sent home at the end of the project.
2) There are examples of motors being used in mini-cars shared below; they show how they can be made. Watch these and have a think how you could create your own. Comment with a reply: which one do you think was the best? Which one would you prefer to use? How could you change the model someone else has used in the video? Ideally reply on Yammer – but replying here is fine.
Again, if the videos are not accessible at home, we will sort this out next week.
Year six were welcomed into the prayer room, at Weston Favell Primary school, which is a space where you can think about your beliefs and have time to reflect. It gave everyone a chance to stop and think about others and their place in the world.
There are many different ways to engage in prayer; everyone felt relaxed and used the areas, independently, to think about: their hopes and dreams, changes ahead, forgiving others, letting go of worries, positive images and so much more. It was a positive experience for all – here are a few of the children’s comments:
It is therapeutic.
I like how it is calming.
It made me feel different about people that have difficult times in the world.
The empty chair has helped me with memories of my grandparents.
The bubbles helped with my worries. I could feel them lifting from my mind.
It made me feel sad and positive.
I enjoyed the tents and using the headphones; the guidance was useful.
Year six, please post comments about your experience of the prayer room. What did you find helpful? How did it make you feel? What would be useful to have in our school?
