On the 30th April the mental health charity 'If U Care Share' visited Brighton Avenue. The focus of the workshop was to raise awareness of mental health and how and who to share any concerns with.Year 6 were very proactive within the session.
On Thursday 4th April 2019 Key Stage 2 children and their parents were treat to some E-safety training. As part of this training, they were shown how to use some of the technology available ( two examples being Green Screen and Drones). Children were also reminded of personal information which shouldn't be disclosed to anyone online.
We Are Geographers!
On Friday, we went into our local community to investigate a wide range of geographical investigations. The children were asked to think of how they could answer their own questions including: 'Is there enough green space in Bensham?' and 'What are the different land-uses in our area?'.
The children were extremely well-behaved on our walk and carried out some very meaningful research. We look forward to seeing their presentations next week!
On Tuesday 12th March Year 6B were introduced to combat training where they were shown various ways to utilise combat training as a way of keeping fit.
Science Museum Experience
On Tuesday 5th March both Year 6 classes had the pleasure of visiting the Science Museum near Gallowgate.Whilst there, they had the opportunity to investigate the history of Newcastle and were given a challenge to research information about local inventors.
Judo Taster Session
Year 6B had the pleasure of taking part in a judo taster session on Tuesday 12th February. They had the utmost amount of fun frantically grappling and attempting to throw each other!!
6B visited Gateshead Library and discussed their favourite books to read. They were given the task of finding books by genre, books with a certain amount of pages, books by specific authors and then recording their results.
On Tuesday 15th January, Year 6 went back in time to discover what life would have been like for them 150 years ago during the Victorian era. The children were made to work in a rope factory, sorting lengths of rope without breaking any of the many many rules. Once they had finished, each group learned how much money they would have earned and if it was enough to feed their families.
Away from the factory, we enjoyed tram rides, visits to the sweet shop and bakery as well as completing a challenging Victorian themed treasure hunt!
On Tuesday morning, Year 6 welcomed David from the Royal National Lifeboat Institute who shared a wide range of information about who the RNLI are and the crucial role they play in keeping us safe in the water. We discovered that the RNLI has been running for over 200 years and we hope they keep going for much much longer! Thank you David!!!
