This week Year 6 are writing instructions and as a hook into our writing lesson, we made our own Harry Potter potions. We watched a short clip of the film and then designed our own recipe and created it from a selection of gruesome ingredients. This enabled the children to plan their instructions ready to write tomorrow. You can see the video below.
As part of our literacy writing work, the children have been writing their own version of the TV show ‘Most Haunted’.
A few weeks ago researched the alleged ‘ghostly encounters’ at Smithills Hall and then wrote reports about what we had discovered. Today we visited Smithills Hall to film our reports so that we can produce our videos during our ICT lessons.
The videos will be appearing on this blog over the coming weeks but you can see some of the pictures below:
Today Year 6 took part in the Crucial Crew workshop in Bolton which involved talks and activities from the Police, Bolton Road Safety Team, Bolton Lad’s and Girl’s Club and also first aiders.
The children received some fantastic ‘life skills’ advice and thoroughly enjoyed the workshops!

Today we began our work on persuasive writing in Year 6 with a trip to our local park. We explored the facilities and assessed the condition / suitability of the equipment. Following this trip, we will now write letters to persuade the local council to make improvements to the park. You can see the pictures below:
