First Aid

The Deer class launched Careers Week with a course in First Aid, delivered by St John's Ambulance. 

Our first lesson was DRS ABC: D: Danger; R: Response; S: Shout; A: Airway; B: Breathing; C: Circulation.

Following on from this, we learnt how to put someone into the recovery position, how to deal with someone suffering from an asthma attack and how to help someone if they were choking. What fantastic first aiders we now have!

Father's Day Cards

For their Father's Day cards, Year 6 explored the art of photography and digital editing. They first learnt about the different camera angles and lighting, before taking their photographs in our inspiring sculpture garden. Then, back on the laptops and iPads, the children applied their digital editing skills in order to change their images. Here are some of our final pieces- we hope the dads, uncles and granddads enjoyed them!

 

Earthly Oranges

After watching an educational BBC video, we recreated the Earth's crust using oranges! This helped us to understand that the Earth is made up of tectonic plates- 7 of them being major. We then progressed to understanding how the movement of the plates can lead to earthquakes and volcanoes.

Year 6 London Residential

Year 6 have returned from a fantastic residential to London. Over our 3 days in the capital, the children experienced many new, cultural experiences, which included visits to the Houses of Parliament, the Harry Potter Studios, the Lyceum Theatre to see The Lion King, the Natural History Museum and visiting Big Ben (and many others famous landmarks). So much was learnt over the residential and many memories have been made; it was especially nice to be able to share the experience with St Thomas' Year 6 children too. The whole trip was extremely enjoyable and a pleasure to be part of- well done Deer class!

The Deer class hit the road!

Year 6 have spent most of Monday and Tuesday on their bicycles. They practised their skills first on the playground before progressing onto the roads. This is where they learnt how to mount their bike safely, pass cars, complete U-turns and signal at junctions. The instructors commented on how outstanding the children were- as always, they are a credit to our school! All children passed the Bikeability course successfully, well done.
