Art Gallery Trip 23/11/21

We had a wonderful visit to Leeds Art Gallery where we worked as film critics: watching I Want My Crown by Bruce McLean and trying out our ideas about the film and particularly thinking about the movements that Bruce McLean does in the film.

National Holocaust Centre Day 22/11/21

We had a whole day visit from The National Holocaust Centre, learning about the real life experiences of Jewish children in Nazi Germany and listening to first-hand accounts of Holocaust survivors.

Art Gallery project

We spent some time thinking about our chosen film: I Want my Crown By Bruce McLean. Together we thought of six questions that we would like to ask the film maker.

Art Gallery project - Autumn term

We are invited by Leeds Art Gallery to take part in a project called Kids as Critics which is running alongside Radical Reels: a celebration of film at the Art Gallery. We will be working with independent film maker and artist, Michael Crowe, who is based in London and there will be an opportunity for us to visit the Art Gallery towards the end of November. We started by sending Michael and Leeds Art Gallery some videos of us talking about our favourite films.


This term, our Science topic is Electricity. We have been investigating what happens to the brightness of a bulb when we increase the voltage of the batteries in the circuit.

Class 6 Residential at Herd Farm (11.10.21 to 13.10.21)
The whole class had an absolutely amazing time at Herd Farm in the countryside outside Leeds. 
We challenged ourselves with the Giant Swing, the Double Zip Line, the Obstacle Course, Archery,  a Night Hike, Orienteering and the Washing Up. 
We were able to relax in the huge lounge and games room (which was the venue for a karaoke session and pool competition on our last night) or play ball games outside. We ate lots of delicious meals together (and had bedtime buns and hot chocolate) in the dining room.
All the lovely staff at Herd Farm were full of praise for the children. The lucky Stanningley staff who got to go too were very proud of Class 6.

Science - Autumn 1

We are learning how species evolve to maximise their survival in a given environment. We used a variety of tweezers and chopsticks to pick up seeds and investigated how the shape of the implement affected how many seeds we could pick up in a given amount of time. We linked this investigation to our knowledge of how some species of birds' beaks have adapted to allow them to access a particular food source in their environment.
