Mathematical Brain Teaser from Golborne High School

I wonder if anyone from year 6 can answer this puzzling question? 

Prizes will be awarded each Monday to entries selected at random from the solutions received. Bonus prizes will also be available for children who show their reasoning and methods, or who present their solution in an interesting way. 

Good luck Year 6! Remember – you’ve got to be in it to win it!


Learning next week…

On Monday, Year 6 will be completing their ESB examinations – they’ve all put so much effort into their work and I’m sure they’ll show just how wonderful they all are!

Next week will be continue to rehearse our end of year production of ‘Bugsy Malone’. The children and Mrs Lockwood are working hard and we can’t wait for you all to see it on the 13th of July!

We will also be completing an exciting Design Technology project with Mr Bradley next week. All we know is that it has something to do with milk bottle tops… Needless to say, we’ve been collecting them all week and are eager to find out what we’ll be making with them. Watch this space!

Learning next week…

Another busy week in year 6 is ahead of us! 

The children will be continuing to work on their ESB presentations and their end of year production of ‘Bugsy Malone’.  Both are coming on well and the children have certainly put a lot of time and effort into them.  

On Monday, our class will be visiting Golborne High School for an ICT lesson with Mrs Nicholas. 

Some children from Year 6 will be completing their ‘Bikeability’ training on Wednesday and Thursday. They will be learning about how to cycle safely, as well as gaining practical skills and confidence on the road. Photographs to follow…

Over the Line – Year 6 cast their vote!

Over the past few days, Year 6 have been reading the story ‘Over the Line’ by Tom Palmer. For the duration of the 2016 Euros, Tom Palmer is publishing a new chapter of this story daily via the Literacy Trust website. We’ve only read 4 chapters so far but we’re absolutely loving it! 

Today, we were asked to vote on whether the main character, Khalid, should be allowed to go on his school trip to France or if he needed to remain at home.  Our class voted for him to ‘leave’ with a vast majority – we wonder what the rest of the schools reading this will vote for?

We can’t wait to find out tomorrow!


A Visit from Blue Cross for Pets 

Year 5 and Year 6 had a visit today from Paul who works for the charity ‘Blue Cross for Pets’. 

He told us all about the importance of responsible pet ownership, as well as how we can stay safe around pets (in particular dogs). 

The whole session was so informative and we all certainly found out a lot of important information! 

Learning next week…

Y6 have been working hard on their ESB presentations and will continue to finalise them next week.  We certainly have a variety of themes: rugby, football, horse riding, gaming, the recorder and the ‘Race for Life’ to name a few! 

Our end of year production of ‘Bugsy Malone’ is going well so far… there’s still a lot of work to do though over the next few weeks! If anyone has any trilby hats or suit jackets for the children that we could use, they’d be much appreciated. 

Some children will be visiting their high school for a day, or afternoon, next week – I’m sure they’ll all enjoy their transition days!
