Science With Year 6 Wollaton Hall

Science With Year 6 Wollaton Hall

As part of our science curriculum, the children in Year 6 were invited to an event at Wollaton Hall called ‘After Dinner Nap – Food and Sleep’. The children took part in two workshops: one with a professor from the University of Nottingham based on the world’s most common bird, the chicken; the other, a tour of Wollaton Hall with its curator, looking at the many species of animals on display and learning about their sleep patterns. We learnt many fascinating facts about animals and birds of all kinds and it proved to be a highly interesting and educational experience. The museum are hoping to set up a Citizen’s Science research project into sleep as a result of this event.

Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of welcoming two German exchange students from Bilborough College. They stayed with us for three days engaging the children and introducing them to German life and culture. Our pupils really enjoyed meeting these young people and learning about what it is like to be a young person in Germany today.

As we settle in for night 2 at Kingswood, we have shared our favourite moments. So far highlights include: raft building, zip wire and archery (oh and of course the food). We are looking forward to the climbing wall tomorrow. We have had lovely weather for the most part and are all happy and healthy. We will continue to send regular messages through marvellousme. We are looking forward to seeing you all Friday.

Football Match Staff  vs Pupils July 2017

Football Match Staff vs Pupils July 2017

The muggy weather on Wednesday morning didn’t alter any spirits at the latest pupils v teachers football game at Middleton Primary School. As the players took to their positions on the pitch, pupils lined up at the sides eager to cheer on their peers, or for some , their favourite teachers. The adults were sure to face stiff competition but they never expected such a skillful display from the children.The final score doesn’t need any comment: 3 – 1.Following this crushing defeat to the Year 6/5 squad , the teachers have decided to be back with a vengeance next year.
