PE - Military Session 1
Year 5 and 6 started their first session with 'The School Of Military' by getting to know their instructors and their previous roles in the army. They informed us on all the different roles that are available.
Some of the children ended up outside, enduring press-ups, squats, lunge walks and running. We are really looking forward to the next session!

A few pictures from our fantastic trip to Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. We had a brilliant day learning about how light travels as part of our science topic and the children also got the chance to explore the Experiment Zone and study many RAF planes in the history zone.
Here are some pictures from the Daily Delph Side news room. The children have been writing articles about Donald Trump's election to become president of the U.S.A and today was deadline day! All articles had to be typed, edited and printed before 12:00pm and handed to the Chief Editor (Mr Holding) or face being sacked! Thankfully, all journalists made the deadline and it was worth the hard work as you can see from some of the articles below.
Creating and sharing our Anti-Bullying All Star Team for Year 5.
During Remembrance week our Year 6 class were given the challenge and responsibility of learning all about the Holocaust. Throughout the week the children demonstrated a maturity beyond their years as they uncovered one of the most shocking events in history. As their teacher I was immensely proud that children of such a young age were able to not just learn dates and events from the holocaust, but go beyond this and analyse the damage the Holocaust caused around the world and also learn about the Jewish religion and the fight to survive. Our week ended with a fantastic piece of art produced by everyone. The artwork below symbolises how life began again for 9 survivors after the Holocaust.
"Out of pain and sadness came a deep appreciation of life and the desire to reclaim their future. They shared their memories and asked that we will never forget. We will never forget".
