J6 would like to catch you up on a few of the exciting things we have been doing over the past few weeks.
Firstly, we have been learning all about the English Civil War and how it started. We have learnt about the argument between Charles I and Parliament that lead to the Civil War, through the capture of the King and his execution. But we didn’t stop there, we then found out that Oliver Cromwell took over the country as Lord Protector of England. Did you know he banned sports, colourful clothes and CHRISTMAS? We are now looking forwards to learning all about Charles II and his rule, we hope it goes better than it did for his dad!
We have also been on an exciting trip to the Rainforest Roadshow, that was hosted by Flixton Girls’ School. We hear all about some of the amazing and exciting creatures that live there. We got up-close and personal with some giant creepy crawlies including a scorpion and a bird eating spider!
On Friday 24th November we were very lucky to be able to take part in a golf taster sessions with a golf player from a local club. Even though it was a bit chilly we took to the playground with lots of enthusiasm and really enjoyed our session. We are looking forward to doing more super activities like this!

Wow! What a busy and fun time we have had in year 5 over the last few weeks. We have had amazing fun this afternoon with a very strange fluid – if we left it alone or moved it gently it was like water but when we grabbed it, rolled it or smacked it, it turned into a solid! It is called a non-Newtonian liquid – it is FANTASTIC!
