This was a momentous day for Year 6. The children took part in their graduation ceremony and were very emotional and proud when telling of their fond memories of the times at St Clement’s.
We moved swiftly onto our class production ‘ Robin and the Nechells Hoodies’ It was a super performance with all the children enjoying their new found acting roles. The children sung beautifully too and the parents were very impressed.
Well done Year 6, you were a credit to yourselves ,the staff and your family. We wish you every success in your Secondary Schools.
The children have spent all term collecting ‘Cosmic Card’ stamps by finishing their day in gold, on the classroom rocket, and by following the expectations of the Academy. The children, with the most stamps – from each class, were awarded with a morning at Star City. KS1 went to Monster Mayhem and McDonalds, whist KS2 went to Mini Golf and KFC. The children then had the chance to play in the park before coming back to school. At St. Clement’s Academy we are very proud of the children’s achievements – well done!
During this final week of the year, Year 3 have been working hard with their DT (Design Technology) lessons in order to explore, design and make their own board games.
Year 3 worked collaboratively to play a range of existing maths games to find out what made a good game and to generate ideas. Afterwards, most children worked with a partner to design and then make their games.
Year 3 then played their games with Year 4 who gave them feedback on what they enjoyed and how they could improve their games.
In science, Year 5 were given a challenge. Children had a range of mysterious materials
and had to investigate them and classify them. They began by making drawings of the materials and looking at their hardness and transparency. They then investigated which materials were magnetic and which conducted electricity before studying a map of Alchemy Island and labelling where they thought the mysterious materials could be found.
Year 4 have been learning about plastic pollution that is destroying our seas and oceans. We researched how plastic is becoming a huge problem all over the world and how it is killing innocent sea creatures. Using out new knowledge we have written newspaper reports to explain the growing problem and how people can help to stop plastic pollution!
