The next tallest tower challenge was simply 20 sheets of A4 paper, no tape or glue allowed.
Look what Ewan won!
I am writing to congratulate Ewan Welsh in his fantastic drawing for the Dream Treehouse Competition! We had many fantastic entries this year and it was very tough to pick the top three. We wanted to do something very special with Ewans’s as he just missed out on third place but it was too good not to have a prize. Therefore we would love to give Ewan a £50 voucher still but also use his drawing for our Christmas cards 2017!
Ewan’s hard effort has also meant that his school also receives £100 too!
We would love to be able to have a photo for the prize giving to both him and his school so we would need permission from a parent or guardian for this.
Congratulations again and I look forward to hearing from you.

There was much excitement in year 6 today when we managed to get a series of lemons to light a diode! This was our second attempt which made the success even more exciting!
Monday 5th December - Today, we put Goldilocks on trial ,thanks to the BPP Law students. I'm sure you can work out who Goldilocks is, but can you work out who the policeman is?
Congratulations to our new school council members.
We all enjoyed listening to their presentations.
Many thanks to Kerry Baker, Engineering Liaison Officer for Engineering at Leeds University and Shauni Sanderson for today's workshop.
The class explored engineering as it related to a product designed and manufactured in Leeds, made their own mock-product to take home, and worked in teams to build a GIANT tetrahedron structure.
The activities were designed to challenge pupils to communicate, practice, test and create using real life examples of engineering practices and processes.
The British Red Cross
Courtlin from The British Red Cross has been visiting year 6 for a series of workshops.
The workshops aim to help children:
> explore their assumptions about terms such as refugee, migrant and asylum seeker
> understand why someone might have to flee their home and empathise with people arriving in a new place
> provoke discussions and critical thinking about the harmful effects of stigmatising behaviour
> consider how their actions could help refugees, migrants and asylum seekers feel more welcome.
Visit From Stuart McGill - Ralph Thoresby High School
Stuart McGill visited year 6 to talk to them all about Ralph Thoresby and its wonderful facilities. The class all listened really well and had some very interesting questions.
Our RE topic this half term is Sikhism, we have already learnt a great deal and have a better understanding of what it means to be a Sikh.
