Townley Grammar Science Visit - April 2024

Today our Year 6 class were lucky enough to partake in a workshop facilitated by staff and students from Townley Grammar School where we delved into the intricacies of the human heart and circulatory system. The visit was designed to provide an immersive learning experience, combining hands-on activities with interactive demonstrations to deepen the students' understanding of these vital biological processes.

One highlight of the visit was when students got to examine a real heart, allowing them to observe the chambers, valves, and intricate network of blood vessels up close. Guided by the knowledgeable students and teacher, the children were encouraged to ask questions and explore the inner workings of the heart. Another engaging activity involved a simulated journey through the circulatory system.

The visit concluded with a Q&A session where students could reflect on what they had learned and ask clarifying questions. Many expressed newfound fascination with human biology and a deeper appreciation for the intricate systems that sustain life.

Overall, the science visit from Townley was a resounding success, blending education with excitement to inspire a new generation of budding scientists and health enthusiasts. By engaging students in hands-on learning experiences and interactive demonstrations, the visit left a lasting impact, fostering curiosity and understanding of the marvels of the human body. A big thank you to everyone who made it possible.

STEM Workshop

On Thursday Year 6 were visited by Obi and Tina from Network Rail who facilitated a STEM workshop with us. It was an insightful experience where we were able to learn about all their different projects; old, new and future, and the importance of their work for the railway system in the United Kingdom. The children were also keen to learn about all the different positions available at Network Rail and even got a chance to put their skills to use and create their own structure as a group.

Mini Vinnies

On Tuesday 15th of October Alec from the St Vincent de Paul Society came to Our Lady of Grace to share with us the wonderful work of Minnie Vinnies.

Year 6 participated in an eye opening workshop where they explored first-hand the perils and difficulties of being homeless. This was followed by a whole school assembly where we learnt about what Minnie Vinnies stand for and their mission in the local community. 

Minnie Vinnies is the youth based sub-division of St Vincent de Paul who..."Meeting once a week or fortnightly either during lunchtimes or after school, Mini Vinnies members gather and pray together in their schools, to talk about those around them who need our help, and think of ways they can help those people"

Here's what Alec had to say about his visit:

Wonderful! The class were very well behaved and made two excellent shelters. It was also very clear when talking to the children that you have maintained a good Catholic ethos. I know you will do exceptionally well with the Mini Vinnies. I can't wait to hear about your future projects.

KPMG Global Cyber Day

On 8th October, Year 6 had the pleasure of Ann and Ben from KPMG coming in to talk to us about Cyber Safety. It was an interesting workshop with lots of new information and reminders on keeping safe when online. The children were thoroughly engaged throughout and enjoyed contributing their ideas and experiences such as changing passwords every few months and ensuring your passwords are unique and do not contain personal information such as your date of birth.
