Class 6 Leavers Assembly

Well done to Class 6 for performing a wonderfully entertaining leavers assembly. The mixed talent show gave us a variety of singing, dancing, musical instruments, memories and comedy!
It is now time for you to take your next step in life and venture on to your new schools. We are all very proud of everything you have achieved whilst at Silkstone Primary and wish you lots of luck and success for the future.

Dragon Days

Well done to all of our KS2 children after delivering two fabulous performances of their end or year production, Dragon Days, to a packed school hall.

The Year 6 children have rehearsed tirelessly, learning their lines to perfect their starring roles in the play. The children acted with confidence and sang beautifully, not to mention the moments of comedy magic!  We are immensely proud of the dedication and enthusiasm shown by all of the children to make the show a great success! Perhaps we have some future stars in our midst?

Mount Kilimanjaro Exploration

Class 4 have been finding out about mountains this week in class. They located mountains in the UK using atlases and then focussed their attention on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The class looked at a website all about the mountain and found out some interesting facts… but they wanted to know what it was actually like to climb up the mountain!! Miss Felton contacted her brother, who lives in Australia, but has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro back in 2013. Class 4 got to work writing questions, which Miss Felton emailed to her brother. He then replied with some great answers which the children found interesting… including where he had to go to the toilet!! A huge thank you to David for giving us an insight into his time climbing the mountain and sending us some super pictures too.

Year 6 Treat Day

Our Class 6 leavers have enjoyed a treat day to celebrate the end of their final term at Silkstone Primary School. The children had a fantastic time swimming and bowling at Doncaster Dome, and also visited Pizza Hut for a wonderful buffet lunch! Everyone had an amazing day and we wish them good luck as they transition to secondary school

Fortem Engineering

Class 6 spent an exciting 3 days with Fortem Engineering Ltd, when M’s mum, brought the company into school to work with our pupils. The children were involved in various activities; making a marshmallow tower, constructing bird boxes and den building on the school playground.

The experience proved to be a huge success and gave everyone the opportunity to learn about the role of an engineering company and to use tools and equipment found in the construction industry.

Each Y6 pupil was presented with a certificate after completing the workshop, awarded for their teamwork during the programme. Well done Year 6!

Thank you to Mrs Garbutt and the Fortem team for organising the visit.
