Goodbye Year 6!!!

Pennycross Has Talent Show!
That time has come round again to help celebrate the children's talent across the school. We saw an amazing variety of talent on stage ranging from singing, dancing, musicians and comedy. Well done to all our contestants. They kept us entertained all afternoon and was enjoyable to watch. Thank you to our wonderful Y6 girls: Emily and Lily-Mae who hosted the show, and in the role of Stage management crew, Molly and Angel. Also to our Judges, Mrs Croft, Mr Pike and Mr Sharples. It was also great to have the support of the parents who came to watch and help celebrate their child's or children's talent.

Some post-SATs outdoor maths for Year 6.
This includes some attempts at curve stitching on the playground using chalk and string on the fence. We also visited the churchyard St Pancras to investigate data related questions such as, 'In which season do most people die?'
Children's University Graduation Ceremony.
The children who accumulated at least 100 hours in their Children's University passport were invited to the Graduation Ceremony at Plymouth University.
We had a fantastic evening where the children celebrated their success and were awarded for their achievements. They were dressed to impress with a graduation cap and gown provided by the organisation and enjoyed throwing their cap in the air at the end of the ceremony, as part of the graduation tradition.
We were also entertained by a dance school who kicked off the ceremony with a brilliant dance routine and then later enjoyed a tasty buffet.

Football At GOALS

The Great Ham Drive Space Walk
We walked along Ham Drive to try and understand the vast scale of the Solar System. We used a ball for the Sun (20 cm in diameter), blu tack for most of the planets (e.g Jupiter 2.2 cm) and a pin head for Mercury and Pluto.
A trundle wheel was used to calculate the distances so that they were in proportion to each other- Mercury was 'only' 10 m from the Sun and the Earth 26 m. We were truly astonished at how far away Neptune was- all the way down to the junction with Dryburgh Crescent! In the afternoon, a group managed to walk to Pluto, a full 1 km away and beyond the entrance to Mayflower! And it was still the size of a pin head!
